Matthew Epler, Founder of Kinograph writes:
“Kinograph’s source files have been released as of today. You can find links to the hardware and software on the homepage (http://kinograph.cc).
“For those of you waiting for Raspberry Pi code, you will have to wait a little longer, unfortunately. I have not been using the Pi very much during development and will need to revisit the code to make sure it still works.
“I’m also happy to announce that Kinograph will be featured in the upcoming MAKE magazine issue, due to be released at the end of this week. In expectation of a surge in interest, I’ve created a Twitter and Facebook account for Kinograph and I hope that you’ll join me on one or both of those sites.
“But there’s MORE! You may notice on the site that I have announced the development of Kinograph8, a smaller version of the existing Kinograph made specifically for digitizing 8mm and Super8mm home movies. It will be launched with a Kickstarter campaign later this summer and I’ll be sure to give you some sneak previews along the way.
“The website has also been updated with more information about where I’m headed with Kinograph and if you’d like to ask any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
“Lastly, I want to thank you for your endless patience and encouragement. If you are getting this email, you are among the earliest supporters Kinograph and are extremely important to its continued improvement. I would like to start developing a closer relationship with those of you who would be interested in building your own Kinograph or owning one in the future. To that effect, I will be sending out an invite to this mailing list to participate in the first ever Kinograph user survey. It will attempt to get a better picture of your needs and wants for an open source film digitizing platform. I hope you’ll participate when it is released. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s ready.
