Yashica’s digiFilm Camera, the Y35, has raised nearly $1 million on Kickstarter just under two days since it launched.

At the time of writing, Yashica’s foray into digital…film has raised some $6,602,889 Hong Kong dollars, or £641,606 / $843,607, in donations on the crowdfunding website.

This places the company well past its goal of HK$800,000 with 37 days left to go on its campaign.

The crowdfunding campaign was preceded by a month of teaser videos on YouTube, alluding to an ‘unprecedented camera.’ However when the Yashica Y35 was revealed on 10 October earlier this week it was met with mixed opinions.

These results show that perhaps enthusiasm for the new Yashica digital film camera isn’t so mixed!
