There is still no word on when a Kodak-branded compact system camera (CSC) will appear, with its maker set to miss the planned u2018third quarteru2019 launch date next week.

The S1, which will adopt the micro-four-thirds format, was first announced in January and a model went on show at an event in China shortly afterwards.

It is being developed under a licensing agreement with US company JK Imaging and was due to go on sale in the third quarter of 2013.

However, as the 30 September approaches, a UK spokesman was this week told that an official announcement will be made at a later date.
