The iPhone 4s’ camera is top notch, at least for a smartphone. However, there are some pretty obvious drawbacks, such as the tiny lens that doesn’t offer more than one field of view. Unless of course you have the iPhone Lens Dial.
Unlike the olloclip, which slips on and off the corner of the iPhone, this lens getup adheres to Apple’s handset using an aluminum case that wraps both the front and back. It sports three lenses: Wide Angle, Fisheye, and Telephoto. The first two lenses really need no explanation, where as you should probably know that the telephoto lens provides a 1.5x optical zoom over the standard iPhone lens. To access each lens, you simply rotate the dial where upon they’ll lock into place covering the iPhone’s standard lens.
By now you’ve probably noticed that there are some drawbacks to this lens system. First off, it’s expensive costing $249.99. Second, the case adds a ton of bulk to the iPhone and nearly triples the weight of the iPhone despite it being crafted from aircraft grade aluminum.
