Remember the days of carrying that Pentax K1000? Heavy, but durable and versatile.
Actually it’s hard for me to remember even using film. And I’m about to dump the digital camera since I always carry an iPhone anyway. But that little lens can’t do everything. Now comes the Photojojo Lens Set including a Fisheye, Telephoto, Wide Angle and Macro Lenses. The Telephoto works great, though I’m not as impressed with the Macro, and I have particular affection for the Wide angle since I’m so used to using a virtual 28mm.
My iPhone shoots like it’s a standard virtual 55mm. Lenses are crafted out of sturdy aluminum and outfitted with thick, high-clarity glass. Heavy to the hand, but not too heavy on the iPhone. Each lens set comes with adhesive removable metal rings. The ring sticks to the back of any smart phone, and the Photojojo Lens attaches magnetically. Snap it on and off in an instant! Also included are two extra-strong rings specially designed for the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5.
On my iPhone, installation of the adhesive was a snap. Make sure you get it aligned right the first time. The lenses snap on and off with a heavy, reassuring “click.” Check out the Photojo website for incredible range of clever smartphone accessories: lights, clamps, tripods, Bikepod, Crankerator battery chargers and more oddities..
And for you old-time film buffs, admire the film canister salt and pepper sets, the lens shaped coffee mugs, etc.
