Review

The Ultimate iPhone Lens Kit includes 3 magnetic lenses i.e a Fisheye lens, a Wide Angle / Macro lens and a 2X Telephoto lens.

Each lens comes with a front lens cap and a couple of detachable magnetic rings with adhesive which can be attached around the camera of just about any phone. One of the magnetic rings is provided exclusively for the iPhone 4/4S camera and flash. Once the ring is attached to the phone, any of the three magnetic lenses can be attached to it. A magnetic charm is also included with each lens for hanging it with the phone, which also serves as a protective cap for rear of the lens.

The 4th lens that comes with the kit is an 8X Telephoto lens with an attachment case exclusively for the iPhone 4/4S. Instead of a magnetic attachment, this long focal lens screws firmly into the adaptor of the included case which surrounds the camera lens.

The included Mini-Tripod stand has a pretty sturdy build as well. It allows for an easy and stable mount of the iPhone 4/4S inside the provided case with 8X Telephoto lens attached. You also have the option to shoot in landscape or portrait mode by simply rotating the mount to that position.

There is also an iPhone Lens Wallet included with the kit which holds all the contents safely in one place. The blue colored wallet’s exterior is made of tough nylon and the inside is lined with soft felt.

The wallet has a dedicated compartment for the 8X Telephoto lens, a built-in magenetic strip to hold the 3 magnetic lenses, a compartment for the iPhone case and another one for the foldable tripod.

Finally and most importantly, all the lenses perform really well especially the Fish eye lens and the 8X Telephoto lens with its tripod. The only drawback I noticed is that when you are using these lenses, they cover the iPhone’s flash making it unusable.

Here are some sample photos I shot with my iPhone 4S using the kit’s lenses:

Bottom Line

The Ultimate iPhone Lens kit from Photojojo is sure to make a handy companion for any iPhoneographer, and with brilliant zoom capability of the 8X Telephoto lens, the included Mini-Tripod and the iPhone attachment case, I can easily give this kit my highest recommendation!

    To me, it’s one of those gadgets that they make it “just because they can”…

    Looks a bit silly to me, to be honest – I mean, look at the size of that package!

    And the quality is poor – check out those 8x telephoto pictures.  Only the small center portion is clear, the sides are a blur.  Most compact cameras with such zoom range can do much better than this.

    Yeah, but not at the price. Just picked this package up myself. Pretty slick. Blocking the flash is mom ever an issue for me. LED fflashes just wash out any life from a picture. I’d rather have the granularity of light compensation then LED flash.

    I’m having trouble with the magnets adhering to the lens and to the ring adhering to my iPhone 3. Is anyone else having this problem?
