This morning, Pixii – the new smartphone connected digital rangefinder – has just been officially announced as available to order from their website here!
Pixii is a camera I have been fascinated in since I first heard about it a few years ago. I must admit, like many people I did spend some time doubting that it would materialise… That was until a few months ago when the David Barth, the man behind the camera, got in touch with me to ask if I would like to beta test it. Since then, I have been enjoying using the camera as well as getting involved in the latter stages of the development.
This whole process has given something of an insight both into the camera itself, but also David’s motivations when it comes to building it, and indeed his plans for its future.
I am yet to write a full review of the camera, not least because the various versions of it that I have been using haven’t been final production cameras, but I did write something of a primer into the camera, which can be found here.
I had a quick chat with David this morning, he’s pretty excited to finally be announcing the Pixii’s availability, has been thrilled at the amount of attention the launch has already had, and is already trying to deal with the issues of coping with demand – in his words “It’s a good problem to have, and the one we secretly wished for”.
I’m excited for him too! This thing has been a long time in the making, and frankly, I’m beyond impressed that he’s made it this far. I’m just looking forward to getting my hands on the final production camera.
If you’re as excited as me and want to order one of the first batch of Pixii cameras you can do so on their website here
