Olloclip 4-in-1 Lenses camera iphone

The best camera for traveling climbers is already in your pocket, and with these tiny lenses, your phone just got even better. This lens kit is simple: You get one adapter that slides onto your phone, and four lenses that quickly screw on to the adapter. Transitioning between lenses is seamless, and the adapter goes off and on easily—without any permanent attachment pieces or adhesive. The included lenses are fisheye, wide angle, and two macros—10x and 15x. “This setup almost makes me feel silly for having a big ol’ expensive DSLR,” one tester said. “The quality of the images rivals really nice point-and-shoots, and it’s less than a fraction of the weight, so for travel, I carry this all the time and leave the DSLR behind.” Available for iPhone, iPad, and Samsung Galaxy.
