Lemuro launches line of high-end iPhone accessory lenses


With a few exceptions, like Moment or Zeiss products, accessory lenses for smartphones tend to be rather cheap and more often than not, produce low quality images. For those photographers who don't mind spending a bit more on high-quality accessory lenses, there is now a new alternative: German brand Lemuro has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund mass production of its line of iPhone accessory lenses.

Currently four Lemuro lenses are on offer: a 60mm equivalent tele "portrait" lens, a 25mm 10X macro lens, a 18mm equivalent wide angle lens and an 8mm equivalent fisheye.


The lens bodies are crafted from aluminum and attach to a leather-clad protective case via a metal lens mount. Currently cases are available for the iPhones X, 7, 7 plus, 8 and 8 plus but Lemuro says Android cases are in the making and should be expected later in 2018.


Lemuro's campaign is already fully funded, so, barring any unforeseen complications, production will go ahead. You can still pre-order on Kickstarter until June 22 and a pledge of of 75 Euros (approximately $88) will get you the starter kit with one case and lens. The pro kit with case and all four lenses will set you back 225 Euros (approximately $262). Delivery of the Kickstarter orders is scheduled for November 2018.

You can find more information and sample images on the Lemuro Kickstarter page.
