After two and a half years of waiting, postponing, lame excuses and unexpected last minute delays I’m not sure if this is really real or if I passed away last night and woke up in a parallel universe of infinite possibilities. But a box arrived today and it says Lab-Box.
I’ll keep you posted when I develop my first roll of film in it but I have been super lazy shooting film for a couple of months. And to be honest I was even thinking of quitting film altogether as I currently can’t justify keeping all the gear for two rolls of film a year but maybe this little box came just in time.
I’ll keep it short but it looks like it’s getting pretty cold in hell right now – the LabBox project seems to be shipping the final product. We’ll see how it goes and if it arrives. And if it’s working.
Once again there was a delay in Lab-Box’s communication updates and another promise wasn’t kept. Of course this belated update has the same old purpose that we already know too well – they are sorry but they have to tell us another unforseen delay in delievery and the scapegoat is clear: the Chinese!
I have owned my Contax T2 for 2 years, and I have grown very fond of it. When you realize that worldly possessions begin to take possession of you, it’s time to part with it. I hope that another photographer will have as much joy with the camera as I had.
As I currently have a long article in the making which still needs some time to be finished I’ll just post a short update as the Lab-Box Kickstarter campaign informed all backers about its latest progress.
No reason for premature celebrations but it looks like the Lab-Box development tank will one day become reality. The makers posted a new update here and they seem to have made some progress. And they encountered new issues, so hang on…
