While they may seem outdated in the age of touchscreens, you’ve got to admit that the point-and-shoot cameras of yesteryear definitely got something right. They’re ergonomic, user-friendly, and make getting the perfect photo a breeze.
Now imagine if you had those streamlined functions attached to the impressive camera on your smartphone. It would open up a whole new realm of possibilities. That’s why the Pictar Pro was successfully funded on both Kickstarter and Indiegogo with over $800k total. People like options.
The Pictar Pro is a tool that transforms your phone (works with most iPhones and Android phones, even with a case attached) into something akin to a DSLR, equipping it with a smart metal grip, full-sized buttons, a zoom switch, viewfinder, and more. And for a limited time, it’s on sale for 25% off.
By sliding the Pictar Pro onto your phone and downloading the Pictar app, a handful of useful functions will be at your disposal. There are full-sized metal buttons on top for multi-state shutter release, zoom, and exposure, plus a detachable viewfinder for a clear screen view. Not only do these accessible buttons make it easier to achieve the shot you want, but the weight of them also adds more stability to your photos. The companion app opens up a wide array of other features, including manual, shutter, ISO priority modes, exposure compensation, grids, and beyond.
Here’s a closer look:
The Pictar Pro easily connects to accessories, like lenses and tripods, and wirelessly charges up via Qi technology. It’s truly like having the best of both worlds — old school and new school — right at your fingertips. Plus, it allows you to use that impressive camera on your phone to the best of its ability.
