Snooperscope promises to give your smartphone or tablet night vision. The external camera/lens attaches to the front of your device and delivers images to it via the Snooperscope app, which is available for both Android and iOS.
Snooperscope puts out infrared radiation to illuminate objects shrouded in darkness, and it converts the reflected radiation into something you can see. Its developers even claim that can penetrate any opaque material that infrared rays can pass through, such as liquids, inks and textiles. While Snooperscope may be limited in its practical photography applications, it could be fun to experiment with the ghostly X-ray-like results.
Quebee is a tiny camera remote-controlled from your mobile device. You press a button to start recording and smartphone app serves as your dashboard, allowing you to capture video, timelapse or still images. The Quebee is capable of five hours of continuous full HD recording, or two days of recording in timelapse mode.
Quebees work better together, and developers are offering Quebee kits in both a two- and three-device version. Quebees' captures are uploaded to the cloud when the device is in range of a wi-fi network, and you’ll receive a notification on your phone when you're ready to start editing.
Michron is an intervalometer to assist in timelapse captures with your DSLR. While geared toward DSLR photography, your phone plays an integral role as the tool for programing Michron’s settings via an app available for both Android and iOS.
Michron is designed for both beginners and experienced photographers. You can set Michron to Auto, or delve into its more technical settings, finally compiling and editing your images into a timelapse video using the software of your choice.
The project has certainly piqued the interest of the Kickstarter community: with four days left in Michron's campaign it's already surpassed its original $40,000 goal by almost $130,000.
Foldio is a portable studio aimed at, but not limited to, smartphone product photography. At 10.2x10.2x10.2 inches, Foldio looks ideal for lighting and shooting small items you’d normally sell on eBay or Etsy.
The popup studio has an LED strip at the top that provides even lighting against a horizonless backdrop. Those backdrops come in seven colors: yellow, orange, green, purple, blue and pink. Foldio folds down into a flat package that’ll slip easily into a messenger bag or a backpack.
Wiggly is a modular three-axis stabilization device that aims to help iPhone shooters take the shake out of their videos. Control is limited to your wrist, a switch and a joystick. There are two iterations: a handheld unit for two-axis stabilization and a larger unit for one-axis stabilization.
Wiggly supports iPhones, GoPros and DSLRS under two pounds. We hope developers consider adding an Android version as well.
If your phone is your primary means of video creation, the Wiggly could prove beneficial, though $285+ seems like a bit of a tall order for anyone on a budget.
