Hello to All the Beautiful People of our Big Jollylook Community!

Thank you for backing Jollylook EYE!

We hope you all are well, staying safe, and staying healthy.

We have some exciting news to share.

Over the past two months, we have been working hard to improve the design and functionality of the Jollylook EYE. To avoid issues and ensure perfect focus, we've decided to make a one-piece design, replacing the previous moving mechanism:

Additionally, because people using our cameras sometimes turn the development crank too fast, there are "artifacts" that can appear in the top corner of the photo.

To solve this situation, we decided to reject the crank and create the development knob. Due to its size, the knob rotates slower and therefore develops the photos without these "artifacts" and ensures a high-quality development of the photos.

Also, recently we had the pleasure of showcasing the Jollylook EYE at the Spielwarenmesse toy fair. Everyone who saw the Jollylook EYE was really excited and the response was overwhelming:

With the design upgrades, including the transition to a one-piece design, the focal length of the Jollylook EYE has changed. That's why, we needed to source and match new lenses to complement the pair of our existing lenses. 

 Lenses we already have in stock

We've found the perfect new lenses, received the samples in January, tested them and they fit great.

Unfortunately, due to these changes, we weren't able to place the order for the new lenses before the Chinese New Year festivities began. As you may know, all factories in China close for the celebrations during this period. 

Our current plan:

Final Component Ordering: All Chinese factories are now getting back in business and we're currently in the process of ordering all the final components, including new lenses and molds for the shutter mechanism. Once they arrive, we'll swiftly move into the assembly phase.

Assembly: As soon as we receive all components, we'll commence assembly and begin shipping out rewards. We expect to have all components from China by the end of March, at which point we'll have pre-cut Jollylook EYE bodies ready. In April, we'll begin the packing process to ensure that all rewards are prepared for shipment. 

Estimated Shipping: We expect to ship all the rewards to our beautiful backers in April.

We're committed to keeping you informed every step of the way. Expect our next update in a month, where we hope to share the great news that all Jollylook EYEs have been shipped.

Once more, we sincerely thank you for your support and trust throughout this incredible journey. Your contribution has been instrumental in making all of this possible, and we couldn't have done it without you!

Stay Jolly!

Until next time,

The Jollylook Team.
