Xenvo Pro Lens Kit for iPhone, Samsung, Clarus 15x Macro Lens
This lens kit includes (1) the lens (which is designed such that the full lens is a wider angle than your phone lens), and by removing one layer of it, you can very easily change it into a macro lens (much closer than the macro setting on your phone lens), (2) a clip to attach for easily attaching it to your phone, (3) a lanyard so that you can carry it with you easily, as well as (4) a great little clip light adjustable to three levels which you can either use attached or detached from your phone. This is a great value and a high quality piece of hardware.
Comparing the photos above quickly reveals the difference between Xenvo premium quality lenses and cheap, low-quality alternatives.
Problems with cheap wide-angle lenses:
1. Barrel Distortion - Cheap wide-angle lenses will distort your photos, giving a warped, fisheye appearance; straight lines appear curved.
2. Vignetting - Poor quality construction and design of cheap wide-angle lenses results in unwanted darkening of corners in photos.
Benefits of Xenvo TruView wide-angle lens:
1. Rectilinear Correction - Xenvo wide-angle lenses feature additional glass elements that correct unwanted lens distortion so straight lines appear straight.
2. No Vignetting - High-quality, German optical-grade glass provides crystal clear images from edge to edge with no dark corners.
Nice tool for taking some more interesting iPhone shots. The wide angle lens gets fairly clear shots. Up close you can get fisheye like effects. The macro lens performs even better IMO - really nice crisp photos with a very shallow depth of field, just the way it should be.
