      Want to know another reason why I want the iShuttr to be a reality? I like the idea that it makes the iPhone look like a normal camera. I had three guys jump me on the streets of Chicago when I was taking photos on Michigan Avenue in broad daylight. As much as I love my bare iPhone, I adore the fact that a case like this can make my phone a bit less identifiable.

      Here's to making this a reality.

      Hello Jost,

      Thanks for backing the project! The zoom buttons are not related to the volume buttons at all, the volume buttons are on the other side of the case. The zoom and shutter release buttons communicate with the iPhone via the 30-pin connector on the bottom of the device. When the iPhone slides into the iShuttr case, it automatically mates with the case to make the connection. We've already spent a lot time thinking about the removable battery in the beginning of the project, it's a great idea and we'll probably incorporate that into future models, it's just too hard to implement in our first prototype. On another note, we are interested in adding a lens attachment to the iShuttr Camera Case, we loved this idea so much that we included it in our original patent paperwork. This is another idea that we've wanted to add since we came up with the project but we had to put it to the back burner because of prototyping reasons. So we're trying to figure out how we can add this feature for everyone here on Kickstarter.. If anyone knows anyone who is capable of making lens attachments, please let us know so we can further discuss the opportunity with them.

      I didn't understand, how you will make zoom keys, if you go not to the screen zoom. Or do you use the volume keys (I think apple doesn't allow this). But nonetheless itÄs a great idea with a bigger flash. May be you integrate in a later version also a removable battery for uploading the iphone?
