It simply clips onto your phone over the camera and gives you a 160 degree view so you can film rail and kicker tricks easily without missing anything. For photo’s it’s great too because you get so much more into the shot, it’s something fun to use and create different images with your friends.
Because it just clips onto your phone it means you can use it for either you main camera or the self facing camera so getting epic selfies is really easy!
It’s small enough to keep in your pocket and comes with a little protective bag to keep it in and a lens cap for when your not using it. Black Eye have a few different options like the wide angle and macro lenses so you can find the best one for your style of filming. The view is great and you can even see your feet in the shot sometimes! If your not that confident at filming this is perfect for you because it gives you extra space so you don’t get shouted at for missing the rider in a shot. It’s a quick way to upgrade your phone camera and avoid carrying extra equipment with you.
Black Eye is founded by three friends, Eero Ettala and Fredu Sirviö who are professional snowboarders along with Skateboard Photographer Arto Edman who have developed the products to work easily with board sports. They know exactly what is needed to capture the perfect shot and you can see this in the product line. You’ll never miss a shot now and wish you had packed your camera because you can do it all from your phone!
