    The plate idea is a copy of Tamron Adaptall System. Tamron made a lot of lenses with the appropriate adapter for each camera manufacturer mount. I have a few of them. Would i be interested in the Reflex? Nope. I am still in possession of all my film bodies. My FM2 is simple, no batteries. If i need a meter not a problem. I kept that too.

    Yo Jvpes are you still hype for this Camera?

  3. Daniel Fjäll on March 9, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    I put my chips on what Bellamy Hunt has to pull out of his sleeve

  4. Akhyar Rayhka on March 9, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    Is it relevant to make EVF on a film camera?

  5. KingJvpes on March 9, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Point & Shoot deez….

  6. georgfritz on March 9, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    Not sure, don’t we have already Canon EOS A2E with Autofocus and film advance and all kinds of settings? What good is it

  7. Marcy Cami on March 9, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    I think that you left out, and didn’t stress enough, one point ; which I’ think is crucial for this camera: interchangeable film backs!  The freedom to change in the middle of the roll, from bw, to color to slide to bw3200 to ortho 25 ,etc.  Freedom of creation , and also budget conscious,  since I don’t have to waste roll just to change set ups .   Also I’m thinking in a  instax/polaroid back, actually many of them for different sizes,   even someone could come with a 120back.   I’m thinking in a panoramic back  ,   and also thinking in a didital :D, yes digital back, like the i’mback back for 35’s, which that will close the circle.  but the good thing is that is happening, and that is a good thing  ;)ooo oo, by the way , the Minolta plate is coming , is one thing that  a lot of people ask,   personally I want the mamiya z :/

  8. Greg on March 9, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    This is a hipster camera, plain and simple.
    If you want to shoot film, go get a real film camera.

  9. Arnaud DUVAL on March 9, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    Using Pentax, M42, Canon or Nikon mounts… Cool stuff !

  10. denny11lane on March 9, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Other than that marketing video you linked to, anybody hear any Real News from these guys.? Anybody ever see a Real Prototype yet.? Seems all quiet on the western front…….

  11. LSM on March 9, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    you say "go ahead" a lot !

  12. Otokichi786 on March 9, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    For those who complain that the camera is "butt ugly." It’s a TOOL! It is not a FASHION statement. (If jewelry is what you’re after, LOMO and other "Hipster" makers market "pretty" cameras.) Besides, a "butt ugly" camera won’t attract thieves and other folk who will gladly bust your skull or carve out your liver for your "photographic jewelry."

    Clink the Link bois

  14. supa kid on March 9, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    how can we purchase this camera. Also im a new subscriber. Love you videos bro

  15. neil piper on March 9, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    tamron adaptall were doing this back in the day.
    When I typed in Tamron adaptall it came up with Tampon adaptall.

  16. cal _win on March 9, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Please try it out

  17. Bill Sprague on March 9, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    I’m backing it, because I never gave up film. I get what you’re saying but I already have my Olympus OM-1, OM-2, and OM-4 along with my Canon Elan and antique Exakta along with all that glass and a couple of working Weston meters. This lets me enjoy that old glass and decide what I want to carry. For someone like me, it’s a win-win. I’m just hoping Kodak really does bring back Kodakchrome in quantity along with their processing. I loved being able to send of the film while I was on a long trip and having the slides waiting when I got home. Yes, I still have a slide projector…. I’m 74 and I’m not about to change now.

  18. Najja Foluke on March 9, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    I guess I’m too analog minded, and add purist to that description, I’ll stick with the old analog cameras. I’m not too much on all this progress. Progress seems to be destroying the fun of shooting. Just my take on it.

  19. EDHblvd on March 9, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Fuji ain’t recreating shit. They are only focused on Instax. They have publicly stated film will be dead in 10 years and they are killing off their stocks because they believe it. Kodak is the only big name from back in the day breathing life into film. I’m still waiting for Ektachrome.

  20. P.J De Jesus on March 9, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    I love the idea especially with the interchangeable backs. However, the $500-600 price tag is sort of pricey. I think this thing will take off because older cameras will eventually break and that parts for them are becoming more scarce.

  21. ToddB987 on March 9, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    This camera looks cool. I’m a avid film camera user. My two cameras I have is a Leica M3 and Rolleiflex. I don’t know what to think about this.. I think the audience that might enjoy this are the younger folks that want a nice film camera like with new tech inputs that it has,  and the lens carriage. There a ton a great manual focuses lenses at second hands stores just wasting away.

  22. cooloox on March 9, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    We each have our own tastes and preferences, obviously. For me, you couldn’t pay me to go back to that nonsense. I shot film for years, including professionally. Digital is the best thing that ever happened to cameras. Messing around with film, ridiculously limited shooting per roll and the exhorbitant cost of film and processing is just a joke. This camera is just a gimmick. Let’s be honest here, anyone using this camera will want the images to be digitised anyway to be able to use them, which is precisely why digital cameras rule supreme, not to mention the speed and featureset of digital cameras.

  23. Joey Balli on March 9, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Hey I live in the Bay Area do you have any thrift store that I should hit up? Also where should I buy expired film?

  24. Daniel Stewart on March 9, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Wow. This what I have been hoping for for a decade. This is as versatile as my medium format system cameras. Honestly for new kit for awhile we only had toys (lomo) and F6s and Leica. Neither of which are as flexible. Also as much as I love my classic cameras many are at the end of their shelf life. Shutters in Canon A series bodies are dying in droves for example and you have zero customer support. This camera will also be a godsend to all the camera repair shops that are dying out.

  25. Marc Riches on March 9, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Stopped down metering, have to press a "reverse DOF button" to focus/brighten the viewfinder……im out.

  26. PauL TerL on March 9, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    To me is good news.

  27. Ruwindu Gunatilake on March 9, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Well there’s the Nikon F5 and the F6 which takes the digital and analog world to the next level but the heft and the features will definitely scare the digital photog tryna enter the film world. Those machines are built for professionals by professionals. This camera gives the analog-digital mix a twist by making it very simple and familiar to an amateur photog level. I also think this will be a perfect entrance for someone just starting out.

  28. D C on March 9, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    This is great if it keeps people buying film – I’ve shot film since I was a kid I’m 40 now and a professional . However at 500 dollars you can buy yourself a nice Nikon F100 with a nice 50mm 1.4 . The list of cameras you could buy is endless . Sadly it has no real future past its first flourish of sales . Why because there are literally millions of perfect condition film cameras out there . Rollei made TLR cameras until a few years ago but they had to compete with there own second hand products lasts so long . They couldn’t compete with there own second hand market . Same thing has happened even more so with digital Nikon canon and Sony have saturated the market . It’s a nice idea but as some one said in the comments a hipster camera . 500 dollars buys you a lot of film

  29. Seele2015au on March 9, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    The very idea of having interchangeable lens mounts on the camera means there would not be any kind of coupling between camera and lens; in other words, no full-aperture metering, no shutter-speed priority or programmed exposure automation, in fact, whatever lens mounted on it would lose any automation, the iris has to be manually stopped down. If novices use it to dip their toes in film photography, it would end up being quite infuriating, and might lead them to swear off film altogether. In a sense, it might offer some modern conveniences, but it also takes away some very basic and necessary functions.

  30. Greg Derozier on March 9, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    This is just plain silly!

  31. RWS Tech on March 9, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    I don’t think it’ll die out. I think they’ll make an "I Body" that has shutter priority and program. If this does well, it’ll incentivise them to make new things. I’m gonna get one. My Canon A1 will always be my number 1, but this can totally be my travel camera or might be a neat break from that Canon A series cloth shutter look.

  32. XY Zhou on March 9, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    I do not think this is for me as my F3s served every single bit of my needs and will last longer than my life time (probably my kids, my grand kids…. if they still be interested), I am just happy to see someone putting in effort to bring back some classic stuff back to the world. This is definitely an amazing thing for film photography community

  33. MichalT on March 9, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Hello KingJvpes. Next Fake New Camera is "Ihagee Elbaflex". Only that for nothing else, "Kiev 19", who had amputated the light meter, repainted and renamed it and appropriated the patent for himself.

  34. Valentin Olar on March 9, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    keep seeing this hoodie ,you should come to Paris i¨ll host you! PEACE

  35. Jonflip on March 9, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Hmm… i don’t see the need for a digitalized analog kamera.. i like a mech camera best myself and would never get one. If it’s what new photographers need, it is great but it’s not my kind of camera

  36. Alice Lane on March 9, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    So…….WHERE is the camera.?

  37. neil piper on March 9, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    It’s following on from Lomography with its overpriced shitter cameras. As long as the film and chemicals are around I can continue to use my Zorki 4k with it’s awesome Jupiter 8 50mm f2 lens.
    Kodak. Bring back Bromesko Chlorobromide paper and Kodachrome. Please.

  38. Fabian Wolf on March 9, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    The Body of the Reflex is too expensive. I stay with my F301 & SRT super

  39. Funktrainer on March 9, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    This camera makes no sense. There are plenty of working film camera bodies out there and parts for the mechanical ones are readily available. This thing won’t last twenty plus years. That plate will fall off and the funky battery will die as well as the cheapo electronics inside.

  40. Randall Stewart on March 9, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    This video was made in reaction to a Kickstarter campaign, the goal being a 35mm SLR, very conventional except for two points: (1) mid-roll interchangeable film backs; nice feature last used by Zeiss and Mamyia in the 1960s, and (2) interchangeable lens mounts for various systems; more to expedite selling into multiple markets than a user benefit. After a year+,: no notable progress toward producing a camera. The Kickstarter yielded about 450 backers kicking in about $150,00. Who is going to design and manufacture a new 35mm SLR for $150k? (Lab-box is still struggling to make a plastic film tank, is a year overdue, and has $750,000 to work with.) They are still taking money and acting like this is going to happen, always "next year". At a projected $500+ each, there is almost no market for these cameras, as the used camera market is full of better quality products, assuming this one ever sees daylight. The sales model is about 25 years too soon. I think this one is classic Kickstarter sucker bait. They have one or two hand-built (alleged) working prototypes, and that’s all there will ever be. If you think about buying into this, Run!

  41. rdelprin on March 9, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    this camera needs to happen… even if new shooters open their eyes to all the nikons, canons, minoltas etc all the old bodies from the 60s 70s 80s are failing, and they have no manufacture support anymore. Even Leica discontinued the M7. We need this, we better hope it causes competition, need this to keep film alive.

  42. Alice Lane on March 9, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Oh Boy, is this another one of those Kick-Starter money scams.? To my knowledge, they still do not have a functioning prototype. As others have said, this will be stop-down metering. Hardly a great recommendation for a film ca,era of 2018. I wonder if anybody reading these comments have given these guys money.?

  43. denny11lane on March 9, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    ………you have nothing to worry about. The cameras does not even exist 🙂
    Does anybody ever follow up on Kick-starter Projects that turn out to be scams.?

  44. vancitygoobz on March 9, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    just pick up a nikon f3 lol

  45. S. Stella on March 9, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    I agree that this is a really cool project, and I’m glad it’s happening, but these cameras will never become massive sellers. Not as long as there are still millions of working 35mm slrs floating around. As you’ve pointed out, a working SRT-101 with a standard lens can be had for cheap. On that point, I appreciate that you rep Minolta so hard. I’ve got two xd-11’s an, srt-202, several hi-matics, an instant-pro, and an xe-7 on the way. So I gotta wonder why don’t you sell that eos 3 and get a dynax 7? Do it!

  46. John Taylor on March 9, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Why … I already have a 30+ yr old 35mm, and it shows no sign of giving up working, and a DSLR that can use old lenses.

  47. Arm Head on March 9, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    What I’d love to have is a Sony E-mount film camera.
