Between its 8MP sensor and internet connectivity, the iPhone 4S is one of the best point-and-shoot cameras around. It can download thousands of photo-editing apps and upload images to a number of services.

But the lack of interchangeable lenses, a weak flash, and other missing features means that the iPhone won’t be replacing your DSLR anytime soon. Unless, of course, you had something like the 3RDi camera kit…

The 3RDi Kit, from Knight Vision Studio, is a full-on camera kit for the iPhone 4 and 4S. It includes a Wide-angle lens, a Fisheye lens, a Polarizer filter, an ND filter, a Lens Grip, and a case for your handset.

All of these things come together to dramatically enhance your iPhone’s picture-taking abilities. The Wide-angle lens adds depth to your photos, the Polarizer filter deepens colors, and the case holds it all together. As a bonus, the Lens grip has a built-in cold shoe mount, allowing you to connect an external flash or other accessory.

As you might have guessed by now, the 3RDi Kit is currently only available via Kickstarter. To get one, you’d have to pledge $135 or more, and hope that the team hits its lofty goal of $150,000 by August 19th.

And for those of you who want to improve their iPhone picture-taking skills without ponying up $130, be sure to check out our ongoing iPhoneography series. It’s full of tips and tricks for getting the most out of your iPhone pics, and is written by a real photographer.

What do you think of the 3RDi kit? Would you buy one?

    With the price of digital cameras, seems to me you could just buy a real one for that price.

    ie: Canon PowerShot A810 16.0 MP Digital Camera with 5x Digital Image for 109$ on amazon

      I don’t know about that, I have a p&s and more often then not I end up leaving it at home, cause with the iPhone (which is always with me) i can take pictures, edit with snapseed, and email or share to FB. Can’t do that with my Powershot..:-(

        I guess it depends on the person, even if you take a pic with your iPhone, you still need to bring along that contraption they are selling. I’d rather just bring a real camera then work on it in Photoshop on my PC, beats the hell ouf of snapseed imo.

        ps. not bashing snapseed, I bought it and enjoy it, but it can’t beat Photoshop on a PC imo.

    way Way WAY too expensive….

    • Not really, if it’s high quality glass in the lenses then it’s not expensive at all.

  • Coollll nice!!!!!

  • The iPhone will have a new design by the time this goes into production.

  • $135 is a heck of a lot of money when Olloclip exists for less than half that.
