  • Will.i.am Camera Add-ons for iPhone 4/4S Revealed


    Following up with the previous report about Black Eyed Peas star, Will.i.am launching a new camera accessory for the iPhone, The Telegraph reports that he has introduced the first batch of “i.am+” accessories. The products are said to be available in contemporary and vintage models for the iPhone 4 and 4S, packing a camera add-on bundled with a slide-out keyboard. Both products are currently said to be launched on December 6th.

    The “contemporary” model will be available for £199 and the “vintage” model is said to be available for £299. Here, both models are said to be using the existing iPhone camera while containing interchangeable lenses for standard, fish-eye, and zoom photo capabilities. It was also mentioned that the advanced models for the iPhone 5 are said to come with a dedicated 14-megapixel sensor and flash but won’t be launching until next year.

    As with many accessories nowadays, both add-ons have companion apps. The following was said about the apps that come with the add-ons:

    A companion iTunes app turns the hardware in to what the celebrity calls “a social photo experience”. It will also offer easy access for users to store In their individual i.am account.

    As with other apps and accessories, on on-screen controls allow users to change shooting modes, apply real-time filters, control the in-built flash and edit pictures or add caption.
    The new devices are said to be integrating with an online service similar to Instagram, named i.am.
    With the hefty price tag, the success of the accessories remains to be seen.

      Still have to log out to read comments. BIG site small development or support.

      This product goes from the hollywood elite to the backyard ugly. If I want a 14 megapixel camera I will use a SLR. Not this not now and not never.

      thumbs down.

      the problem with your logic is that for this product to be successful, it must first become a 'fad.' to become a fad, or be "in style," it needs to be adopted by a large number of iphone users, and based on my personal assessment of the scene, and the responses from other modmyi users, i would say that is doubtful.

      and you think he thought of everything? please, this is far from a game-changing idea. and if he did think of everything, what, exactly, is the genius behind the slide out keyboard...? no one has mentioned this feature of the device in comments thus far, leaving me curious as to how people feel about it. does this feature add to the product's appeal, or make it seem like even more of a gaudy, bulky, and useless toy?

      Definitely not this.
      I'm gonna stick with CameraTweak found in Cydia.
      For only $0.99 it adds a lot more features that this beast.

      I'm confused.

      How can this possibly work?

      If "both models are said to be using the existing iPhone camera", then at the point of entry into the phone, the maximum pixels that can be captured will be 8m.

      Surely, it doesn't matter what you put the other side of the lens (14m or whatever), the picture taken can't be more than 8m, as that is the maximum the iPhone can do?

      What am I missing here?
