    Good update today.

    It's moving along and they have done a lot.

    But they got 20,000 wrong lenses, so a bit of a delay.

    My third 'affordable' camera...

    Except for a few crabby folks most backers seem to on board and very understanding of the delay. I just hope I can extract that film holder/development module cleanly so I can make my own instant picture camera. I think they could sell a goodly number of just that module to DIY types, of which I am one.

    Today's update with video of the factory.

    Let's see if the embed works.

    Nope! Go to the KS

    Just ordered on the preorder. And yes, curious about extracting that Instax back once I've had my fun with the cardboard one. Now which will I receive first, my Jollylook or my Intrepid....?

    I think a lot of DIY folks backed this thing hoping to adapt to a better lens/shutter setup. I wish that after they fill backer and pre-orders they offer just the developing/film holder module. I would imagine they could sell a few hundred world wide.

    I think it is shipping. No notification on KS or by email.

    But some kind of 'Shutter' is in transit from China to me.

    I didn't order any shutters.

    UPS says, 'Shipper: SHANGHAI SHUTTER TECHNOLOGY LIMITED'.

    Delayed until next day, whatever that means.

    Well that would be a surprise. Guess I should order some Instax Mini film from B&H before the price goes up again. I notice it is going up and up these last two months.

    KS update that just arrived in my email says that manufacturing is progressing OK except that the bodies will have to wait unfinished for a bit as they have to redo all of the bellows. So whatever is coming to you, Randy, is probably something else.

    Yep, I just read that.

    The only other possibility is a 30X40" poster I ordered 4 days ago. It said 2 to 3 weeks.
