After an almost eight-year wait since its unveiling at CES 2016, Kodak is finally preparing to release its Super 8 film camera.

The company has updated the camera's product page, introducing a "sign up to buy" button for potential customers to express their interest. According to Vanessa Bendetti, Kodak's global managing director for motion picture, the camera is expected to be available in limited quantities in the US starting December 4th, with subsequent releases in Canada, the UK, and other European markets.

The Super 8 camera costs $5,495, making it a fairly niche offering. Despite the high cost, it incorporates modern features, including a four-inch LCD viewfinder, a microSD card for audio recording, and a Micro HDMI output for connecting an external monitor.

Notably, the price differs significantly from Kodak's initial estimates, as the company initially targeted a range of $400 to $750 in 2016, later adjusted it to $2,500 to $3,000 in 2018.
