Clicking and sharing photos is simple, fast, and fun with the iPhone. However, no matter how good iPhone’s built-in camera is, it doesn’t come close to a high-end professional camera. Thankfully, there are some brilliant camera and photo-editing apps that will help you extend the functionality of your iPhone.

How would you like to take high-resolution images or zoom in on a distant object to grab a great photo? Would you like to make the iPhone camera as good as your DSLR? Tough luck. There’s no apps for that.

However, you do have an option: invest in an iPhone camera or a lens kit to turn your smartphone into a powerful, all-purpose camera. Sure, they make your iPhone look a little funny, but they also make the pictures look awesome.

Here is our list of the ten best iPhone Lens:

1. VicTsing Detachable Red Fisheye Lens ($8.89)

VicTsing Detachable Red Fisheye Lens

    This is a simple lens that attaches to your iPhone through a basic cord. It has a 180-degree fisheye lens. You can capture small objects in detail using this iPhone lens. If you are wondering whether it would be convenient to take pictures after attaching lenses to your iPhone, you can start out with this low-price option. Also, this is one of the few options that provide fisheye lens, which is handy to keep in your arsenal.

    2. Neewer 12.5X Magnifier Zoom Lens ($24.45)

    Neewer 12.5X Magnifier Zoom Lens

      If you are simply looking for a zoom lens to take pictures of distant objects, this product is great. It facilitates micro focus adjustments, making it less likely for images to appear contorted. On the downside, it doesn’t include a tripod or other accessories.

      3. Dot for iPhone ($39-49)

      Dot for iPhone

        Dot is a combination of app and hardware that makes the task of taking and sharing panoramas easy. For photographers who are really into 360-degree pictures, this is a must-have app. Additionally, Dot is easy to affix to the iPhone, and has an attractive design. The negative is in the quality of the lens, which isn’t as capable of high quality images as some other options listed here.

        4. Photojojo Lenses ($20-99)

        Photojo iPhone Lens

          The Photojojo Lens Set includes five different lenses: fisheye, super fisheye, wide & macro, polarizer, and telephoto. You can try out any one, or all of them. A simple adhesive removable metal ring sticks to the phone, and you can attach any of the lenses to it, magnetically. With Photojojo’s easy design, you can turn your iPhone into a professional camera in seconds. On the flip side, these are only simple lenses for decent prices, but nothing extra.

          5. Phocus 3 Lens Bundle ($129.95)

          Phocus 3 Lens Bundle

            This bundle comes with three lenses: telephoto, wide angle, and macro. It also includes a carrying case that ensures easy access to all buttons and ports. The best thing about this bundle is the design: it fits snugly in the hand and makes the process of taking photos using the iPhone less cumbersome. The only problem is that it doesn’t ship with a fisheye lens. This means that you may have to buy it separately in future.

            6. PhoGo Case Kit, Lens and Sunhood ($79.95)

            PhoGo Case Kit, Lens and Sunhood

              If your aim is to turn your iPhone into a complete camera, this bundle has it all: a good sun hood for better screen visibility, and three high quality lenses. The best part is that it is compatible with different brands of lenses and tripods. The downside is its bulkiness. It’s not the best choice if you are simply looking for some clip-on lens.

              7. MCamLite ($129.95)

              MCamLite iPhone Lens

                With its 37mm wide angle/macro lens, MCamLite truly extends the functionality of your iPhone camera. Its interchangeable lenses make the task of shooting awesome photos easier. The steep price may be a negative for some, but the benefits outweigh.

                8. PentaEye f – Pro ($178-$268)

                PentaEye f – Pro

                  For professional iPhoneographers who want to replace their camera equipment with their iPhone, this is one of the simplest options. As the name suggests, it contains a lens dial with a mount for 5 lenses. It also ships with 2 tripod mounts and 3 strap holders. The lens quality is good, and makes the phone look like a sci-fi camera. There’s just one little problem: it makes the iPhone a little heavy and is quite a handful to carry.

                  Advertising

                  9. Olloclip Lens ($69)

                  Olloclip Lens

                    The great thing about the iPhone is that you can simply put it in your pocket. If you have to carry around lots of lenses, it means that you need more space, and you may need to carry a bag. With Olloclip, you can even put the lenses in your pocket: all the lenses are built into one product. If you plan to use your iPhone as an enhanced point-and-shoot camera, Olloclip is ideal. The only potential problem is that there’s no support for tripods or other accessories.

                    10. Scheneider iPro Lens ($229)

                    Scheneider iPro Lens

                      This kit includes high-quality lenses that shoot stunning pictures and are not easily damaged. The three lenses are well designed and include tele, super, and wide lens. There’s a handle that can be affixed to any side of the case. The handle doubles as a tripod mount. The only downside is that it doesn’t have fisheye iPhone lens, and will burn a hole in your pocket.

                      In Summary

                      Whether you want just one lens for better zoom, or want a barrage of lenses that (almost) turn your iPhone into a DSLR, there are more than enough options in the market. These lenses are the perfect investment for serious iPhone photographers, and people who just love to extend the functionality of their mobile, alike.

                      Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

                      Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?
                      Advertising

                      Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

                      Does technology have all the answers?

                      This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

                      Creating technological solutions transparently

                      This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

                      Technology as the connecting tool

                      Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

                      “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
