Have a question?
@Brett Wilson You're welcome:)
Thank you Reflex, very much appreciated, for the update, and the now obvious continued hard work.
@Pich Ta @Brett Wilson The update released just now sheds some light here, but your comments are fair Brett. Expect more regular updates from here on.
@Michael Ian Lee Tin Wah @DaveMCat Apologies for the late reply. We also like to refer to the latest update in regards to your question.
Hi Reflex folk. Updates were thick and fast until January, deafening silence since. You seem unable to reply to a simple query let alone post an update. We get it, these things always take longer and cost more than first thought. But a little update once in a while would be nice. Even Ferrania can manage that.WTF is going on? Are you making progress, or have you done a bunk?
Have the rewards been delivered? Last year I chose just the strap, but have not received it yet. Yes, I know it's just a strap, but a reply takes little effort. Thinking this may be my first and last participation in kickstarter...
Hello team! Have the rewards been delivered? Last year I chose just the strap, but have not received it yet.
Hi Reflex team! I have sent a message on the 19th Feb but haven’t received any reply yet. Seems you missed it, can you look into it? Thanks
@Federico, about the "Analogue Pack" we have had some delay in receiving the Silberra films (a slip-up on our part as we missed the delivery and they got returned), but they are due to arrive soon. We will probably ship during the course of next week.
I wrote a private message but I received no reply :(
When do you send the "Analogue pack" rewards ??
Thanks so much
@Hwang as stated by @Mistral75 these are the 5 current mounts. If you where referring to Leica- R, this is technically possible but not (yet) planned, Leica-M however is not a possibility. Hope this helps.
@Sumet Komek We have adjusted your request. More info via PM
@JC Ruiz We would like see this happen as well, but no promises or speculations atm;)
@Laurent Yes, a pledge can not be adjusted after the campaign has closed, so indeed:)
@Kenneth E. Rosen Apologies for this confusion, for add-on I-Plates we have been taking notes via PM as we only realized later we should have added a second I-Plate option for those of you who ordered extra. However your preference (OM and M42) is noted!
@Sunny Tay Hi, yes this was done from our side on the 11th, please check PM for further info.
Since @Reflex doesn't seem to hang around very much:
@Kenneth E. Rosen: All I-Backs are identical, only I-Mounts are mount-specific.
@Hwang: Available mounts are specified in the 'Campaign" section: M42 thread mount, Nikon F, Olympus OM, Canon FD (not the current EOS/EF mount) and Pentax K.
I am a buyer from Hong Kong. I would like to inquire about the total number of camera lens mount. Nikon? Canon?Leica-M? Pentax? Or other. Can you give me a more detailed answer?
I’ve already sent 2 message to you via message box in KS for weeks about changing shipping country. Please check it out ,thanks.
@Creator: no chances of getting a black one even when your indiegogo is successful?
@Reflex - If the black version will not be part of the initial production run, will backers who prefer the black version be given the option of waiting to see if "time and economics" will work in our favor? As much as I'm looking forward to receiving my Reflex, I would be willing to wait a bit longer to get the black version.
Similarly to the question just below, it is apparently not possible to switch rewards. Good excuse to stay on my current pledge level, then :-)
I just completed the survey, but did not see any way to provide information about the extra lens mount I paid for. I paid a total of £449, which included £350 for the Reflex camera with an I-Back and M42 I-Mount and £99 for the "Reflex Breakout Pack" which is supposed to include an extra I-Mount and an extra I-Back. I want one M42 I-Mount and one Olympus OM I-Mount (and two I-Backs). I selected the Olympus mount box in the survey, but there was no way to indicate my choice for the two I-Backs. (one M42 plus one OM). Please advise. Thank you.
Hi @Creator has the refund been processed?
@Sachiro Oyama Very sorry for this, December 7th was the last day of the KS campaign and we had a lot of messages and last minute questions come in. Yours must have been read but not responded. Normally we would "Mark as Unread" but this must have been overlooked. To answer your question, yes this is correct and we have made note of your specifications. Shipping (combined in your case) is included. Hope this helps!
@JC Ruiz @Michael Ian Lee Tin Wah - Same as with the Minolta mount the black version of Reflex has always been a stretch goal as communicated and clarified in numerous posts and updates. As the campaign didn't reach it's 150% goal we can't add it to the initial production run. Again, because of this it is a question of time and economics before we can produce it.
@Julian L @Jos Is there not an option to respond to the Survey with a comment? We do receive messages from backers in regards to the backers survey. Maybe it's not straight forward to respond? In any case, we have noted the specifications for your add-ons so no worries!
@Edward Agnoli The SR/MD mount has always been a stretch goal as communicated and clarified in numerous posts. As the campaign didn't reach it's 150% goal we can't add it to the initial production run. The prototype exists, so it's a question of time and economics before we can produce it.
I sent an individual message as below on December 7, last year, but I have not received a reply yet. Reflex earlybird + Reflex Breakout Pack + 474 £ for shipping, i-mount attached to the body to PKmount, add Nikon F-mount for the addition, but as there is no item on the question, I hesitate to reply .
Here I will post a message I sent you again.
I backed up Early Bird.
I wanted to add a Reflex Breakout Pack there, so I added 99 pounds and invested 474 pounds including shipping fee.
Is my method correct?
Got the same problem here... no black option even though advertised in the updates! :-/
@Reflex team: will the reflex come in black? There's no option as to what color to choose.
@Reflex team: best wishes for 2018! Looking forward to get my hands on the Reflex camera.
Also, I pledged for a body with M42 plate and an additional £99 for an extra i-back and additional i-plate F-mount for Nikon!!
In the survey I also could not find a box for additional survey info.
Hi, I have pledged extra for a 2nd back and plate too. How do I let you know this? My order is the camera with an OM mount, and an extra back with the M42 mount. Thanks! :)
Found a way to change now : )
Hello Reflex Team, after i clicked submit on the survey, I saw that the box that I selected changed from Nikon F to the one below, so now I'm not sure whether my order has been submitted correctly. Is there a way to confirm?
Here is my order - One Reflex body with Nikon F mount, and I've pledged additional £99 for I-Back and I-Plate (m42).
Hi, I just got my survey and I see I don't have an option for a SR mount (Minolta). One of the updates said it would be available. Is that a mistake on the survey?
@Martin yes, just now �
Did anyone receive the backer survey yet?
@Sunny Tay - Hi Sunny Tay, apologies for the wait, however we have not gone missing or anything of that sorts. While it is sad to hear that your card was mis-managed, in essence there is nothing we can do until we actually have the funds, in order to be able to re-fund. The way it works is that it takes 14 days for Kickstarter to transfer the funds -7 days is to give pledges that have bounced the chance to updated their payment details and another 5 working days to transfer the remaining funds. Confirmation of transfer was sent to us on the 21st (yesterday). We are sending out the Backers Surveys over the weekend and deal with your request. Hope this explains the situation.
@Mistral75 I already did 14 days ago and no reply. That is why I have to use the comment section. And Kickstarter isn’t helping at all. Frankly I give up hope on this platform. I will have to dispute this transaction .. I do not have any more choic given that the creator go missing in action after collecting the funds.
You can contact them directly by using the following link:
How creator please kindly respond and resolve my issue. Going missing and ignoring my message is not the best way to solve the problem.
Hi Creator, I have msg you on 6 Dec when the credit card has been charged that the pledge is not authorised by me. I have notified Kickstarter of this bleach. They advise me to contact you for refund as you have the power to do so. But I have not heard from you in this past week. Can you please kindly refund the charge made.
First, congratulations! I'm very excited for next steps, and wonder if there is any hope for the stretch goal app even though the campaign didn't clear 150K.
*Leica-mounts! Leica-mounts! Leica-mounts!*
HIP - HIP - HOORAY !!!!! Congratulations REFLEX TEAM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Keep Up The Good Spirit!
I' m looking forward to the outcome of this beautiful realization!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congratulations on your project being successfully funded.
Take your time and get everything right. Looking forward to using the camera.
Thank you again and again!
Since M42 mount can be used by attaching an adapter to PK mount, I wanted to change to PK mount.
@Sachiro Oyama, the mount is on the i-plate which you can change at any time, currently they have i-plates for M42 mount, Nikon F, Olympus OM. Canon FD and Pentax PK.
Although the rewards say it comes with M42 i-plate as standard, I believe you will be to specify which mount you want e.g. OM instead of M42.
