Hi Kickstarter Backers!
We have an new blog post up!
This is a BIG one!
It's the story from NAB till now.
Here is a little taste...
Last week I missed a call from our business partner Joe Bornbaum. The voicemail he left was one of the most exciting things I’ve ever heard.
“We got an image with the new firmware, it’s not perfect, but the F*ing thing works!”
I flew to Toronto that night on 3 hours of sleep. On Thursday I was exhausted. I came into the office dragging my backpack full of equipment. I desperately wanted to see a clean image coming off the sensor, but I knew that this was very unlikely.

We are moving steadily towards our goal and hopefully will have an update about delivery very soon.
I wanted to take a moment though and talk about camera companies. You may have heard that Aaton is going to be filing for bankruptcy and looking for a buyer or investor.
I wrote a blog post about it, most of the post I didn't actually write, it's an email sent on the Cinematographer's Mailing List. The content of this email I believe is hugely important.
Here is the post:
Thank you everyone for your support, Joe
Hello Kickstarter Backers!
Most of you heard about us during our SXSW launch last year, and we were back this year! We had a great time at SXSW 2013 met a lot of great people and everyone got to hold the final camera body and feel the weight. We made a little video of our experience. At the bottom of this post. And this is a blog post by Elle about it too...
We have some more great news too, there will be working cameras this year at NAB! So if you're going to be there please stop by and visit, we'll be at the Pomfort booth in the European section Booth #C8441!
This also means we are nearing completion of the project and delivery of your cameras! I don't have a specific date right now, but as soon as we do I will update everyone here.
Thanks so much for your support, Joe, Elle, and the entire Digital Bolex Team
