Very nice product and idea. The video is great and the fact that you have 70+ views in one day is very encouraging, I'd do even more videos. A marketing idea for you is to contact writers of popular photo blogs and send them a free one. If they review it you surely will generate sales plus you'll get back-links to your site which will help in search ranking. The site seems slightly sparse so I would include more with and without examples. Can you use it on products like for eBay sellers, that's a huge market. Another thing I'd recommend is offering a longer guarantee. You want to remove as many reasons as possible for people not to buy and you are almost never likely to see one returned if it's quality.

I like it, it looks really good. I have that same theme on one of my up-and coming muses! How easy was it to get paypal set up on wordpress? Is that just a text widget that you pasted into on the right sidebar? Looks good!

Sean - nice job on the product!
1) simple to manufacture given that it is foam and velcro
2) low-priced and not worth making yourself even if you (as a potential customer) think that you can
3) you have credibility because you are actually a pro photographer
4) nice use of video to demo the product.
I think you could sell it better on the main page by stating up front that you (as a pro photographer) invented this because you needed it, and didn't want anything bulky.
I think if you could re-shoot the video without your computer mess behid you it would look more professional, but not a big deal.
Overall I think you are off to a brilliant start. I love the simplicity.
Can you tell us all a few things to help us learn?
- how are you manufacturing (you don't have to give names, just describe what you went through)
- are you currently shipping these yourself manually?
- what was your thinking behind the price?
- Did you do any testing of the market size first?
Thanks a lot.

Some good replys here.
laniers mentioned about a longer gurantee, i propose going one stop further. if they are cheap to produce and you have full confidence in your product then why not offer a free 21 day no quibble refund?
Also would you mind telling us how you've automated and outsourced this business?

On my browser (Safari), you don't even see the movie until you scroll down. Seems unecessary, I would either move the video up or shorten the page.
