Just as promised, the famous singer and musician Will.i.am (Black Eyed Peas) introduced his intriguing 14MP camera accessories for the Apple iPhone 5 at a special event in London.
The accessories are part of the i.am+ foto.sosho line-up and comprise of the C.4, V.4 for the iPhone 4 and 4S V.5 and L.5, naturally, for the iPhone 5. All of them come with interchangeable lenses and a dedicated app.
Here they are posing for a family photo.
The V5 and L5 accessories feature a 14-megapixel sensor, and all four have a 5x zoom lens. According to Will.i.am, the flash unit on the foto.sosho line-up is also far superior than the one Apple has provided with the iPhone 4, 4S and 5.
Starting off with the foto.sosho C.4, which is the entry-level model. It includes three interchangeable lenses – macro, fish-eye and clear glass and also features a handy grip for better handling.
The foto.sosho V.4 is the enhanced version of the C.4 and boasts a timeless vintage design. It packs a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, which is backlit. Utilizing Bluetooth to pair with the phone, the V.4 is compatible with either the iPhone 4 and 4S.
The i.am+ foto.sosho V.5 and L.5 carry the same features of the iPhone 4 and 4S foto.sosho accessories listed above, but are specifically designed to fit the slightly taller iPhone 5.
At the event, Will.i.am shared his insights and hopes that this product would serve as an inspiration to a new generation of entrepreneurs.
As we told you couple of days ago, the fancy accessories will come with a custom app allowing you to apply Instagram-like effects. Afterwards, you can upload them to your special www.i.am/YourName account and share them with your friends. Pretty neat, right?
For now, only the pricing of the i.am+ foto.sosho C.4 and V.4 has been announced and it’s quite pricey at £199 and £299, respectively. The rest of the fancy accessories for the iPhone 5 will get their price tags at a later date and for a while will only be available at London’s Selfridges department store.
