Olloclip, a respected maker of photo lenses for smart phones has just launched a new line of lenses specifically for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. So, if you have a new device and want to improve on the camera capabilities (which are already pretty impressive) then it’s worth taking a look.

The three new lenses are as follows:

  • Core Lens Set
  • Active Lens Set
  • Macro Pro Lens Set

The Core set includes a fisheye, super-wide and a macro 15x lens; the Active set includes a Telephoto 2x, and an ultra-wide lens which covers 155 degrees as opposed to the Core’s 120 degree wide lens; while the Macro Pro set delivers three different macro lens’ at 7x, 14x and 21x zoom, which, when combined with the iPhone’s digital zoom gives users 100x magnification.

That’s quite a zoom – Instragram foodies might even be able to see the individual molecules in their artisan mac’n’cheese.

The lens sets come with a wearable pendant stand for easy access, which also opens up into a small tripod. The lens’ work with any camera and social apps on the iPhone and are priced starting at $79.99.

Find out more about the new Olloclip lens’ online, where they can also be pre-ordered. Shipping is expected in mid-November.
