What is it about macro photography that captivates us? The best macro photography clearly shows the finest detail that the human eye can’t see as distinctly on its own. They are breathtaking and awe-inspiring. And instead of encouraging us to look up to see the big picture, the newest 4-in-1 Lens by Olloclip will entice photographers to get up close and personal and see the smallest detail in every picture. Often. It’s totally addicting. But of course if you still want to see the big picture you can do that with the Wide-Angle and Fisheye lenses.
The newest Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens provides 2 macro lenses (10x and 15x magnification) and a Fisheye and Wide-Angle in a superbly sublime design that weighs in under an ounce. The quality of the macro photographs seriously makes me question whether I can forgo that expensive “L” series 100mm macro lens for my Canon 5D Mark iii.
The original olloclip offered a 3-in-1 solution with the Fisheye, Wide-Angle and 10x Macro lens. Ever since that lens came on the market it has had a serious legion of devoted followers who Instagram and hashtag #olloclip. Today there are nearly half a million Instagram olloclip hashtags. Proof that people love the details.
The 4-in-1 olloclip comes in its own drawstring, microfiber pouch that also acts as a lens cleaner to get those fingerprints and smudges cleared off. The pouch carries the pieces you won’t need depending on what lens you’re going to use. It’s so simple to carry in your purse, pocket or satchel.
The olloclip lenses are made from precision ground, coated glass multi-element optics. The barrels of the olloclip are made from aircraft-grade aluminum.
In addition there is an optional iPhone Quick-Flip case made from soft plastic that hugs the iPhone and protects it from accidental drops and scratches. This clever case design allows you to flip the quick-flip which exposes the camera corner on your iPhone in order to attach the olloclip. When it is rotated 180-degrees it becomes an instant shutter release. Smart.
I am able to keep a TILT HD screen protector on my iPhone 5S without any problems when using the olloclip. That’s a huge plus for me since I always safeguard my iPhone as I have been known to drop it on more than one occasion (all of the time). So, with the olloclip 4-in-1 lens safely in my purse, my ollo Quick-Flip case protecting my iPhone 5S and my TYLT HD screen protector I am set.
But wait, there’s more! Included with the olloclip Quick-Flip case is a Pro-Photo adapter that allows you to add accessories such as a tripod, additional lights or a microphone. With the incredible iPhone 5S camera you have a complete solution to create incredible photos and videos. There’s nothing stopping you now.
