Filters and Plastic

Hello Backers,

1500 filters are in and they look great! Another filter batch is due in a couple of weeks. Filters are no longer the gating item for the Camera Case.

The retail packaging has passed inspection and is ready for production.

The only item left before we can ship the Camera Case is tooling. We are expecting T5 parts (fifth parts from tooling) 9/7/12. If T5 passes inspection we are onto the final finishing and would expect to ship mid September. If T5 fails inspection, then we are onto T6 and would expect to ship late September.

We appreciate your continued support!

Joel and Scott

      @Brian, as expected we are working on an iPhone 5 version. Stay tuned. In the meantime we are in a understandable rush to finish our current iPhone 4 Camera Case.

    2. Creator Brian Herz on September 21, 2012

      Hey guys - Iphone 5 is out...any more updates!?

    3. Creator Scott Phillips and Joel Kamerman on September 21, 2012

      @Jeff, after the iPhone 4 Camera Case ships, we will manage special requests such as yours. Thank you for your continued patience.

    4. Creator Scott Phillips and Joel Kamerman on September 21, 2012

      @Bruce, we are working hard to ship the camera case ASAP. We are inspecting in China what we hope to be the final version next week. Thank you for your continued patience.

    5. Creator Scott Phillips and Joel Kamerman on September 21, 2012

      @Michela, if you have not done so, simply send us an email via kickstarter with your new address and we will ship the camera case there. Thank you.

    6. Creator Michela Frankel-Kenyota on September 20, 2012

      I have moved since I gave you my address for where to send the case. How do I change it? Thanks.

    7. Creator Bruce Barrett on September 19, 2012

      I am a backer and looking for an update.

    8. Creator Jeff Palacios on September 19, 2012

      I'd like this option also my iPhone 5 comes this Friday. I will longer own a 4. Will be willing to wait.

    9. Creator Jeff Palacios on September 19, 2012

      I'd like this option also my iPhone 5 comes this Friday. I will longer own a 4. Will be willing to wait.

    10. Creator Gail Tuthill on September 17, 2012

      Same here- my iPhone 5 is on order. Will backers be able to wait for the iPhone 5 case?

    11. Creator Scott Phillips and Joel Kamerman on September 13, 2012

      @Jessica, yes the iPhone 5 is due shortly and the current camera case is for the iPhone 4. We will be releasing an iPhone 5 case in the future. Our energy now is focussed on delivering the Camera Case at the end of this month or early October. Regarding special requests like switching orders to iPhone 5 Camera Cases, we will look into those requests once we are in production of the current case. If you have any questions, please email us directly.

    12. Creator Jessica Franco on September 13, 2012

      Yikes! The iphone 5 is out and this case won't work with it. I'm happy to not get an iphone 4 case and wait for an iphone 5 case. What are my options?

    13. Creator Scott Phillips and Joel Kamerman on September 13, 2012

      @Hamish Scott Wilson, we expect to ship all cases (US and International) at the end of September or early October. Regarding missing the $10 add on, we will handle this as we approach the delivery date along with other requests.

    14. Creator Scott Phillips and Joel Kamerman on September 13, 2012

      @Kim, we understand your frustration (and everyone else) and continue to press on to deliver the best case possible as soon as possible. Our focus is on delivering the Camera Case at the end of this month or early October and appreciate your patience.

    15. Creator Hamish Scott Wilson on September 13, 2012

      Hey guys. Looking forward to getting my camera case but just a question. There has been no mention of international buyers (I am in the UK) and what we can expect on delivery. Also I understood when I pledged that I would need to pay more for shipping ($10) but have not heard since how we do this...

    16. Creator KimMc on September 12, 2012

      We should be allowed to apply our purchase to the iPhone 5 case. I have ZERO USE for an iPhone 4 case now... I thought I'd have 2 months of use, but that wasn't the case, for this umm.. case.

    17. Creator Scott Phillips and Joel Kamerman on September 11, 2012

      @Brian, we expect to deliver the Camera Case near the end of September and will not be able to meet your scheduled stay in NYC. We appreciate your patience.

    18. Creator Brian Crum on September 11, 2012

      I'm still excited for the camera case, but I was REALLY hoping to use it while in NYC next week (flying out on the 19th). Is there ANY possibility of getting a case before then?

    19. Creator Scott Phillips and Joel Kamerman on September 7, 2012

      @Sean, we are also disappointed, but we are working hard to make the camera case experience as good as we can before we release. Regarding special requests, we are concentrating on delivering the iPhone 4 camera case and are not thinking about special requests. Once we ship the iPhone 4 Camera Case we will review options then.

    20. Creator Sean Frangella on September 7, 2012

      Somewhat disappointed I invested in this. I was excited initially, but it has been delayed so long that it seems it won't be shipped by the time the new iPhone 5 is released, which kind of takes the excitement out of a product that might be outdated at launch. Any plans to transition customers orders to a potential iPhone 5 case due to the delay?

    21. Creator Scott Phillips and Joel Kamerman on September 6, 2012

      @Ed - Please excuse the typo. We meant to say, when the camera case is available...

    22. Creator Scott Phillips and Joel Kamerman on September 6, 2012

      @Ed - The the camera case is available, I see no reason a will-call is not possible. Please email us with your phone number and email address and we will let you know.

    23. Creator Ed Hurtley on September 5, 2012

      Any chance for a local to pick up locally in Portland? (And possibly drop by a present.)

    24. Creator Jason Dietmeyer on September 4, 2012

      This has definitely taken a very long time. I remember getting an email saying they would hopefully ship in late July, then in early August, then in September sometime....will they ship before the iPhone 5 comes out? I'm sure I will be happy with the product, but I certainly hope that these will be done soon.

    25. Creator Jonathan Boehman on September 4, 2012

      Glad to hear that (re: the iPhone 5 update)!

    26. Creator Chuanwei Huang on September 4, 2012

      Hope it won't delay any more, iPhone 5 is coming soon, it will become harder and harder to sell iPhone 4/4S cases. (oh~ I am a reseller, not an end customer, so I think most resellers would worry about this)

    27. Creator Pam Stout Rieser on August 31, 2012

      Thanks for the update!

    28. Creator Scott Phillips and Joel Kamerman on August 31, 2012

      We will have an update regarding upgrades to an iPhone 5 Camera Case in this section after we get closer to shipping the current camera case.

    29. Creator Sarah fletcher on August 31, 2012

      Yes! It's very much delayed and as much as I've been excited and waiting for this...it's almost iPhone 5 time. Like in a couple weeks... !!??!

    30. Creator Kryptodrex on August 31, 2012

      ^ Agree with Richard.

    31. Creator Richard Sintchak on August 31, 2012

      This is starting to get very close the the iPhone 5 launch. Any possibility of a case for the 5 quickly coming behind this? Any chance we can forgo the 4 case and apply our backer funding to a 5 case instead? In a month or two this case will be useless to me...

    32. Creator Genna Newman on August 31, 2012

      My current case is on it's last leg so I hope everything goes well with production so it gets here before my current one kicks the bucket :)

    33. Creator Joe on August 31, 2012

      Is it possible if you guys can change my old shipping address to my new house address, I'm moving on Sept14.

    34. Creator Kryptodrex on August 31, 2012

      Hmm... It's getting close to the suspected new iPhone launch. :\
