What does Snapzoom do?

Snapzoom connects and aligns a smartphone camera with the eyepiece of an optical scope. The scope then becomes an accessory lens, and the smartphone camera’s image is magnified by the power of the scope. For example, the iPhone 5’s camera is equivalent to a 33mm lens field of view. Adding a Snapzoom and the average 10x power binocular increases the size of the image to a 330mm lens field of view.

What makes Snapzoom so awesome?

  • It’s totally universal! Snapzoom works with all major smartphones, with or without a case, and all single or dual eyepiece scopes, like binoculars, spotting scopes, telescopes, and microscopes.
  • Snapzoom turns your smartphone into an autofocusing scope viewfinder, which allows small children or groups of people to share the view.
  • Snapzoom locks your smartphone’s camera to the scope in the landscape position, so your videos will be easier to watch on larger screens.
  • Our patent pending design allows Snapzoom to be securely worn on a pair of binoculars during outdoor activities.
  • Snapzoom is simple to use, and it connects in seconds.

Why do I need a Snapzoom?

The versatility and convenience of Smartphone cameras have changed the world of photography forever. The only limitation is their slim profile, which restricts them to a fixed focal length lens. Snapzoom liberates your smartphone by utilizing the high quality optics in your binoculars to maximize the reach of your smartphone's camera, and get you closer to the action.

Most adapters on the market are made by optical scope companies, exclusively for their products, and are limited to use with a single phone model.

Other "universal" adapters are quite complicated and include several attachments for the different eyecup sizes, and you must use their specific model phone case to connect to the eyepiece.

Snapzoom is the only universal adapter that makes long-distance smartphone photography fun and affordable for everyone.

Why we need your help?

We have finished with our design phase, and have lined up qualified manufacturers in the US and overseas to insure a quality product at a fair price.

The biggest cost involved with the manufacturing of Snapzoom, is the creation of the injection molds. Snapzoom functions simply, but its parts are complex, and the molds to make them are incredibly expensive.

We are asking for your support to fund the initial costs of creating the injection molds, and to buy hardware in larger quantities. With your help, we can begin production, and start shipping Snapzooms to backers as early as August 2013.

Please spread the word and share our project with your friends, and thank you for checking out Snapzoom!

Note: Snapzoom is patent pending, and will retail for $74.95 (phones and scopes are not included). iPhone, Apple, and Apple logo are registered trademarks of Apple Inc. Samsung, and Galaxy s3 are a registered trademark of Samsung Corporation.

USE BINOCULARS AS A TELEPHOTO LENS

Smartphones can produce amazing wide angle images, but they struggle with long distance subjects. Their tiny fixed lenses can only zoom digitally, and the images end up lacking clarity and detail.

Snapzoom gives you the ability to use binoculars, spotting scopes, telescopes and microscopes as accessory lenses. These devices use high quality glass lenses to increase the power of the smartphone's camera, and produce rich, tack-sharp macro and telephoto images.

WILL SNAPZOOM WORK WITH MY STUFF?

  • With or without a case, Snapzoom is compatible with any smartphone up to 3.67in. (93mm) wide, and nearly 1in. (23mm) thick.
  • Snapzoom works with a wide variety of optics and accepts any eyepiece with an outside diameter of 1.18in. (30mm) - 2.17in. (55mm) wide, and a min. 1in. (25mm) in height. *Snapzoom is not compatible with rifle scopes.
  • Snapzoom is designed to attach to both binocular eyepieces for a stronger less stressful connection. This unique feature, along with the counter-weight accessory, keeps the phone in the “landscape” filming position for easier to watch videos.
  • Snapzoom works with all standard and third party camera apps that use the rear camera. The camera retains all of its functions, including autofocus, auto exposure, and face recognition.
