Hello Everyone,

Summer is now truly here in the UK. Summer marks the “macro galore” season, with so many plants and wildlife coming onto full bloom. Its for sure, our favourite time of the year!

Sharing’s Caring Lens Cloths:-

We received the lens cloths for the “Sharing’s Caring” award this week. We shipped them to the relevant backers yesterday. We have to say we are very pleased with them, they look amazing and we hope you find them amazing too! Thanks again for your pledge.

Get Taking Some Macro photos!

We really enjoyed receiving your macro images a few weeks ago, they were amazing! We loved it so much we are running a competition next week where you can submit macro photos and the winner will receive a free starter pack at the product launch. We will also have runner-up prizes! So start capturing some macro photos ready for the competition!

The Adaptalux Store…

Right, seriously the Kickstarter price sale ends on Sunday. We have finally got round to establishing our new sale prices and these will be updated over the weekend. So this is definitely your last chance to get any Adaptalux additional components at a Kickstarter price.

We are also going to have some new additions to the Adaptalux store soon too. More to come on that next week!

Surveys:-

Surveys for all pledge awards have now been issued. Please check your email and fill them in as soon as you can.

Manufacture:-

The first orders for some parts have now been made. There are a lot of parts in Adaptalux and this will be an ongoing process over the next few months. As soon as we receive updates on tooling and other manufacturing information you will be the first to know. We cannot wait to receive our first injection moulding tooling images that is for sure! Sam has also been making improvements to the design for a better assembly process. The changes generally will make Adaptalux feel even better. Although the quality of the product was already very high!

App:-

The Adaptalux App and L.E.D is starting to come along nicely. We should be receiving our first wireframe of the app very soon, which we can use on our smart phones and check the flow is right and user friendly. We will post pictures when we receive that!

Don’t forget about our social media pages. We upload images to Instagram almost every day, so why not follow us for some daily macro goodness! Facebook and Twitter are the places to be for updates on the go, we update these pages as soon as we have something exciting to shout about. All the links are below!
