olloclip Review #olloclip
I love my iPhone. I use it for so many reasons – as an alarm clock, to write shopping lists/notes, texting, and especially for taking pictures. I have quite a few cameras in my home that are collecting dust because I use my iPhone for taking pictures almost 100% of the time. Now I have some neat accessories for my iPhone camera from olloclip that elevate my picture-taking to a whole new level.
I received a 4-In-1 Photo Lens + Case in clear from olloclip for review. This set includes a 4-in-1 lens system (fisheye, wide-angle, and 2 macro lenses), a Quick-Flip case specially designed to allow for easy access to your camera’s eye, a removable Pro-Photo Adapter for attaching a tripod or other accessory, and a neat little drawstring bag to help you transport your lenses (along with lens covers for added protection). This set also includes an adapter for use with the iPod Touch 5th generation. There’s a free app in the app store to use in conjunction with these lenses as well.
The case quickly and easily snapped on to my phone. I really like the Quick-Flip function of this case – it makes it so simple to just flip and attach the lenses. I loved playing with the features of each of the lenses.
I especially love the macro lenses – I couldn’t believe the level of detail I was able to get on things such as blades of grass in my yard. It was really fun and exciting to be able to take such fantastic pictures.
The fisheye lens is really fun too – you can capture so much with just one click.
I’m excited to slip these lenses into my evening bag for my cousin’s wedding this fall – should make for some great family pictures! It’s amazing how something so small can make such a big difference in how you take photos and the end quality of those photos. You should check out the gallery section of their website – there are some amazing photos featured that were created using olloclip lenses.
The set I was sent for review sells for $69.99 on the olloclip site. If you’ve ever thought about picking up a product like this, I highly recommend olloclip – great quality at a great price, and very user-friendly.
The olloclip products give amateur and professional photographers alike the ability to use their iPhone, iPod, iPad, or Samsung Galaxy S to capture and share fantastic photos with ease. More information on the full olloclip product lineup of mobile photography tools is available on their website. You can also find them on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram, YouTube, and their blog.
