I’m Sorry, Kodak Wants How Much For Its New Super 8 Camera?

The original Super 8 camera inspires nostalgia in every greying beardo with aspirations to make a film. The format was introduced back in 1965, and before VHS camcorders killed it in the 80s, it was the film stock of choice for budding filmmakers and family life chroniclers. A new Super 8 camera released 30-some years after Super 8 effectively died seems like a fun idea for people eager to relive the glory days or escape digital. Except in a blog last week Kodak claimed this thing will cost anywhere from $2500 to $3000 (£1,812 to £2,174; UK pricing and availability TBA).

How the Quest for a Perfectly Rational Calendar Created a 13th Month

A month is hardly a unit of measurement. It can start on any day of the week and last anywhere from 28 to 31 days. Sometimes a month is four weeks long, sometimes five, sometimes six. You have to buy a new calendar with new dates every single year. It’s a strange design. Read More >>
