Are you satisfied with your iPhone’s lens? Does it meet your demands when you try to shot some unusual photos? If you are passionate about taking extraordinary photos using your iPhone, you may consider to equip it with third-party lens accessories.
On this Tuesday the popular smartphone accessory vendor Olloclip announced the launch of Connect X, its new mobile lens system designed exclusively for iPhone X. Your can utilize the lens system to enhance your field-of-view on iPhone X, to shoot wider and closer than with the built-in camera alone. But there is a point you may be aware: when you apply the Olloclip Connect X lens, your iPhone X’s FaceID scanner will be blocked, and you will need to enter the PIN code to unlock your Phone.
The new Connect X system is comprised of six lenses: Super-Wide, Ultra-Wide, Fisheye+Macro 15x, Telephoto, Macro 14x+7x, and Macro 21x. Those lens are now available to purchase separately at Olloclip’s website, with prices ranging from $59.99 to $79.99. Besides, Olloclip teams up a Photography Box set which include three lenses for $100: a super wide-angle lens, a fisheye lens, and a 15x macro lens.
The new mount in the Connect X system allows you to use the add-on lenses with either the front or the rear cameras of iPhone X. After holding the clasp, you can press the middle button to easily remove and replace each lens. Meanwhile, the mount can well accommodate iPhone’s screen protectors and complemented with Olloclip’s own shell, which is priced at $29.99. In addition, the company also announced a more affordable single-lens Connect mount for the iPhone 7/8 or 7/8 Plus models.
Olloclip has been working on the add-on iPhone camera lens since 2011. This time it comes a little late to push products to the market. Many other accessory makers, like Moment, Bitplay, Ztylus, and Sandmarc, have made kits available for iPhone X.
