    So, when will they be coming out with a Nikon 1 look-alike? 🙂

    Is Kodak going to die or not? I hope they stick with film/printing. Seeing these press releases is like watching the ugliest person in school look for a prom date

      They already stopped producing slide film and are in the process of selling the rest of their film business. They’ve already sold their digital sensor division. And now they’ve even sold their patent portfolio. Kodak has virtually stopped being a productive company, all what’s left now is the name. With which they might be able to generate some humble income with for some time. But finally the name, too, will fade.

    hope not Nikon one like cheap shitty sensor inside but a APS-C or something similar in size.

    Kodak WAS a serious company. I predict a 1/2.5″ sensor and a bunch of really crappy f3.5-f6 glass. An object completely incapable of photography, to go along with their compact offerings.

  • Long live Kodak !

    They should come out with a high-class FX mirrorless called Kodachrome – with their own sensor technology – this could save them.
