    Looking for instant film camera developers. **new product concept**

    Hi Everyone

    My name is Ken I am new to this forum and so kindly ask for peoples directions and opinions about a product I want to create. I am an independant innovator and looking for people who can help me develop an instant film device similar to the pogo polaroid and the LG pocket zink printer. I am hoping to present this on Kickstarter and believe there is a great potential interest for the product. Personally I believe it looks better than the impossible projects camera launched on kickstarter. My issues so far is that I do not have a prototype except for concetual 3D renderings. I have contacted polaroid who would unfortunately be interested only when I have a prototype and also tried contacting Fujifilm and even Zink... which sadly have not responded to me via email. I am looking for suggestions on how I can commercialise my product and possibly potential developers who I can share the earnings if successful later on.

    Thank you Kindly

    The real secret in making an instant camera is coming up with the correct shapes for the rollers that control the spread of the developing 'goo'

    The "developer" is actually a thickened monobath which not only develops the film but also fixes it. If you are interested get a copy of Grant Haist's Monobath Manual. Used copies usually sell for $10 to $15.

    I'm confused. Is this going to be an instant-digital camera (the Pogo) or a film-based instant camera like an old Polaroid?

    I think the OP is looking for an engineer or company to help him develop the camera, not a film developer.
    Regards,

    Hi Horace

    I apologise but I can not provide one at this stage as I am bound by a NDA.

    Hi Jim

    I am actually trying to aim to build a product which has the best mobility therefore the smallest with similar effects to the polaroid films. Zink can be made really small and then to carry around while the fuji instax film is still a bit to large. So I am open to have it function either way as long as it is thin and small.

    Looking for instant film camera developers. **new product concept**

    I woke up this morning with an idea for a teleporting rocket ship that fits in my backpack. I contacted NASA but they have not returned my call.

    Boeing said they will help me once I have a prototype, but I don't have those skills.

    I would show you my pencil sketches but I am under an NDA.

    I'll be starting a kick starter project. Who wants in?
