Is Kodak the new Polaroid? That’s the question some were asking as the troubled brand returned to the CES expo in Las Vegas last week. It showcased its newest instant-print cameras and mobile photo printers from brand licensee C+A Global, including the Kodak Smile Classic Instant Print Digital Camera and Instant Digital Printer.
“The instant print category aligns perfectly with the Kodak brand,” said Joel Satin, VP of brand licensing at Eastman Kodak Company. “With a rich heritage going back more than a century, consumers continue to look to us to help capture their memories in an easy, accessible way. At CES 2019, we are highlighting products in our portfolio that speak to this strong connection with photography and imaging.”
