Phone cameras can be handy devices, but at the same time they often lack what a regular digital camera can do due to the lack of a decent sized lens and only having digital zoom. For this reason these cool little magnetic lenses have been created which are compatible with the Apple iPhone as well as many other camera phones.
Three lenses are available in this magnetic lens range. You have the option of buying a wide angle lens, a telephoto lens or a fish eye lens. A magnetic mount can be attached to your mobile phone if the case isn’t already made of metal, and then you simply snap a lens on to the back when needed. What this does is give the mobile phone camera a bit more to work with in terms of lenses and thus, helps to create more better effects and in turn, better pictures.
I think the idea is fantastic and hopefully these little lenses will be made compatible with more phones as they can be very handy to have around.
