Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:20 CET under 01 - General News

Schneider-Kreuznach is one of the more renowned optical manufactures in the world, and it's U.S. subsidiary Schneider Optics, which has been producing the highest quality optics on the market for over 90 years, has recently announced the availability of its iPro Lens system for the Samsung Galaxy S4. The idea behind the iPro Lens (which was so far already available for the iPhone and iPad) is that it's not to offer you another camera, but enhances the one you already have. Your smartphone or your tablet. Therefore, each Lens easily twists on and off and lets you capture more in every shot. The pocket-sized Lens case securely protects your Lenses, doubles as a universal tripod mount, and also makes a comfortable handle.
