Share

I am thrilled to share with you some great new mobile photography lenses that you will find very interesting. ShiftCam, a global mobile photography gear company designed by photographers, for photographers, has announced that its ProLens range of professional smartphone lenses for the iPhone 11 series is available now.

For both professional and savvy enthusiasts, photographers today are increasingly switching between their trusty DSLR cameras and mobile photography. With ever-improving technology, the quality of mobile photography is catching up – but, whether using a digital camera or a mobile device, the resulting photographs are only as good as the lens used.

By developing professional grade detachable lenses for use with a mobile phone, ShiftCam is blurring the lines between DSLR and phone camera performance. Made from premium DSLR grade glass, ShiftCam has merged precision optics engineering and design to create something truly unique, bringing DSLR quality optics to mobile photography.

Combining the pocket-sized portability of a mobile phone and the high-quality of a DSLR camera, the ProLenses offer the ultimate in convenience and value, avoiding the need to carry a separate camera and all the extra gear whilst still producing high quality imagery professional photographers would expect.

Users can switch between different lenses in a split second to capture any moment with the perfect lens.

About ShiftCam

ShiftCam was founded with a mission to reinvent mobile photography, making it even more convenient, compact and comprehensive. Its aim is to enable the most seamless transition from smartphone to professional camera. The ability to take the perfect photo should be accessible to everyone and consumers should not have to be a professional photographer to capture precious memories in a creative way.

In 2017, ShiftCam created the World’s first MultiLens case for iPhone 7 & 8, with a shifting mechanism that allows users to get the most out of their dual camera feature. MultiLens cases followed for iPhone X and 11: with a simple slide-and-click motion, users shift seamlessly between Wide-Angle, Telephoto, Macro, Fisheye and Circular Polariser Filter lenses.

The ShiftCam ProLens expansion set takes mobile photography to a whole new level. Using the same slide-and-click S-Mount system as the MultiLens series, ProLenses can be mounted securely with 100% accuracy and zero effort, enabling users to shift between lenses in seconds to capture any moment with the perfect lens. Made from premium DSLR grade glass, ShiftCam has merged precision optics engineering and design to create something truly unique. The ProLens Series Includes a 12mm ultra-wide aspherical lens, 60mm telephoto lens, traditional and advanced long-range macro lenses and advanced fisheye lenses, bringing DSLR quality optics to mobile photography.

ShiftCam has been awarded CES Innovation Award Honoree in 2018 and 2020, and was a winner of the RedDot design award in 2018.
