To create a working model of the camera, Relonch modified a Samsung Galaxy NX mirrorless with a nonremovable 30mm f2 lens affixed to it. The NX is a pretty big camera, so the company will probably switch to a smaller-bodied option by the time it ships in 2018.

I don't think this will ever be a mass-market service, so numbering shouldn't get unwieldly.

We got to try the camera in San Francisco. Overall, the photos look very pleasing. They have the look of light HDR with some vignetting (dark areas around the edges of the photo). Click through for more sample photos.

Relonch doesn't skimp on the saturation in its color choices, though there's tan and a black-with-red-stitching for more somber photographers.
