      Hi Lomography! I've received the new add-on link and is interested in the GND and the star filter. Has anyone gone out to take some samples that you would be able to share? thanks! :D

      @Krummholz thanks for the info, good to hear!

      @ Lorenzo I hope so as well. They said in the latest update that the first cameras will arrive in their hubs in December. If the first batch includes Kickstarter edition, and arrive in the very early December, probably we'll be able to get it before Christmas. I don't know if we can be that lucky though, as it is the busiest time of the year. It all depends on how early they will receive the first batch.

      Will the Kickstarter edition be shipped in time for Christmas? �

      @Lomography Great to hear, thanks for the heads up!

      @ Lomo Thanks for the update :).
      Also I just received an email regarding the add ons ;)

    10. Lomography 8-time creator on November 29

      @NR We will be posting an update about shipments in the coming days! We ship all EU packages from instead the EU so there should be no customs delays.

    11. Lomography 8-time creator on November 29

      The links will sent out very shortly and they will allow you to purchase any add ons that you still need! :)

      We'd love to here a small update from you guys on the production (and maybe the shipment?). From where are you handling the shipment? Are there a customs delay to be expected for backers in the EU?

      Also wondering about the personalized link to the sale--I haven't received it either and would like to purchase additional items.

      @Paolo
      Fujifilm just announced the instax share SP-3 printer that uses instax square film. They are not going to abandon the film any time soon.

      I was going to order a 9 pack film and kaleidoscope today. What happened to the pricing?

      Why did you increase the add on price of the films suddenly? It was 25usd for 3 two days ago.

    18. Farouq on November 22

      Would also like to get some clarification on the square film situation. Thanks.

      Hi! I originally backed the 24h deal black combo. I was wondering if it would be possible for me to switch to Ginza? Thanks!

      I suspect the Polaroid mess will be cleared up in due time. I'm happy I chose to add the mini back though just in case.

    25. Giuseppe Zappalà on November 17

      Hi, what about the fight Polaroid vs Fujifilm? This is a big problem for us: it will be impossible use the new instant square camera by Lomograhy. What about a refund?

    26. Pureillusionist on November 17

      Hi. With the recent news of Polaroid’s lawsuit against fujifilm over the instax square film, what’s going to happen to this project and for us backers? Will it be canned if fujifilm stops selling instax square film? Or will the camera change to fit Polaroid I-type film? Will the backers be given a choice for a refund?

    27. Lomography 8-time creator on November 9

      Please do not worry when your add ons are not included in the email sent by Kickstarter. If you recieved a confirmation message from us during the campaign saying that your add ons had been recorded or notified us of any add ons you had purchased in the survey then they will be included with your camera package!

      @Filipe Your Mini back will be sent along with your new camera! :)

      Hi, I just received an email to confirm my address (which was correct) but on the package listing I don't see any mention regarding the Instant Mini Back I also pledged. Can you please confirm that this is included in the package I'll receive? Thanks and Regards

      Hi Lomography,
      I wonder if there's any chance to add more add-ons for backers in the future. I still have a few items I'd like to add!

      Hi @lomography, I noticed other people were updating you about their extras, so here's mine – I've included the Instant Mini Back. Thanks!

      Looking forward to the camera!

      Just FYI, your preorder link:

      shop.lomography.com/de/cameras/lomo-instant-square-camera/

      Takes me to a page in German (I think) even though it has "country=us" in the URL

      @My Cung the camera works only with instax square or instax mini if you install the mini back. Polaroid 600 works in a totally different way:
      Instax film is exposed on the back and the neagtive "migrates" to the front, becoming a positive image. This way you don't need the mirror inside the camera.
      Polaroid 600 is exposed directly on the front, hence you need bigger cameras with a mirror inside to get a correct image, and it's bigger than instax square.

      Hey @Lomography team,

      just wanted to ask if the camera will also be compatible with the Polaroid Original Films /Impossible Project Films (e.g. 600) .

      With best regards

      So Polaroid Originals is launching (shipping) in less than a week, and pre-release reviews have been mildly negative, due to the cost of the film, lacklustre processing and disappointingly soft images.

      Just thought of sharing that I'm just glad I have supporting this campaign by Lomography. The quality seems to be much higher, despite the smaller format. Can't wait for these to ship!

    43. Lomography 8-time creator on October 10

      @임인화 The refund was made but it can take a few days to process! :)

    44. 임인화 on October 9

      I had wanted to refund my money back. And u said yes. But after few days. There is no answer. Whats wrong with it!!

      Plz refund my money back

      @Seth There is no need for you to check off any items in the survey unless you have already raised your pledge to include them. It will be possible to purchase all add ons for the campaign prices in our special deal for backers. In the coming weeks you will receive a personalized payment link to add all the items you still need!

    46. Lomography 8-time creator on October 9

      @David Unfortunately, there was a mistake when we were making some of the surveys that means the Mini Film does not appear in the options. Yes, it would be great if you could let us know about it in the "Anything else you want to let us know section".

    47. Lomography 8-time creator on October 9

      @Tom Yip You only have to check items if you raised your pledge during the campaign but did not tell us what add ons you wanted! There is a sample picture taken with the star filter in this update: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lomography/the-lomoinstant-square-camera/posts/1998449

      Hey,

      I filled out my survey yesterday and selected an add-on, I was wondering when I will be charged for the add-on so that I can make sure that I will receive it with my camera during the delivery phase.

      Thanks

      I can't seem to find the "Instax Mini Film - Pack of 3" ($25) option among the add-on choices within your backer survey.
      Should we just mention that purchase in the "Anything else you want to let us know" section?

    50. Tom Yip on October 6

      @Lomo Do I have to check the add on item that I've already included in my pledge? I added the Instant Back before the end of the campaign. When I did the survey today, I checked the box for Instant Back, was that incorrect?
      Also, is there any sample picture of the star filter?
      Thanks :).
