About this project
If you missed ordering your olloclip, you can sign-up for the pre-order email list at olloclip.com or bookmark the site for future updates. We should have our webstore up and running in a couple of weeks, at which point you'll be able to order online; and of course you can also 'follow-us' on Facebook and Twitter.
UPDATE: Thanks to your support we are pleased to announce that the olloclip has successfully funded and we are now entering the production stage. If you backed or plan to back this project your olloclip will ship around the end of June. Continue to tweet, Facebook post and email your friends that they can still order the olloclip for the next two weeks, securing a great discount and not waiting until late summer for delivery (Kickstarters will get the first production units). The olloclip will eventually retail for $60 or more by the time it hits the shelves for the fall and holiday shopping season. If you wish to purchase multiple olloclips just pledge in multiple increments.
Hello Kickstarters! Thanks for having a look at our project. We are very excited about the olloclip and we hope you can help make it a reality.
olloclip, a simple and elegant solution to a problem that has until today not been solved, “how do I get extra lenses on my iPhone?”
The olloclip is a quick-connect lens solution for the iPhone 4 that includes a fisheye, wide-angle and macro lenses in one small, convenient package that easily fits in your pocket. Nestled in the palm of your hand, the olloclip connects to the iPhone within 2 seconds so you’ll be sure to capture the image you want…if you don’t see the picture you’re looking for just flip it over to switch the lens.
The fisheye creates about a 180 Degree field-of-view while the wide-angle is around double the normal view and the macro up to 10X. If you’re looking for that special macro shot, just unscrew the top of the wide-angle lens to reveal the macro lens underneath. Sure, there are apps available that will apply a fisheye “look” or vignette to an image, but it’s impossible to increase the field of view of the original image with any app…what you see is what you get, and we’re confident that once you see what a real fisheye lens can do you will be amazed.
Both an elegant design as well as complementary to the iPhone we believe the Kickstarter community will love this project. Everyone who has seen the rapid-prototypes in action inevitably asks, “when can I buy one?” and that is where the Kickstarter Community comes in.
Manufacturing is an expensive proposition; one that requires complicated tooling and expensive setup fees. If you pledge at least $45 you will be pre-ordering an olloclip. If you pledge $90, you and friend can each have an olloclip. While the design is finished and the factory is ready to go, we will be working around the clock to get these out in record time. We anticipate shipping the first olloclip units in about 4 weeks or sooner once the project funds.
Thanks for being a part of a new era in iPhone photography…
