Kodak Reintroduces Super 8 Film in New Plan to Repeat Previous Bankruptcy


Kodak has announced that it will reintroduce the Super 8 Camera for creating movies on film. According to Kodak CEO Jeff Clarke, “This camera will allow Kodak to waste millions of dollars manufacturing a product that nobody wants.” Jeff Clarke went on to add, “Not only will customers be able to spend 400-750  dollars on a camera they don’t want, they will be able to spend an additional 50-75 dollars on film cartridges they don’t need.”

Kodak last produced a Super 8 Camera in 1982, and the new design is reminiscent of Kodak’s earlier cameras with the added feature of a digital viewing screen. With this camera, customers are able to record their movies on analog film that requires chemical processing.

January 7, 2016: Kodak really is introducing the Super 8 film camera, but as far as I know, it is not part of a concerted plan to repeat their first bankruptcy, although that may happen.
