Olloclip iPhone 5 3-in-one camera lens review

olloclip iphone 5

I recently got the Olioclip iPhone 3-in-one camera len. I thought that since I’ve been using my iPhone 5 for taking shots of anything that catches my attention, I might as well extend its camera capability. So I got the Olloclip after reading great reviews from those who’ve used it.

What is Olloclip iPhone 5 lens?

To cut a long story short, I got my Olloclip iPhone 5 3-in-one lens  a couple of weeks ago. And true enough as published, it’s a great iPhone 5 camera accessory that adds value to the phone’s camera. The Olloclip, for those who are not aware is a small piece of ware which you clip on to your iPhone 5. Specifically you attach it on on the camera part to give you three more type of lens for the iPhone 5’s camera.

So with Olloclip iPhone 5 lens attached, you can take macro, fish eye and wide angle shots. Of these three lenses, the fish eye is probably going to be the most used for you and in fact, is the best among the three lenses.

But that doesn’t mean that the Macro and Wide-Angle shots are not as good. In fact, both lens take great photos. The Wide Angle allows you more room when framing your landscape shot by expanding its coverage. The Macro Lens on the other takes extra effort to master its use to get the best macro shot. That’s because you really have to be as close as possible to your subject for the lens to work properly. Once you’ve established the correct distance of the lens to your subject, the Macro lens will work its wonder and give you a great macro shot.

Performance and minor flaw Olloclip iPhone 5 3-in-one-lens

I must say that for the several times that I’ve used the Olloclip, I have no regrets in buying it. As I said, my iPhone 5 has been my point-and-shoot camera since I got it. So, it is but fitting that I add some variety to the shots I take using my iPhone 5. This, I successfully accomplished using the Olloclip.

One flaw that I find on the Olloclip iPhone 5 lens is that it’s a bit loose when clipped to my iPhone 5, Hence, there’s a tendency for the clip to move easily and disalign itself from the camera.

Other than that, I have nothing more negative to say about this iPhone 5 camera. If you’re like me who use your iPhone 5 rigorously, the Olloclip will make you use it even more.
