New patent!

After around 10 months of work with my roommate Yichi, we finally developed a digitizing camera back that can be fitted onto Yichi’s vintage film camera. Back in the summer of 2019, I have filed a patent application with the help of a firm. My roommate’s website has a complete log of our progress for this project.

I got the good news a week ago that China National Intellectual Property Administration has patented our design as a utility patent (Utility patent is usually processed at a much faster speed, while invention patent usually takes 3 years or more to go through). Note that all of the material are in Chinese (as well as the certificate) because we applied in China.

The outline of this digitizing back appeared on the patent application

Anyway I attached the Google patent link (It seems like Google machine translates the document). And hope you guys enjoy!
