Born in China, Team GREAT JOY is a promising enterprise of senior professionals and engineers from various backgrounds. We are dedicated to providing affordable & good quality lenses and connecting creativity and future technologies for moving images and professional productions worldwide with Exceptional Quality, Exceptional Value, and Exceptional Affordability.

Our first 1.8x anamorphic set campaign has achieved incredible success and has been selected as a Project We Love on Kickstarter. To this day, we continue to receive positive feedback from backers.

We’ve gained a lot of valuable experience from our previous crowdfunding campaign. This time we’ve introduced new suppliers and made sufficient preparation in advance to ensure the stable perk fulfillment. And we’ve made detailed schedule for production and shipping.

Despite this, no project is completely risk-free. In this campaign, our biggest challenge is the fulfillment of the amber flare version. In spite of our best efforts, it is still possible that your enthusiasm may exceed our production capacity. When any unexpected delays occur, we’ll keep communication and transparency as our top priorities.
