Updated: KODAK PLAYFULL Dual Camera Announced at CES Might never Be Releaed

KODAK PLAYFULL Dual Camera



Linking to the KODAK PLAYFULL Dual Camera here to keep track of it.

Looks like a great replacement for the Kodak Zi8.




Update 2/9/12:

Looks like this camera might never come out. :-(

Update on Kodak's Transformation
Kodak plans to phase out of the market for dedicated capture devices – digital cameras, pocket video cameras and digital picture frames – during 2012 to focus its Consumer Business on desktop inkjet, online and retail-based printing – areas that offer the most significant opportunities for profitable growth. Kodak will continue to offer camera accessories and batteries, which are universally compatible with other brands.
We appreciate you choosing Kodak products. Please be assured that we will continue to honor all warranties, and provide technical support and service for our cameras, pocket video cameras and frames.

Questions:
Will Kodak still provide me with technical support and honor my warranty?

Yes. Kodak will continue to honor all warranties and provide technical support and service for its cameras, pocket video cameras and frames.

Kodak just introduced new digital cameras and a pocket video camera at CES. Will those still be available?

Kodak will work closely with its retail partners to ensure an orderly transition for the benefit of consumers and our partners. However, it is likely that some of the products announced at CES will not be launched.

Can I continue to purchase Kodak cameras, pocket video cameras and frames?

Yes. Kodak will continue to sell its remaining inventory of cameras, pocket video cameras and frames.

Will you continue to support the Pulse digital frame solution and Share Button software for customers who did and will purchase those products?

Yes, Kodak will maintain the Pulse network solution and Share Button solution for customers who purchased the products as legally required by local country regulations. Kodak will continue to honor all warranties, and will continue to provide technical support and service for its cameras, pocket video cameras and frames.
This new camera had some cool features.

Maybe dedicated pocket HD video cameras are being supplanted by devices like the iPhone?

What do you think?

  1. Seems so, Steve. Still, not everyone wants an all-inclusive device. HD video devices seem to be pushing me toward the iPhone. But what if I want to record a 2-hour talk? Thoughts?

  2. Anything with enough memory for 2 hours would be fine. You could also think about using a webcam and recording to your computer. Then there's the live streaming option like Ustream or Livestream where you can archive online.
