Move aside, Instagram. A new tool called Mobi-Lens aims to enhance personal photography with two clothespin-like clips that give photographers their choice of a wide angle/macro lens or a fisheye lens.

The clips operate with mobile phones, tablets, most laptop webcams and some digital cameras, according to Mobi-Lens' Kickstarter page.

The two-in-one wide angle/macro lens has dual use: The wide angle lens has a smaller focal length, and captures more of a scene in a photo, while the macro lens allows close-up shots of very small objects.

The fisheye lens is a "super" wide angle lens that creates visual distortion, resulting in panoramic or spherical photos.

Users can adjust the lenses accordingly to match up with the camera lens on their device, the page said.

So far, creators Evette and Aris Allahverdian have raised over $11,000 of their $34,000 goal. They plan to raise enough money to fund the final touches of the Mobi-Lens, and to cover manufacturing costs.
