    I don't think they are going to get close to their goal with 9 days to go. OTOH, Reflex has $50k more than they wanted...

    61 backers, but only 48 are buying a camera or camera/lens combination. It like the Reflex: 457 backers, but only 337 are buying a camera or camera/lens combination. Both seem like epic fails, and not without good reason.

    I think you can put a fork in this one and call it done. 6 days to go and they are losing backers!

    The Ihagee Elbaflex project failed on Kickstarter.

    They gathered pledges amounting to $29,868, versus a goal set at $50,000, from 65 backers who ordered 49 cameras and 5 lenses.

    Since it was an ‘all or nothing’ project, it is over.

    So what are they going to do with that big box of NOS Kiev 19M cameras with bad meters?

    EBay? "Like new. Works perfectly, light meter untested..."
