What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

 [Experiment 1] upload at 20/09/2018

As some of you may have questions on how the sensor works with your film camera, so we decided to share the experiment we made earlier.

We were using raspberry pi system and a ¼” CCD (sensor) to adapt to the film camera and trying to test the camera functionality when the shutter fully opens.The result shown that the sensor works smoothly with the camera as we expected. The adaptation didn't harm the construction of the camera, the lens and all of the functions working well.

Enjoy the video & Stay tuned with us!

Risks and challenges

The idea of Film35 have been born in 2015 and we have kept developing on the mechanical , try and error on the mock up over these years and finally we can have done the prototype before we announce this idea.

Funding Clearing the startup financing hurdle has never been easy for the design industry. The idea of Film35 has arrived, we need the capital in launching the product. Find, and invest in tomorrow's 'designer founder' through this platform for our ideas to flourish.

Let’s make the new Era of Analogue Photography happen.
