We’re always interested to learn about innovative mobile photography projects and this one from Miggo sounds particuarly interesting. They’ve developed a product, called the Pictar Pro that bridges the gap between a phone’s power and camera’s usability with a wide set of physical controls and software features. The cherry on top is the phenomenal user experience: a pleasure-to-touch polished metal grip and an unmatched front-loaded intuitive user interface.
There’s a feature that particularly interests me, that’s the Pictar Pro Viewfinder. If you’re used to looking through camera viewfinders, or just find your smartphone screen too hard to see in bright light, then this could offer a great solution.
The Picture Pro has been designed to work with all smartphones, both Apple and Android, it’s an interesting concept. Their initial goal on Kickstarter was £19,074 but they have by far exceeded that with £142,135 pledged (at the time of writing) and with 36 days still to go.
