Olloclip releases new 4-in-1 lens package: brings fisheye, wide-angle and two macro lenses to iPhones
Olloclip makes one of the most popular snap-on lenses for the iPhone and now it has released a brand new 4-in-1 lens that allows iPhoneographers to add macro (at two levels), fish eye and wide angle lenses to their arsenal.

The 4-in-1 system is extremely portable as it weighs less than 1 ounce and it just slips on the iPhone. It is made out of aircraft-grade aluminum and features coated-glass optics taylor-made for the 8-megapixel camera of the iPhone 5/5s.

The biggest improvement over Olloclip’s previous 3-in-1 lens is the addition of a new macro lens. Now you have both a 15x zoom and 10x zoom lenses, and the 10x one brings less distortion but still an awesome blurred background (bokeh) effect to it.

The new wide-angle and fish eye lenses have also been enhanced with less distortion at the edges of the image and generally sharper images.

The new Olloclip 4-in-1 package is on sale for $70 on the company’s website.

Nice. This goes to show that the iphone is the best in the 4" class... But i wonder what Nokia or Microsoft has to say about this one... Go iphone, long live Apple.

In which way it shows that iPhone is the best in the 4" class?

I'm pretty sure the 4" class entirely consists of the iPhone 5, 5s, and 5c. I can't think of any other 4" phones since the OG Galaxy S.
