Olivia Vagelos and Martin Bush launch Kickstarter project for Mount July filters
For those who are unaware of the subject, they should know that Mount July consists of a series of color-splashed filters for digital cameras. They can be attached to your lens and they can even be stacked on top of one another for even more creative effects.
The Mount July series consists of three filters. The family consists of Stinson, Sedona, and Sayulita. They will work when capturing stills or movies, too.
Although the Mount July filters are aimed at digital cameras, Olivia and Martin have confirmed that the filters are compatible with analog shooters, as well, because they can be attached to any 52mm and 58mm lenses.
More details about donating to the Kickstarter campaign
People who donate $35 or more on Kickstarter will receive one filter of their choice. Backers will have to specify which version they want, as well as its size.
Moreover, pledging $65 will get you a Stinson and Sedona pair, which are great for photographers looking to add warmer tones to their photography, along with a bit of vignetting.
In order to get all three filters, Kickstarter users will have to donate $95. Additionally, it is worth specifying that more money will get you some nice and fun presents.
The Stanford students need your help right now
The full campaign requires $32,000 to be successful. There are 27 days to go and the Stanford team has managed to raise $8,882 at the time of writing this article.
Although there is still enough time until the end, we invite anybody who wants a filter to donate, in order to raise the whole amount so that the manufacturing process begins sooner.
