PONF Camera Update: First 3D Design Revealed

- 6 years ago

Some of our regular readers will remember our announcement of the PONF Camera, back in September 2017. We conducted an interview with the driving force behind the new multi-back camera system, Raffaello Palandri. Things have moved on since then. Read below for the latest update 

In a recent update from PONF GmbH, we set eyes on the very first 3D printed model of the skeleton of the PONF Multiback Open Camera. The camera is the first draft of what the company is billing as a camera that will become the most iconic camera on the market! Bold words indeed.

The company report to be working hard to make sure the new camera system is as great as the expectations they are fuelling.

Next steps:

  • PONF is starting making our first functional prototypes.
  • PONF will officially present the product.
  • PONF will introduce the PONF Fellowship: from the sound of it, a community platform for users to get the best from their PONF camera experience.
