Kodak cameras to continue.. but without Kodak
By Andrew Hudson Published: January 7, 2013 Updated: June 12, 2016
Kodak, the venerable photography pioneer, has licensed the rights to make Kodak-branded cameras to California-based JK Imaging, a subsidiary of global supplier JA Capital Holdings. The agreement includes cameras, pocket video cameras, and portable projectors. JK Imaging plans to launch its first products in the second quarter of 2013.
“When we announced our plan to exit the camera business last year, we said we would explore licensing opportunities for the brand in this category. The JK Imaging team has global experience and expertise in the industry.”
— Laura Quatela, Kodak’s president of personalized imaging
“With more than a century of imaging firsts, there is great significance and value in the Kodak name.”
— JK Imaging CEO Jack Atick, who is chairman of JA Capital Holdings
