As a mom I rely on my phone to snap quick pictures of my kids when my dslr just isn’t on hand. I also rely on it as a blogger when I head out to events and don’t want to have to carry my bulky camera bag around. The one drawback to using the phone’s camera is that what you see is what you get. There is no changing the lens like on a DSLR for a new perspective.
That is unless you have an olloclip®; an easy-to-use clip-on lens system previously only available for iPhone. Well guess what? It is now available for the Samsung® Galaxy® S5 and S4 and I couldn’t be more excite since I have a beautiful gold Samsung S5 that I love to bits. Now I have a reason to love it even more!
The latest olloclip 4-IN-1 Photo Lens lets Samsung Galaxy users expand their mobile photography with four lenses (fisheye, wide-angle and two macros – 10x and 15x) in one small package weighing less than an ounce. It easily clips on over the Samsung Galaxy quickly and easily, there is nothing to install and changing the lenses couldn’t be simpler.
I love that with my oloclip I can easily change my lense in the same way I can with my DSLR camera but my phone with lense still easily fits into my back pocket or purse so it is still convenient and unobtrusive to carry around and use.
To change between the fisheye and wide-angle you just shift the lense you want to use over the Samsung Galaxy Camera. To use the macro lenses you just unscrew either the fisheye or wide-angle lens. The lenses are also labelled so it is easy to tell which one you want.
The olloclip photo lenses are crafted with advanced coated glass and multi-element optics and aircraft grade anodized aluminum. Just looking and holding the lens system you can tell that it is high quality.
Fisheye lens – change perspective with ultra-wide vision capturing, approximately a 180° field of view (Unedited Photo for Comparison)
Wide-Angle lens – capture it all with near double the normal field of view (Unedited Photo for Comparison)
10x Macro lens – get detail oriented with 10X magnification with an 18mm focus distance
15x Macro lens – go for the ultimate close up with 15X magnification with a 12mm focus distance
Here is my living room shot with my DSLR with the standard lens kit with a focal length of 18 mm just to compare overall field of view and photo quality.
The olloclip 4-IN-1 Photo Lenses for the Samsung Galaxy S5 and S4 are priced at $69.99 USD and can be purchased at http://www.olloclip.com or through major retailers. More information on the full olloclip product lineup of mobile photography tools is available at www.olloclip.com.
