Our vision at Fjorden is to make the camera in your pocket the best camera in the world.
The inspiration was a magical moment in 1983: That’s when our founder Victor, aged 3, fell in love with his father’s Rollei 35 camera. He’s been shooting photos on DSLRs and mirrorless cameras ever since - and wanted to bring the same professional camera controls to his iPhone.
In 2021, Victor launched Fjorden on Kickstarter. The campaign raised more than $500,000 - more than 2x the funding goal - from thousands of photographers all over the world.
