LIGHTNING RELEASES (02/03/2014) – iZZi Gadgets, makers of the award-winning Orbit Pro and iZZi Slim featuring an interchangeable camera lens solution for the iPhone, are the proud owners of four (4) patents competing with Apple’s recent announcement securing two (2) patents for interchangeable camera lenses for their iPhone.
To date, four international patent offices have granted iZZi Gadgets with design patents over the last fourteen months in reference to mobile phone cases incorporating a camera lens. More specifically, the four patents are as follows:
1. Japan Design Patent Registration No. : 1474480
(Granted: June 14, 2013)
2. China Design Patent Registration No. : ZL201230589394.0
(Granted: May 8, 2013)
3. Europe Design Patent Registration No. : 2143743
(Granted: November 28, 2012)
4. Canada Design Patent Registration No. : 148,628
(Granted: December 12, 2013)
“As a result of years of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears, we’ve developed state-of-the-art, proprietary peripheral motion lock technology that we’re extremely proud of. In response to the events last week with Apple being granted two patents for interchangeable iPhone camera lenses, we wanted to acknowledge our four patents to date,” said Jayson Guzman, Founder of iZZi Gadgets. “Perhaps more importantly, as of December 2013, the United States Patent office has allowed us the rights for a similar design patent here in the U.S., and as a formality we are simply awaiting their final approval.”
The new iZZi Slim – the more affordable, portable little brother to the popular Orbit Pro was unveiled earlier this month at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, and received major accolades at the event. Available now for pre-order, the iZZi Slim was awarded a “Best of CES 2014” Award from iPhone Life Magazine, and has been featured by numerous news outlets including CNET, USA Today, New York Times, the Today Show and more.
While the original Orbit Pro is made of aluminum, the new iZZi Slim is made out of polycarbonate, making it more lightweight and easier for the user to carry. The Slim’s durable casing works with the iPhone 5/5s, offering quality protection in a vibrant black or white case. Constructed with iZZi’s peripheral motion lock technology, the Slim gives the photographer instant access to five (5) pro-grade lenses in a convenient, all-in-one unit.
Lens features include:
– 180-degree fisheye lens, perfect for panoramic style, overhead event & group shots.
– 2X Telephoto lens, great for capturing photos at a distance, like a surfer catching an epic wave.
– 0.67X Wide-angle lens, to make sure nothing and no one gets cut from your photos.
– Macro lens (which is revealed by twisting off the wide-angle lens), perfect for getting up close & personal with your subject to highlight every little detail.
– ***Plus, you’ll still have access to your iPhone’s native camera.
The Slim allows full accessibility to your iPhone’s headphones & charger jacks, power button, speakers, native camera and volume controls. Also included with the purchase of the iZZi Slim are protective lens covers and a microfiber cleaning cloth.
