Kodak is launching a new version of its popular half-frame camera, introducing the Ektar 35N which adds some extra features and some new retro-inspired designs.

The Kodak Ektar H35 has been one of the surprise camera launch successes in the last couple of years. This retro-styled camera shoots 35mm film using the almost-forgotted half-frame format that squeezed twice the number of exposures from a roll. With the cost of film having risen even faster than inflation, the idea that you get 72 exposures from a 36-exposure film is great for the cost-conscious – and as the camera is reusable, it is more environmentally friendly than ever-popular disposable cameras.
