Pictar Pro | DSLR Your Smartphone.

$348,655

From the magazines to Instagram, more and more photographers are using smartphones as their primary cameras. And with good reason: today's smartphone cameras really are that awesome. Problem is, phones are made for the mass public, and so, they’re limited on the advanced features that give you more control.

Pictar Pro bridges the gap between a phone's power and camera's usability with a wide set of physical controls and software features. The cherry on top is the phenomenal user experience: a pleasure-to-touch polished metal grip and an unmatched front-loaded intuitive user interface.

It all started from the simple concept of adding expanded functionality along with a camera-like grip to smartphones.

On the Pictar Pro, we took things up a few notches. We designed it using only the most premium materials we could find, and added lots of feature requests we received from the community. And then we added a little battery boost too.

We can't say it enough- you have an awesome camera that you're using to take pictures of food, but your same smartphone camera was likely used to capture shots for National Geographic and Vogue in the past year. 

You already have all the components and megapixels you can possibly need, now add a robust tool to use 'em the right way.

When attached to Pictar Pro’s body, the foldable silicon viewfinder enables you to preview images and videos in full vivid detail- even under the brightest lights. Like when you’re outdoors on a sunny afternoon.

The screen adapts automatically, shrinking to the viewfinder’s window as soon as it’s snapped on to its designated slot.

Utilizing a seamless modern pairing connection technology, Pictar Pro pairs with your smartphone instantly via sound-waves, with no physical or Bluetooth connection necessary.

We’re a team of obsessed makers for photography and proud Kickstarters. 

We’ve dedicated the last 5 years to developing and selling bags, cases, gadgets, and accessories to help photographers and videographers take their work to the next level.

The Pictar Pro is the improved premium version of our bestselling Pictar, which was successfully funded on Kickstarter and delivered to all our backers in early 2017. We took your feedback, added some ideas of our own, and developed the Pictar Pro.

Risks and challenges

We are very confident in this product and our abilities to get the best possible product on time to all our users. As experienced campaigners, we were able to plan for production while taking in to account unexpected complexities. Our team has dedicated itself to this campaign and we are well prepared for all the post-campaign stages.
