Many Smartphone accessories adding optical zoom have been seen in past but none of them are like Snapzoom.
It has no lens system of its own so it enable the users to safely and simply mount their Smartphone to a pair of binoculars, to a microscope, or even a telescope to add extra magnification.
The story of Snapzoom started earlier in 2012 when Daniel Fujikake and Mac Nguyen tried shooting photos and videos through a pair of binoculars with an iPhone. Though they were happy with the results but an easy way of keeping the Smartphone aligned with the binoculars' eyepiece was not available at the time. Finally, the Snapzoom project was born and brought to Kickstarter where it received $55,000 funding it pledged for in a matter of days.
Snapzoom can work with pretty much popular Smartphone like an iPhone, Android, Windows Phone handset, even the massive Samsung Galaxy Note II.
The retail version will cost $75 once it is in market. Early adopters can grab it for $70 via Kickstarter or for $90 with a set of Bushnell binoculars. The accessory can be expected to be sale by September 2013.
