TWiP 447 – CES 2016 Round Up

It’s that time of year again. When nearly every technology company in existence reveals the new toys they’ve been feverishly working on. The annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas Nevada is a kind of mecca, for all things geek.

There’s no way any organization could cover everything that show has to offer, so in this episode we take a look at our favorite photography related announcements.

We also discuss Kodak’s move back into the world of film and Super 8. The panel has decidedly mixed opinions about this move. Which makes for a really interesting listen!

    I think Kodak’s announcement of the Super 8 camera is really fascinating and I’d consider getting one if I have the money saved up. I believe the cost of the film and processing are all rolled in together. So you’re essentially paying for the processing up front, which is why the price tag is $50-75. Then you just ship it back to Kodak and they develop, digitize it, and send the film back to it, without you paying them again (though you might have to pay for shipping or something). At least that’s my understanding of how it will work. This is key because it makes it really easy (albeit still pricey) for consumers to get into this medium.
