Reflex in 2019
Dear backers and supporters,
2018 has been a dynamic year full of significant leaps and bounds as well as some frustrating challenges and setbacks. It saw us fortunate to meet many new faces, both photographers and camera enthusiasts as well as industry professionals across the photography, design and manufacturing board. We have learned a lot about what it takes to build a first generation product and have come to realize that this can take longer than expected*.
So what can you expect from us in 2019… Evidently, our first concern is to finish the camera’s shutter unit. We have finalized it's design and are testing the first prototypes. While results look promising and we are building up (shutter)speed, a lot comes down to correct tensioning, spacing and surface treatment of the materials. We will carry on testing throughout the next couple of weeks before we conclude and publish results.
Meanwhile we continue to field test the Reflex 40mm lens (which is due to be released this spring -most likely May). We have stated to beta test the Reflex app as well as we continue to develop the other products on the Reflex roadmap.
Some of you have reached out to us with questions about our seed funding; To request the Reflex pitch deck, please contact Craig ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) adding your investors credentials or LinkedIn profile. Again, we welcome all serious investors and strategic partners. Additionally, there is a 7.5% "finders fee" attached for the person who introduces a successful party.
Lastly we would like to address a request by one of our backers;
"I fear there will be no camera at the end of the road. Since you have developed and produced Reflex lenses (seen it at Photokina) I would not mind having one of them instead to fullfill the pledge."
We are willing to offer this arrangement to any backers who prefer to settle for a Reflex 40mm lens (post launch) instead of waiting for the camera.
As always, thank you for your continued trust and support,
