The Moment Case Can Turn Your iPhone Into A Professional Camera

The Moment Case Can Turn Your iPhone Into A Professional Camera

There’s no denying that the ability to take photos on your smartphone has changed the world. Smartphone photography is easy, fun, quick and sharable, but still lacks the patience and grit of using a traditional camera.

For years, companies have been attempting to create lenses that lend the user the same feel and proficiency as a camera, while maintaining the small, unobtrusive, convenient nature of the smart phone. Smartphone photography lens company Moment may have officially combined the two perfectly. Meet the Moment Case:

Although the case itself may look simplistic, it is an intricate mount for both the wide-angle and telephoto Moment lenses which were released in 2014. What makes this case different from any of it’s predecessors is that it offers half-press focus locking and full-press shutter release functions like a real camera.

The case then communicates with your phone using Bluetooth LE.

Moment launched their Kickstarter on January 27, 2015, and have already received numerous backers. Those who contribute have a choice of either a black and white or entirely black case for $49, while those who only want lenses can purchase one for $125, or both for $199.

The company’s founder, Marc Barros, says that the Moment Case took five months to develop and that it was the most challenging design project he’s worked on so far. Currently, the case is only compatible with the iPhone 6, however the company hopes to expand their models if this first campaign is successful.

Comment below and let us know what you think of Moment’s new product!

          7 Best Project Management Apps to Boost Productivity

          Project management doesn’t need to be a complicated thing, not if you have apps that make things a whole lot simpler. When you have project management apps, you can take care of your team, tasks and deadlines, without even being in the office. You don’t even have to spend a lot of money to get most of the apps you might need.

          Here are the 7 best project management apps to super boost your team’s productivity:

          1. Basecamp

            It’s probably the most well-known project management app out there. It allows you to organize projects that act as a central location for everything and contains such things as to-do lists, notes, events, files, and much more.

            It is user-friendly, and has a free 30-day trial period. After that, the plan is $99 per month.

                4. Trello

                  This app is incredibly user-friendly, and is based on Kanban boards. It actually works like a virtual whiteboard with post-it-notes.

                  Trello is great for organizing your to-do lists, ideas, and is very easy to use. You can create several boards to use for various projects, and it’s free of cost. Trello is available to iOS and Android users as well.

                        This is one of the most commonly-used project management apps. However, it is also one of the most difficult apps to use. It does have a lot of features that are popular with project managers, which is why we have chosen to include in on this list. You can customize reports, track burn rates, and stay on track until projects are complete.

                        The basic plan starts with $7 per month, which allows you project team members to collaborate in the cloud, via web browser or mobile.
