Lugging around a camera on your travels is exhausting, not to mention a bit pricey if you want to have the right gear to capture great images. Who needs expensive camera equipment when you can just add a lens to your smartphone?


The Olloclip 4-in-1 iPhone Lens System allows you to snap a lens onto your camera and turn it into a high-powered shooting machine that’ll capture near-professional-quality images. It slides easily onto the corner of your iPhone right over top the phone’s lens for a snug fit that won’t fall off. It’s double-sided, with one providing a 10x macro lens and the other a 15x macro lens for different sizes and depths. You can also screw a wide-angle lens onto one side and a fish-eye lens onto the other for varying degrees in your photos.

It’s a little difficult to use if you have a case on your iPhone, but Olloclip offers its own case with a space carved out to fit the lens. It costs $40, but might be worth the investment.


The image quality for the lens system is among the best on the market right now and at $70 for the iPhone 5 version and $79 for the iPhone 6, it’s a lot more cost effective than purchasing a DSLR if you’re an amateur photographer.
