If you are a photographer, there is no doubt that you’ve experienced the opportune photo moment and had forgotten your camera. Your smartphone is the closest available device, and you snap the shot. We all know, from personal experience, that most smartphones fall very short from the mark. Well, thanks to the Kodak Ektra that will never be an issue again. Designed with photographers in mind, the Ektra is, essentially, a camera turned into a smartphone. Crystal clear photos and videos, with all the perks of a smartphone, the Ektra delivers.
The Kodak Ektra sports the look of a camera that comes from the 1940’s but it doesn’t hold back on photography tech. The curved DSLR-like grip and top shutter button also gives it the feel of a camera. The smartphone features an intuitive touchscreen DSLR dial with haptic touch. It also comes with a customizable manual mode, as well as, adjustable shutter speed and ISO rating. Furthermore, the Ektra also features a horizontal two step shutter release and extensive scene mode selection. Check out the video below.
In addition to these properties, the Ektra boasts a 21-megapixel main camera. The lens also comes with Kodak’s non-reflective lens coating and an f2.0 Aperture. It also features optical image stabilization and auto focus. The front-facing camera is perfect for crystal clear selfies at 13-megapixels. Overall, you’ll be pleased to know that it also comes with phase detection auto focus (PDAF) and HDR imaging.
For videos, the Ektra boasts the ability to capture video in Ultra-HD 4K resolution. The phone itself has a 5” full HD IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080p. It also has a 32GB expandable memory and a 3GB ram.
