Walimex Set Fisheye and Tele Lenses (*)

Nowadays mobile phones are practically latched onto us like a second hand print. It’s that one item that has endless uses and the 8MP camera ain’t too shabby either.

For me the most overused feature on my phone is my camera alongside a handful of social media sites. Therefore when Three Mobile contacted me and asked if I would like to review one of their products I immediately jumped at the chance to trial these Walimex Set Fisheye and Tele lenses.

The lenses themselves fit the Iphone 4/4s, smartphones, ipods, some digital cameras and some notebooks. The lenses are attached using small ring magnets that are perfectly shaped to fit around the lense with a sticky back that can be peeled away without leaving any residue.

The 0.67 wide tele lense gave a great long focal point that meant you could fit more of the object into the frame without having to squeeze yourself into a corner to get the shot. The lense itself left a crisp, clean image without distorting the object. It'd be a great lense to use for outfit posts to create a wide angle without creating a fun house mirror type effect.

The fish eye lens was my favourite, giving an extreme 180 degree angle of your perspective. I really liked the way it left a circular rustic frame around the photograph as though you’re looking through a keyhole into someone’s life.

The only negative point I have about Walimex Lense Set (which my patience may be to blame) is that the metal rings used to attatch the lenses to the lenses were’t as secure as I would like them to be.  They would move slightly and came away completely when switching between lenses. However this may of been because I didn’t wipe down my Iphone as thoroughly before applying.

But overall these lenses are a fun addition to the Iphone to create quirky photographs that are equal to the effects from an SLR!

  1. Looks like cool effects, I haven't seen the lenses before, xoxo.

  2. I've heard of these sorts of camera add-ons but never seen them in action/understood what they do! I personally love the picture you shot without any lens but I think it's because it's a structure, but I digress. I think you can get some really cool pictures with some of these! Would be cool if they had a macro lens or something of that sort :)
