Phones these days come armed with a diverse range of lens these days. From telephoto lens to macro lens, it seems like they have everything covered. But the truth is, mobile photography has grown in the past few years, and with it, phones have evolved.
iPhone 13 Pro, for example, comes with a Telephoto lens, a wide-angle lens, and a 3x optical zoom lens. While these lenses alone are impressive themselves, there are ways to augment the capability of your lens.
Today I will be going through some of the best lens add-ons for your iPhone. These lenses allow you to enhance your capabilities by just putting a new lens in front of your camera lens.
5. CamKix Universal 3-in-1 Lens kit
This lens kit is recommended for people on a tight budget. The three-lens kit includes a macro lens, a wide-angle lens, and a fisheye lens. Macro lenses are great for shooting very close-up shots of things like flowers or insects.
A wide-angle lens, on the other hand, allows you to capture a wider picture. The fisheye lens is an even wider image capturing lens. It is sometimes also known as an ultra-wide angle lens. The lens kit also comes with a carry pouch so you can safely carry these lenses. It also comes with a clip mechanism to properly secure these lenses in front of the main camera lens.
4. Nelomo Universal HD Camera Lens Kit
The Nelomo Universal HD camera lens kit is very similar to the CamKix kit. It also offers 3 lenses: a super wide-angle lens, a 15x macro lens, and a 230-degree fisheye lens. The Nelomo Universal kit is a little costlier than the CamKix Universal kit, but it comes with a more sturdy carrying case and a cleaning cloth.
It is important to note that this kit clamps to phones that are between 7mm to 10mm in thickness. Other than that, these lenses should be compatible with almost all kinds of smartphones out there.
3. Apexel 36x telephoto
Do you like to shoot things that are very far away from you? If your answer is yes, then the Apexel 36x telephoto lens is for you. The kit comes with a single 36X optical zoom telephoto lens that will transform your regular iPhone lens into a long-distance shooter.
For a telephoto lens, the price is pretty reasonable for the Apexel 36x. It also comes with its own mini tripod to support the lens when you are shooting. While the Apexel 36x supports a wide range of the latest smartphones and iPhones 6 and above, it is still a good idea to check out the specifications of this lens before you buy.
2. Moment Fisheye Lens
Moment is known for making excellent camera lenses for both iPhones and Samsung phones. Their fisheye lens offers a spectacular 170-degree vision. While moment lens can be a little on the costlier side for camera lenses, they do provide excellent picture quality.
The Moment fisheye lens gives coverage of a traditional 14mm fisheye lens. This lens is great for photographers that like to take pictures of interiors and architecture. As it provides a wide coverage even when you are standing very close to the subject of your photograph.
1. Moment Tele Lens
The Moment Tele lens is made specifically for the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Again, as with most Moment lenses, the Moment Tele Lens is on the pricey side. But it truly delivers on your investment as pictures from the Tele lens are really beautiful. The Moment Tele lens also requires a separate case for it to mount correctly on the phone.
This concludes our little guide on the best lens add-ons you can get for your iPhone. While lens add-ons can’t go beyond the limitations of your camera lens itself. They can enhance their capabilities to give you a richer photography experience.
