Yashica’s Y35 digiFilm camera drummed up a great deal of excitement on Kickstarter but was universally panned by reviewers and early adopters when it finally launched in 2018. Apparently unfazed, Yashica just returned to Kickstarter with plans to launch three new film cameras and two new films.

The project is called “Absolute,” and it’ll be rolled out in three “episodes” for the three cameras.

Gnarbox 2.0 – Backup Your Footage, No Computer Needed

Apr 242019

Hot off the heels of a successful Kickstarter campaign last year, the backup storage device dubbed the Gnarbox 2.0 is ready and shipping soon. For photographers and shooters in the field, the Gnarbox promises to be a safe and reliable alternative to putting a pile of media in your pocket to offload later at night at the hotel.

The Gnarbox 2.0 will come in three flavors based primarily around their internal storage capacity. 256, 512, 1TB versions will all be available – and each one features an SD card slot for offloading cards, as well as a USB C port and a removable battery. Obviously, for users not shooting with SD cards, you’ll need to attach the applicable reader to the device to offload footage. We checked out the device at NAB 2019 and there is a lot to like here. For users shooting raw images or HD footage then 1TB is plenty for a full day of shooting. Once you get into high resolution footage from RED and other 4K+  resolution raw-capable cameras, then this may not be the right device for you.

I have been a happy user of the Promote Control for some time. This new system for utilizing the iPhone as a remote device for Canon or Nikon DSLRs is looking quite good and allows for up to 9 bracketed exposures for HDR photography!

I just became a backer and ordered mine!
