As the cameras in smartphones have improved over the years most of us rely increasingly less on dedicated digital cameras to take photos on our travels as the convenience of a smartphone reigns supreme. For those with a keener interest in photography however there isn’t much that can replace a good DSLR camera, at least that was until Kodak released the KODAK EKTRA, a smartphone designed with photographers in mind.
Featuring a 21-megapixel fast focus camera sensor with f2.0 aperture and a 13-mega-pixel front facing camera with Phase Detection Auto Focus PDAF and f2.2 aperture, the phone is attempting to narrow the gap between your typical smartphone and a DSLR.
At the core of the smartphone is its super fast HELIO X20 Decacore processor which will help power the Android Marshmallow operating system. Taking care of the camera will be a custom built app that will allow a range of adjustments in real time, from HDR, Landscape, Night-mode, Sport and more all from a SLR-style selection dial. The phone will start at £449 and be available in Europe later this year.
