The Lumenati CS1 Smartcase that just launched on Kickstarter is a modern interpretation of the Super 8 cameras that were hugely popular decades ago. Instead of loading a film cartridge into the body like you would with the original, the Lumenati CS1 uses your iPhone 6 to capture your shots. But you can already shoot video with your phone, so the Lumenati adds a lot of cool features to the case in addition to being able to hold it like a Super 8 camera. You don’t have to fumble with the screen thanks to the functional trigger. There are interchangeable 58mm lenses for wide, fisheye and telephoto. The real-time, low-light viewfinder makes squinting a thing of the past. Then there’s the hot shoe mount for lights, a microphone or even a grip. When you’re done shooting, use their cinematic app for enhancements and sharing. The Lumenati CS1 is the perfect blend of nostalgic form and modern function.

Each set is made in Italy and comes in a stealth color exclusive to Cool Material. For all the valuable knickknacks strewn around the house or tossed haphazardly on your workbench, these boxes are ready to placate your inner organizational fiend.
