A year or so ago I was introduced to the Olloclip, a device that slips onto the corner of your iPhone gives you a choice of 3 lenses to take pictures with (macro, wide angle and fisheye). Recently at MacWorld Expo 2012 in San Francisco I was reintroduced to the device and given one to review. I used this thing each day taking some wonderful pictures of the festivities going on at MacWorld. I loved it so much I gave the Olloclip Best of Show for Beatweek Magazine. I turned my friend Jeff Turner from OC WordPress onto Olloclip and he’s been taking some amazing shots with it. Like I said earlier, the device is dead simple to use it has two sets of lenses on the front and back of it: the larger is a Fish Eye, the smaller a wide angle. When you remove the wide angle lens by twisting it off you will find the macro lens which works quite well with a steady hand.
This is a shot of a flower I took like at Disneyland recently:
I took a great shot of my sister-in-law’s wedding ring as well:
It’s amazing the quality you get from this great little $69.99 device. The fish eye lens is pretty impressive too:
A picture of my daughter Jessalyn very close up makes for a funny picture.
Photos I took at the classic car show.
Like I said for $69.99 you can’t beat the price, it’s simple, easy to fit in your pocket and just works. I love it and carry it with me wherever I go.
Where to buy?: The Olloclip comes with a carrying bag and lens caps for both lenses. It retails for $69.99. (affiliate link)
