For the first time in a number of years, Eastman Kodak will have its name on an instant camera.

The company has announced that it will brand a camera that is actually being made a New Jersey manufacturer, called C+A Global.

The camera is called the “Kodak Printomatic,” and the point-and-shoot camera produces color or black and white photos in a 2 x 3” format.  The company says the prints are durable, water and tear-resistant.

It uses something called “Kodak Zink Photo Paper” and a memory card, so it actually is going from the digital image onto a paper photo.

The camera retails for around $70 and will be available later this month.  The company says it can be used for everything from graduations to family gatherings, as well as people who want to quickly assembly scrap books.

Kodak used to make in instant camera back in the 1970s and 80s.
