About

 We are a company born on Kickstarter. We design and manufacture premium optical products for smartphones. We are proud to be back with our second project: 

THE LEMURO ANAMORPHIC LENS: You Can Now Produce Hollywood Style Content On Your Smartphone. Available for iPhone and Android. We start shipping in December. This is your chance to grab the all Lemuro products at up to 40% discount!

WHAT IS AN ANAMORPHIC LENS?

Lemuro Anamorphic is an premium quality attachment lens for your smartphone that allows you to capture Hollywood style widescreen images. The Lemuro anamorphic lens captures broader aspect ratios than ever before and creates that iconic letterbox look with vintage horizontal lens flares and distortions for unique effects.

Please note, Add-on items are selected after the campaign is over. For now, just add the amount of items you would like to add. If you mistyped or got anything wrong, our team will assist you after the campaign ended. 

UPDATE: The DJI Osmo Mobile 3 will be available during the campaign

 Lemuro Anamorphic: Cinematic Footage at Your Fingertips 

Looking to bring the magic of Hollywood home? Check out the Lemuro Anamorphic Lens, built for all iPhones and most Android devices. It offers a new and easy way for you to capture cinematic quality video on your device.

Professional camera technology hasn't always been widely available.  You would often need to pay a lot of money to get access to the best studio equipment! Lemuro aims to change the game completely. This ultra-wide panoramic lens is built to capture incredible perspective and beautiful organic lens flares.

HOW IT WORKS: 

Our Anamorphic Lens lets you capture wide-perspective shots and horizontal lens flares like never before.  Shoot 2.4:1 video.  Take stills in 16:9 for that authentic, cinematic feel.  Cinematic camera tech is now available for a wider audience at an affordable price.

OPTICAL DESIGN:

The lens design is built by German engineers and uses Cylindrical and Aspherical elements. All optical components consist of blue multi-layered high definition glass and are protected by an anodized aluminum lens housing that attaches to our universal lens mounting clip or the iconic Lemuro photo case (available separately).

PROTOTYPE:

We created multiple iterations of this lens. The product design team created the first prototype (v1.0) in 2018 but we decided not to release this initial lens concept to the public as we were not 100% happy with the glass coating and optical performance. The final version (v2.0) was finalized in 2019 and will be the version that all backers will receive.

Broaden Your Horizon

The Lemuro Anamorphic Lens captures ultra-high resolution.  This can then be squeezed out during editing and post-production.  Whether you are making films for fun or profit, this lens may be the only accessory your iPhone's camera could ever need.  Why pay more for bulky studio technology?

This lens gives you access to great quality visuals on the go.  Filming a documentary?  Need to build a portfolio or demo reel?  Simply fit the lens to your iPhone, and you're good to go.

THANKS

Thanks to everyone who believes in us and has helped us setting up the very young company. Your support means everything to us. 

This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 950+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $400M raised between them.

Risks and challenges

It has taken us nearly a year to be where we are today. It has been incredibly challenging to combine such amazing optical performance in such a compact and sleek design.

This upfront development has inherently reduced the amount of risks still involved in our project and we now face the final task of bringing together all elements: Namely, tooling, compliance testing and final production. To further reduce risk and challenges, we have partnered with world-leading manufacturers of optical glass, leather and synthetic materials.

The last challenge is delivering the individual product to each of our kickstarter backers. We have done this before and we have delivered IN TIME. Our logistics team has spent a considerable amount of time selecting a logistics partner that has a proven track record to greatly mitigate the risks involved. This provides us with added insurance and confidence to overcome all challenges ahead.

Unforeseeable risks, minor setbacks and "hiccups" might arise but we will always be transparent and do everything we can to keep our first and most valuable customers, the Kickstarter community, happy.

Taxes & Customs

Literally nobody enjoys taxes & customs, but they are an important obligation that nobody can avoid. Please note that import duties and taxes are not included in our reward levels. These charges vary by country and are conducted by the local authorities. This online tool can help you estimate potential charges:

We will be shipping LEMURO all over the world and unfortunately it is technically not possible for us to build the tax/customs charges into the reward levels of Kickstarter. Please remember that this is a perfectly normal issue faced by project creators on this platform and we want to be 100% transparent about it and highlight.
