My New Kodak Digital Camera was Not Made by Kodak
This is the fourth digital camera I have owned – the rest have been stolen. In Costa Rica, where I live – causal theft is common, and it not considered a crime – legally. Your handy little digital camera will disappear quickly – if not watched carefully.
When I unpacked this new toy of mine, I was surprised to find it was made by JK Imaging, Ltd. It licenses the trademark Kodak – from the film company, that no longer makes cameras itself.
I wish I could tell you how wonderful this new miracle is – but that would not be truthful.
I started out taking few pictures of some railroad tracks, that had been used as telephone poles, but had been bent out of shape. I could not see the tracks on the screen – because I was looking into a brightly-lit sky in the background. The pictures did not come out at all, because I could not see what I was doing, for the life of me.
The camera uses the same basic technology as that used by a smartphone – only it has a much better lens. It is made for taking standard pictures of people and their pets – not telephone poles.
The next long bus ride I take, I will take a video out of the window of the bus – showing the depressing buildings along the road. They really are ugly.
