    In The Era Of The Connected Camera, The Point & Shoot Commits Seppuku

    The big brand camera companies are committing seppuku in front of our eyes. It’s fascinating. Last week, I bought a brand new Canon S95 camera. It’s a great point & shoot. Maybe the best out there right now. It captures beautiful 10-megapixel images. It’s great in low-light. It’s fast. And it shoots HD video. I anticipate I’ll take about 5 percent of my… Read More

  • Back To School: Printers

    Your goal in school is to use your own printer as little as possible. Most schools have their own black and white printers on call 24/7 but sometimes you may need to print out a few snapshots for friends or a nice color cover for your last-minute essay on fish farming in ancient Mesopotamia as it relates to Shakespeare’s plays. My goal with creating this guide is to offer you a few… Read More

  • Gadgets of days gone by: Kodak DC50, my first digital camera

  • Kodak, RIM file International Trade Commission complaint against Apple re: image preview patents

    The International Trade Commission must have a pile of Apple-related complaints so high it can… reach some high place.

Kodak says parts of the iPhone’s interface infringe on Kodak patents relating to… Read More

  • Kodak's Playsport: fully waterproof successor to the Zx1 HD pocket cam

    We’ve always enjoyed Kodak’s pocket cams — compact, decent video, and solid price. The newest one is pretty awesome; I got to put my hands all over it last night and it has a good feel to it. It’s smaller, but feels more solid than the Zi6, Zi8, or Zx1. And of course it’s totally waterproof. They had it in a fish bowl and it functioned just fine. I don’t… Read More

  • Kodak launches Slice touchscreen camera

  • Kodak Hooks Up With TweetPhoto For Realtime Photo Sharing Lovefest

    Imaging tech juggernaut Kodak is pretty keen on utilizing social media to connect with current and potential customers, boasting a presence on such sites as Facebook, YouTube and Flickr.

  • Kodak outs the 1080p Zi8 pocket camcorder

    Oh man, we nailed it. Remember that dumb Kodak viral video we posted where a marketing dude was showing off the latest Kodak product but it was blurred out Japanese porn-style? Well, we said it would be an updated pocket camcorder and it’s a new, 1080p-recording pocket camcorder. Read More

  • Video: Look! An unannounced Kodak thingamajig

    Yes, this is a viral video and yes, I’m posting it. But according to the YouTube discription, Kodak is announcing the product blurred in the video on July 29. I’m guessing it’s a new pocket camcorder along the same lines as the Zi6. Any other guesses? Read More
