For a lot of folks, the cellular phone had replaced the purpose and take as an “everyday” camera. We have it inside our pocket every single day, we carry it everywhere, and the caliber of te images has finally reached an amount that is at the very least “snapshot” acceptable for most everyone. There are disadvantages to numerous phone cameras and lack of manual controls, fundamental contacts ( no move, limited FOV, no macro, and so forth), and sub-par ergonomics probably top the list. While none of these may truly be solved until phone producers want them to be, for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s people, the lens issue now may be addressed together with the great Olloclip.
The Olloclip is just a system that provides three different contact options to you and for your iPhone, wide angle, fish eye, and macro. Many of them have been split up parts and connected via magnet stickers or other irritating and unreliable designs, while there have been other item contacts for thath iPhone. I’ve held a few and found them to be nearly useless. The wonder of the Olloclip is a single piece that slides within the corner of your phone in a second and removes just as easily. The Macro lens is part of the wide angle lens and is accessed by unscrewing the part of it off.
The macro lens applies about 10 times magnification and lets you focus the iphone within 12-15mm of your subject. To get to the macro lens, simply unscrew the wide angle lens that is attached to it. Meanwhile, by using the fisheye lens you can capture approximately a 180-degree field of view. The wide angele lens provides approximately double that of iPhone’s standard field of view.
The lens system is also built to stand up to longterm use. The olloclip uses precision ground glass multi-element optics for the lenses. The barrels are made from aircraft-grade aluminum using a CNC machine and then anodized. The Iphone 5 attachment is made from a soft plastic material that ensures a secure fit everytime to the iPhone. And you can use the lenses in combination with any apps that utilize the rear-facing camera on the iPhone 5. The olloclip is small enough to fit into a pocket when you’re not using it, and comes with a microfiber carry case that doubles as a lens cleaner.
