With photography becoming a more accessible hobby, novice enthusiasts can become more acquainted with the craft through ever-evolving smart phone cameras. The iPhone’s camera received a substantial buff last year with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. These newer models tote 12-megapixels, as well as an increased f/1.8 aperture camera on the rear (vs f/2.2 on the iPhone 6). Throw in a six-element lens, quad-LED True Tone flash, 4K video recording, and optical image stabilization, giving both versions of the iPhone 7 one of the best smartphone cameras on the market.
If you’re looking to delve deeper into the world of photography, a popular multifaceted tool like the iPhone 7 has an increasing amount of options for accessories. Case in point; The olloclip Core Lens Set.
Broaden your shot variety with lenses that attach to the front and back cameras of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The Core Lens Set delivers amazing image quality, and user versatility with improved optics; Fisheye, Super-Wide and Macro15x lenses are combined to offer a diverse range of options for shooting, editing and sharing unique photos in an instant. The Connect™ interchangeable lens system grants the user creative customization in finding their perfect lens set for a variety of improved shots, and yes, even selfies. The lenses are screen protector friendly and work with all camera apps. It’s even great for video, time-lapse, panoramas and 360° VR photos.
With camera lenses ranging from hundreds to thousands of dollars, the olloclips core’s $100 price point is relatively inexpensive for its level of quality. Olloclip also has other lenses that supplement the Core Set. We recommend the olloclip especially to backpackers and vacationers needing to consolidate their accessories without sacrificing versatility. DSLR cameras are great, but who wants to lug an extra 10 lbs everywhere?
For their innovation, olloclip was given the honorary title of Small Business of the Year by The Consumer Electronics Association. Desire to express a strong advancement of art in communities is what really spins the olloclip creative wheel. “At olloclip, we built a brand and culture around the idea of respecting mobility while inspiring creative expression”. Said their representative during the announcement of a joint venture with PicsArt hosting the first worldwide photowalk in April. Useful tech makes life a little easier, and innovative tech does all that while building communities. It’s no doubt olloclip shares that notion as exhibited by their affordable creations.
