Thursday Tech Tip – iPhone Camera Zoom Accessories
I purchased this really great accessory this week on advice from Tyler Lu. I had been reluctant to try any of those goofy iPhone camera accessories you often see at those shady mall kiosks. However, I noticed Tyler taking some really cool pictures with his iPhone and asked him about it. Turns out he was using one of those same odd-looking accessories I had avoided. He showed me a few sample pictures he had taken and I was impressed. At the price of $10 on average I thought it would be worth a shot.
In the package that I purchased you get a fish eye lens, wide-turn macro, and micro lens. I have been impressed with the quality of the images so far and especially the macro shots. Below is a fish eye lens example of a picture I took of a coworker. I recommend everyone get one of these accessories to extend the capabilities of their stock smartphone camera lenses. The lenses are attached by magnets and can be removed easily when not in use. They even fit nicely on your key chain. I am especially excited about using these lenses since I am challenging myself to take a picture a day, everyday, for the entire year.
