I just wanted to thank all of the backers and supporters who made Duo's Kickstarter campaign a success, with $19,711 in funding!

Now the real work begins - we are officially out of the prototyping stage, with the third and final prototype completed. The next big undertaking will be in acquiring all of the parts needed for the kits and preparing them for delivery. A lot of work will also be put into user documentation, so that building and using Duo will be a walk in the park.

I look forward to providing updates on the progress of the project, both here on Kickstarter and on the  Duo Companion Blog. Surveys for shipping information will be sent in the weeks prior to the shipping of each reward. 

Again, I would like to thank everyone who helped make this project possible. My deepest gratitude goes out to the following extraordinary persons:

Mom and Dad Kadooka - for their love and support; Kristina Nagai - for continually inspiring me to pursue this passion; Rich Gunderson and Steve Hopf - for their sharing their unparalleled expertise in their fields; and Satoru Murata - for his fantastic generosity in supporting this project.

      All of the above lenses are Mamiya 105mm's. In fact, they represent three of the four variants of the 105 (black 4-element at left, black "D" 5-element at center, chrome 4-element at right). These lenses were purchased before the Kickstarter campaign was launched. Since then, people have been scooping them up on sight.

      Hi Kevin,
      Since the lenses are very hard to get, what lenses are you using in the picture above?
