ExoLens – Professional Photography System for iPhone 6

Share

I am very interested in this new professional lens system which comprises of two lenses – a 3x telephoto lens and a 165 degree wide angle lens – each screw into a machined aluminium bracket that literally slides onto your iPhone. Each bracket supports tripod mounts and selfie sticks/monopods with a 1/4″ -20 tripod mount.  Each kit is also supplied with lens caps, lens hood for the telephoto lens and a microfibre cleaning and carrying pouch.

I have not tested this product as yet and therefore cannot vouch for the optical quality but I hope to do so soon.

‘ExoLens was born out of many years of lens and housing development for Optrix. Through the success of the Optrix brand and pushing the limits of mobile photography a new brand was born’.

The ExoLens System retails for $129.95 for the iPhone 6 with a May release planned for the iPhone 6 Plus.

The lenses are available to purchase from the Apple Store here.

How To Select An Obituary Image

Share

One of the many things I like to do is to read obituaries, not for any morbid gratification but because they are usually incredibly well written and have to encompass so much within a limited word count.  Of course, the other key part to creating an obituary piece is selecting an image or more to accompany it. As this article illustrates, ‘multiple images are no longer the reserve of rock gods and royalty’.  Take a look, it’s very interesting.
