rotation180º pro updates...

Comment

Dear Supporters,

Many of you have contacted us with your feedback and your pictures over the past few weeks. It has been incredibly rewarding to see you all enjoying your new MindShift Gear. Thank you all for sharing. We look forward to seeing more of your photographs as spring moves forward.

To aid you in maximizing your enjoyment of the rotation180º pro, we’ve released five instructional videos to help explain its primary features. These videos can be found at:

The next big event here is the launch of our new website later this month. If you've signed up for announcements at www.MindShiftGear.com we'll let you know as soon as the new site goes live!

As always, if you have any questions, comments or feedback we're all ears at customerservice@mindshiftgear.com and on Facebook and Twitter.

Best regards,

The Team

Update #9

Shipping updates

Dear Backers,

As you may have seen at your doorstep or on our Facebook page, some rewards have already arrived in Asia, Australia and New Zealand. If you're in North America or Europe, your rewards are on their way. We expect our North American shipment to arrive on April 20th and the European shipment to land around April 23rd. When the bags arrive they must be inventoried and labeled before they can make it to your doorstep. While we can't provide an exact date of arrival for each of your rewards, we will continue to keep you updated throughout our progress.

Meanwhile, spring has brought us some rare lightening storms, heavy downpours, gusty winds and now gorgeous blue skies and 80 degree temperatures here in California. What has spring brought your way? Is there sun and wildflowers outside your window or a street covered in fresh snow? Jump over to our Facebook page and show us what it looks like in your neck of the woods!

Best,

Doug Bush

PS! If you'd like to see an in depth look at what you have to look forward to, take a look at photographer Dan Carr's review. :-)

Update #8

We're shipping!

Dear Backers,

We are happy to report that our first production run has just been completed! This means we can begin shipping rewards shortly. Items will ship first to our international distributors and then straight to you. Because we have received support from all over the globe, delivery times will vary. The earliest deliveries could begin as early as next week while others may not arrive until late April or early May. A tracking number will be emailed to you as soon as your reward gets shipped. We know it's been a long wait but it will be worth it!

Join us on Facebook and let us know when your reward has arrived! We'd love to see your bag unboxed and in your hands for the first time. It is our reward to see our bag out in the wild in the hands of photographers like you. Please send us your pictures and share the love. The rotation180º pro was designed to explore so we can't wait to see where you will take it!

Kind regards,

Doug Bush


Update #7

Progress!

Dear Backers,

We want to send out a big thank you to everyone who stopped by the MindShift booth at the North American Nature Photography Association summit in Florida. It was great to share the technology with fellow photographers and provide the opportunity for some of our backers to experience the bag first-hand. We had a great time at the show and we look forward to seeing even more of you there next year!

As promised, Doug Murdoch has provided some pictures straight from the assembly process for your viewing pleasure... We promise to continue providing updates through Kickstarter but if you haven't already, please join the conversation on Facebook as well.

Cheers,

Doug Bush

Update #6

Good news!

Comment

Dear Backers,

We are happy to report that everything is right on schedule with the production of the Rotation180º backpacks and accessories. Earlier this month head designer Doug Murdoch was in Vietnam to oversee the making of pre-production samples. They look great and are currently being evaluated. Doug will soon be traveling back to the factory to be on location as manufacturing begins. He will be taking photos to share during his visit, so stay tuned. We will keep you updated as progress continues. Hang in there!

While Doug is in Asia, the rest of MindShift Gear will be attending the North American Nature Photography Association's summit in Jacksonville, Florida, on March 1st and 2nd. Photographers Daniel Beltra, Jerry Dodrill and I will be present in the tradeshow area to talk with you and let you try out one of our samples. We encourage you to come on by our booth and say hello! There will be some great speakers and events at the show so if you'd like more information simply visit http://www.naturephotographysummit.com/.

Cheers,

Doug Bush
