    After a 2 year wait for the Travelwide (and even then with a helical that locked up tight) this newest delay is no big deal.

    New update just posted. Proposed ship date of March 25th (must be start of shipping as I cannot see shipping 10K cameras in one day). So, if nothing else goes wrong we may start to see cameras in April.

    OK, just did the ceremonial opening...

    Imagine a little hunk of cardboard and vinyl that's simultaneously seriously overengineered and irredeemably chintzy. I think it will take great patience and finesse to use without destroying it pretty quickly.

    At the "super early bird" price I paid on KS, and taking into account that a cartridge of film was included, I'll get my money's worth in entertainment value from it, so I'm OK with the "investment". OTOH, if I bought it at the retail prices that have been quoted - there's a website "vintagecamera.online" that's offering it at €59.00 - I would feel ripped off.

    The film holder/development hardware is not separable from the camera body as a self-contained unit - on a first glance, either you extract the frame/crank/rollers from the camera body and put into some other light-tight box, or else you can rip the bellows out of the camera and build a new front on to the cardboard box that constitutes the camera body. Not clear how durable the crank and roller parts will be.

    Exactly as expected. If it works long enough to consume the one pack of B&W I will not complain.

    Then it will be put on a shelf as object of discussion.

    Got mine just now.

    Got distracted with the straws for snorting dope.

    Kidding!

    It's way nicer than I imagined. Wish I had bought 2, one for a time capsule...

    Watched the video. Nicely packaged.

    We need an image thread to post in.

    Oren?
