Our campaign is end, you can still order CASE Remote on our official website:
As many indiegogoers request, we are starting this follow-up campaign. The purpose of this campaign is to give many of you who missed out on the first one the chance to hop in, and to give original backers a way to add funds for shipping or choose additional perks. You can find our great successful campaign here, more than 400 backers supported us! This is our first round campaign video:
Now it is the last chance to enjoy the great deal of CASE. The new version of CASE has been greatly upgraded! Also, we changed the name of CASE to CASE Remote!!! We will only send CASE Remote Kit to all backers, do not worry.
However, we still feel not good to let all first round backers wait for Aug 30 delivering. We made a very very tough decision:
CASE Remote will be online sale in September after second round indiegogo campaign. There will be two types of products: CASE Remote basic package ($99 as promised) and CASE Remote kit package ($129). We decided to ship all backers in the two round indiegogo campaign with CASE Remote kit package. We hope this decision can make everyone's waiting worthwhile
CASE Remote is a solid product. We have demonstrated this with our prototype. We also finished most of mass production. So the risk of this campaign is very low.

What are Others Talking about CASE
Glenn Buys, our first distributor who contributed $10,000 in the first round indiegogo campaign, has visited our team:
"Here’s a neat idea aiming to bridge the gap between older generation technology and today’s ubiquitous touchscreen smartphones. CASE Remote is a wireless remote controller for DSLR cameras which links to an Android or iOS smartphone, allowing the camera kit to be controlled via a mobile app"
--- Tech Crunch
"CASE Remote: smartphone remote for your DSLR"---DP Review
"sometimes, lugging around and controlling that massive camera can be a pain in the neck, especially when you’re trying to get a rather difficult shot. CASE Remote wants to help solve that problem by turning your Android device into a wireless remote controller for your DSLR"---Android Community
"CASE Remote brings smartphone convenience to your DSLR"---Stuff
"Offering remote live view, touch focus, full control over camera settings, time-lapse photography and wireless file transfer; the new CASE is a 2"x2" device that slots into your camera's hot-shoe."---Photography Blog

Who Are We
Our team is a group of young and innovative people that hold the full patent rights to CASE Remote technology. We have won awards in the Liaoning Province Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition. Our team features experts in different fields with international education background in the USA, Italy, and China.
All of our team members love photography, and we want to make photography much easier. That’s why we create CASE Remote. We want to share this wonderful tool with all photographers, and make it as cheap as possible. Indiegogo community has supported so many great projects. Unlike many big companies, we don't have huge funds to invest. Thanks to our hard working technique developers, we have used the limited funds to finish this CASE prototype. However, we are running out of money and cannot massive produce CASE Remote for photographers. With more backers’ help, we can decrease the cost further and move faster to release CASE Remote. For this reason, we hope to build a popular campaign and spread this wonderful device all over the world.
Be the first to get a CASE Remote.
Start enjoying easy photography.
Your contribution will not only help us, but also decrease the price of CASE Remote to help all others who love this smart device.
CASE Remote developing timeline:
Risks and Challenges
CASE Remote is a solid product. We have demonstrated this with our prototype. However, as with all crowd-funding campaigns, there are risks and challenges:
(a) Fewer units sold
We are confident with CASE Remote. CASE Remote campaign has been great successful in its first round. But as what we claimed, this project motivation is our interest. We did not plan to earn money from this campaign, we just want to promote our CASE brand. That's why we offer so great deal! And we will keep working on it to bring more fancy CASE series products to this community. We believe we will have better future. CASE Remote is a wonderful device for photographers, and Cheering Tech is a trustworthy team.
(b) Supply and production
We have some resources here to support mass production. The production is almost done. We will try our best to make it happen as soon as possible.
We cannot control what will happen during the delivery. We will choose trustworthy shipping company like UPS, FedEx, DHL etc. However, there is still no guarantee that this will work in your country (most country will be no problem).
Unfortunately，CASE Remote doesn't work stably with most of Sony and Panasonic cameras. We will continue to update FAQ
- What are the shipping costs?
It is free shipping for China mainland, Hong kong, Taiwan, Macau. $15 for shipping outside China.
- When can I receive my CASE Remote?
We will start to deliver CASE Remote on August 30, 2014 (Maybe earlier). We will start deliver CASE Remote in September after the second batch fabrication. And you can download the IOS and Android CASE App on Apple Store and Google Play for free.
- Can I choose any other colors?
Now we only provide black and white CASE Remote. We will provide more colors if a lot of supports request.
- Can I use multiple smart devices with my CASE Remote?
Yes. One CASE can be controlled by multiple Android and IOS devices.
- Is the hot shoe adapter included in the CASE Remote Kit package?
Yes, of course. A strap wire is also included, so you can choose different attach methods to attach CASE Remote to your camera.
- Does CASE support Sony and Panasonic cameras?
Unfortunately，CASE Remote doesn't work stably with most of Sony and Panasonic cameras. Please check with us for more details.
- Is Canon's zoom feature in live view to pull critical focus?
Of course, CASE Remote can provide zoom feature in live view mode, that's very important feature of CASE App.
- What's the difference between CASE and CASE Remote?
CASE is the old name. We changed CASE name to CASE Remote. It is just a name change, nothing to do with the product development.
- What's the difference between CASE Remote basic package and CASE Remote kit package?
CASE Remote basic package can only have one CASE Remote. There is no any accessories, like mini USB charge cable, hot shoe adapter, strap wire etc. But we will provide the accessory list for you to use CASE Remote, since most of people have some electronic devices with these standard accessories. However, CASE Remote kit can have all these accessories.
