Product review: Olloclip 3-in-1 lens for iPhone

Olloclip lens for iphone

Olloclip 3-in-1 lens for iPhone, available in white, black or red

My fascination with macro photography has changed forever with the Olloclip lens that clips to iPhone 4/4S/5 in three ways – a fish eye lens, a wide angle lens and my favourite, the macro lens! It’s brilliantly compact, easy to clip on and change between the thee lenses.

My only irritation (and it’s not the Olloclip) is the screen protector film lifting once in a while when you’re clipping the Olloclip over it.

Of course, professional photographers will need tripods, lighting and all kinds of plans, but since most of us get around every day with a camera in hand, we record life on the run. It’s never going to trump a professional shoot in quality and composition but it can be used to great effect, for both business and personal records. As I mostly take macro photos of flowers or plants, I often have no breath left by the time I take the photo! You really have to hold the phone dead still for a while to focus, compose the shot, etc. and if it’s a moving object… well, just take a lot of pics.. :-)  And have fun!

I post a link to my Tadaa page again – most of my photos are there.  Let me know where I can see yours.

You can buy yours at Kalahari for around R888

Here’s a video showing off the Olloclip:
