Will.i.am has just introduced a new camera accessory for the iPhone 4S/4. Yeah that’s right. The Black Eyed Peas star has gone into the tech industry and is launching his first product. His new brand, “i.am+” will have the new horrible accessory ready by next year. It’s promising for photographers, but super
The Telegraph reports:
A companion iTunes app turns the hardware in to what the celebrity calls “a social photo experience”. It will also offer easy access for users to store In their individual i.am account.
As with other apps and accessories, on on-screen controls allow users to change shooting modes, apply real-time filters, control the in-built flash and edit pictures or add caption.
This accessory also gives you a slide out keyboard.
Here’s a brief description:
The first product from his new consumer electronics and app venture i.am+ is an accessory that clips onto an iPhone and transforms the eight megapixel smartphone camera into a 14 megapixel camera, which it is claimed dramatically enhances the clarity and definition of your photographs. Speaking exclusively to The Daily Telegraph, he says: ‘We have our own sensor and a better flash. You dock you phone into our device and it turns you smartphone into a genius-phone. We take over the camera.’
Do you think this is worth the money? Maybe at around $50-$60. Guess again, the premium “Vintage Look” gold version of his product will set you back £299 ($477)! But who needs gold right … You can still waste £199 ($318) on the black “Modern Look” version. I think I’ll pass on buying this.
