DOC'S INSTANT ADVENTURE CONTINUES



 
Dear fellow packfilm adventure travelers,
 
I am writing this update more than 2 years after I started this adventure on March 11th of 2016. As you know I was not really able to present you some promising progress so far, and the last update has been posted more than 6 months ago. For many of you it might have seemed like this has come to an end. Today I am happy to report that quite the contrary is true, as with SUPERSENSE being a magnet for crazy analog tinkerers, inventors, makers, believers and dreamers, I could recruit a really breathtakingly powerful league of SUPERHEROS over the last few months, capable and ready to fight for and develop truly realistic options for the future of packfilm.
 
I hope and I know and I feel that the packfilm community's heart out there is still beating, united by love and passion for this endangered medium.  Together we are strong and unstoppable, stubborn as a rock and I cordially invite you to re-start this adventure with me.
 
From tomorrow on I will proudly introduce my new league of PACKFILM SUPERHEROES as well as our super smart strategy that we developed over the last months, as we know that this is most probably our very last chance.
 
So please undust your packfilm cameras, stay tuned and delight us with your trust and support one more time to together prepare for the ultimate battle for our beloved packfilm
 
Yours truly excited,
 
Florian 'Doc' Kaps

    Woooooohoo!! Thanks for this promising new effort, Doc. I thought all hope was lost when Fuji packfilm bit the dust. My college roommates and I have been slowly milking my last pack of FP-100C, and blinding people with the flashbulbs. This is exciting news.
