Apparently You Bought Some Bolexes

Joe Rubinstein has posted a lengthy and detailed update on the Digital Bolex, including some historical perspective.

I was particularly gratified to read this (something Elle Schneider had also mentioned in an interview):

At the end of the day, We reached our personal goal of $250k on our kickstarter campaign and sold out of cameras within 36 hours of our launch and, according to Kickstarter reports, we sold more cameras due to Stu’s blogs than any other single external site.

Now Joe and Elle know what I’ve known all along—I may have a smaller audience than some of the other filmmaking blogs out there, but my audience is the real deal. They think for themselves, they actually shoot, and they put their money where their mouths are.

I bought the 50 f1.4, T2i, and several books including the DV Rebel's Guide because of this blog. I've written a screenplay in Fountain format because of this blog. Come to think of it, I'm in my 3rd term at FxPhd because of this blog as well.

Thanks, Stu! You bring us the relevant news, products and insights we're looking for.
