Olloclip 4 in 1 lens and Case

The Olloclip 4 in 1 Photo Lens and Case is an add on accessory for the iPhone5/5s. The Olloclip lens system add 4 different lenses to augment the already robust camera on the iPhone.

The package retails for P4,950 and comes with the Olloclip Flip case, the lens system, and a pouch. It also comes with an attachment to fit the 5th Gen iPod Touch plus a Pro Photo Adapter. The Pro Photo Adapter easily slides into the bottom of the case and includes a Tripod mount and a Cold shoe mount for different accessories.

The lens system includes a Wide Angle lens paired with a 10x Macro lens on one side and a Fish-eye paired with a 15x Macro lens on the other.  The pouch keeps the system secure when you put it in your pockets. Simply unscrewing the lenses will reveal the paired macro lenses below so you get 4 lens in one small package. The wide angle and fish-eye lenses come with a rubber lens cover to give added protection.

The Flip case is not a required add but is a nice thing to have to ensure a little protection and simultaneously ensure the easy sliding in of the Olloclip. I have heard of the case breaking after 6 months of use, not that surprising as it’s thin and the frequent flipping would be sure to cause a strain on the plastics.

The Olloclip uses precision ground, coated glass for the optics and anodized aircraft grade aluminum for the barrels. Build quality is very high with the clip fitting snugly on the iPhone.

I recommend using the Olloclip without a screen protector as this has happened to me twice.

Here are some photo samples using the Olloclip 4 in 1 iPhone Lens System

I had the most fun using the fish eye for some creative effects. The macro lenses are a bit hard to focus unless you get in real close, 18mm for the 10x and 12mm for the 15x. The wide angle lens induces a bit of distortion especially in the edges but you’ll love the ability to fit in more people when taking group photos.

If you uses your iPhone sans any case then you can get just the lens system for P3,250.

The Olloclip 4 in 1 Photo Lens and Case is available at all Beyond the Box and Digital Walker stores.
