Snapzoom Turns Your Binoculars into the Ultimate Smartphone Lens
Got an old pair of binocs from your opera-going days? Okay, from your bird-watching days? No? How about from randomly buying them at a flea market six months ago? Our latest Kickstarter find, Snapzoom, will help you turn them into the fanciest smartphone lens we’ve ever seen.
A project by Daniel Fujikake and Mac Nguyen of HI Resolution Enterprises, Snapzoom is the first universal smartphone adapter that turns ordinary binoculars into super telephoto lenses. It can even attach a telescope to your smartphone instead of a telephoto lens.
Snapzoom also makes pretty incredible video footage – we love this short video of the gorgeous Golden Gate Bridge.
All in all, we dig the idea of buying an adapter instead of a crazy telephoto lens, especially when we’re dealing with phoneography. A Kickstarter pledge of $70 will get you your very own Snapzoom, expected to ship in September 2013. Go for $90 and get a pair of binoculars as well. Awesome!
