Transform your iPhone 6 into a professional photography tool with ExoLens. ExoLens optics allows your smartphone to become a telephoto or 165-degree wide-angle camera. A compact, functional machined aluminum bracket lined with protective foam means the lens can be swapped in seconds.


ExoLens’ Telephoto 3x Lens is one of the most powerful available for the iPhone 6. Its focal length of 90mm captures distant objects crisply, in full optical zoom. It allows the phone to auto-adjust exposure, and pictures turn out bright and colorful.


The 165-degree wide-angle lens drastically increases the amount of detail and light that fits into a single image. It fills the frame and brings to life images that would normally be left out of the picture.

Its design as a modular photography platform integrates a standard tripod mount into the mounting bracket, so you can attach your iPhone 6 easily to tripods, selfie sticks, stabilizers and more.


Each ExoLens kit includes the two lenses, a mounting bracket, two inner and two outer lens caps and a microfiber lens bag. It is available now (store.apple.com) for iPhone 6 for $129.95; the kit will be available for the iPhone 6 Plus next month.
