KODAK EKTRA Smartphone Designed for Photographers

Kodak has unveiled the KODAK EKTRA Android Smartphone, they say it is designed especially keeping Photographers in mind. I don’t know how successful this phone will going to be in this market which is already filled with many good camera based smartphones. But one thing for sure as soon as I saw this it gave me a Nostalgic feeling, the Kodak logo was enough to bring a smile on my face. For old school people like me who had this logo as part of their life for a long long time will surely love to bring this Logo once back in their World. And not to forget the Casing with this Phone is what I call icing on the cake.

Original Kodak Ektra was a very advanced 35mm rangefinder camera which was released in 1941 Before the World War II. Kodak says this Android Smartphone is the reincarnation of that famous model. This phone is being produced by the UK-company Bullitt Group, which is licensing the Kodak brand name for the product.

At the heart of the KODAK EKTRA Smartphone is a 21-megapixel fast focus camera sensor with f2.0 aperture, and an industry leading 13-megapixel front-facing camera with Phase Detection Auto Focus PDAF and f2.2 aperture. The custom built camera app is controlled by an intuitive haptic touch, SLR-style Scene Selection Dial, where adjustments are made in real time via a range of settings including HDR, Landscape, Portrait, Macro, Sport, Night-time, Panorama and Bokeh, alongside a Smart Auto mode which auto-selects the best conditions for your photographs. In Manual mode, more advanced users can adjust exposure, ISO, focus, white balance and shutter speed, with the results being visible on the screen as changes are made.

The KODAK EKTRA Smartphone includes editing software from Snapseed, providing exceptional tools to edit images on-the-go, without having to download any additional apps. I Myself use Snapseed for editing my Mobile photographs and found it good enough for Mobile editing.
