Kodak is primed to unveil a brand new handheld camcorder at CES, following on from the Zi8, as well as an entirely new type of camera, we’ve learned.
Through a highly placed source at Kodak, we’ve heard the company will launch a new type of snapper at CES in January, and while details are still scarce, it’s likely to be the talk of the floor as the world’s biggest gadget fair kicks off.
It’s not entirely clear whether Kodak will debut a new category of camera altogether, or a type of camera it has never made before. Could the Big K be about to launch its first ever SLR? The company already makes compact cameras and camcorders.
Whatever is unveiled, it’ll take pride of place alongside the follow-up to Kodak’s Zi8 pocket camcorder, which was slammed for having a less than catchy name when it launched earlier this year.
Mainstream titles such as the Boston Globe panned the Kodak Zi8, as having “dreadful” and “lame” moniker. However, Kodak went back to the drawing board and ran a competition to let fans pick the title of its next gadget. The winner will be announced at CES.
