“The highest quality lenses to empower mobile picture takers everywhere to capture incredible images with their phones. ” Marc Barros
Have you ever wished you had the perfect lens to capture a special or hilarious moment? Do you sometimes think the shot you took was awesome until you uploaded it to your Picasa folder and found out it was a pixelated mess? Yes I have and, many times, I’ve wanted to call my smartphone company and give them hell. But I digress. This morning, I was surfing the net and enjoying an article posted on The Next Web. (TNW). It was about how the main weapon that would help a company win the smartphone/android war would have to be their ability to produce a great smartphone camera. I’ll concur and add … or the next best mobile option.
As I continued surfing on TNW, I came across another article, this one was called Exploring the greatest creative renaissance By Adam Benzion and it led me to a terrific innovation: Enter Stage Left, The Moment Lenses. Not so long ago, Marc Barros and his team of innovative entrepreneurs had a eureka moment; it was to find a way to make it possible for smartphone users to take awesome photos without the fuss of a huge lens or buying a new expensive phone. They came up with the idea of the Moment Lenses; portable, user friendly wide lens and telephoto lens that you could easily carry in your pocket and attach/use at will. When attached, the lens helps you take far superior shots than some of the lame photos we usually take.
Moment Lens Fundraising Project on KickStarter
Marc and team worked hard to bring this brilliant idea to life and, once they fine tuned their design, they created a Kickstarter page, on January 14th, to crowd-fund their project and help raise funds. It caught on like hot tamales and to date they’ve raised over $300,000. Yep, in less than a month they’ve inspired and motivated enough of us to contribute to the development of this great mobile phone gadget. They still need your support and will end the Kickstarter project on February 13th. Depending on the donation amount you give, you could get one of those lenses when they drop in June. So go check it out!
As I thought about the lenses, I flashed back to an incident that happened a couple of weeks ago… Want to learn more about why the Moment Lens above is a must have? See More Below
