A brief note: This item was not supposed to be released until 4AM Eastern time tomorrow, however due to a leak Kodak has dropped its NDA.
Kodak Professional Debuts DCS Pro 14n Digital SLR Camera with Industry-Leading 13.89 Million Total Pixels and Competitive Price PointVariable Resolution, Ease-of-Use Ideal for Portrait, Wedding Photographers COLOGNE, Germany, September 24 - Kodak Professional, a division of Eastman Kodak Company, which introduced the industry's first professional digital camera in 1991, today announced the latest addition to its camera family, the DCS Pro 14n digital camera, an SLR with the industry's first 35-mm size CMOS sensor (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) in an SLR camera. At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas nine digital Kodak camera’s were introduced.

Kodak EasyShare Z1285 digital camera - Color Science Image Processing ChipThe exclusive Kodak Color Science Chip provides vibrant, true-to-life colors in every picture. The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. Note: If you intend to use an image you find here for commercial use, please be aware that some photos do require a model or property release. The pcd file extension is used for images captured in Kodak's multi-resolution format called Photo Compact Disc graphic file. The Kodak Precision Color Management System (KPCMS) lets you control the color mode and display of Photo CD images by specifying profiles for the source film and the destination output device. Note: You can open PCD files in one of the resolutions in Adobe Photoshop but cannot save files in the Photo CD format.
Most professional photo and image editing software, such as Adobe Photohosp are able to open *.pcd files. The very same programs that process digital RAW files can export them to typical photo formats like JPG. Click on the link to get more information about listed programs for import pcd file action. As our coverage of the Kodak announcement was not completed at this earlier time, this item has been updated several times as we completed the separate parts and posted them.
The new camera boasts a 13.89 million pixel CMOS sensor and provides variable resolution raw files.

The Kodak EasyShare Z1285 offers faster shutter speeds meaning you can capture the details in low light conditions and fast action situations.
A new high speed digital processor chip, advanced algorithms, and hardware acceleration features let the Z1285 make simultaneous, split-second decisions to produce rich, vibrant, true-to-life colors in almost any lighting situation. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. Up to 5 levels of quality are inside the PCD format ranging from thumbnail (lowest quality, small size files) to 18 MB files for high quality use. In particular, two things about this camera are likely to make your jaw drop; the sensor, and the expected price. To use our RSS service you will need an RSS reader, of which there are many available online.
The Kodak Z1285camera automatically selects from ISO 100 to ISO 3200 based on lighting conditions. Every time you click the shutter, the Kodak Color Science Chip performs an instantaneous and advanced analysis of collected scene data to identify and adjust multiple factors that influence picture quality. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. King, General Manager, Consumer Output, and Vice President, Eastman Kodak Company, as well as executives from the two top installing retailers in the US, Grant Pill, CVS; and Joe Lisuzzo and Sharon Whibben from Wal-Mart. The Kodak DCS Pro 14n Digital SLR features a whopping 13.89 megapixel full 35mm-frame sized CMOS image sensor, and a pricetag expected to be just US$4000 (street)!


The easy-to-use DCS Pro 14n is Kodak's sixth-generation professional digital camera and is primarily designed for professional portrait, wedding, event and commercial photographers, but will likely be popular with advanced amateurs as well. According to Kodak the camera incorporates a professional quality Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon lens which delivers high quality sharpness and remarkable precision. Whether you shoot your pictures vertically or horizontally, view them right-side-up with the orientation sensor.
Scene light source is detected and adjustments are made to capture bright whites and true, vivid colors under difficult lighting conditions, fluorescent, tungsten, or daylight. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. We had the opportunity to discuss the camera and the technologies behind it with Kodak's worldwide product manager for SLR cameras, Jay Kelbley. Built on a Nikon lens mount, it adds speed, as well as quality, to the photographers' workflow through FireWire connectivity at a 12 MB per second transfer rate, nearly four times faster than previous Kodak Professional cameras. Scene content is analyzed for luminance, focal distance, subject matter orientation, and color to determine the correct exposure and capture the natural details, accurate flesh tones, and rich colors you see in your composition. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy.
What follows is a summation of the information he shared with us, and that available in the press materials. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US). Via the HD interface you can view your picture in High Definition on an HDTV or other HDTV devices.
But it is not only capturing HD still images, the Kodak Z1285 is also able to capture HD quality video with MPEG-4 compression.
Images can be saved as DCR raw files or Kodak Professional Extended Range Imaging (ERI) JPEG files. The optional Kodak EasyShare HDTV dock lets you view your photos on your HDTV and elevate your high definition experience. Tag it using the exclusive on-camera Share button and it will be ready to print or e-mail later. Kodak ERI-JPEG files serve as another form of picture protection for photographers, especially in situations where re-shooting is inconvenient.
Connect to your KODAK HDTV Dock however you want; place your Kodak EasyShare Z1285 camera on it, use an SD card, USB flash drive, or card reader attached to the USB port The camera can playback HD video at 720p and 1080i resolution. Use the Favorites feature to keep your special pictures close without filling up your internal memory. Kodak ERI-JPEGs are created by and stored in-camera on removable media for later color correction or manipulation, and provide two-stops of exposure latitude and extended color space within a JPEG workflow, a benefit no other competitor offers. The camera can write to both storage media, and the image can be sent to each card simultaneously in any of the available formats. The Kodak Professional DCS Pro 14n Digital Camera is leveraged from a Nikon lens mount and the magnesium body is more durable and robust than plastic digital cameras based on similar camera platforms. The DCS Pro 14n uses cast magnesium encasements for a solid, rugged camera body instead of the plastic encasements commonly used by other manufacturers. The robust body includes a vertical trigger that works in conjunction with the camera's auto orientation sensor.
This enables automatic rotation of the image as it moves to a computer for manipulation, saving photographers time and improving workflow, hallmarks of Kodak Professional's efforts to make digital easier for customers. Simplifying Digital, Free Firmware Upgrades Heeding photographers' calls to simplify the transition to digital photography, the DCS Pro 14n includes features for new and more advanced digital shooters. In the advanced mode, the user can adjust many more capture, resolution and storage settings, among others. Novices and advanced users will be equally at home with the camera's user-friendly functionality," said Kelbley. Whether it's a beginner or experienced digital photographer ready to move up to a pro series camera, the DCS Pro 14n will help users explore new territory and upgrade along the way." The camera is capable of capturing images at two frames per second, for a full burst of up to eight frames in full-resolution mode.


Because the features of the DCS Pro 14n are based on Kodak Professional firmware and not hard-wired within the camera, the camera can be enhanced and easily upgraded with free firmware downloads from Kodak Professional. Free firmware upgrades essentially give photographers a "new" camera whereas other manufacturers require the purchase of an entirely new camera system to receive the latest enhancements. Unlike competitors' cameras, the DCS Pro DCS 14n can be taken to Kodak Service Qualified Sites to enable a deeper burst depth (from 8 frames to 18) by doubling the camera's built in RAM buffer from 256MB to 512MB image memory.
Kodak Professional leverages Nikon's digital through the lens (DTTL™) flash metering in the DCS Pro 14n, which represents a major step forward for the technology. Photographers can expect near perfect flash exposures with the DCS Pro 14n, an improvement over many existing professional digital cameras.
Unlike competitors' digital cameras, the DCS Pro 14n provides improved image quality and better-exposed images, resulting in more sellable images for photographers. It includes the latest versions of Kodak Professional DCS Photo Desk and Camera Manager software, and supports DCR FFM and Kodak Professional ERI-JPEG format and is compatible with Kodak ProShots Studio Software Suite, an online image management and display tool that links the photographer to both client and lab in an effective digital workflow for film-based and digital camera images.
The DCS Pro 14n is the latest in six generations of single-lens-reflex KODAK PROFESSIONAL Digital Cameras and full digital workflow systems. The Pro 14n is a feature-rich digital SLR with a new electronics architecture, new camera body, and a full-size CMOS image sensor. While the DCS Pro 14n does share features and components with some of Nikon's own cameras, this particular body is custom-manufactured for Kodak's use. Kodak enhanced the body with additional professional features, such as a vertical "smart" shutter release, magnesium alloy encasements, and a 10-pin remote release terminal compatible with most Nikon accessories. In addition to the new image sensor, the DCS Pro 14n has a wide range of professional features that ensure superior image quality and performance. To achieve "true" RAW status for the lower resolution image files, the entire 13.9 mp resolution is read off the sensor at 12 bits dynamic range. Then a proprietary image-processing algorithm "interpolates and resamples" the high resolution into a lower resolution while keeping the 12-bit dynamic range. The resulting image is specially color encoded and losslessly compressed to reduce the file size. This technique achieves very high quality and low artifacts, while reducing the native resolution.
The powerful DSP engine in the Pro 14n performs all this processing in-camera, so users can benefit from more images per storage card for assignments that do not require the highest resolution. All professional photographers who require high-resolution and high-quality digital images, including portrait, social, wedding, school, event, and commercial photographers, will benefit most. Since the DCS Pro14n has a full 35 mm film size sensor, the focal length magnification is 1. This means that 35mm lenses operate as they would with film, and will show the same full image that the lens was designed to image. The DCS Pro 14n camera is based on a significantly different sensor and electronics architecture that makes use of more advanced technology to enable this top-end ISO improvement.
Kodak currently is not publicly discussing any plans to create a Canon EOS-mount version of the DCS Pro 14n Digital Camera.
The DCS Pro 14n will have a one-year warranty, with service provided at Kodak Service Centers worldwide.
Various extended warranty programs are available through Kodak dealers on a country-by-country basis. Please contact a local authorized dealer of KODAK PROFESSIONAL DCS Digital Cameras for detailed pricing information.
