      Hi, this is indeed frustrating, I would be happy to get the product but this constant delays make me wonder if I should just report my credit card company and cancel the deal through them.
      I already did that with another campaign (and this works - I canceled my deal) so please be honest with us and tell us when do you (really) think you can send us the camera.

      @jollylook, respect your backer, it's already over 1 year and this PAPER camera still stuck in production!? We not here to blame you, we just want to know our backer rights. IF the camera still stuck at production and unable to ship by end of this month, I would love to have a REFUND and wish you good luck. I wish you had a good day.

      Seriously guys, can you please share the reality of the situation? How can you get back into manufacturing where as you mentioned in the last update that you were ready to ship? Are we going to get this or never?

      wait, how can there be a delay in manufacturing if the last update was them telling us all they needed to do was get the packaged camera's to the shipping company?

      Just got an answer by email :
      Dear Mario,

      Many thanks for your support and your patience throughout Jollylook journey!

      Please note that unfortunately there has been a slight delay in the manufacturing and the production has just resumed yesterday. We aim to have the cameras ready by the end of the month and to have them ready for delivery in the beginning of May.

      Rest assured that we will compensate with Jollylook exceptional experience for your waiting time.

      In the meantime if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.

      Best regards,

      Lena Dukhovenko

      Project Manager

      I've just reported this project to kickstarter. To me, this looks just like a scam and I wont accept them taking my money and giving nothing back in return.
      We don't get any updates, also no reply to messages or at least comments in the comment section here. I know we are investing in an idea not buying a finished product, but I think as we gave them a shitload of money, we can at least expect that they log in here regularly to answer our questions or at least tell us what is going on.

      This project has been postponed for more than a year now.
      As a backer, I have endured and been disappointed.
      The condition makes me unpleasant and infuriating.
      Do you have a little bit of a contract spirit?!!!!!
      Don't you feel a little guilty about being so dishonest?!!!!!

      @Brent Slade
      I understand your frustration, unfortunately, after they get their cut I don't think Kickstarter gives a rats behind what happens with these projects. No matter what Kickstarter publicly proclaims, in the end their real policy is; caveat emptor, 'let the buyer (or in this case, backer) beware. Even in the case of outright fraud they (Kickstarter) stand to suffer no loss. (I do not think Jollylook is fraud, just a series of 'murphy's law' events). The stubborn refusal to Kickstarter Creators to communicate has, I'm afraid, become the normal reaction to delays. If indeed the Jollylook team is working on new Instax Square and Wide versions then why sour present backers (who are potential future backers) by radio silence?

      Only they know the answer and apparently they ain't sharing it with us.

      If I don't get an update soon, I may have to report this Kickstarter. I think we've all been really patient for the past year.

      Oh man, i just realized the last update was on April Fools, we forgot to ask April 15th of what year Jollylook was aiming for.

    22. Toms Chen on April 16

      @jollylook I think it's time for an update.

    23. Missing avatar

      John Robison on April 16

      Update #18 did not say shipping would begin on the 15th of April.
      It said they are "...aiming to send them to our shipping partners on the 15th of April."
      And that "Shipping should start in the second half of April,..." would be nice to know if they were able to send them to their shipping partners yesterday, no need for an official update, just let us know right here in the comments section.
      "...the second half of April,..." is a bit ambiguous as it could mean any time within that 15 day time period, (or, start shipping anytime between April 16th to April 30th.) And it says "start shipping", I rather doubt their shipping partners can ship out all 8000+ backer rewards in one day.
      At any rate I would imagine Oleg and the team really {REALLY! } want to get these in our hands as fast as possible. That said, in view of the 11 month delay a running commentary on any progress, even if only in the comments section, would go far to reduce tension between Team Jollylook and their backers.

      Looks like they missed the April 15 ship date. We need updates as they become available, surely you knew before today 4/16/2018 that your team would miss the 4/15/2018 deadline

      Is it not the 15th delivery?

    27. N. Newby on April 12

      The kit in the update looks a lot more refined and polished compared to the prototype that started it all. I am supper excited to get my pair (Monochrome Instant film included!) and give it try. I was hoping to be able to take with me to my Landscape class mid-term trip to Yosemite during spring break but maybe I can use it for my Summer class instead.

      I could imagine that a second KS campaign would be faster, because there is a lot of experience from the first campaign.

    29. Missing avatar

      John Robison on April 11

      For any future KS campaign set delivery date at least 12 months out from completion of campaign. You will have fewer but happier backers. I think the campaign would still be a success even with a realistic reward delivery timeline. And if perchance you deliver in shorter time than stated you will be golden.

      @eric chan @Toms Chen
      Thank you for backing Jollylook.
      Searching C are accepting pre-orders like many other dealers in the world. But we can guarantee that our backers will get the cameras first. Also the price they are selling pre-orders for is around $65 (and this is without film), which is double the price that our backers paid with film included.

      I am wondering why they log in but can't write even a small comment here. Just a comment to let us know what's up with the status. Still excited for this project!

    36. Toms Chen on April 7

      @eric chan , thanks for the info. So this mean those buy at searching c lately also will get the camera same batch as we? Then why we pledge this project and wait for a year? Since we don't have any priority for being support of this project? Jollylook team we definitely need explanation here.

      From Hong Kong appledaily newspaper, they said Searching C delivery the camera at the end of April.

      So don't expect an update until at least this weekend. When I got a message from them through facebook they said that since I reported back that they missed their shipping date again they wont be updating until this weekend. So I guess they now think that I'm their press agent. I suggest everyone send them messages on Facebook this way you can at least know when they see the message.

      I just got word from Jollylook's facebook messanger, " The Jollylook cameras will be shipped in April. And most backers should receive them before the end of April. We will post an update during the coming weekend." Not sure why they can't update us officially and looks like yet again, a shipping date has been missed.

      If they are going to ship out from China, it will take around 15-30days.. Based on my Aliexpress experience.

      If you are able to start shipping on March 25th (today). Do you have an idea how long it will take to complete shipment of rewards to your 6 thousand backers. I'm sure I'm not the only person who would like this information.

      It would be nice to get a shipping timeline as there will be holidays next week.
