Kogeto Dot iPhone Lens - Shoot 360 degree videos with iPhone 4/4S

Not so long ago a camera was a strange chunky object that you used to load film into, take your 24 or 36 snaps and then toddle off to the photo shop or Boots the chemists to have them developed. Then you´d wait a week for them to come back – and hope they hadn´t been substituted for David Bailey´s record of last week-ends Acacia Avenue swingers party.

With the advent of the on-demand 21st Century and online media came the smartphone with camera/video and the ability to take images of high detail, and then share them on the internet almost immediately. But what next? Feel limited by your phones built-in video functions? Well, take a look at the Kogeto Dot iPhone Lens – you´re in for a surprise!

Simply clip onto the outside of your Iphone 4 or 4S and you´re ready to shoot 360 degree videos. Simply place your iPhone on the palm of your hand or any flat surface and start recording. The Kogeto Dot features a unique catadioptric optical system which allows wide angle shooting.

Then just download the accompanying ´Looker´ app and you´re ready to explore your latest masterpiece. The effect is reminiscent of the 360 degree tours seen on websites, but likely to be of much more interesting subjects. You can explore the video from all angles, and gives a much more realistic impression of your subject.

Once you´re happy you can share your panoramic pictorials on Facebook, Twitter or Kogeto.com – where anyone can view them because you don´t need an app for that. You can even make live webcasts if the mood takes you – probably better to hide the Kogeto Dot first if you plan doing anything you might regret later, the internet is littered with the evidence of past indiscretions.

The Kogeto Dot iPhone Lens is available in green or black, and requires no batteries or external power supply – so your videos will last as long as your iPhone has a charge for. The Kogeto Dot is also supplied with a micro-fibre carry pouch that doubles as a lens cleaner. Crystal!
