iOgrapher Support Case for iPad Mini

$16,728

165

The iOgrapher iPad Mini Mount is the first all purpose film making case for the iPad Mini. It will be made from high grade plastic and extremely tough. Users can add 37mm lenses to its lens mount area for wide angles, fisheye look, and macro or close up (lenses not included.), and attach lighting and audio gear on its 3 accessory shoes on the top. The bottom area allows you to mount the iOgrapher iPad Mini Mount to any standard tripod, monopod,  or portable dolly.

As a teacher, students would use their iPads for filming projects in my classes. I was always a bit peeved seeing the shaky footage. What it really needed was handles for steady hand support. So we added them to our case. They work tremendously well too.

The iOgrapher Mini Mount is a working prototype and field tested. The next step is to get the mold created and the first batch made. With your help we can move on to this phase and get the iOgrapher out asap. We have already sourced out our manufacturers, and the iOgrapher will be made in the USA. Our goal is to get it into our backers hands by June 2013 just in time for summer sports, movie making, parties and everything else you want to capture and share!

Now a little about iOgrapherU.com! After years of teaching and doing video tutorials  I will be creating the ultimate site to learn to use the iPad and the iOgrapher Mini Mount. The site will be filled with video tutorials on getting you up to speed with the best apps and workflows for video, audio, storyboarding, screenwriting, editing and more. This of iOgrapherU as your personal content creation learning hub. And iOgrapherU will only be open to owners of the iOgrapher Mini Mount and other products we plan on creating.

The Bigger Picture

We are at work on the full iPad, iPhone 5 and 4S versions! The goal is to have multiple versions of the iOgrapher to fit your lifestyle and needs. Rest assured we are on our way to provide options for all you iOgraphers!

Risks and challenges

The iOgrapher Mini Mount schematics have been given to several plastic molding companies under strict NDA. We have received bids for their services and are currently deciding the best course for the now and the future of the iOs accessory company we plan on creating. While we plan on working with the best, there could be some production delays that are no fault of iOgrapher.

As with any company our challenge after a successful Kickstarter will be to continue innovating. Apple is known to create new versions of products that may change the specifications we currently use. We will do our utmost to stay on top and offer products to meet those needs.
