Rob, just watched your update and being a regular occurrence is terrific, which is more than I can say about some other projects on Kickstarter. You have a lot going on and you have to make sure you take care of your health. Even though you feel that you can still meet your deadline, I’m sure your backers wouldn’t mind if you were just a week or two late in shipping, I don’t. I don’t know how you do it, and starting Pinbox in the middle of an existing project, you are a better man than I. Anyway, take care, your family NEEDS you.
It’s always darkest before dawn.... The good thing is that it sounds like you have kept your spirits high and sailed through the storm....
I haven’t any more cliches so, thanks for the update and all your hard work... looking forward to shooting with the new box..
Hey Graham and Jason- Rob here-
Thanks for your support and comment. They are appreciated. I'll just keep moving forward and keep on giving you guys updates. You can reach me anytime by email or over on Instagram/Facebook @ TheBoxIsBack. I'm usually up pretty late, about 2-3am my time. If I see an email or message, I'll respond.
Rob, I'm not sure why you would start another project until the NuBox 1 is successfully out the door. It seems to me that doing so only further delays the NuBox 1 (and as a result, increases the frustration level of your NuBox 1 backers). I truly hope that you can solve your production and sourcing issues so that the NuBox 1 will actually ship soon.
Finally watched the Video. I have to say I'm really curious About the NuBox 1. And also About The mentioned NuBox 35 (I have enough Instant cameras (I guess)).
Which makes me wonder. What About a NuBox 110???
Hi Manuel, Rob here-
Thanks for your question. NuBox 35 is about 1/3 smaller than NuBox 1 and uses the 35mm film format. The focal length is shorter meaning that the standard cartridge is a little wider than NuBox 1. Everything is smaller, and therefore a little more difficult to design for. However, I have been experimenting with a direct drive shutter system. That seems to be very promising. It's very different, from a traditional spring system.
I have not considered 110. That format may be too small for a "box camera" format.
