Deal Of The Day: 38% On iZZi Slim, The 4 Lens-In-One Ultimate Photo Kit

redesign_izzi_mf

The slow death of the point-and-shoot in favour of the convenience of the cellphone camera means that a vibrant ecosystem of accessories always seems welcoming to yet another entrant. You’ve seen the detachable iPhone lenses that allow you to take macro, fisheye, macro and wide-angle shots, but you’ve likely not often seen them done in the way that iZZi Slim does it. This iPhone 5/5S case features a rotating wheel with lenses attached, which means you can quickly switch from one lens to another. This is convenient, because you don’t have to fish around your accessory bag while the shot you want to take vanishes. The lenses are a Fisheye lens, a 2x Telephoto Lens, a Macro Lens, and a Wide-Angle Lens. Normally costing $155, it’s $95 today.

redesign_lenskit_mf

While not quite as decked out as last month’s giant lens kit, this three-lens collection will still expand your phone’s photographing capabilities way beyond stock. Each lens attaches to your device via a magnetic mount that you stick on your device. It’s a slim ring that’s barely noticeable, and which allows you to quickly change between lenses. You get a macro, a wide-angle, and a fisheye lens. And while you’d normally pay $69, after today’s rebate you’re looking at $24.99.

Sony To Launch Innovative Lens-Cameras

sonyqx10

Another camera? Yawn, right? Well, not quite. We’re actually really intrigued by the rumored DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 from Sony. These are not cameras, at least not complete ones. They’re meant to be attached to a smartphone (iOS or Android), and operated through the on-screen buttons, but the “cameras” lack a display, even a shutter. What they do have is “a sensor, processor, zoom lens, WiFi connectivity and an SD card slot.” Not just any sensor and lens, mind you, but the vaunted 1 inch RX100 Mark II sensor and Carl Zeiss lens in the DSC-QX10. The QX100 will get a “larger 10x focal range and a 1/2.3-inch 18-megapixel CMOS sensor.” So yeah, you might be able to squeeze some pretty high quality shots from your phone… but really it’s not your phone anymore, now is it? Granted it’s not a full fledged dSLR either, so an argument could be made for portability. But these are crossover products and these can be hit or miss. The DSC-QX10 and QX100 are expected to be officially announced on September 4, for an as-yet-unknown price.

HiLo Lens Is A Creep’s Best Friend

Want to take a pic of that cute girl sitting next to you, but don’t want her to notice? Yeah… don’t. It’s creepy. But if you’re going to do it anyway, the HiLo Lens can help you avoid detection a lot better than whatever subtle techniques you think you might have developed. It’s an iPhone lens attachment that swivels and allows you to take right-angle pictures, meaning you can hold your phone in your hands like you’re texting, but in fact you’re shooting stuff to your left (or right… or even up). It features superior optics so there’s no image degradation and you do capture the entire field of view.

Now please, for the sake of decency, don’t be taking creepshots, ok? To be fair, the HiLo was created with the intention of giving you more freedom to shoot from interesting angles. And like a lot of tech, we like it in principle. It’s really all about how it’s used. It’s $60 with a pledge on Kickstarter. The campaign is not fully funded, but if it reaches its goal, shipping is scheduled for February 2013.

Stow-Away Lens Cap Holder Is Convenient

Being out taking pictures is fun, but there’s always the pesky problem of the lens cap. What do you do with it? Let it dangle from a string? Gets in your way. Put it in a pocket? That’ll be fun when you sit. Forget to bring it? Scrat-ahoy, matey! No, what you need is the Stow-Away Lens Cap Holder. This plastic accessory attaches to the underside of a dSLR and accommodates lenses in 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, 62mm, 67mm, and 72mm sizes. Its graduated design means you just have to push the lens in, and it’ll click in place right where it belongs, without you even having to look. It’s simple, and convenient and at $14 on pre-order, a no-brainer. This is a project on Kickstarter, but they’re almost fully funded, so if you pledge now, you’re promised a December ship date.

Gizmon’s Clip-On iPhone Lenses Are Simple

By David Ponce

We often talk about lenses that you can add to your iPhone camera to extend its usefulness. There is the case with the polarizing lens. Then there’s the case with the dial that looks weird and unwieldy. And let’s not forget the SLR lens attachment. But what most of these have in common is their general bulk. Gizmon’s solution is a lot simpler and smaller. They’re clip-ons that fit perfectly over the camera on an iPhone 4 and 4S, and give you fisheye, circular polarizer and 3 image mirage filter. When done, just pull them right off and stuff them in your pocket. They’re $35 each and are available now.
