Yup, two years later and it still isn’t out. And the price has kept going up. Honestly it’s been extremely frustrating with all the delays and price increases. I’ll be honest, I was much more into this camera when it was going to be $400-750. Right now they say it’ll retail somewhere around $2000-2500, with a release date of Summer 2018. But it does officially exist:
Although I still want one bad, anymore I’ll have to wait and see just what the final price will be because it seems that even Kodak employees don’t have a final answer. But if this thing’s gonna cost $2500 I don’t see how I or other students would be able to afford it. The universities should be able to, though…I hope I can borrow one from mine!
One good thing in there, it seems that if you’re a fan of developing your own movie film (and I’ve met a few who are), you’re not automatically required to buy processing/scanning with the super 8 cartridge so I see that as a plus. Kodak’s online store has gone back and forth between offering and not offering 16mm and 35mm film, and the price of super 8 film randomly fluctuates, I haven’t seen it advertised at what it should be since summer of 2017.
