    There is also the PONF Multiback Open Camera project, we are making a reflex with interchangeable 35 mm film and full frame / APS-C digital backs. The project is starting prototyping and it’s an open one, so everyone can participate.
    We are at http://www.ponfcamera.com

      Hi Raffaello, thank you for sharing this project with us. It looks interesting. So are you going to start a crowdfunding campaign eventually? I will post about the project on twitter and other channels. Thank you

        Hi, thank you for your interest about the project and for the offer of sharing the news.
        About the crowdfunding, we would like to go directly for a pre-sales campaign. Crowdfunding could be amazing but, from an industrial point of view, takes away a lot of energy at an early stage, as you cannot directly finance the project as an investor would.
        As we are an open project, we prefer cooperation rather than competition, so we invite everyone interested in participating in the making of the camera, and then get one, rather than financing a concept where they are not involved.
        We believe that film photography can be revived by projects that deliver reliable products, and that all the knowledge all around it could, and should, be funneled towards the creation of a new market concept, where companies and projects bring together their best knowledge to involve more and more people around photography.
        In this way we will create a long lasting market and not a bubble, in this way we will attract larger investment by the giants in this world.
        We will be more than happy to discuss our ideas with everyone.
