In a world where nearly everyone has a smart phone that they use for everything from note taking, alarms, gaming, taking photos and much more, it should come as no surprise that companies want to improve on current products and capitalize on this market. This is exactly what olloclip have done, they have created photo lenses for today’s smart phones, more specifically Apple Iphones. They also have lenses and cases for other current Apple products.
Today I am taking a look at the olloclip 3-IN-1 Photo Lens for the Iphone 5C. This lens is designed to add three unique features to our picture taking ability: Macro, Wide Angle and Fisheye shooting modes. Macro mode is for close ups while wide angle is of course for those stunning panoramic images where you want to get as much in the photo as possible and fisheye allows us to create hemispherical images.
Before we get a closer look at the lens itself, let’s see what olloclip have to say about their 3-in-1 lens and get their definition on what each of the modes will allow for.
Capture the image you want
The olloclip is a quick-connect lens solution for the iPhone that includes fisheye, wide-angle and macro lenses in one small, convenient package that easily fits in your pocket. Nestled in the palm of your hand, the olloclip connects to the iPhone within seconds so you’ll be sure to capture the image you want…if you don’t see the picture you’re looking for just flip it over to switch lenses.
The Macro lens applies roughly a 10X multiplier and allows you to focus the iPhone within 12-15mm of the subject. The Macro lens is cleverly concealed within the olloclip and can be accessed by unscrewing the Wide-Angle lens that is normally attached to it.
The Fisheye lens captures approximately a 180 Degree field-of-view and produces some striking images.
The Wide-Angle lens is great for when you need that extra field of view, approximately double that of the normal iPhone.
