    Not so Jolly now

    It may have been ok and I did not turn the crank backward as they warn against that, but the reset gears have slipped their axel holes.

    Maybe repairable, maybe a fatal flaw. This processing back is the fanciest piece of the Not So Jolly. Perhaps too thin of plastic used to hold the gears in place.

    The gears rewind the 'kicker' as I call it, that pushes the cover off the film pack and onto the rollers. Never happened for me.

    Well, that's as far as I can go until I get new glasses. So I packed up the bits until then.

    The film processor part is easily removable after taking off the winder, which has a very tiny screw. Then you just carefully pry it out. It is not glued or fastened in any way. There are 2 locating pins for it at the top. Lift from the bottom and spread the case a bit to clear the winder shaft.

    Hey, anyone's welcome to post in a relevant existing "everything else" thread (Polaroids and Fujiroids, say) or start a new one!

    As it comes out of the box, at least, it desperately needs the straws.

    Agreed. The mysterious straws are 'props'!

    Someone else will need to post the first 'roids taken.

    Cheap but not very cheerful.

    A trifle

    Sorry Mark about the other day. Some things set me off.

    Well, for the last 6-8 months they, Jollylook, have been going on about how they don't want to ship the camera until it's "prefect". After reading all the comments on the KS site and here, I figure they have given up on that idea and I might as well have tossed my $48 in the trash. Even the pack of film is worthless since I have nothing else to shoot it in. (Unless I spend another $56 for a Fuji camera from B&H.)
    I'd also give it a 50/50 chance that we will never hear from Oleg and the gang again.
    I might save the lens, stick it on a 4x5 focused at infinity, and stop it down to f64 to use as a tripod only 4x5 box camera. Focus should extend from about 4ft. to infinity.

    Well finally update #22, after stone cold silence for 40 days or so. Not much hope to get a working camera within the next 3-4 months, if what Jollylook says is correct and they can build reliable units maybe Nov-Dec 2018. This is a wild guess because there is no projected timeline is this update.

    Wonder of wonders, they actually responded to one of my questions in the 'comments' section. And a couple of days ago they answered several backer questions in the comments section. Perhaps they are realizing that radio silence is bad policy, for any Kickstarter creator. (especially if they intend to run additional KS campaigns)

    It looked like a good project for me. Sad to read what happened to you. And it's definitely not so good to keep silent completely as you said, plywood. Hope you guys get a working replacement soon.
