Prices are yet to be announced, but when speaking to The Wall Street Journal, Kodak chief Jeff Clarke said that the film cartridges will cost somewhere between $50 and $75 (approx. 35 - 50). The camera itself is expected to sit somewhere between $400 and $750 (approx. 275 - 500) and is due to be released late this year.

"This is no longer the classic script of a war of digital versus analog," added Clarke. "What it really is now is the complementary characteristics of both."
