    I am tiring of buying new ōlloclip lenses every time Apple changes the iPhone, which is almost every time. This solution popped-up in a newsletter, I subsequently found it on Amazon for UNDER $40 WITH a case!!! :O

    Initial pics of the packaging.

    With the Fish-eye and Telephoto lens

    Tap on the 1x and bam! You have Telephoto

    The lens slides down on the case off the lens for regular 1x and 2x shots. (Taken with my iPhone 6 Plus)
    IMG_9081.JPG

    Now for the 1x and 2x macro lens

    Just unboxed it, have to play around at the Sugar Sand Festival this evening... might just leave my point-and-shoot home???

    More to come . . .

    Anxious to hear your results and see if you feel that this solution is better than Ollo clip that can sometimes have a distortion effect.

    Very intriguing! I look forward to hearing your critique. I'm still trying to decide what to get...

    Looks to be an intertesting solution to the age old ōlloclip issue of renewal with each new version of our beloved iPhone... :whistle:

    I was a big fan of the original ōlloclip set, in fact I probably still have them somewhere, but it grieves me they seemingly rip off their cusatomer base by forcing us to purcahse a whole new lens system with each iPhone incarnation... :angry:

    Perhaps we should invite Patrick O'Neill along to explain the reason they cannot come up with an inexpensive renewal system whereby the lenses can be retained and the affixation methodology just be updated... :rog:

    Actually, looking at the new set we have, perhaps they are moving in that direction this time with an easy change clip system, which seems to readily lend itself to being update for the next generation iPhone whilst keeping the current lenses in play... :D

    Ok, not real scientific... some are without lens and with... all iPhone 7 Plus - will do some macros when I have more time ;)

    No zoom - 1x (at the Sugar Sand Festival Sunday)

    These look great! But I'm wondering if using the 2x zoom on the native 7 Plus camera would be the same? Looking forward to seeing what the macro will do.

    The ones labeled merely 2x zoom is the 2x zoom on the iPhone 7 Plus... then I added the telephoto and labeled the photo 2x zoom plus telephoto.

    With the telephoto lens and iPhone left at 1x... you get fisheye...

    Also note, there were poor reviews on the case... with that in mind, I take the case off when not in use... but all the same, I am not rough on my electronics. ;)

    Many thanks. It seems they only make it for the iPhone 7.

    Yes, they are new and have only developed this to accommodate the new double lens I think.

    Looks like maybe only the 7 Plus... they appear to be a photography accessory supply company of a sort.

    looks great, look foward to reading more about it. I bought the Moment macro lens for the same reason, fed up with constantly buying new lenses. Now I hope I'll just have to buy a new case when I upgrade my iphone.

    Very nice lenses. Lucky girl! I was always wondering if it really works. But you still have to uncover the phone, do you? Or don't ever use a cover?

    I've been waiting until I got back to the UK to buy this so I have just bought one on Amazon UK. Tom reminded me I wanted it for my birthday so when it arrives I will post some pics here although with broadband now only arriving on 13 June, I shall have to wait until I get to a cafe. It has already cost us 90GBP for three weeks of SIM card data but with everything I have to do at home I can't spend my life in a cafe!

    The seam in the case started splitting, I take it off quite often... I super-glued it, so we will see it that works and I'll try to be more gentle with it.

    I have to use a cover, I am clumsy... my phone needs some protection. I switch cases a lot. ;)

    I don't really need to change my case unless I get some other sort of lenses so hopefully I won't have this problem.
