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!

          11 Brain Training Apps to Train Your Mind and Improve Memory

          Whether at work or at school, people these days are under tremendous pressure to perform, perform and perform! Stress and pressure can have adverse affects on the well-being of a person, and need to be controlled.

          Now, this doesn’t mean you make a dash to your nearest therapist. There are a number of wonderful and smart apps that you can use on your phone. These brain training apps have been scientifically designed to target specific areas of the human mind and control harmful emotions such as anxiety, as well as to improve memory and sharpness of the brain.

          Here are 11 iPhone apps that you will not only enjoy but also find useful in keeping your mental health balanced at all times.

          1. Lumosity

          This app consists of games that focus on improving the user’s memory, problem-solving capability, attention span, and thinking. There are three games in each session, and they challenge the brain by changing every time. The user has to complete the games while playing against a clock.

          Free of trial. $15 per month for the full version.

                  You will like the little gold robot that comes in every time to explain the next game you are going to play. While the games are not much different to those offered in apps such as Luminosity, the look and feel reminds me of a workshop from old times.

                  Free.

There is also a map that informs the user of the nearest therapist and medical facilities for mental health treatment.
