Olloclip's 4-in-1 Photo Lens for iPad Will Give You a Reason to Use Your Tablet as a Camera

By Gerald Lynch on at

Right, let's just re-iterate something to begin with -- if you take photos with your tablet, you are the worst. If you insist however, you might as well be taking some interesting, creative shots with it, and Olloclip's new iPad-compatible 4-in-1 lens will help you do just that.

Working with the iPad Air, iPad Mini and iPad Mini with Retina display, the modular lens system clips over the tablet's own lens, offering four different shooting options. A fisheye lens configuration captures a 180 degree FOV, while there are 10x macro (18mm focus distance) and 15x macro (12mm focus distance) options too. Finally, the iPad Olloclip can also be set up to make use of a wide-angle lens, almost doubling the iPad's standard field of view.

Each component can be screwed on or removed for individual shooting scenarios, with the compact set weighing just 26 grams. Up for pre-order now, if you can justify shooting snaps with a ten-inch tablet you can just as easily justify the Olloclip iPad edition's £59.99 price tag. [Olloclip]
