Hi Chris, this is a question for Kodak, I think . As far as I know we have to wait for it some more months. In Germany there is a saying: "Gut Ding braucht Weile"... (good think takes time)

I fear it may be longer than a few months, especially if they only produce a limited number initially. I don't know how few they will release, but I bet they are all spoken for.

A last update: +++ONLY 48 HOURS TO GO+++ The Super 8 Web Portal has collected 25,002 Euro so far, 155 backers. Thanks a lot to all who helped to bring this project into reality. The English version has been funded, but everybody can still get a subscription for the website. For the German page we still need 4,998 Euro. Will we do it? https://www.kickstar...r-8-web-portal/

Funded! A big thank you to all 178 backers who supported our project with a total of Euro 26,972 - there were also a lot of companies that took advertisement packages. A minimum of seven backers came directly from this forum - as the tracking says.
We will start THE SUPER 8 WEB PORTAL end of August! Let's hope that Super 8 will have a bright future. And of course we will publish articles about the other small formats for filmmaking too .

Congratulations, happy to back it.
If the site is subscription based, doesn't that negatively impact what advertisers might pay? Smaller audience, less reach?

Hi Will, thanks for backing and thanks for your question. There will be some public pages and a lot of pages/archives/film shows behind the paywall. Every advertiser will find his banners on all pages, on the public ones and the subcription pages too.

I talked to Kodak costumer service 2 weeks ago about the new camera release, and it was your guess is as good as mine, but it could be any day. All he knew for sure was that the cameras will be shipping from Reno, NV. I hope it's soon because i'm out of film now, and don't plan to order any more until the new program is up and running... and i have a new camera to shoot it with.

The Super 8 Web Portal proudly presents its address: www.super8.tv and everybody who likes to subscribe is invited to do so. On the page is already a little gift for all of you:).
I am sorry I missed out on the Kickstarter funding. I was a little late to the scene.
I will be signing up for the 2 year subscription though.
Thanks for doing this!
