I also want to get it, but first want to know if Kodak will continue to produce s8.

It doesn't matter as Super 8 negative cartridges are available from Pro8MM in Burbank and they use the same cartridge type.

I'll wait til they have one in S16. Super 8 was cool for a bit but at some point you have to move on.

Hi Matthew et. al.,
We've earlier made a statement about our current platform being able to support also 16mm which is true however we are not planning to do a 16mm variant of our camera at present time nor in the foreseeable future (next couple of years) since there are already many good 16mm cameras available on the market.
A big drive for 16mm (except it being a larger format) is the use of reel material instead of the cartridge which allows longer filming time which I'd say is the major drawback to general super-8 and we'll be bringing out a special magazine option for our camera that holds 200ft reels to solve this.
