Snap Scheme filter for iPhone 14 – now on Kickstarter

Snap Filter is an innovative filter system for the iPhone that uses Apple’s MagSafe technology to hold itself in place. This set of filters provides iPhone photographers with creative options for fast, easy and fun cinematography. It is now Live on Kickstarter With a new update for the iPhone 14. Let’s take a look at what it’s all about!

Created by YouTuber Mediastorm and their company Pan’s Scheme, Pan’s Snap Filter is a simple and elegant concept. The system consists of two components; A filter tray that snaps magnetically to the back of the iPhone, and filter kits that lock into place.

The filter system is designed to cover the entire rear camera assembly as well, so there’s nothing to reposition and no adjustments to make when choosing iPhone lenses.

Pan’s Scheme currently offers 5 types of filters for the Snap Filter system: ND Filter Bundle, Blue Streak, Gold Streak, Cross-star and Black Mist.

Since all current iPhone models lack internal NDs, some kind of neutral density filter is required to control the shutter speed in bright light conditions. Line filters add an “anamorphic” appearance to light sources. Black Mist filters smooth digital sharpness for a more cinematic look.
