About this project

Hello Kickstarters! We are thrilled to introduce the Custom SLR ProDot, a textured, press-on dot that easily adheres to the camera shutter button, which instantly makes the shutter more responsive and helps reduce camera shake and finger fatigue when capturing photos. Photographers are constantly in search of more precision and control from their DSLR’s shutter release, and the ProDot’s textured surface and raised button-padding will allow for a more ergonomic feel and an instant improvement to the most critical engagement point of the camera, its shutter button.
But the uses for the ProDot don’t stop there! Any push-button experience can find heightened control with the addition of this remarkably-simple and convenient accessory. The ProDot’s no-slip grip and finger cushioning will enhance the user experience for consumer electronic devices and video game enthusiasts, as well as users of computer mice, who will find RSI relief with less forceful clicks.
The Custom SLR ProDot will be available in low-profile black, high-visibility red, and clear color face. We are so grateful for your continued support, and look forward to bringing the ProDot to market. Spread the word, help us get “kickstarted,” and Feel the Difference™ with the ProDot!

What is the ProDot compatible with?
The ProDot fits most digital and film cameras that have a round shutter button. In addition, we have found it works well on computer mouses and other push-button devices that have a smooth surface.
How does it attach to the camera shutter button?
The ProDot attaches to most surfaces with a special 3M adhesive that is easy to apply. We have found that we can apply/re-apply the ProDot to several devices before the adhesive starts to lose its stickiness. The adhesive does not leave behind residue.
When will I receive the ProDots?
We hope to ship rewards out in the second half of December 2012. Updates will be provided on the current status of the production. They will ship from San Francisco, CA so shipping times may vary.
Why the funding?
The $3,500.00 funding goal is to help cover molding fees and R&D including helping us explore future applications and uses of the ProDot. Production will be done in China at a company that makes products like the IBM Trackpoints.
Who designed the ProDot?
The ProDot is designed by Ben Wong, who has also designed the revolutionary C-Loop strap mount, universal M-Plate and ergonomic Split Strap Technology.
Patents have been filed.

Risks and challenges
Thank you for supporting us on our 4th Kickstarter project. As with any project there are risk and challenges. Delays in production, QA and packaging are some potential setbacks. However, our goal is to keep communication open and be as transparent as possible through the entire process so backers will be up to date on the progress.
Backers will only be charged if we hit our funding goal. If and when we hit our funding target, we will start production immediately. The sooner we get funded, the earlier we can start production; which means we can start shipping out rewards faster. Again we thank you for everyone's support and believing in us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
