Awesome Schneider Optics For Your iPhone 4

Share

The idea behind the iPro is not to offer you another camera, but enhance the one you already have. Your iPhone. The Fisheye and Wide Angle Lenses easily twist on and off and let you capture more in every shot. The pocket-sized lens case securely protects your lenses, doubles as a universal tripod mount, and also makes a comfortable handle. And the rugged iPhone case is specially engineered to effortlessly accept the lenses and tripod mount. Suddenly your iPhone’s even cooler than you thought it was.

All of the components of the iPro Lens System are designed to work together. Both the Wide Angle and the Fisheye Lenses use a bayonet mount to securely fasten onto the iPhone case. The iPhone case gives you the two options of attaching the handle on the left or right side of the iPhone. The handle itself safely stores your lenses and enables you to attach your iPhone to any tripod. The iPro Lens System is specifically designed for the iPhone 4.

Additional lenses, iPhone cases, or replacement parts available for separate purchase.

This kit, albeit not cheap will certainly help you take even more awesome iPhoneography images – it will set you back $199 and you can preorder it here, ready for shipping mid October.

Wide Angle Lens

Twist on the Wide Angle Lens and change your whole perspective. This lens provides a 35% wider field of view with minimal distortion and edge-to-edge sharpness. It doesn’t matter if you’re at a crowded concert, in a small kitchen, or just trying to get everyone in the family photo, the Wide Angle will capture it.

Once you start taking photos with the Fisheye Lens, you may not want to stop. It’s distorted in all the right ways. Better than any app you can download, it alters your field of view to a spectacular 165°, making every shot both panoramic and dramatic.

The iPro Lenses were designed specifically for use on the iPhone 4, taking into account the characteristics of the lens and sensor.

Interesting article.
Raises 2 questions: first, will the kit work with the new 4S and its new camera? Also, what about movies, can we expect to enhance films taken with the iPhone too?
Given the price tag, I look forward to reading a review of the system !
