The Lumenati CS1 Smartcase that just launched on Kickstarter is a modern interpretation of the Super 8 cameras that were hugely popular decades ago. Instead of loading a film cartridge into the body like you would with the original, the Lumenati CS1 uses your iPhone 6 to capture your shots. But you can already shoot video with your phone, so the Lumenati adds a lot of cool features to the case in addition to being able to hold it like a Super 8 camera. You don’t have to fumble with the screen thanks to the functional trigger. There are interchangeable 58mm lenses for wide, fisheye and telephoto. The real-time, low-light viewfinder makes squinting a thing of the past. Then there’s the hot shot mount for lights, a microphone or even a grip. When you’re done shooting, use their cinematic app for enhancements and sharing. The Lumenati CS1 is the perfect blend of nostalgic form and modern function. Check it out HERE.
