    Good lenses, no instructions, December 6, 2013

    I’m no camera expert, but these lenses seem to work fairly well. I uploaded a few images if anyone needs proof. The wide angle lens consists of the macro lens attached to a second lens. Take off the second lens, and you’re left with the macro. I’m not sure that everyone realized this, and that may be why people aren’t getting good macro images. No instructions were included, which doesn’t help.

    Also, my phone is already pretty thick, so the lenses don’t really fit if I have a case on. I saw some reviews where people said it worked alright with their phones and cases, though. Just keep in mind that a case may or may not get in the way.

    Finally, at least on my phone, I can see a bit of the edges of the lens when I’m using the wide angle. If I’m very careful with centering the lens, they’re almost unnoticeable in the corners of the image. I guess this will vary based on your camera and whether or not you have a case. Of course, the image can just be cropped.

    A pocket full of fun for the price of a small pizza., June 15, 2013

    I’ve been a professional fashion/advertising photographer and yes, I have the big guns (Canons, of course). But I have to admit that I’m rather amazed at what can be produced by a common iPhone these days. Being used to spending five or more figures on lenses for my professional equipment, I was pretty interested in what capabilities I could gain for my iPhone for basically the price of a small pizza. After exhaustively comparing all the offerings online, I placed my bet on this set by CamKix and I wasn’t disappointing. The images were pretty decent – enough to amaze my friends with lesser standards. Well worth the $15 strictly for the added pocket full of fun.

    Note. I had one small dissapointment, which was an imperfection on the glass coating where apparently a tiny bubble caused a clear spot. It doesn’t perceptively affect the images as the focal length is beyond the glass. No biggee. At these prices, these things are practically disposable. These things would make good stocking stuffers come Christmas.
