About this project
Our team set out to create an iPhone case with Integrated Charging, thin enough to be your every day case. We wanted optional features that allow Rapid Conversion to a Stable Pro Photo & Video Platform.
ZOpro Rapid Magnetic Lens Compatibility
We love the magnetic lenses. It really is amazing what you can do with them even as an amateur Photographer. Some of the best photos we have ever taken were taken on an iPhone. The only problem is those metal washers you have to stick on your phone. Problem Solved with the OZ system...
All of this with a simple "click"...
We kept it simple offering only two levels of rewards. ZOsolo is your every day case with the two most important features. ZOpro has everything in the ZOsolo package but also includes added features for Pro Photo & Video.
UPDATE: We have added a ZOpro olloclip + option. That option deletes the lenses and add's an additional olloclip compatible top case to your reward.
Both are amazingly affordable.
Getting ZOpro from Prototype into Your Hands
Planning is critical and we want to exceed your expectations. Our team has built and tested 9 prototypes so far for this project. Not using renders has definitely been more costly and time consuming but we now have months of field testing on multiple prototypes. We have also proven our charging system with several prototypes for both iPhone 4/4S and the iPhone 5.
Most of the video and photos have been shot with an iPhone 4S and the ZOpro system. It's been a great experience pushing the limits of iPhoneography with our new system and Charge-n-Sync has been there for us anytime the battery was low.
Our team is confident that ZO will change the way you capture the world and keep the battery full on your iPhone.

ZOpro: What is going on inside?
These are photos of the internals. We want to be as transparent as possible and make sure our backers understand how ZOpro works. Please keep in mind that these photos and the photos in the project are 3D printed prototypes. The materials used in 3D printing are no where near the rigidity of the final production so some of the thin areas are difficult to represent correctly at this phase of development. Please do not share these photos around the internet as some of the photos do not represent correct coloring and quality we want as first impression in our marketing efforts.
That being said, it's pretty amazing so check it out!
Risks and challenges
We Welcome Challenge.
Being fully aware of the challenges that we face bringing this project to you is part of the responsibility of taking it on. Our willingness is the result of our teams manufacturing experience in both Asia and North America with much more complex products. This is not our first rodeo.
It's obvious that we have a very aggressive schedule with some of the First Backer Rewards that are scheduled for Christmas Delivery. We intend to use credit to get production rolling and one of our team members will be stationed full time near the production facility right up until the time of shipment. Emails and phone calls don't cut it for this type of schedule.
The only technical aspect of our design is the charging system. We already have working prototypes for both the iPhone 4/4S and the more complex new iPhone 5 cable. Our requirements are much less complex compared to docking devices but we are aware that Apple MFI can cause production delays and our delivery dates have taken that into consideration.
We Start Now
Show us proof of market based on Backer Support and solid trending then we are off to the races. Waiting for a project to end and Amazon to transfer funds burns valuable time. Burning valuable time leads to excuses. So Support Our Project Today so we can Exceed Your Expectations!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Good Question. Between the time the project ends and the time we ship your ZO you will receive a survey about colors. Make sure you tell your friends about ZOpro because every 500 backers we get we will be adding a color that backers will choose through the survey!
