Olloclip introduces Studio camera case & accessories for iPhone 6 & 6 Plus
Olloclip on Wednesday announced its new Studio accessory system, meant to enhance the use of its add-on lenses for iPhones, including a ruggedized case with kickstand and new mounts.
The core of the Studio system is the Studio Case, available in versions for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The case is needed to mount the other accessories, such as the finger grip, which is intended to provide more stable handheld shots but can double as an impromptu stand.
There is also a dedicated kickstand, and two 1/4-20 clips that can be used to attach third-party tripods and grips in portrait or landscape mode. "Cold-shoe" adapters can be used to equip flashes or microphones.
For the Studio line Olloclip is going back to Kickstarter to seek funding. Different contribution levels include different accessory bundles — $35 (plus shipping), for instance, includes only the Studio Case and the kickstand. $60 adds the 1/4-20 mounts, two cold shoes, and the finger grip.
A $110 package tosses in Olloclip's 4-in-1 lens, and still higher pledge tiers add more lenses.
Kickstarter prices are discounted from retail, and backers will be able to pick one of three color options selected earlier by survey. The Studio should ship by the end of September.
