Instead of shooting what’s directly infront of you, a Kickstarter project lets you make more use out of your iPhone camera. HiLO Lens is the first lens that turns your iPhone or iPad into a right angle camera.
It can be hard to get up close to the action when photographing children or pets, or when trying to capture the crowd at a concert. The right-angle design allows for different positioning of the phone to make better use of your camera. The lens sticks to your phone through sticky tape developed by 3M. Clean the sticky side with water and soap and it renews its stickiness each time.
Laying your iPhone on any flat surface turns that surface into a tripod. Use the accompanying app to set a timer for group shots or self portraits with an adjustable shutter delay.
The creators have raised $23,519 of their $27,500 goal with 11 days remaining. What creative ways would you use a right-angle lens? Let us know in the comments.
