The camera aboard the iPhone is probably the most widely used camera in the world at the moment. So it’s no surprise that photographers want to expand their possibilities by adding accessories. We’ve been testing a couple of add-on lenses for the iPhone and are fairly impressed with the results.
Obviously, there’s no ‘mount’ for your iPhone. Instead, a glued washer sticks to the back of the iPhone around the camera lens. The lenses are then held on to the washer by magnets.
Far and away the most impressive, and most fun, is the fisheye lens. As you can see from the images, the lens successfully converted the camera into a wide-angle shooter and we can imagine all kinds of creative types will love this.
On the downside, the macro lens doesn’t really seem to add much over the standard lens, and the washer and lens assembly does have a tendency to move around slip off if you’re not careful.
