First Look: Olloclip 4-in-1 Photo Lens pumps up iPhone pics

1:29 /

This convenient, ultraportable add-on lens updates the company's line with a second macro. You'll also find fish-eye and wide-angle lenses.

Hey, everyone. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET taking a first look of the Olloclip 4-in-1 photo lens for iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5S and the 5th generation of iPod Touch. Now, why is it called 4-in-1? Because you have this little camera lens that clips onto the edge of your iPhone right over the camera module and it has 4 extra lenses. On one side, you've got fish eye and 15x micro. On the other side you've got wide-angle and 10x macro. The 10x macro will allow you to get within 18 mm of your subject and the 15x macro will allow you to get within 13 mm. A little bit different than the previous version, the edges of this are tampered to match the edges of the new iPhone. Now, if you are the kind of person who wants a case, then for $99, you can get a bundled set with especially designed case that has a hinge top that will move over when you wanna slide on the lens. The top will also turn into a physical shutter release. Also in the box is a dual tripod mount that also has a little mount you can use for accessories like a light of microphone. The Olloclip 4-in-1 will come in red, silver and black for all iPhone configurations will cost $69.99 and comes out November 1st. You can look for our first online, the Apple Store and at Best Buy. For CNET, I'm Jessica Dolcourt and this is the Olloclip 4-in-1 photo lens.
