    This is incorrect. From Kickstarter TOS:

    Outside of angel investors, only way to bring the price way down is for people to buy them when the prices are up, ie. now, so that they can realize economies of scale. Chicken and egg problem, but...

    No. Three quarters of current funds are coming from backers pledging 1000 USD or less. The whole purpose of the project was to find out if there's enough demand from the masses, instead of a few...

    As mentioned before several times, KS is not an investment, nor is it a pre-order. You are backing a project which would or could not be funded by more traditional means - and resurrecting instant...

    Re: new55 kickstarter has begun

    Many people don't seem to understand how KS works. It is not a pre-order, and you are certainly taking a risk in backing any project.

    But this project appears to be well researched, and they have...

    Re: new55 kickstarter has begun

    For those on the fence, I'd like to re-iterate: if the project doesn't reach the goal of $400k, they don't get any money, and the project will likely die for eternity. If you ever want to shoot with...

    They've made some strange choices with the rewards and marketing. T-shirts cost money, which is out of the development budget. I have a feeling that the target audience isn't exactly the type to get...

    Good point. One could add a dust filter to the fan, though.

    Less than six hours in a room at 20 or so degrees Centigrade. A fan would make it faster, but overnight is perfectly fine with me.

    It should be said that RAID is not suitable as only backup. In my opinion you're only backed up if you have at least one off-site backup, either in a cloud (I use Crashplan) and/or HDDs at a...

    Re: Best 4x5 Developing Tank

    2521 is the one that fits six 4x5 sheets. I use it, although I'm considering getting the larger one as it takes most of the day to develop 40+ sheets six at a time (E-6).

    The 2409 reel works well,...

    Use a vacuum cleaner. Don't use the nozzle: use the tube only so that it gets stuck to the fabric. Pretty sure you'll get every last bit of sand out that way.

    This is not about safety for the flashes, but the longevity of the PC port itself.
