Cameras better watch out. iPhones already possess more optical capabilities than Apollo XII and it’s just getting crazier with all of the augmentations. I love that word. It’s like you’re pimping out your iPhone camera/fighting robot.
For example, check out the new Schneider Optics “iPro” line of optics. The whole thing is based around a sturdy aluminum case (or as I call it, armour) with a special bayonet fitting. The kit has three lens options: a fisheye lens for making trippy pics, a wide-angle for that epic cinema shot, and a 2x telephoto perfect for Facebook-ready headshots. It’s a great basic kit that should cover most of your shooting ranges and requirements, whether you’re shooting your MFA thesis or just strolling around the block.
The system costs $199 for the case, fisheye, and wide-angle lens. The telephoto will be available later in the year.
