About this project
Previously, we launched the Foldio projects to create a portable studio that allows anyone to take high quality photos. Thanks to your support, we successfully funded and delivered Foldio1 & Foldio2 to our backers..
From 3 years of experience creating the Foldio studio, we’ve learned that we have a lot of room for improvement. Now we are going to introduce our third Foldio project, the Foldio3 that’s upgraded immensely from our previous projects.
Keeping it simple
To improve the Foldio, we pondered on what the most important feature for our new project should be. We concluded that the portable studio should be uncomplicated and easy to use.
That is why we tried to make the Foldio a simple and neat tool for everyone, whether you are carrying it, using it or just keeping it at home.

Bigger, but more compact design
Current photo studios of similar size are designed to fold as a square shape. Because of this, they are difficult to carry around or store in a neat and compact way.To overcome this issue, we created a new design for the Foldio3.
This design enables the Foldio3 to be compact when folded up whereas when it is opened, it transforms dramatically into a 25 inch x 25 inch studio.
Like our previous Foldio series, we applied the magnetic structure to Foldio3. This enables the setup to be in 10 sec. Not to mention that we use high quality magnets to hold the Foldio3 in a sturdy shape for extensive use.
Simple backdrop set up
If you have any experience using mini studios, you will know that it’s really cumbersome to fix the backdrop. This gets worse for bigger sized photo studios.
We designed a new way to fix the backdrop in a simple and easy way. You can just attach the backdrop at the bottom part of Foldio3 and unroll it up to fix at the top side.
High quality black backdrop
Foldio3's black backdrop enables you to take higher quality pictures compared to when you are using other black backdrops . With our backdrop, you will have a clear black color without any reflection on the background.
Upgraded lighting design
High performance triple diffuser LED device applied.
We focused on maximizing the lighting performance by upgrading functions of our lights and adjusting the location. As a result, it's designed to decrease shadows of subjects more efficiently than our previous Foldio versions.
The Halo Bar
We created the “Halo Bar” to enhance your photography experience. Now create more amazing photos using the Halo bars.
The Halo bar is attachable, so you can fix the Halo bar on the side or bottom magnet spots of Foldio3 according to your needs. Set up the perfect lighting using the Halo bars.
Make better lighting conditions combining the Halo bar lights with the main lights of the Foldio3.
Or you can use the Halo bars separately to create a different atmosphere.
Now you can control lighting of the Foldio3 by using the Dimming controller. This device lets you control all the lights of the Foldio3 and Halo bars in a simple way.
Create 360 image with Foldio360
You can create 360 images using the Foldio3 and the Foldio360 together. For objects that were a little too big for the Foldio2, the Foldio3 is the perfect match with the Foldio360 smart turntable. The Foldio3 widens the use of the Foldio360 for photographers, small business owners, bloggers, online sellers and many more. (More information about Foldio360)
Foldio3 helps you take high quality photos for bigger subjects in an easier way. Now, start creating amazing work with Foldio3.
We are a creative, dedicated team with members in California, and Seoul. Our passion is finding new ways to harness and improve upon smartphone technology. So far, we have done this with three highly successful Kickstarter projects, the Foldio, Foldio 2 and Foldio360. We hope to empower photographers everywhere with simple, useful, and cost effective tools can be used everyday for business or hobby. We thank you for supporting our new project.
Risks and challenges
After several successfully funding and delivering previous Kickstarter projects, we’ve realized how important it is to recognize and reduce the risks that come with creating new products.
Fortunately, our team has experience in delivering successful Kickstarter products. For this new project, we have spent months developing the prototype and working with our partner manufacturer to ensure that production and delivery goes smoothly once this fundraiser is completed. If anything comes up, we will solve it quickly and efficiently as we have always done.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
