    This is not to make Veevs feel bad, but to show what Olloclip can do. Taken using Camera+, edited with Clarity and Snapseed.

    Thanks Jilly! I've always wanted to do a shot like this! I've even got a little something in mind for the macro lens. I just hope it turns out like I want it, too! :eek:

    WOWSA Bryan!!! I did email to enquire where mine as and one of the main guys Patrick (?) replied back saying the tracking didn't work in the UK. He was really nice and we chatted some more because his wife is from Woking - my postage address is my work address in Chertsey and he recognised it as being local to where they used to live! He said if I dont receive it by tomorrow he would send another one out to me!

    But I want it for my trip to Moscow :(

    You work in Chertsey, Veevs? Amazing, that's just down the road from me. Small world. :)

    Thanks Lisa! My friend thought I was crazy when I walked up to her and put the iPhone in her face, though it did make for a great shot!

    Great Writeup! I'm seriously considering this for the macro alone.

    Wow Bryan - What a shot!

    Thanks Suresh! The macro alone is worth it, but then added with the fidgets and wide angle, it's pretty great. The below image was taken using the wide angle lens, with TrueHDR, no additional processing. Posting just to show the fish eye lens.

    Yup! Lego Alien! And yes, taken using the macro lens, and then run through Snapseed. I've also been using the fisheye lens to take family photos, and it's pretty cool, especially if using Hipstamatic with it. Makes for some pretty cool photos!

    :eek: nope, that sounds pretty damn extortionate and almost the price of the lens itself, sorry to hear that Martin... :confused:

    When deciding between the Photojojo Telephoto lens or the Olloclip, which is the better bang for the buck?

    They actually do different things but, for my buck, the Olloclip every time gives much better bang... :D
