Hello, Beautiful People of The Jollylook Community!

Thank you for backing Jollylook!

We hope this update finds you well and in good spirits. As always, we're grateful for your continued support and faith in our project.

It's been a while since our last update, and we're excited to share some important progress with you, as well as some adjustments to our timeline due to the challenges we've faced in establishing our new location and team.

First of all, we're thrilled to announce that we've successfully produced and now shipping all rewards for the Jollylook Pinhole - The Instant Film Camera DIY Kit campaign! It's been a great experience and has provided us with valuable insights that will benefit the Jollylook Auto project.

As you know, we've been building everything from scratch in a new country - Slovakia, which has required more time and financial resources than initially estimated. However, we're happy to report that, thanks to the success of the Pinhole DIY kit campaign, we were able to purchase all the necessary equipment and set up our production facilities.

To move faster with the Auto square and save on the costs of the square developer molds, we plan to launch a Pinhole Square DIY kit Kickstarter campaign as soon as all the DIY Mini kits are delivered. This will enable us to manage our resources better and deliver the Jollylook Auto square to our backers faster.

Now, let's dive into the latest news and revised timeline for Jollylook Auto:

  1. Camera Body Production: We will begin cutting and assembling camera bodies in April. We're confident that the high-quality materials and precise laser-cutting machines will allow us to create camera bodies that are even better than intended.
  2. Electronics: We expect to receive the electronics test batch in May. If all goes well with the final tests, we will order the full batch, and we'll immediately begin assembling the first minor batch of Jollylook Auto cameras. We'll fine-tune the assembly process to ensure top-quality products for all our backers.
  3. Revised Timeline: Due to the challenges associated with establishing our new location and team, we expect to have the first Jollylook Auto cameras ready for shipment by July. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work diligently to provide the best product.

Please remember that the timeline above is an estimate and is subject to change. We'll keep you informed of any updates or potential delays as they arise.
