ProDot

Custom SLR, a design company creating performance products that improve the shooting experience for photographers, today announced the general availability of its latest product, the Custom SLR ProDot.

A textured, press-on dot, the ProDot easily adheres to a range of surfaces to provide more finite control and vibration dampening. While initially designed to be placed on top of a camera shutter button to offer photographers a more seamless shutter-release, free of residual vibrations, the ProDot is a remarkably-simple and convenient accessory for virtually any push-button experience. Today’s announcement follows the close of the company’s latest Kickstarter campaign in which the ProDot vastly out performed its stated goal by more than tripling its funding target.

Photographers have long sought more precision and control from their DSLR’s shutter-release, and the ProDot’s textured surface and raised button-padding allow for a more ergonomic feel and an instant improvement to that most critical engagement point, the shutter button. Despite this original design intent, the scope of use for the ProDot extends far beyond the photography market, as the opportunities for this simple adhesive dot are virtually limitless. For instance, any regular user of a computer mouse, from graphic designers to journalists, can attach a ProDot to their mouse for more reflexive clicks requiring less force, while heightening control and reducing the impact of repetitive stresses. Consumer electronics and video game enthusiasts will find their finite control enhanced with a ProDot’s no-slip grip and welcomed finger cushioning adhered to their controllers.

“At Custom SLR, we are photographers who strive to improve the shooting experience for other photographers. Initially, we had this very audience in mind for the ProDot, but quickly realized that its use can be extended to a multitude of applications, such as videography, sports and numerous finger-controlled devices,” said Ivan Wong, Chief Operations Officer, Custom SLR. “The emphatic response from the Kickstarter community has not only enabled us to bring the product to market, but has proven that there is a demand for such a dynamic little accessory.”

Available in low-profile black, high-visibility red, and clear colorface the ProDot is sold in packages of two for $9.95.

Brought to market through crowd sourcing site Kickstarter, the ProDot successfully surpassed its fundraising goal in a mere three days. To purchase a set of ProDots, please visit the Custom SLR website.

Great idea. It makes total sense since the shutter button is hard plastic and often hard to depress. Especially so for those with big fingers.
