Olloclip Releases 3-in-1 Photo Lens for iPhone 5

by

olloclip has released a new version of its 3-in–1 photo lens solution, which has been redesigned for the iPhone 5. The lens set comes in three different colors, red, black, and white, and features three lens types in a single accessory.

The fisheye lens captures photos with a 180 degree field of view, while the wide-angle lens doubles the iPhone’s normal field of view and the macro lens applies a 10x macro magnification.

olloclip’s fisheye lens is also designed to work with Apple’s new Panorama camera feature, which was introduced with iOS 6. With Panorama 360 Plus, the lens is able to capture a 360 degree image with both a wider and taller field of view than the standard iPhone 5 camera can produce.

As with the olloclip for the iPhone 4 and 4S, olloclip for the iPhone 5 snaps on to the upper right corner of the phone over the camera and allows for the quick changing of lenses.

Steven Sande of TUAW recently released a review of the olloclip for the iPhone 5.

I was impressed with the olloclip both for the quality and ease of use. If you’re in the aftermarket for some creative lenses for your iPhone 5 (or the 4/4S), it’s definitely worth buying one of these little gems.

The olloclip 3-in–1 lens system for the iPhone 5 costs $69.99 and is available for purchase from the olloclip website.

What's needed is an optical zoom. A wider angle is nice, but fish eye? Increased macro? That's the icing, not the cake.

I like it, as long as it snaps on and off. Easier to carry that than a camera!

Except... what I’d most want added to my iPhone 5 is telephoto.

Looking at the example images on their site it appears they hardly do anything. The macro isn't much better than the standard camera can do. The wide-angle you're hard pressed to tell is even wide-angle. The fishbowl is just barely fish-bowled. You could do most all of this with a free app and not have to carry anything around with you.


You have to try one. I find all 3 lenses definitely add to my photographs. Especially the wide. It easily grabs more than the regular lens. Macro does what it should as well. I don't use the fisheye as much, but it works as described.

Cheers,
Keebler

I noticed that at $50 they offer free shipping. Their 3-piece lens kit is $49, just need to add $1 more to save the $6 on shipping. Did you happen to find any filler items?

Sales tax too for CA :(


The cheapest I found is this for $6:
