JK Imaging tosses Kodak onto Micro Four Thirds bandwagon (pictures)

The Kodak PixPro S-1 doesn't look like a clone of any competitors, but aspects of it do bear a striking resemblance to some.

I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

LAS VEGAS -- Kodak is planning to roll out this not-unattractive, not-terribly-expensive, but not-terribly innovative Micro Four Thirds-based interchangeable-lens camera later this year. The PixPro S-1 has decent specs, including a 16.8-megapixel sensor, 3-inch tilting 920,000-pixel display, Wi-Fi and 5fps continuous-shooting mode. It will ship with a slowish 12-45mm f3.5-6.3 collapsible lens; the collapsing mechanism looks a lot like Olympus' original design for its 14-42mm lens, and the camera uses sensor-shift image stabilization like Olympus as well. There's a second lens, a 42.5-160mm, as well as a spotting scope that may be part of a second bundle.
