Okay, so we’re using the term “tripod” loosely. The name implies a stand with three legs, but, that’s not important. We were informed about this project a little while back and we’re very excited about it. As a photography enthusiast it can be pretty frustrating when I need to get a stable lowlight shot, or capture an awesome skyline when all I have is the iPhone. It’s always when I don’t have my tripod, meaning that I have no hope. Blurry cam doesn’t even begin to describe it. A tripod or stable foundation is an absolute must, especially if I’m trying to capture a time lapse. You just can’t do it without. That’s where ClearShot comes in.
It’s a credit card sized “tripod”, that you can keep in your wallet (or pocket) all the time. Despite being a slim piece of plastic, it’s pretty versatile. It can hold your iPhone in portrait or landscape, and keep its stability at a range of angles from 45 to 90 degrees. Perfect for FaceTime, recording your own vlog, videoing yourself breakdancing, taking time-delayed photographs or just using it as a stand for typing. It has so many uses, and yet it fits in your purse.
I genuinely hope this KickStarter project reaches its goal of $20k. If you want to get your hands on one of the first ones, be sure to head over to the KS page, and pledge. $15 is the minimum pledge if you want to get hold of one. We’re lucky enough to be featured on the page, and we should be receiving our “Big Deal” fully customized prototype very shortly, and I can’t wait to try it out.
