2017-05-16 | Updated rewards!
Thanks to our 602 amazing backers we are now 129% funded(Yay!). With regards to the increase in demands and promised shipping dates we had to limit some of the rewards. From now on the "KICKSTARTER DEAL", "DOUBLE DEAL" and "BUNDLE OF 10" have a limited number of backers to make sure we will deliver the TriLens on time. When they run out there's a new, unlimited reward that ships later this year, "NOVEMBER DEAL" for 100 USD (22% of MSRP).
So to get the TriLens as soon as possible and for the best deal, be sure to secure the limited offers before they run out.
As for our friends in the U.S, Germany, Korea and Japan. We are close to a solution and when we start shipping to your area we will make sure you'll get the same chance at scoring a great offer. We will keep you up to date when we have new information, it looks promising.
2017-05-07 | Updates on shipping for the Kickstarter campaign
We know we said worldwide shipping but unfortunately not for the Kickstarter campaign. And we want to have full transparency with you on why we changed our mind.
Before we even started to design the TriLens our patent attorneys did a so called FTO, freedom to operate search to make sure there wouldn't be any legal issues. There's been a patent that we've been aware of since day one and our attorneys have analyzed it thoroughly and they gave us the green light. Unfortunately we've been confronted with some unexpected resistance on this matter and now is not the time to start a war, our full focus is to get the TriLens into production and into the hands of our backers as soon as possible.
So for the Kickstarter we choose to only ship to those countries that we are 100% certain there aren't any legal obstacles. This unfortunately excludes the US, Japan, Korea and Germany. We will still ship to the rest of the world. We have one of Europe's largest IP-firms behind us and our attorneys are building the case as we speak so we are hoping to ship worldwide soon. But for the Kickstarter we are not willing to risk the money of our backers. They are meant to start the production.
We will give you updates on this matter as soon as we have new information, so stay tuned and we hope to resolve this as soon as possible.
For the rest of the world we have some good news. We have negotiated with our logistics partners and will be able to offer a reliable shipping option (4-8 days worldwide) for 225 SEK, that's approximately 25 USD no matter where you live. For our friends in Sweden the shipping will be 89 SEK and take 1-2 business days.
2017-05-05 | Why is the Trilens launching on Kickstarter?
Manufacturing the TriLens is a big investment, and rather than getting the funding from venture capitalists and banks we decided we wanted the photography community to Kickstart the production. This means that we can manufacture the TriLens the way it was intended, using our local suppliers in Sweden and focusing on reliability rather than low cost.
That's why we're launching the TriLens on Kickstarter, the largest platform for crowdfunding. When we launch the campaign you will have the chance to pre-order the TriLens for a really good deal and since we don't have to pay off any money people, the funding goes straight into the production. And if we don't reach our goal, you'll get your money back.
the 9th of May - 6pm GMT we will launch our Kickstarter campaign and it will be possible to place your pre-orders. In order to get the best deal possible and be included in the first shipments you have to be quick. So make sure you have your alarm set, we will do our best to keep you notified.
For those of you who already have a Kickstarter account can follow our profile here. By following us you'll be notified by Kickstarter as well when we launch the campaign.
2017-05-03 | The price of the TriLens has been announced!
We know you've been waiting. Thanks to your awesome support we are proud to say that we will manage to keep the production within Sweden while maintaining a really good offer. The 50 first backers on Kickstarter will get the TriLens for only 650 SEK, that's 75 USD and a saving of 42% from the retail price(129 USD). The rest of our backers will get an awesome deal as well, 85 USD for the next 150 backers and 95 USD for the remaining supporters. Thank you for your patience, please share the campaign and make sure you're ready when we launch in just 6 days!
