Your Macro Photos!

Hello,

Here is a selection of our favourite macro photos submitted to us by you! We love seeing your photography work, so please carry on sending us your photos. We hope some of these photos inspire you to try capturing different subjects using different photographic lighting techniques.

We love this photo. We really like how the insect really pops out and shows excellent detail. Bugs are so cool!

Another great shot of a fly side profile. We really like how the insect contrasts amazingly against the black background.

Ice is a fantastic subject for macro photography. It comes in loads of different forms and we think Dave has captured this amazing shot superbly. The Ice has literally frozen the grass in time.

An amazing floral macro photograph by David. We really like the composition of the flower with the bright centre drifting off to the soft red petals.

A super close up of a flower. The colours are really vibrant and amazing, and is it just us… or does it kinda look like a friendly monster face? Awesome.

This shot is great and is of some fibre optic cable ends. Subjects like this can make amazingly abstract photographs that are different and unique. We think this would make an amazing desktop wall paper Helen!

Awesome water droplet shot by Karl. Choosing a good background to go with your subject is very important, as this image shows.

Awesome image of a insect submitted to us by Marc. The pose is striking, which makes the photo engaging. Great shot of the eyes too!

Had to include two of the photos submitted by Michel of his floral macro images. They are outstanding, using a light to highlight specific areas of a flower. The colours blend together really well and the images have a great contrast.

A product shot of a watch by Sam. Awesome image, it looks like a computer render! This reminds us that we need to give this a go using Adaptalux!

Thank you for submitting us your images. Sorry if we didn’t include yours, we can only feature some of them. Lets do this again soon, it was fun.

Many thanks,

The Adaptalux Team.

Adaptalux Lens Cloths and Progress….

Hello all!

We just wanted to write a quick update regarding our progress this week. We still can’t get over the support we received on Kickstarter! You are all amazing.

 

Sam is going through the design work with a tooth pick to ensure everything is how it should be before we start ordering tooling. The engineering drawings for the diffusers and colour filters are now finalised and ready. Next week he will be working on finalising the Lighting Arms. In terms of the business side, we are currently in talks with some distributors who would like to stock and sell Adaptalux. We will keep you updated about this!

We have been busy gathering the information for the Little Snapper and Sharing’s Caring pledges. Please find below example images for the Adaptalux Lens cloth designs. Sharing’s Caring pledgers can select which cloth they would like to receive in the survey we have sent out through Kickstarter.

Our online shop is now up and running. However, it is still in its early phase and there may be a few problems that we are trying to fix over the remainder of this week. If you are having any problems trying to purchase anything off our store then please let us know by emailing sg@adaptalux.com.

Has anyone been doing any Macro Photography over the last week? We would love to see your images on our Facebook wall or Flickr page!

Many thanks,

Yay! We made it on Kickstarter…

Hello everyone!

We are pleased to tell you that we have now raised over £100,000 on our Kickstarter campaign. Thats over $153,000 and it means we are now over our funding goal! We would like to thank everyone who has supported the campaign over the last 6 weeks. We are very humbled and we really appreciate your support. Did you know Adaptalux is now the 9th highest funded photography product in the design category of Kickstarter ever! We cannot wait to get Adaptalux into your hands, and see your amazing photographs.

We still have over 2 days left of the campaign, so lets try and reach our first stretch goals! So please, carry on sharing the campaign with your friends and via social media. You have all done a fantastic job so far!

Here is the Kickstarter link:- https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1447024032/adaptalux-an-adaptable-miniature-lighting-studio

Again, thank you for your support. You all mean the world to us as the backers who have made Adaptalux possible and we will never forget your support.

The Adaptalux Team.

The Future is Bright for Adaptalux!

1 Week left to support Adaptalux on Kickstarter! Please CLICK HERE to find out how to pledge and get your own Adaptalux.

We have now raised over £81,000, which is over $123,000! Absolutely amazing and we are very thankful to everyone who has supported us so far.

We just want to give you a quick insight to our future plans with Adaptalux. Our Kickstarter campaign is a key stepping stone to an incredible Adaptalux product range in the future. It is important to stress, all future Adaptalux attachments WILL be compatible with the current Control Pod and attachments. The beauty of modular design is we can create new components that work well with our existing designs. Here is a quick infographic we have put together showing some of the future and current plans for Adaptalux components, which will expand your lighting capabilities even more.

By coming in with us now via our Kickstarter campaign, you will help us achieve this key stepping stone and you will be able to expand on your Adaptalux kit immensely in the future.

Production

We feel it is important to stress a few things regarding the production of Adaptalux. Firstly, we have already invested a lot of money into this project to get to the stage where we are. The prototype shown in our campaign is a pre-production model, with the parts manufactured by our chosen manufacturers. This puts us in a great place, we know our product can be manufactured using the techniques and materials we want to use, and we know the companies we have chosen can deliver to the quality that we expect at the prices we have been quoted. All of the macro images we show have been captured using our prototype, we know it works well and we are confident you will love it! Some projects use 3D printed prototypes for Kickstarter, which is the reason some get into a sticky situation later down the line with product delays and cost implications. We have made sure this will not happen to us.

Distributor Interest

We are already in talks with a major global distributor who want to take Adaptalux into photography retail outlets. They absolutely love the idea and think the product could be a game changer. This is fantastic news and it further supports that once we are successfully funded, the future of Adaptalux looks bright!

Carry on Sharing

We are now in the final week of the Adaptalux Kickstarter campaign. We are still confident we can reach our goal with your continued support, and what we have achieved so far is a fantastic achievement in itself, no one had even heard of us over a month ago! So please, share the campaign, shout about it from rooftops, tell your friends… with your help we can do this!

Thank you once again!

The Adaptalux Team!

ADAPTALUX JUST GOT BETTER – Bluetooth and Wifi Compatibility at Launch!

bluetooth banner

This is a very exciting update based on feedback from our existing Kickstarter supporters. We have been busy working behind the scenes to bring a great feature to Adaptalux for the product launch. The Control Pod will now be Bluetooth and Wi-Fi ready from launch at no extra cost.

What does this mean?

This means the Adaptalux App has just became a much more powerful tool for photography lighting. You will now be able to upload and download your lighting electronic settings wirelessly to and from the Control Pod with one click of a button on your phone or computer. It also allows for ‘live’ electronic adjustments for your Adaptalux lighting environment using the Adaptalux App. Furthermore, it will allow for firmware updates, so we can add new electronic features to your Adaptalux over the air or through USB.

An Exciting Future:-

This is an exciting update, which opens up lots of possibilities for the future of Adaptalux. For example, we have ideas for RGB panel attachments that will give you the ability to mix your own lighting colours on your phone. We also have an idea to integrate a ‘Live lighting show’ feature to the app for videography work.

To find out more, follow the link! ADAPTALUX UPDATE

We really hope you are as excited as we are about this update, so please spread the news with your friends and via social media.

Many thanks,

The Adaptalux Team!
