The industrial design and weight of the camera are both reminiscent of point-and-shoot cameras, and on the horizontal edge is a dual-press shutter button for holding the phone like a traditional camera.

On the back of the Ektra phone is a large 5-inch HD touchscreen with a digital interface that features DSLR-style dial, part of what Kodak calls “a tactile camera experience.” The dial allows you to shoot with manual settings, adjusting shutter speed and ISO.
