Backer Bonus! Add 2 Extra Lenses for $30 + How the Lomo’Instant CNC Sample Was Made
Happy Tuesday everyone! In this project update we wanted to share a new pledge option we have added. Due to numerous requests, we have now decided to allow backers who pledged for the Lomo’Instant camera only to upgrade their pledge so they can also get the Portrait and Fisheye lenses for an additional $30. This change was made in order so everyone can enjoy the full potential of the Lomo’instant, even if you backed early and didn’t pledge for the extra lenses at first. This added bonus is especially useful for you to take advantage of now that we are making great progress towards smashing through the $1,000,000 Stretch Goal in which we have promised all camera backers an additional Close-Up Lens; so, if we hit the goal, you have the potential to shoot with 4 different lenses using the Lomo'Instant!
If you would like to upgrade your pledge and get the 2 additional Portrait and Fisheye Lenses, all you need to do is edit your pledge amount and send us a private message to confirm that this is what you would like to do. For detailed instructions on how to edit your pledge, please see our Project Update #3.
Also please don't forget it's also possible to add extra cameras to your pledge! For full instructions on this, please again also check out the Project Update #3 where we explain in detail the options and exactly how you can do this.
How the Lomo’Instant CNC Sample Was Made
Before we launched the Lomo’Instant Kickstarter project, we got the camera as a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) sample. With this sample, we were able to test out the basic functionality of the camera such as power on/off, releasing the shutter and ejecting film.
We are now working hard to develop the next camera prototypes based on this and our successful shooting camera samples. To help you get an understanding for the development process behind the Lomo’Instant, we made this short video showing how the CNC camera was made. We hope you enjoy it!
