Kodak Just Introduced A New Smartphone And Its Every Photographers Dream Come True




The last time Kodak was relevant, many of us were still in school. But, they've emerged from the ashes, and while photography is still their main focus, they've also announced a new smartphone called the Ektra.

For those who don't remember, Kodak had released a camera called Ektra back in 1941. Even though it didn't do too well, some of the features on that camera were way ahead of their time.

Back to the present, the current Ektra smartphone comes with a 21-megapixel fast-focus camera on the back and a 13-megapixel front-facing camera.

If that isn't enough to excite you, it also comes with an SLR-style dial which lets you choose from a number of settings including high-speed, HDR, macro, panorama, bokeh, and night-mode. It also has a manual mode where you can adjust ISO, exposure, focus, shutter speed, and white balance. 

Its ergonomic form and large lens makes it look somewhat like a point-and-shoot. It even has a dedicated dual-press shutter button.

The smartphone also comes with a pre-loaded app called Print which lets you place orders for physical copies of photographs you have taken. There are a number of phot-editing apps on this high-end smartphone too including Adobe Lightroom, Snapseed, and Prisma.

We don't have too much information on the availability for this smartphone right now, but from what we gather, it is only going to be available in select European markets. It has been priced at £449/€499 and will be available in December.
