Will.i.am Unveils iPhone Camera Accessory With Keyboard

Posted November 28, 2012 at 5:22pm by iClarified
Will.i.am has unveiled a new camera accessory for the iPhone that features interchangeable lenses and a sliding keyboard, reports The Telegraph.

Under the brand foto.sosho, the models have interchangeable lenses and a built-in flash, with photo editing, filters and sharing also built in. Versions for the iPhone 4 will be available from 6 December, but an iPhone 5 model, which replaces the entire iPhone camera with a new sensor an flash, will not ship until next year.

The new devices will compete with software-based solutions such as Instagram as well as other camera accessories that add lenses to the iPhone. The new device, however, “fits over your iPhone unit so you only need to carry one device”, i.am+ said. A total of four models will include standard, fish-eye, wide and zoom lenses, with contemporary and vintage models for iPhone 4 and 5 respectively called C.4 and V.4 and C.5 and V.5.



The accessory will also feature a companion app to set shooting modes, apply filters, control the flash, and share photos.

The i.am+ C.4 unit “Modern Look” will sell for £199, while the white V.4 model with gold trim and a “Vintage Look” will sell for £299. They are available exclusively from London's Selfridges.

Honestly I love it and want it . Instead of getting a prefessional camera you can just get this and it's a case for your phone Annndd it's a keyboard I love it and think its a good Idea .

So tacky. Just use the original iPhone camera. And if you want a hq pic just get a eyefi sd card and transfer any pic to your iPhone instantly from any sd camera like a dslr or p

Will.i.am mental process.."Hmmm nobody is going to buy a hugely profit margined scent from me so let me make a dumb, bling looking add on to the massively successful iPhone and make a boast load of cash that way." Its all about money for his pocket and nothing else on this thing.
