Presenting The iFilm, A revolutionary iPhone Camera Enhancement

Problem: Traditional tripods are bulky and hard to use. You have to connect the iPhone onto an attachment, then screw that attachment onto the tripod. Bringing your tripod means carrying around an obscure object, but forgetting it means sacrificing those times when you really wish you had brought it. 

Solution: So I invented something compact and functional. The iFilm. It will revolutionize the way you use your iPhone camera. Unlike tripods, the iFilm is compact and less expensive than traditional mounts. 

Pitch: Imagine if you could turn any surface into your own tripod mount. Enter the iFilm. This device attaches to your iPhone and allows you record high quality video and stunning pictures, in a way never seen before. 

How it Works

The iFilm has three different settings. A setting for use on a flat surface, one for hanging off the edge of that surface, and one on its side. These dynamic settings allow you to change the direction of the camera seamlessly getting everything you want in your shot, and none of what you don't. 

The best part: The video taken is completely stable and uses the simple physics of reflection. 

Imagine the uses

Take a timed photo from a far, without any assistance.

Record a time lapse video with perfect stability.

Add a dashboard camera to your car.

Record lectures in a classroom.

Prank your friends with your secret camera in tow.

Record, share your sweet dance moves (and keep the bad moves to yourself). 

and more.

Thanks for your time!

FAQ

  • The mirror does in fact reverse the picture or video you capture (unless you use it in the landscape setting).

    We have developed an iPhone Application that will be released for free on the App Store once the project is fully funded.

    (thanks alconn for the question!)

  • What a great question. We started with the iPhone because we thought the potential interest pool would be greater. Hopefully this project will hit the ground running and we can expand to a myriad of other devices including the iPad and Android Phones.

    (Thanks for the question, Don Canaan!)
