    Default 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.


    £299 "Vintage" for iPhone 4/4S


    £199 "Contemporary" for iPhone 4/4S

    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.

    I'm sorry but I can't stop laughing. Some one tell me I did read the the price correctly? Why anyone would spend that much on that shite is beyond me. You could get an amazing point and shoot camera for £300.

    I can't help but think this will be an epic FAIL! William do your self a favour, quit the project in fact quit music!

    And I hope this wont bastardise photos like Instagram has!

    This would be good if it weren't for the over-pricing. I could see maybe £150 for the vintage and £75 for contemporary, but £200-£300 is horribly overpriced.

    That is $250 for a contemporary model. It's cool but that is too much for an ugly add-on.

    Yea, no. I will stick with my phones camera to capture spur of the moment candid moments while going through my day. If I am going on a vacation or to an event that I want higher quality pics I will take my camera with me.

    lol "not for the current iPhoner"? well that destroys all possibility for sales, considering you have to own an iphone to use the accessory... who do you suspect was their target market and customer base?
    On January 24th, Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh. And you'll see why 1984 won't be like "1984."

    Maybe the techies wont love this add-on, but in reality it is a great way to get involved with the accessory business. Anybody can put out a phone case, and will.i.am's advertising method with incorporate the accessory with his new website is just plain clever. I am sure that the iPhone users who cant get enough from their photo apps, or just want to have a really unique phone case with added features will go crazy for this.

    ESPECIALLY since Christmas is around the corner.

    Since there is a new iPhone released every year, why would you sell a product that fits last years iPhone? By that time, consumers move onto the newer offering which most likely will not fit. He's behind before even starting.

    I can sum it all up in a word "ROTFLUTS"!
    By the way can anyone answer me why "abbreviation" is such a long word? Answers on a postcard please!
    And the prize for the correct answer is "i.am+" accesory or whatever it is!!! Let's see who's up for this. 😁😜💤

    Those are really ugly. I would never spend that much money for something that would make my iPhone bulky, heavy, and add a couple of new features to my camera.....totally not worth it. If these are a hit I'll be extremely surprised!
