Lenses on your iPhone Camera

Miscellaneous

Oh! That's a moment! "Click" -- Picture!
How cute, let me take a picture! "Click"

Are you familiar with those sentences? Now we hear them all day long since we don't need to carry a camera to immortalize our favorites moments. Now we have our smart phones that are becoming more and more the camera for our new generation.

Even though less common, we still don't use our phones to replace professional cameras, we just use them as a little toy that we quickly connect with Instagram or similar app to give to our pictures a new twist.

Here we are presenting a new tool that will amaze those who love photography and who own an iPhone: The Olloclip

The Olloclip is a small clip that attaches to the corner of your iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S, fitting over the corner where the camera is housed. Embedded in the clip are two lenses, which you access by flipping the clip to the appropriate side.

On one side is a macro lens which is part of a two element wide angle and the other side is a fixed fisheye.

So three lenses to shake things up a bit. This is a great set of tools to give your photos a little variation. The fisheye is fantastic for shooting things from a low or high angle and for snapping panoramas in less shots. The wide angle is good for those ‘everybody on the couch, backed up against the wall’ indoor snaps.

The macro ability of the iPhone 4S is pretty stellar on its own and the iPhone 4 wasn’t too shabby either. The macro built in to the Olloclip is simply off the charts.
