Did the fish make it or was it eaten?

Pretty shot well crafted. It almost looks like an alien landscape.

One of the best of the 15. Tells a story and conveys emotion.

beckmarc: I just hope they don’t let all of these backers down with an inferior or even no product. Cynicism aside, it shows a potential way forward for camera manufacturers to compete against smart phones at least stylistically.

@tr573. I totally agree with you. You neatly sum up kick starter etc. you forgot the companies who use it for marketing and presales. I just hope for the people who “invested” this does not turn out to be a complete dud or even worse a scam.
I learnt to shoot on my mum’s Yashica fixed lens rangefinder. A great camera for the era with a sharp lens. It was a 21st present from her father. I hope they don’t sully the Yashica name.
I think Fuji have struck a good balance of the new and old in a very functional well thought out package in the form of the x series.
However, this kick starter was clearly a non starter for you and I, but there is abviously a market for this retro filmesque type of camera. Perhaps Nikon etc. could do something like a digital SP or a better digital F (ie a DF2). Lord knows they have to do something to compete against mobile phone cameras.

No way. Polaroid has arisen Phoenix like from the flames.

paul613: Who knew that Kodak still had 425 employees?

1999 was the biggest selling year for film of all time

Please note the re-introduction of ektachrome is by Kodak Alaris, not this company

I believe this in not the company which makes film. I understand that Kodak Alaris makes film and was sold off a couple of years ago to the pension fund in the uk for retired Kodak employees. The remaining offical Kodak was a print company. However this market has had problems as Konica and Ricoh have found out.

creepy.sol: Polaroid should release a mobile printer that allows you to print from your camera or phone onto polaroid film.

Just like the Fuji instax printer

One of the reasons I like photography is that it is a hobbie and industry which has always had female participation. Countries in Asian are culturally different to Western countries. I suspect this is why this all male promotion was not picked up marketing for its lack of female photographers. In the age of the internet local marketing by global companies is seen all around the world not just in the intended market. It may have archived something though in that we are disscussing Nikon. All publicity is good publicity.

sibuzaru: OTOH Polaroid would be making a proper comeback later this week

Yes on the 13th of September is the big reveal. Hints seem to suggest a new film. I hope it is genuinely new and not just reboxed current impossible project film. Of note the impossible project store is also down until the 13th.

melgross: What the hell is wrong with guys like this? Are they so removed from the real world that they don’t see this, at least, as being dangerous to their reputation and careers?

That’s beyond the fact that this shouldn’t be done simply because it’s just demeaning, and wrong.

@melgross. If the allegations are true then your comments are well founded. The issue is getting to the truth. People make all sorts of claims and assertions which may or may not be true. In a democratic society there have to be fair process for all involved. There may be some very traumatised victims in this case either s women how has been sexually harassed or a man who has endured false allegations.

Home cloud services are attractive to people outside of the USA as many cloud companies store data on US servers. Thus your data becomes subject to US law. In industries such as health one has to find other solutions as patient information may become subject to US law. Not such a big deal for photographs true but for more serious data this is a risk.

Old Cameras: Waiting for someone to introduce a new film camera. People are living off the millions of used cameras in need of a home. It would just be an interesting sign to see a new camera introduced.

Various instax instant cameras by Fuji and the impossible I-1 instant film camera
