Phones and Cameras advanced greatly in recent years. Many of those devices rival Hollywood quality cameras just from few years ago. Even though picture quality is so great, the outer shape hasn’t advanced much.

You still need to be able to film steady and comfortably, and typical shape and ergonomics have not changed much and make it difficult. It’s hard to film steady video with brick shaped devices. Without holding the camera comfortably, your video will suffer jerkiness, while your hands will get tired, and interesting angles or motions are impossible to achieve. 

phone is easy to fall and DSLR is tired to hold.
phone is easy to fall and DSLR is tired to hold.

With Lokee you can videotape quickly and easily. With improved ergonomics of small camera, new creative angles are possible. Lokee was designed to provide you with high quality feel and handling enhancements, while being small and lightweight. Lokee is also offered with additional accessories to further enhance its abilities and lets you step into professional filming area, even when only using a Smart Phone.

Lokee works with many different devices. Mirrorless Cameras, DSLR Camera, BMPCC, Digital Camera and even Smartphone can all use Lokee to enhance video quality.

Lokee was mostly designed for small and light weight cameras, however many small DSLRs can also take advantage of what Lokee offers. The maximum distance from screw to right side edge and back side edge is 9cm and 3cm respectively. Please check if your DSLR will fit LOKEE or not.

Lokee Explored Drawing
Lokee Explored Drawing

We are co-operating with a professional USA company, Pro-Media Gear. They produce high quality and professional accessories for photographers and videographers. We have worked together to make many samples for testing. With their engineering support, we keep improving Lokee from previous samples to ensure Lokee is going in the right direction.

All components are custom manufactured using computer numerical control (CNC) processes. We provide high quality finishing and focus on the detail. The product is made with great function and cool appearance. Because of the small size and the movable part, Lokee is more difficult to make than conventional camera cage. Parts have to be accurate.  In PMG's factory, CNC machines are ready to take this challenge and they have enormous experience on CNC production. Working with PMG closely guarantees that the product will be of high quality and will make it a success.

To achieve Lokee’s goal of ultimate small camera accessory we have chosen T6061 Aluminum as base material. It’s known and widely used in Aviation, Space and other critical industries for excellent characteristics, great strength to weight ratio and durability. With this great material we made Lokee weighing only 170 grams, and finished in nice piano black and iron grey anodize. Anodized aluminum in naturally a very pleasant elegant finish, and a very hard, scratch resistant, durable surface with high wear and corrosion resistance. The critical piece which is the base arm is made out of wear resistant heat treated super alloy steel for even higher performance, and this piece being small doesn’t add much to the weight.

We are continuing to work on Lokee's Handle as it's still not up to our liking. We will improve the mounting from two screw to one screw. And a clamp or thumb screw will be made for even faster installation. The final handle maybe different than the one shown. What we are going to revise is to ensure you can achieve a better experience.

Please support us to make it come true and feel free to leave a comment about Lokee. Your opinion is key for us to keep on improving our products.

                       

Lokee is fit for blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera. With the new designed top accessory, it's performance will be enhanced greatly.

The most challenging part of Lokee is prototyping which is mostly completed.  This project will prove to us that it is greatly a good idea.  Without your support we cannot make this project.  For a small company like us, it is very difficult to produce a total new product without any support. We need your help to make this happen. We are very confident of Lokee, but you as the "market" are the final decision maker.

The funds we are raising will strictly go to manufacturing, tooling and future development.We’re also designing an additional attached Bluetooth controler for Lokee.With successful Kickstarter campaign, we’ll not only be able to produce Lokee and the remote control, but we can keep making more excellent product for photography and videography.

Let us work together to make more amazing things happen.

Risks and challenges

We have put a lot of effort into Lokee. We have spent so much time on design, test and revisions of samples. We want to make sure Loki fits our requirements and targets. As a company who cares about innovation and user experience, we will do anything to meet customer’s expectations. However, with limited resources, there might still be some issues that we need to overcome for mass production.

Although we are confident on our supply chain and our manufacturing partner, delays can always occur. We will try our best to minimize the risk to ensure the quality and timely delivery.

As the project is still progressing, we may have to make refinements or enhancements to Lokee because we really want this inspiring product to meet every need and desire and put it in your hands quickly.

If you like our product, please do back us up by pledging to this project and help it spread out, please help us use Social Media to enhance visibility of our campaign. Your support is our motivation to keep making other great products. We really thank a lot for your help!
