Olloclip Lens for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus

Apple’s  iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cameras are already pretty good and now we have these lens set. Olluclip just launched three new interchangeable lens kit. All the three new lens kits work with both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. These new lenses maintain all the best features that we saw in its award-winning predecessor.

Different Versions

There are three Olloclip lens kits available for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus namely:

  1. Core Lens Set: The Core lens set includes 3 different lenses Super-Wide, Fisheye, and Macro15x. This kit offers a variety of shooting options, ranging from super wide shots to close-up macro images. The Super Wide lens gives 120-degree coverage and reveals more of the scene than the iPhone’s built-in lens does. The Fisheye lens gives 180-degree coverage. This lens gives you a perspective from a fishbowl with a hemisphere-like view. The Macro lens magnifies the subject by 15 times and gives you a close shot without losing focus.
  2. Active Lens Set: The Active lens set has 2 lenses 2x Telephoto and Ultra-wide. The 2x Telephoto brings the subject twice as close and makes it easier for you to capture the subject without actually getting closer to it. The Ultra-wide lens offers 155-degree coverage. With this lens, hand movement is reduced, which means there is a better chance of clicking a sharp shot. This kit is extremely useful for landscape, travel, or action photography.
