Kickstarter pioneered a set of rules and an uncluttered visual grammar that has become the familiar frame for online fundraising, and many other such crowdfunding portals have since copied or adapted their formula -- even sites that started earlier.

iOgrapher Mobile Media Case

iOgrapher Mobile Media Case | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

by Cassandra Khaw (TechHive)

"Teacher Dave Basulto knows first hand what shrinking budgets can mean to school arts programs. His solution? Pair an inexpensive iPad mini with theiOgrapher (funding through April 13), a mounting system he’s developed for Apple’s tiny tablet.

"The iOgrapher is a rigid plastic molding sporting wide, loopy handles intended to facilitate steadier operation of your device. Three accessory shoes, allowing you to attach equipment like lights or microphones, sit on the upper ridge. An attachment point placed underneath the iOgrapher enables you to mount the assemblage on various tripods, stands, and dollies. And a 37mm lens mount will let you add different lenses.

"Basulto plans to lunach a companion site, iOgrapherU.com, alongside the mount with tutorials for both the iPad and his creation, as well as related apps, workflow techniques, editing, and other information helpful for those engaged in audio/visual media production. Only those who’ve purchased an iOgrapher or one of Basulto’s other planned products will be granted access."

I have no connection with this brand new company, founded by teacher Dave Basulto, but boy do I wish I did!

This is a fabulous concept and looks like a dynamite product. The website says the base frame unit will start shipping on Sept. 13, 2013 and cost just $65. The Accessories page suggests lenses, lights, microphones, and tripods. Excluding the cost of the iPad Mini, users can equip themselves with a very functional video-making kit for less than $300 (including a bunch of great apps).
