A few years back, Kodak’s stakes were dropping as smartphones began to take over the need of a specialised camera. They were maintaining their mainstream relevance through Pitbull’s hit, “Give Me Everything Tonight” as he rhymed Kodak with Kodak. The Ektra smartphone provides photographers with control similar to using a DSLR camera.
The Ektra’s custom camera app allow users to use preset modes such as bokeh, macro and sport. Or they manually control settings such as exposure, focus and shutter speed. It has a 21-megapixel camera with f2.0 aperture and a 13-megapixel front-facing camera with f2.2 aperture. The coating on the lenses permits more light to reach the sensor, hence, creating better images in low light. Also, the lens decreased sensor noise, brightens underexposed areas and assists in stabilising the blur from slow shutter speeds. The name and style of the phone pays tribute to the initial camera model that released in 1941. We can say that they’ve done well to showcase the vintage design.
