@creator I also sent you a private message yesterday. Please respond at your earliest convenience. And congrats!
I sent you a private message. Please kindly check. Thank you.
oh it was in my fancy lol :3
Now guess we should wait and keep encouraging the team since the pledge was done yesterday. I hesitated a lot too but the Unexpected 2017(in my fantasy) digifilm helped my decision in the end. I hope I made the right decision! :)

일단 메세지로 보냈습니다.
@creator i pledge The 2nd day... But my backer number is 7088? I do not understand how that can be : -/
@JASMON CHING You will receive a survey around 7-10 days later. Then you can choose extra digiFIlm from the survey.
Thank you again for your support!

We are ready to move on to the next stage. You will receive a survey in email within 7-10 days. Please make sure you fill in all information correctly so to help us facilitate the delivery process. And you can also choose any available add-ons at discounted price. Catch this opportunity!
Again, a BIG BIG BIG thank you for every one of you. We can't come this far without you!!
From YASHICA :)
Can. Not. Wait. Super excited about this! I don’t know if I’ve ever been so excited about any other Kickstarter campaign.
Way to go! I want mine :) greetings from Mexico City!
Can't wait to get hands on the camera
Yesssss!!! Big up and good luck!
Can’t wait till April
매우 기대됩니다. 다른 digifilm 이 더 나오기를 희망합니다.
may i know how to get the extra digifilm e.g. blue and 2017 unexpected
Hmm I seems to miss the Yashica Unexpected 2017 film. How do I add it to my pledge?
Thanks a lot! Can’t wait until April, keep fighting :)
Doh! I wanted to cancel but forgot.
@Yashica So the campaign has ended. Will you be releasing the full-res photos now? Or we will only get to see the full-res image when we got the camera (if it will be delivered)?
Can't wait until hands on
Thanks to all the backers !!
Now, we can not turn back! lol
@ Creator, do your best! Please make a wonderful camera!
We share some technical concerns.
Let's all work together to solve all problems!
No Pain, No Gain !!!!
No risk no life! see you in April :)
Already add +155hkd , for Unexpected 2017 (in my fancy)” digiFilm
How to add Unexpected 2017 (in my fancy)” digiFilm ? How many hkd is cost ??
A single figure to illustrate one of my points below: the area of a 1/2.5 sensor is 35 times smaller than the area of the films used by the original Yashica Electro 35.
Hence my using the word "tiny".
Indeed. I consider Yashica have been misguided by the requests made by some backers.
1/3.2 inch or 1/2.5 inch, this is still a tiny sensor, smaller than those of compact cameras (between 1/2.3 inch and 1 inch or even bigger). The difference between f/2.8 and f/2 is only one stop and has no impact on image quality.
On the other hand, with of a fixed-focus and fixed-aperture lens the combination of a bigger sensor and a brighter lens has a disastrous impact on the minimum distance at which the objects will be acceptably sharp (what Yashica call the "minimum focusing distance").
It's better to have a 2.8 aperture, but the focusing distance is about 1 meter!
If it were a hand phone camera module, it would autofocus. I think it's simply a 1/2.5" sensor, which is used in hand phones but also in surveillance cameras for instance, plus a fixed-focus 4-element lens, probably based on a Tessar formula (Carl Zeiss, 1902). For instance the famous Nokia N8 (2010) was equipped with an equivalent 28mm f/2.8 Tessar lens.
Thank you for the explanation. :-)
So actually, it’s a hand phone camera module inside a huge box right? Which might be even less because there’s no auto focus.
You wrote "You've updated the aperture from F2.8 ~ F2, the sensor size also got bigger, but the size of the camera didn't change at all?"
No problem with that, Y35 has plenty of empty space inside. For instance the actual focal length of the lens is around 5mm and both the length and diameter of the lens are much less than 1cm each.
What you see on the camera is not the lens itself but an outer shell designed for aesthetic purposes. The actual lens is much smaller and deeply recessed within this shell.

同一个问题，如果要用3D Printer 重新打印Y35的初型，之后打磨和再喷为黑色的颜色机身，这样最少要用3天的时间；换转在生产工序上直接调教颜色，更为快捷；而且还节省了工作，増取改良Y35的时间。
Although I welcome & thank @creator for all upgrades, I am very disappointed with the minimum focus distance of 1.5m which I consider a major downgrade. I didn't expect this unexpected limitation.
I was wondering about that. If minimum focal distance for prototype was closer to 4 feet, how did they take sharp focused photos of the clocks at around 2 feet from the videos? It makes no sense.
You've updated the aperture from F2.8 ~ F2, the sensor size also got bigger, but the size of the camera didn't change at all?
@Aaron T Eames The campaign is just ending with the funding stage. The development will go ahead. you contribution and comments is still welcome.
Thank you again for your valuable support and you encourage our team a lot.
The minimum focus distance is 1.5m, 5feet, is really disappointing
I am cancelling my pledge also. Up until this point, there has not been enough data for me to believe this product will turn out great, even though I really wanted to believe in it. The way the creator has been running this campaign has been another huge disappointment.
Well Done Yashica! It is really exciting to be a part of the re-emergence of this camera brand. Can't wait until the Y35 is delivered. Thanks for listening to me and taking my opinions on board. So happy a filter thread is included now. Come on April 2018.
Will wait for the actual product release :) Lurked for the campaign journey but like many have said... sounds too skeptical for the photos to look good with the tiny sensor size and errors in calculations. Good luck!
@Aaron T Eames Thank you for your comment. Actually our team nearly confirm the small window will be appear at the back cover of Y35. Just waiting for the final 3D drawing for approval.

推出了一套Yashica Lens “ 2 in 1 Smartphone Series “。在市场上，这类型的产品不计其数；而且产品期并不长久。
但疑问来了，大约两个月之后，Yashica Y35 和 digiFILM™ 在KS上集资。
[ digiFAQ 007 ]
Yashica Y35 和 digiFILM™ 这个项目，真的需要在KS集资吗？而且双方也有风险？
@Jing-cheng Lin We have an LED indicator for indicating shutter press, SD card full, No CD card insert or any abnormal status of Y35.
@creator @yashica a window on the back for the digifilm would be great!!
