First Look: The Ztylus 4-in-1 lens case puts a new twist on smartphone photos

1:37 /

This revolving lens case takes a different approach to the typical smartphone camera lens accessory. Four lens add-ons are packed in one attachment, and it snaps off when you don't want the bulk.

[MUSIC] Hi, I'm Bridget Carey with CNET with the first look at a new type of accessory for your phone. It is called the Ztylus with a Z. This is an attachment to give your phone camera different types of lenses. Now, if you have some [UNKNOWN] with photography you might wanna put a fish eye lens on your iPhone camera. Or maybe a micro lens or a macro lens. This has four lenses in one accessory. What it is, it is a revolver lens attachment that you stick on the back of a case, and depending on the kinda effect you want. You just pop a particular lens in and out. There are actually four types of lenses packed into this disk. Along with a fish eye lens, there's also a wide angle and a macro lens and a polariser. So that way it could take the glare off of objects like windows or car hoods. And when you're not using it, you can either just lock it so it's stuck to the back or you can pop the whole thing off. Because let's be honest, it's a little bulky. When you do pop it off, there's a plain circle that you can pop right on and it has a little kickstand too. So here is how it works on pricing. You're gonna buy the case and the lens separately. The case itself is $35 and the lens is $65, making the whole package $100. Which isn't that expensive for something that has four different types of lens effects. And it's not just for the iPhone, there's also models for the Samsung Galaxy phone's and the Galaxy Note as well. For CNET, I'm Bridget Carey with your first look at the Ztylus. [MUSIC]
