Santa brought me this little gadget, olloclip 4-in-1 lens for iPhone 5s, for Christmas. It’s now a permanent member in my mobile photography kit.
This 4-in-1 lens has:
- 15x macro lens let you get very close to the object – approx. 12mm focus distance!
- 10x macro lens gives you about 18mm focus distance
- fisheye lens captures the about 180 degree field of view and creates the cutest picture of your dog’s face
- wide-angle lens doubles the original iPhone’s field of view so it’s good for landscape pictures.
Some sample photos I snapped: (the full cake one is not taken with this lens – it’s just for comparison purpose to see how macro the other pictures are.)
Taking photos helps me seeing beauty in the everyday ordinary things. Do you like taking photos?
I really like my iPhone5s camera. It handles the low-light situations well. I like its large aperture lense and the burst mode for moving target like my baby nephew and my dogs inside the house. Its slow-mo video camera is fun too.
I think iPhone5s renders the best colour in the low-light situations. Since we had 3 different mobile phones at the dinner table last night, here’s a quick comparison of the 3 cellphones’ candid shots inside a not-so-bright restaurant:
FYI: iPhone 4S has F2.4 lense. Both iPhone 5s and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 have F2.2 lense. The smaller the F-stop number, the bigger the aperture. i.e. The camera with the smaller F-stop number is better for low-light situation.
I’m not doing a detailed comparision since there are many really detailed comparison of different mobile cameras on the web, such as the one on PhoneArena
I really love my new iPhone 5s Camera! However, I must note that being a super Apple fan, I was pretty impressed by the Samsung Galaxy Note 3’s technology behind the phone. Apple should be concerned.
What do you think about the 3 cellphone photos?
