Lumera: Add social features to your professional camera
The SLR and semi-reflex parameters have been much higher than they can achieve the integrated lens quality smartphones and tablets, but in turn has none of those features that let you share images directly to social networks. Lumera is an accessory designed to fill that gap with WiFi and Bluetooth, geo-location support and remote control via iOS or Android .
Leave the territory of casual photography to buy a DSLR is not a simple process to say. In addition to the large number of models available, we must also consider the economic factor because these cameras require a major financial commitment. The dramatic increase in the image quality, flexibility and precision that bring the lenses and functions that assist the photographer in search of the best shot certainly worth the investment. However, many models leave behind those items that are so attractive in cameras smartphones and tablets, such as the ability to share the photo taken with a few taps. I understand that social networks are extremely unfair when images are compressed to save space on their servers . This causes a high-quality Facebook or Twitter lose consciousness, but the idea still capture and combine the best of both worlds, then you should take a closer look at Lumera.
Basically, the plan Lumera is incorporating “social functions” to an SLR . The module has a dedicated button to share images, an option to add geo-location to each of the captured images and support for WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. It also offers a dedicated application that offers the chance to remotely adjust certain elements in the camera settings like ISO, zoom, white balance, aperture, the final image resolution and format among other things. Another feature to note in Lumera is the creation of “timelapse” controlled without difficulty from the smartphone.
Lumera focuses its support on Nikon and Canon cameras , covering more than 70 different models. If your camera is not listed, there is the option to get in touch with developers of Lumera and check what are the chances of adding compatibility. Lumera has joined Kickstarter looking for some 90 billion Canadian dollars (about 63,000 euros) and the current price per Lumera is 170 Canadian dollars(about 120 euros) . This price includes international shipping without charge , a detail no doubt attractive. If all goes well, the first deliveries will take place between March and May next year.
