Olloclip for iphone 5 – review and test

If you’ve ever heard of the phrase ‘the best camera is the one thats on you’, then you’ve most likely heard of the word iphoneography. And as we use our camera phones more and more, we struggle to get images which stand out from the crowd.

This is were the olloclip comes in. it makes your iPhone camera more than just a camera! It gives you the ability to push your creativity to whole new level without spending hundreds on expensive camera gear.

During my time with the olloclip i was able to get closer to subjects thanks to the macro lens and taking group photos in a small confined area wasn’t a problem anymore.

The overall construction of the lens adapter is pretty decent, made out of mostly metal.

When it comes to optics i found it to be pretty average. The centre was sharp the fisheye lens suffered from a lot of softness on the edges, as you’d expect from a fisheye lens. The wide angle lens is better but still losses some sharpness towards the edges.

Overall i think the lens is a little overpriced, especially for the quality of the optics but still a must have addition to any iphoneographer out there.
