I am super excited to bring you today’s product review. This is something completely different than you are use to seeing on my blog, it’s not your typical beauty product indulged post. However, this is product is just as exciting especially for a photography junkie such as myself. I am talking about the Olloclip Macro Pro Lens.
This is a a Macro Pro Lens set for the iPhone that allows mobile photographers to take their photography to the next level by transforming iPhone’s camera into a digital microscope or loupe.
Olloclip Macro Pro Lens
Macro 7x– Get detail-oriented with increased magnification
Macro 14x – See beyond the naked eye and photograph down to a thread on your shirt
Macro 21x – Create the ultimate close up and achieve nearly 100x magnification when combined with iPhone’s digital zoom
Advanced six element optics get in extra close to analyze, document and share beautiful macro photography and videography with edge-to edge clarity instantly and easily. Simply choose the level of optical magnification you want (7x, 14x or 21x) and achieve crisp close-up photos with greater depth of field and less pincushion distortion. Utilize the included InstaFocus™ hoods to naturally collect and diffuse light and facilitate instant focusing. See all the details in industrial, medical and professional photography.
As you can tell by the photos, this product is very simple and sleek. Very easy for travel and compact enough to not take up any extra space (even comes with a wearable pendant.)
As someone who takes pictures daily for my blog as well as up close detailed makeup shots that I feature on my Instagram, I was very intrigued about this nifty contraption. Typically I take out my Canon EOS 7D and have to set up a tripod and well to be honest it’s a task, not to mention after I take the photos, I have to upload to computer and edit and then upload to my phone so I can eventually get the finish product onto Instagram.
I was excited with the idea of taking a high quality phone from my iPhone because that would eliminate a LOT of steps. So without further ado here are some test shots using my Olloclip. Remember most of my shots are of makeup and beauty related items.
Now how amazing do these shots look? This was taken with the back of my iPhone 6 Plus using the different lenses on the Olloclip. I am so pleased with the outcome of these shots. The possibilities are endless using this lens set.
I have found the shots turn out much clearer if you are trying to get an up close detailed shot, in my case of eye makeup, use a tripod (this one is excellent and only $2.51 PLUS FREE SHIPPING)for your cell phone.
Also to make sure your getting the maximum quality from your photos while using these lenses, use a shutter remote. I just plugged in my cell phone’s ear plugs and used the volume buttons as the shutter remote. This is very important because when dealing with macro shots, any little movement can alter the quality of your photo.
I would HIGHLY recommend this lens set to any photographers, amateur or professional, that is looking for a high quality finished product with convenience.
