The olloclip has made fame and fortune with its special lenses for iPhones that make the joy of the notorious smartphone photographers (myself included). There was only one problem: because of the differences in the formats and positioning of the cameras in each model, you had to invest in a new set of lenses every time you changed hands. Not anymore.
The Californian company is announcing an accessory called Multi-Device Clip that, as the name says, allows you to use the Connect X lens system (originally released for the iPhone X a few months ago) on basically any device, with a case or without case, by means of an adjustable clip.
Olloclip Multi-Device Clip
According to the manufacturer, the maximum thickness of the accessory is 12mm, so smartphones with more robust cases, such as the OtterBox, can be out of play – otherwise, almost any modern device with “common” cases can take advantage of the new creation of olloclip. It is good to note that you can position the lenses in both the rear and selfie cameras, by the way.
The lenses of the Connect X line, just to remember, are as follows:
Wide angle, with angle of view of more than 120º;
Super wide angle, with a viewing angle of 155º;
Telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom;
Fish-eye + macro, with spherical effect of 180º and magnification almost microscopic;
Macro 7x + 14x, with detailed enlargements;
Macro 21x, with almost microscopic enlargements without distortions.
The Multi-Device Clip will begin shipping next month for $ 60, which already includes one of the lenses above. The other lenses can be bought in olloclip kits or separately, for US $ 45 each. Cool, huh?
