LAS VEGAS--Olloclip, a Kickstarter project in 2011, has come up with an easy way to get some fancy lens effects on your iPhone camera, for a fairly reasonable price.

While the Olloclip wasn't launched here at CES 2012, it's definitely a product to keep an eye on in 2012.

The approach is simple--one piece of equipment, three different lenses for your iPhone 4 or 4S.

Applying the Olloclip and switching between lenses is a breeze, as you will see in the video below, in which Olloclip CEO Patrick O'Neill gives us a rundown of how to use it.
