HOW IT CAME ABOUT

People take pictures with smartphones easily, but it’s difficult to get high quality pictures due to random lighting or background. 
In comparison, photo studio has background and lighting completely controlled, which results in high quality pictures. However, much time is needed to get the setting right, and the rental cost is quite hefty.

So we started to design a photo studio for smartphone. Simple, easy to use and portable studio for everyone.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Orange Monkie values trust between backers. This isn’t an option but a requirement as a kickstarter creator.

Just like our previous project, we will make sure the manufacturing and delivery be made on time. When we reach 100% of the funding goal, we will get right to the manufacturing process.

Foldio in the letter above is a prototype. We plan to enhance Foldio upon many meetings and feedbacks. Currently, we plan to change the logo printing at the top and the design of LED strips.

Foldio is our challenge towards photography using smartphones. We want to bring it to a whole new level. Please support us to let this possible.

Thank you Backers
