Kodak Ektra is a smartphone for photographers

Posted by

Kodak’s first smartphone was the largely unsuccessful Kodak IM5. Did you even remember that the IM5 existed? Anyway, its follow-up is here, the Kodak Ektra, tagged as a photography-first smartphone that’s about more than just megapixels. Will the Ektra do well where the IM5 failed?

Kodak says that the Ektra includes a handpicked studio of powerful applications, making it more than just a powerful camera but a mobile studio in the hands of people who care about quality photography.

I consider the fact that Kodak has embraced smartphones a brilliant pivot. The company was experiencing a decline because camera phones killed off regular film-based consumer cameras. And so, Kodak Phones was born in 2015.The move makes sense. What I worry about is the execution. And without great execution, the pivot isn’t going anywhere. Time will tell.

Meanwhile, I am here wondering whether the main camera uses a Xenon flash or not.
