The HiLO Lens redirects the iPhone and iPad camera 90 degrees so it becomes easy to get more creative angles in your photos. With the HiLO Lens the tablet can be held at waist level and the photo of the horizon framed while looking down at the iPad screen. The Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign has been launched to bring HiLO Lens into production. Anyone can back the HiLO Lens project on Kickstarter now and receive one of the first HiLO Lens to be produced.

Unique iPhone and iPad Mini Camera Gadget

The HiLO Lens iPhone and iPad camera accessory, offers functionality like the swivel/rotating screen common on modern digital cameras. HiLO Lens is the first right angle lens for the iPhone and iPad. Just launched on Kickstarter, HiLO Lens is bringing a completely new angle to mobile photography.

Early digital cameras came with fixed screens but in later models swivel/flip/vari-angle screens became popular. This new freedom meant the screen no longer needed to be aligned with the scene, so awesome photos from unique angles became possible. Many photographers insist on having this camera feature.

Like early digital cameras, today’s smartphones such as the iPhone and tablets like the iPad and iPad Mini have the screen and camera in a fixed position. This makes it difficult to capture low angle shots, or take photos over a crowd. The revolutionary HiLO Lens Press Release

HiLO Lens redirects the camera 90 degrees so it becomes easy to get more creative angles in your photos.

For the iPad and iPad Mini the HiLO Lens makes photography much more practical. Tablets are uncomfortable to hold at arms length when framing photos, they also look out of place. With the HiLO Lens the tablet can be held at waist level and the photo of the horizon framed while looking down at the iPad screen.

“HiLO Lens offers possibilities for the iPhone and iPad that never existed before. The HiLO Lens is fantastic for getting low level photographs of young children and pets - just like the pros do” said Mark Hampton the creator of HiLO Lens.

The Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign has been launched to bring HiLO Lens into production. Anyone can back the HiLO Lens project on Kickstarter now and receive one of the first HiLO Lens to be produced.

To fund the initial production of HiLO Lens the team turned to Kickstarter.com, a crowdfunding website. Backers on Kickstarter can pre-purchase HiLO Lens now. Only after backers pledge a total of $27500 on Kickstarter will the pledges be collected, then the initial production run will be made. If the funding goal is not reached then backer’s pledges are not collected. HiLO Lens has already raised over 60% of the goal!

HiLO Lens makes it easier than ever to take memorable photos with an iPhone. With HiLO Lens discover a new angle. Visit the HiLO Lens project on Kickstarter.com

Just use blu-tack or similar to support the phone and you can avoid adding anything to the optical path which will reduce the image quality.

Never knew something like this exist. Is it going to increase picture quality as well?

You can still get your HiLO Lens on Kickstarter now!
@MoveInTech add on lenses can give you different types of images but the image quality cannot be improved with an add-on lens
