With the Pro models of current iPhone generations, you get a choice of three camera lenses for smartphone photography. But what if you are with a iPhone SE or want to take nice photos with an older Apple cell phone? There are various attachments and clips for this! These can be equipped with different lenses for the iPhone camera: macro, wide angle, fisheye, zoom and more. There are also ND filters, Star filters, CPL filters and other accessories for professional-looking photos without much post-processing. In this article you will find a current selection (as of May 2nd, 2022).
You can buy a clip with an interchangeable lens from the accessory provider APEXEL. The whole thing is delivered in a practical transport bag so that nothing gets scratched or lost when you take the photo aids with you. A total of six lenses are included: 140° wide angle, 205° fisheye, 25x macro, ND32 filter, CPL filter and star filter. The individual lenses are simply screwed into the clip, which is then attached to the mobile phone. However, there are no molds, covers or templates that help with precise positioning - so here you have to start the camera app first and then align everything. On the product page there are other offers.
Here you get fewer lenses, but one is a 22x zoom telephoto lens, which can also be used as a small telescope - e.g. B. for bird watching. In addition to the telephoto lens and the required clip, the set also includes a 0,62x wide-angle lens, a 25x macro lens, a 235° fish eye lens and a mobile phone tripod. On the product page you will also find a 4-in-1 set that is cheaper and comes with a lens for the kaleidoscope effect in addition to the wide-angle, fisheye and macro lenses. All this is in a practical transport bag.
