Your Instagram pics are boring

It’s time for a change


It’s taken you ten tries but you’ve finally managed to take that perfect pre-night out selfie. Now all that’s left is to agonise over which filter to use on it, and then post it onto every social media network you can think of.

Twelve hours later, it’s only got seven likes. And one of those is your mum.

Cheers mum

The problem with Instagram these days is that everyone’s on it, so it’s hard to make your pictures stand out from the crowd. After all, everyone’s using the same Crema/Valencia/black-and-white filter, everyone’s holding the camera the same way, and everyone’s pulling the same, irritating face.

It’s time to find a different way to make your pictures get people’s attention. And that’s exactly what instaLens can do.

Rather than just changing your filter, instaLens lets you change your entire camera lens. The magnetic attachment fixes the lens over the camera on your smartphone, allowing you to take pics that look a little bit different.
