****IMPORTANT UPDATE: RETAIL PRICING, COLORS AND SHIPPING****
We're finalizing the manufacturing costs for Capta where we anticipate setting the retail cost for $34.99 for the silver Capta. Not only does this mean your saving at least $10 from retail pricing (more depending on your pledge), you also gain value by starting off Capta with the accessories such as the suction cup mount and/or sticky pad and letting your imagination lead the way. Those accessories will not be included in the retail price for Capta. Capta supporters, you can be assured that you are getting a great value for your pledge! We thank you for making Capta a reality.
For retail Capta will initially be offered in the silver finish with other colors to follow at a later time including the Red finish currently offered only during this campaign. The Limited Edition Collectors Black/Green Capta will not be offered after the campaign as it was STRICTLY for Kickstarter backers using Kickstarter colors. Kickstarters will be the first ones to get Captas in their hands... :-)
Shipping is included for the $6 pledge only. All other pledges use the graphic below. Thank you.
Please make sure you include the shipping tier that applies to your pledge.
Only a few days left to take advantage of the value that we're offering on Kickstarter. How will you Capta? Find out by getting yours today!
What is Capta?
Capta is a hybrid accessory that combines the features of a tripod mount, a phone stand, and a cable management system. It is a simple elegant device that is easy to transport and store, translates into other uses/features and reduces the frustration of carrying different accessories and costs of always purchasing new ones for each new phone.
Capta has exceeded our original design functions and is capable of doing so much more from the intended to the very unintended. When paired with a suction cup or tripod mount the possibilities and uses increased exponentially. We are humbled by how versatile Capta truly is and we know there is so much more to be discovered.
How does Capta work?
After watching the video above you want to know how Capta works and what it is made from? We have a video that explains all that below:
How strong is the Capta Grip?
You are probably wondering how strong is the grip and is my smartphone safe with Capta? Here is a video that demonstrates the grip of Capta. ( Do not try this test at home)
What devices/cases work with Capta?
You are probably asking what smartphones or cases work with Capta? We have also put together 3 videos showing examples and guidelines of what devices (16 different phones) and cases (5 different case types) Capta works with:
What are the additional items included in some pledges?
Capta is our main product but we have found 4 additional accessories to pair with Capta at different pledge levels that we know our backers will enjoy as well.

THANK YOU KICKSTARTERS!!!Thank you very much for your time and we look forward to delivering your Capta to you. Have a great day. Cheers!!Here are some pictures of Capta in use :-)
We are thoroughly interested in setting up networks to sell Capta. Currently we’re focusing on getting to production and fulfilling our initial kickstarter orders. We are looking forward to exploring the possibilities both domestic and international. Please message us here on kickstarter or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again for your questions and have a splendid day. Cheers!!
Thank you very much for your question - We appreciate it! We have been asked by many of our backers if there will be a Capta for tablets and the answer is Yes. We are working on the design and will let everyone know when we have a suitable solution tested and ready for show. Thanks and have a great day. Cheers!!
Thank you for the question. Yes Capta is compatible with Olloclip and other iphone lens products. Capta only attaches to a portion of your device and you have enough space to add attachments to your device around Capta. Also you also have enough room to hold your phone while Capta is attached. We designed Capta to blend and be out of sight. Sometimes we even forget Capta is attached :-) Thank you again for your question and keep spreading the word. Cheers!!!
Thank you for your question. Capta was designed to be used repeatedly on your device - simply stick it, remove when you are done and repeat when you need again. There will be no residue on your device. This also applies when using different devices at the same time. Thank you again.
Thank you for your question. Light cleaning would be using a damp lint free cloth (lint covers surface and reduces grip) to wipe the pad. Medium cleaning would be running the pad under water and using your fingers to remove any dirt or debris on the pad. If any oils or greasy materials or liquids have gotten on Capta then you could use a mild soap and water to clean the pad. The most important step is to allow Capta to dry completely before using again after any of the cleaning steps above. Thank you again.
Thank you for your question. Capta was designed to be universal and as such it will work with any device that has enough of a flat surface for it to attach to. If your device is very textured or is silicone or rubber based then Capta's hold will be reduced. This can be solved by using a case that isn't textured or rubbery in nature. Thank you again.
Thank you very much for your question. When we were designing our tripod mount our #1 priority was to achieve a solid connection between our device and your phone. We had developed a pet peeve from other mounts the had rubber components to secure your phone - These components would attach to your phone but your phone had the flexibility to move and shake and as such they were ultimately no better than your hand when taking pictures or video. With Capta the bond is very solid and because Capta is screwed to your tripod there is no shaking when you use Capta as a tripod mount for your phone. Thanks again.
Good evening everyone,
It has been brought to our attention that there is a typo in this $35 pledge category. If you notice there are 2 "periods" after "suction cup mount" and that is where it should say "Pu pad included". So everyone in the $35 pledge would get the following:
1) Red Capta (1)
2) Suction cup mount (1)
3) PU multi-purpose sticky pad (1)
We apologize for the omission and are glad to send you this message to correct it. We will contact Kickstarter to see if they can amend it and if not this will serve as a paper trail for us all. Thanks again for your pledge. Please keep spreading the word and have a great day. Cheers!!
Thanks also for the question. Primarily Capta is basically a tripod stand that is also a fantastic gps car stand and many many other uses. It transitions very well into different environments. We are very proud of Capta.
One of our main concerns was exposure to the climate especially heat. So when we decided to use this material we made sure it could withstand both extremes. Manufacturers testing show a test range of -10f to about 230f where the material will perform optimally. So to answer your question Capta is not affected by being in the sun during the summer months. Its keeps performing as advertised. Thanks as always and please keep spreading the word for us. We will add this to the FAQ. Cheers!!
Thank you for your question. We have finalized our shipping costs and arrangements and they apply to all pledges. They are as follows:
Shipping to US destinations = FREE
Shipping to Canada/Mexico = $10
Shipping to international destinations = $15
Please adjust your pledges as it applies to your destinations.
Thank you again.
Thank you very much for your question - Capta works with any generation iphone (Iphone 4s, Iphone 4, iPhone 3, iPhone 3gs and iPhone 2) and if you look at our updates specifically #12 you will see a demonstration with Iphone4 and Iphone3g. Thanks again for your question and we hope you will help make Capta a reality. Cheers!!
Thank you very much for your question - Capta works with both phones (they have the same slightly textured back) and if you look at our updates specifically #13 you will see a demonstration with Galaxy SII. Thanks again for your question and we hope you will help make Capta a reality. Cheers!!
Thank you very much for your question - We appreciate it. The $60 pledge is for a limited edition black Capta with green print and a green pad - a homage to our kickstarter backers. This is only available during this campaign and we will not produce anymore in the future. It is more expensive because of the manufacturing costs associated with creating it. The black color is more expensive than natural silver, the green color and prints as more than the regular and the pad is a different more expensive color than the black color. We will only be making a small number of this and manufacturing gets less expensive with larger quantities - so most companies shy away from small orders like the limited edition black. So when you factor all these costs into the equation it will make it significantly more expensive than the silver and the red. We hope you will support us and find the best pledge for you. Cheers!!
