Looks like Olympus Mini remake...with a mode dial (which is great). Would be interesting to see M4/3 Kodak lens review. Thanks for the news!

It looks interesting and a bit Olympus like but another make of micro four thirds can't be bad.

It'll be interesting to see a review and the price when the time comes.

It's not really Kodak is it? Just some other brand that has bought the right to the Kodak name....as with Polaroid kit.

and produced by a company with no tech or photographic history.

As said above, JK have no [as far as I know] digital photographic experience, but I'm sure they obtained expert help and guidence, plus it may well be made by one of the far East producers for JK.

In the 35-mm days Kodak had a reputation for marketing excellent cameras under their brand name Kodak and Retina, all or most made in Germany to a very high standard.
Hugo's right, its a purchased name, but that's pretty common throughout industry these days.

However, I hope it reviews well and sells well if only to keep the Kodak name on a camera. aggree, another M/4/3 format brand can't be a bad thing.

You no longer need to have a photographic history to build camera`s.

It been many years since Kodak built a camera, does it really matter, JK have acquired brand licensing.

It could end up helping sales of M4/3 in north America were the market is still pretty small for CSC`s, Kodak is an all American brand after all, no one ever complained that vivitar lenses and flash units were never made by vivitar Smile
