I have created a product that’ll change the way Olympus Pen users use their camera. The one down side to an Olympus Pen camera is that you cannot use the flip down screen when it’s attached to a tripod. That’s a major down side for Bloggers and YouTubers who ideally, would like to be able to see themselves in the screen. There’s nothing worse than filming an entire video to watch it back and realise it’s all out of focus, that you had a fluffy piece of hair and that the items you were talking about weren’t even in shot. Talk about irritating!
I’ve never created a product before but with the help of my fiancé I was put in touch with people who could make my idea a reality. I specially measured it, made prototypes, tested materials and the function of it until I had our finished product. It was a long process but it was really enjoyable designing and then creating a product that solved a problem I had with my camera. It’s not often you can dream up a product and then have it physically in your hands within a few weeks.
I don’t want to toot my own horn too much but I do think this is a great invention. All Olympus Pen users will know the struggle of not being able to use the flip down screen on a tripod and now I don’t have that anymore. Filming a video is a dream and taking outfit shot has become ten times easier. Olympus Pen do have an iPhone app that has a live mode function so that you can see through your camera on your phone screen, but that doesn’t allow you to record. It’s also not practical to look down at your phone to make sure you’re in focus.
If you have an Olympus Pen camera and want the luxury of seeing yourself in the flip down screen click here and it’ll take you to my blog shop where you can purchase a selfie mount. You can also watch my video about the product on my YouTube channel here.
Please let me know what you think of this product in the comments. I’d really love some more feedback. Style Lobster said it was a genius product. That’s the ultimate feedback for me!
