Once the domain of much larger cameras, the olloclip 3-way gives iPhone 4S owners three interchangeable lenses in one compact little accessory. In another step toward making mobile phones the benchmark for casual picture-taking, the $69 olloclip attaches itself to the corner of Apple's iPhone and offers a fish-eye, macro and wide-angle lens, all in one.
Design and Setup
Because it clamps onto the corner of the iPhone, the olloclip can only be used with the iPhone 4 or 4S's rear camera. Also, you'll have to remove any case you have protecting the phone.
In wide-angle mode, we captured much more of our surroundings than normal - twice as much, precisely. Broad, sweeping shots of the Manhattan skyline looked good as we shot from both the street and from above.
Small, sturdy and simple, the Olloclip is a must-have for anyone who enjoys taking photos with their phone. It essentially triples the types of images you can make, and does so for $69. While we wish we didn't have to remove our iPhone 4s' case, we liked the ability to switch from fish eye to macro in seconds. Try and do that with your point-and-shoot.
