    Default FLy boxes and photography - two projects I recently backed

    I posted about both these on my blog, but i dont get a lot of traffic via the signature links from here so i thought i'd post about them.

    1 is a fly box the other is a light tent for photography which particularly appealed to me since i use a my smart phone camera for all photography.

    Anyways. Here are the links for those who might be interested (Both are on kickstarter)

    FLY BOX

    LIGHT TENT

    About kickstarter

    Its a fund sourcing site for interesting product. You select a pledge level your interested in , for the fly box, its $12 to get one box (THere are other higher level pledges). IF the project doesnt reach it funding minimum by the end of the funding period, then you dont pay. If it reaches its funding minimum, then you pay the amount you pledged at the end of the funding period, which for the fly box, is mid Jan 2014. Once the product is manufactured, it is shipped to the backers. For the fly box, this will be july.

    The Light box has reached its funding minimum and so will be funded - it is currently in preproduction and will be shipped in FEB 2014 i believe.

    The 12$ I put in includes that I'll get one of the boxes

    Just an update, it appears as if they're trying to have these made in the USA, if that kind if stuff is important to you (it is to me) think about tossing them a few bucks.

    They also did hit their original quota, meaning, if you do donate 12$ or more you WILL get their flybox.
