Although you may not believe it possible, your Instagram photos just got better. Olloclip created a 4-in-1 lens attachment for your iPhone that works with all your favorite apps in both photo and video mode, to make your images even better. Fisheye summit selfie, anyone?
The 4-in-1 lens fits in the palm of your hand and quickly connects to your iPhone when you need it. The four lenses included are a Fisheye, Wide-Angle, and 2 Macro lenses in one small, convenient package. If at first you don’t see the exact picture you’re looking for, simply flip it over to switch lenses.
The Fisheye lens captures approximately a 180° field-of-view, while the Wide-Angle lens is great for when you need that extra wide shot, approximately double that of the normal iPhone. The 10x Macro Lens has an approximate 18mm focus distance and the 15x Macro Lens an approximate 12mm focus distance. To access either Macro lens, simply unscrew and remove the Wide-Angle or Fisheye on either side.
Olloclip uses precision ground, coated glass multi-element optics for the lenses. The barrels are made from aircraft grade aluminum using a CNC machine and then anodized. The iPhone attachment itself is made from a soft plastic material to ensure a secure fit every time.
Top tip—be sure to turn off your flash. The Olloclip lens covers the flash and if you have it on, you will see bright spots in your picture. The iPhone flash is not powerful enough to cover the wider angles that the Olloclip provides.
Building off the original 3-in-1 iPhone 4 lens system that resulted from a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign in 2011, Olloclip now offers a wide variety of products, including the Telephoto Lens, Macro 3-in-1 Lens, and Quick-Flip case.
The Olloclip 4-in-1 photo lens retails for $69.99 and is available now from the company website, or from retail stores such as Target and Best Buy.
