From the beginning, we designed and refined Flekt for use with Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras, as those two manufacturers represent the majority of the marketshare. However, our goal was always to be as universal as possible, by making the design also work with as many other cameras as possible. We are really excited by the interest shown, as we’ve received dozens of questions asking if Flekt will work on specific camera models from companies other than Canon and Nikon.
We had, what we thought might be, a great idea for our camera compatibility program and because of that, we had been holding off on responding to some camera specific questions with the hopes of getting back to everyone at the same time. Unfortunately, after a couple weeks of looking into it, we determined that our idea would be too costly, plus the technology is too unwieldy and would not provide us with results that were up to our high expectations or what our backers would expect from us. Our idea involved using 3D scanning technology to create 3D models of some of the top cameras from the top manufacturers. We still hope to implement the 3D camera scanning idea in the future, but won't be able to without more money and access to better scanning technology that will be of more use to us.
In the meantime, we realized that we have access to something even better and more useful - it was right in front of us the whole time! We have a wealth of information right in front of us if we utilize crowdsourcing of information, just as we are utilizing crowdfunding to help us manufacture Flekt. Your excitement and energy can help us fuel Flekt!
What we really need from our current (and hopefully future) backers is to help us get measurements and pictures of the DSLR cameras that you care about, so we can create a database of information that will help us make Flekt as universal as possible. From the beginning, our primary goal was to set out with Canon and Nikon cameras with pop-up flashes. Our secondary goal is to make any other similarly designed cameras work with Flekt as well. Here is the information we will need from you regarding your camera(s), so we can create our database that will be at the center of our camera compatibility program.
