Kodak Ektra is fitted with a 21 megapixel camera at the back and a striking 13 megapixel on the front. Developed for photography enthusiasts, the Kodak Ektra has easy to adjust portrait modes, an f2.0 aperture and optical image stabilization. The bokeh mode that comes with the phone’s camera allows users to create their own depth of field effects. As expected, users can manually adjust a number of settings such as white balance, ISO, shutter speed and more. This 4K camera is quite exciting; with Kodak announcing that users will be able to experiment with classic Kodak features such as Super 8 filters, vignettes and grains. These camera features mean that you will take more pictures will little or no editing.
