Brand New iPro Lens System For iPhone 5 From Schneider Optics


It’s proving a good time for new lenses for the iPhone, not only have Olloclip just announced a new telephoto and circular polarizer (see here) but Schneider Optics have also launched their new iProLens System for the iPhone 5, known as Series 2. We previously announced this news back in April, see here.

The team have redesigned the case to fit the slimmer (compared to iPhone 4/S) phone and they have also improved the lens system to achieve optimum results with the higher resolution of the iPhone 5 lens and sensor.

There are now five interchangeable lenses available in the iPro Lens System. These include a new macro, wide angle, super wide angle (up to 180 degree view), fisheye and 2x telephoto.

As in the earlier model of case the new case incorporates an aperture that includes a handle to aid handling and also to store the lenses compactly in transportation.

We previously published our Expert Review on the earlier 2x tele lens here.

The total price for the kit with new case and three lenses, including the Macro, Super Wide angle, 2x Telephoto with Combo Handle is $229. You can find out more from the Schneider Optics website here.

Series 2 Trio Kit



The Series 2 Trio Kit has everything you need to immediately enhance the quality of your iPhone® 5 photos. In the kit you’ll find the newly designed case, molded to firmly but comfortably fit your iPhone® 5. The iPro handle can attach to either side of the case and serves as both a tripod mount and a case for your lenses. The 2X Tele, Super Wide, and Macro lenses screw easily onto the case providing options to add width, depth, and details to all your shots. A lens cap that fits all lenses is also included..
