The new iPhone RIG

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts on the movie by Detention Films called the『Uneasy Lies The Mind』. This movie was shot entirely on the iPhone. To elaborate, this movie was shot using our iPhone 5/5s SLR Jacket. We had received a message from Ricky Forsheim of Detention Films that the shoot was finished and…

Bracket for Sony QX10、QX100 (Concept Design)

When Sony released the QX10 and the QX100, I thought it was a very “Sony” product. Due to it’s small size and the time it takes to connect it to smartphone, i find myself fiddling to get it to work instead of actually shooting with it. Perhaps that why I hardly see anyone talk about…

  We have made quite a few Turtleback branded products, namely the TurtleJacket. A lot has gone into designing and manufacturing these products. It has been, hard, but I’m sure the the team who have invested countless time and effort for it would agree with me that it has been an exciting learning experience for all of…

Soratama lens with iPhone: Test

Here is an interesting lens. Widely known as the “Soratama” lens created by Mr. Zenji Uehara is basically a clear see-through sphere placed at the middle of clear see-through plate. We’ve also used the custom macro lens used in our DOF adapter and aluminium tubes for stability. The result is a nice sturdy Soratama adapter…

QX10 Bracket for PentaEye.

Sony recently released the new lens cameras the QX10 and the QX100. We’ve decided to make a custom bracket to attach it to our PentaEye. Before you laugh at how ridiculous this looks, let me explain why this is a feasible solution for iPhone users. The lens on the iPhone 5s is quite wide. This…
