Screw 360-degree film cameras on drones or Vines on 16-megapixel smartphones. Kodak’s going old school with these little beauties. The design is inspired by the Super 8 fad from half a century ago, and these new cameras that shoot film on, well, actual film.
A month is hardly a unit of measurement. It can start on any day of the week and last anywhere from 28 to 31 days. Sometimes a month is four weeks long, sometimes five, sometimes six. You have to buy a new calendar with new dates every single year. It’s a strange design.
Kodak's about to have its own line of Android phones now, because sure. The company—now little more than a name to be slapped on products from all kinds of no-name manufacturers— will be showing off its first Android devices at CES in just over a week.
Kodak may be "a walking corpse of a company" according to some, but 120 years ago it was the first to offer consumers a chance to try out—and even own—a camera. Introduced in 1888, the Kodak No. 1 was the first camera marketed to average consumers. And thanks to a new set of images from the National Media Museum, we…
These days there's a mountain of extra data saved every time you snap a digital photo. So figuring out where and when a shot was taken requires minimal detective work. Back in the days of film it wasn't so easy, so Kodak built a camera in 1914 called the Autographic that let photographers sign and denote their shots…
Kodak has finally sold off the last bits of patent meat from its carcass, for $525 million, to Apple and Google.
It's not often that you hear that Apple and Google—both fighting for utter smartphone dominance—have teamed up on anything, but reports from Bloomberg say it's the case. And they're both going in on a half a billion dollars worth of Kodak patents.
Kodak is really closing out its era as a photographic monolith, opting to sell off its film business entirely. As the Wall Street Journal reports, Kodak will not only sell its print film production, but also its digital imaging kiosks, and the printers and scanners that go with them.
Leaders of large corporations often have a little bit of the crazy about them. Like, for instance, Kodak founder George Eastman, who, back in 1928, insisted that the official company calendar had to use 13 months.
Kodak may be going under, but apparently they could have started their own nuclear war if they wanted, just six years ago. Down in a basement in Rochester, NY, they had a nuclear reactor loaded with 3.5 pounds of enriched uranium—the same kind they use in atomic warheads.
After being purchased by the photo-hosting site Shutterfly for $23.8m last month, Kodak Gallery, the photo-hosting service of one-time giant Kodak, will be taken offline for good, July 2. Users of the service were notified today by email, along with a request to please notify Kodak no later than May 28 if they wish to…
Apple has been pursuing a patent lawsuit against Kodak over the rights to its LCD screen previews used in its digital cameras, printers and digital picture frames. But with Kodak in Chapter 11, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Allen Gropper has ordered Apple to back off, putting current lawsuits on hold and blocking any further…
Just a few weeks after filing for bankruptcy, Kodak says it will stop producing digital cameras, pocket video cameras, and digital picture frames in the first half of 2012. The move will reportedly save Kodak $100 million a year. Instead, the legendary camera company will focus its efforts on printers. Sad. We really…
Kodak's decision to stop producing Kodachrome film in 2009 left a hole in people's nostalgia-seeking hearts. This documentary short by Xander Robin takes us into Dwayne's Photo, the last remaining lab to develop the coveted film. It really shows how cumbersome and complex the process of developing film is/was, and…
Despite its recent strategy of "sue everybody for everything," Kodak has succumb to its financial pressures and filed for Chapter 11 business reorganization in New York. The iconic photography company isn't dead yet, however, just very broke.
With the shift to digital cameras, old-fashioned photomats are getting harder and harder to find. But this portable, Army-issue dark room has everything you need to develop your own prints wherever you are.
There aren't many details available yet, but Bloomberg is reporting that Kodak is suing Apple over four patent claims. Is it a last ditch effort for the near-bankrupt company to keep its head above water? Or a justified defense from a company with generations of intellectual property to its name? Well, both, probably.
Once the darling of the photography world, long-time film maker Kodak is close to filing for bankruptcy, according to the WSJ.
Oh, Kodak, once the acme of all things camera, now a stark lesson in Darwinism in technology. You adapt and evolve, or you die. It was revealed today that Kodak is shedding more than $70 million a month. Let's hold hands.
