Rama Works x MIGHTYKILLERS® Photography Accessories - Development

135 Film 2U Canister

After receiving feedback from MIGHTYKILLERS® on the 2U prototype of the film canister, we’ve made some adjustments that we think will make it ready for market. We’re currently waiting on the second round of prototypes for review. We’ve added a new closure system to the top lid to make it quicker and more satisfying to open and close the film canister lids. Instead of the previous twist-lock cap, we’re utilizing our new pushbutton cam-lock that will snap the lid in when simply pushing it into the enclosure.

RW-MK-2U-CANISTER-01.1568-2.jpg

Here is what the Rama Works - Pushbutton cam-lock mechanism looks like.

RW-MK-2U-CANISTER-01.1567.jpg

Past this, we’re looking to introduce a new material / edition to the lineup. Mirror-Polished Aluminium. This edition will beautifully wear as used, giving itself character and stories over time. We’ve also increased the specifications on the black-anodised film canister to be a Military Spec Type III hard-anodising - this will increase it’s strength and resistance to scratches and wear.

We’ve been wanting to do camera accessories for a long time now, and a great opportunity came up with someone we’ve been following for a while with MIGHTYKILLERS. We have designed for them a series of accessories that we look forward to releasing to the market. To be released: 135 Dual Film Canister, 120 Quad Film Canister, Soft Release & a Cold Shoe Cover.

M60-A

All M60-A enclosures have been completed and will be shipped by sea-freight to our Melbourne Warehouse. A little delay has occured due to the Mid-Autumn festival/National holiday but they will be returning in the next few days to promptly pack and prepare the shipping container for shipment. Sea-Freight will take around 2-3 weeks to arrive to our bays in Melbourne, Australia. We will then package and ship in batches of colour and country and aim to complete this over the course of a week with the help of a few hired hands.

Meanwhile our team down under (Wilba, Kate & Rama) have been programming, testing and packing the PCB’s whilst we wait for the freight shipment of the M60-A enclosures to arrive. We appreciate the patience of everyone who participated in the pre-orders and we’re excited to see these unboxed and assembled in their own unique combinations.

M60-A Manufacturing shots

During our visit to our manufacturers we where lucky enough to see some of the M60-A’s undergo the anodising process. Here are some photos of the enclosures receiving their perfect colour. The jigs are all custom made to hold the enclosures in such a way to hide the anode mark. Anodising is all about timing and craftsmanship by extremely skilled workers. Seeing the process in person really makes you appreciate the beauty of chemical reactions much more. First the M60-A goes through a number of cleaning baths to remove any contaminates which may be present on the surface, it then is placed immediately into an ultrasonic bath for a matter of minutes and directly placed into multiple colour tanks where it quickly starts to show its colour.

M6-B

M6-B is well into production. We will be receiving the XO caps from Signature Plastics shortly, the PCB’s will be complete in 2-3 weeks and the enclosures after that. We have ordered many extras to stock on our site for those who missed out.


Pas that, the new XO pins have arrived! This time we laser-cut them out of mirrored stainless steel. These are much tougher and cleaner than the first iteration.
