    Sadly, I couldn't get my resources lined up in time to make a commitment in time.

    Your offering seems to be even more attractive or cost-effective lately as two different TravelWide body-only kits have gone off on The-Bay at +$300. the latest one (today) went for $350. this for a camera with very few features (by design).

    Hi Drew,

    Don't worry, we will open up some form of pre-order store soon, and you'll have another chance. You'll be in line after the KS backers, of course, but all is not lost! That's really crazy about the Travelwide sales. That's over twice the price of a Mercury, and as you say, it can do very little in comparison...

    Cheers,
    Zach

For a little while I was not sure you would reach the goal. My wife now says it is a Christmas gift to each other. The problem is once she gets interested in a piece of equipment she hogs it when we go out shooting but that is still far better than telling me I have too many cameras.

    Hi Ivan,

    Our Kickstarter film predicted this situation, so don't say we didn't warn you!

    But seriously, my gratitude to you and your wife for supporting the campaign!

    Somehow I missed that there was a ground glass. I like the idea of there being a longer lens availability. My gripe with the Travel Wide was that 90mm is too wide. In fact for me 150mm is too wide but doable for a small camera like this. But I didn't see a GG on the listing and I'm not focusing anything without a GG. I'll keep a watch out for the preorder.
