    That "new" Kodak 35mm SLR camera...

    Anyone remember it? Anyone know if it's going to happen? Anyone care?

    I thought it'd be neat, even if Kodak had nearly nothing to do with the creation and design of the thing.

    I believe there is still a viable niche market available for this type of camera: the entry-level photography student. Not all of them are willing to buy 20yo used cameras for their school work. Instructors will recommend (demand?) cameras such as this, and the students will buy them. Plus, at $200 for a camera, lens and flash, that's less than the cost of a single math or chemistry textbook.

    while there is a market for new entry level film cameras, that niche is allready being filled by importers like vivitar. Unless Kodak plans to invest in new technology to do something exiting, I think the market will answer with a yawn.

    I give it 6 months.

    Initially Kodak were working with Vivitar, but it all fell through. Vivitar don't make anything they out source and always have done.

    Whoever Kodak work with they have to ensure reliability, that's sadly missing in many Chinese made camera's but is easy to improve on quite quickly.

    If Kodak did come out with this camera, I may buy it. A. To try it out. B. To show my support of analog film and cameras.

    Does anyone think that they will be developing a new mount? I am almost certain that they will work off of the existing Vivitar mounts. I think it would be a dumb move to try and develop a new mount. It's all about compatibility right?
