Reveni Labs has launched a Kickstarter for an exciting new product that promises to be a game-changer for film camera enthusiasts, repair technicians, and collectors. The Reveni Labs Camera Tester is a state-of-the-art testing machine that could completely revolutionize how film cameras are maintained and assessed, by providing in-depth information about the device. 

Just the other day I was sorting through all my film camera gear and I wished there was a device for testing old film cameras. I have three bodies: a Nikon FM2, a Canon AE-1 and a Canon AE-1 Program. I know the FM2 works, and the shutter on the AE-1 Program is broken (because I got a roll of film from it back that was all black), but I have no idea about the AE-1. I don’t want to waste another roll of 35mm film just to find out it also doesn’t work, so for me the Reveni Labs Camera Tester would be incredibly useful.
