We can't believe it has been a year already!
It was one year ago today that you successfully funded the olloclip 3-in-1 iPhone lens system through Kickstarter, thanks to all of you for backing us and making the dream a reality. Fast forward 365 days, and olloclip is now sold in more than 90 countries and growing, and is available through top retailers such as Apple, Best Buy, Sprint and Bloomingdale’s. Other significant milestones include three office moves, WIRED’s Editor's Pick for “iPhone Lens”, and news features in top media outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Martha Stewart, Engadget and many others. Loyal fans include Kevin Systrom, CEO of Instagram, who said the olloclip is part of his "Go to Gear". You also have provided jobs for loads of people that wanted to work, that is very special in this economy and we are very proud of that.
We can’t say enough how thankful we are for the support the kickstarter community has given us and certainly have not forgotten our roots on this site. We’re still very passionate about the olloclip and are excited to continue to explore and promote future ways olloclip can play even more of a role in your photography.
We love seeing all of the amazing pictures that olloclip users around the world are posting on Instagram, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter and others. Please keep posting and tagging your pictures and videos #olloclip so we can find them. We even have a huge TV on the wall in our new office with a live feed of olloclip pictures so we can see them as they happen. We also have some other plans that will help to showcase your olloclip photos in the coming months.
2011 was the beginning for us, but in 2012 we’re confident that we’ll continue to excite our community of users with new products. We know our desire for quality and perfection will bring challenges, but we’re also sure that the final results will be what you have come to expect from us. We are excited by the things we have planned and can’t wait to show you guys when we are ready.
Thanks again for all your support and stay tuned!
Patrick & Chong
