Olloclip rushed out their most popular 4-in-1 lens for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus back when Apple announced the new devices. It offers a fisheye, wide angle, 10x macro, and 15x macro all in a single package that fits onto your rear or front camera (fisheye selfies anyone?). Now, they’ve released an upgrade to their other lens lines.
The Telephoto offers a 2x optical zoom, which you may be thinking, “I can already zoom on my iPhone!”, but the difference is in the digital vs. optical zoom. Your iPhone’s digital zoom simply means pixels are enlarged and the edges are cropped out. With optical zoom, you’re getting a sharper and clearer image, as it’s what is actually being captured from the camera lens. The CPL (Circular Polarizing Lens) is used to help reduce unwanted glare and reflection in images from windows and water.
For the mobile macro photographer, you will want to get your hands on the Macro 3-in-1, offering a 7x, 14x, and 21x magnification. An InstaFocus™ hood is also included which is meant to diffuse light and assist in focusing close up.
