Clicking through the Photojojo store, it’s easy to get lost in their sea of nifty photography gadgets. Now, they’re introducing their own series of add-on smartphone camera lenses called Iris.
There are three lenses in the collection, including a macro, a wide-angle, and a fisheye in case the wide-angle isn’t wide enough for you. Rather than relying on a specific phone case or a sketchy sliding mount system, the Iris lenses actually use a simple cord that wraps around the phone and holds the lenses securely in place. That’s a big plus if you’re already using a case you like and don’t want to change it for an accessory lens. Attached to the cord is a lens carrier for transporting the lens itself.
The lenses are made with optical grade glass settled into aluminum housings, so they’re meant to be high-quality rather than just a toy to mess around with. As people take smartphone photography more seriously, accessory lenses like this have been growing in appeal.
The lenses go up for pre-sale on November 19th, but you can sign up on the Photojojo page to get first access to the orders.
