Update on the Reflex manual film SLR camera

Do you remember the Reflex manual film SLR camera that raised over $180k on Kickstarter back in 2017? Reportedly the project is not going very well and the team behind it is holding a virtual public meeting on the future of the Reflex manual film SLR camera on Wednesday, August 18th, at 6.30 pm GMT.

Additional information:

"The Reflex camera project received enormous interest on its launch in 2017. Founder Laurence Von Thomas’ vision was for a modular 35mm camera which had removable lens backs and lens mounts, allowing photographers to switch films and lens mounts on the go.

The camera was originally scheduled to be launched at the Photo Plus event in New York in October 2017, but suffered a string of delays. The first major hurdle was the discovery in early 2019 that the team would have to build the camera’s shutter unit from scratch because an existing unit was not available.

Later that year, the project was dealt another blow when one of the engineering teams working on the camera walked out." (via Kosmofoto)
