Originally announced in 2016, it took Kodak until 2023 to actually start the first regular production run. But finally, Kodak announced the limited production to begin and started taking customers on a wait list in November 2023. The first cameras were shipped to the customers on December 4th, 2023.

Apparently the camera mechanics are made by Logmar - see Logmar's "Humboldt" project
