Backer Update #12: Production Notes and a "Q" for you in the video.

 Hello Squares,

It has been really busy. April marks the start of my wedding season. For those who don't know, I'm a full time wedding photographer. 

April has been all about reviewing the final designs created for the Kickstarter. This means updating and improving on the prototype units. I've left them out in the sun, rain, hot, and cold. I've been testing the shutter mechanisms with the new DLP process and looking for weaknesses to improve. I've actually had the most difficulty with the DLP print process- I'm having a hard time getting the resin settings just right for how I want to use the parts. This has been very frustrating to me. However, difficulties in one area have lead to improvements in others. 

I recently had a really interesting idea for a "bolt-action" shutter and blackslide design. I think it's pretty cool. If you would like to know more about that, please check out the video. I also ask your thoughts. SO give it a listen and let me know what you think. 

George has been hard at work creating the designs for the shipping and retail boxes. I'm really excited to give you a sneak peak sometime soon. Please be sure to follow me on Instagram @TheBoxIsBack.

Several very thoughtful backers have reached out to say hi and get to know one another. I appreciate this. Thank you for your thoughts and pick-me-ups - they've been very well received.

That ends it for this one. You guys are great. Thanks' for bringing the box back.

Cheers!

Rob
