Have a question?
Hey., I have a few questions. Firstly, what would be the mAh of the external battery? Secondly would the final product be matt or glossy? And lastly, can the shutter be used in all camera apps or just the ones you guys make? Anyway its a really good product and I hope this can be placed in more websites such as Macrumors, 9to5Mac and redmondpie.. I hope this works out!!
I think you need to get the word out on your project more...
I am seeing a lot more posts about the 'Red button' unit and I feel yours is better all around... I really want to see yours make its goal.
Awesome Project and very quick response to question about white iphone4 compat! You just got another backer! I was pondering this just a few days ago, glad I saw your project!
@ Jason Wright.. I also have a film on my iPhone and it slides in perfectly, so you shouldn't have any issues with the fitment using the film on the front or back. Thanks for your support!!
Hey, I have a thin film on all sides of my iPhone. It's less than 1mm in total width, but could this cause an issue with the fit of the iShuttr? I don't want my iphone completely bare, but the iShuttr case does seem pretty snug... In any case, GREAT idea!
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.
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?
