Getting tired of the polythene wrapper look of digital yet?  Well, Kodak is working on giving filmmakers more image-creating options by making film more functional and easier to use.

super8_pressReleaseImageRecently, Kodak announced plans to offer newly-designed Super 8 cameras with “digital features” along with a host of post-production services and tools. Details are preliminary and limited, but it looks to be a complete shooting and processing solution, including built-in sound recording, crystal sync at all camera speed, film prints for projection, and 4K digital transfers.

Yes, shooting your movie with your DLSR will still be less expensive than Super 8 film, but then what do you really want… “plastic wrapped” see-it-all-the-time digital or beautiful long-lasting film?
