Olloclip Launch The Connect X Lens System for iPhone X

Olloclip has launched a brand new lens system designed to work exclusively with the Apple iPhone X. There are six lenses available for the Connect X Lens System and they’re all interchangeable via the ‘lens system’. The lenses available include:

Super-Wide – This lens comes complete with four elements offering a 120 degree view

Ultra Wide – Offering even wider viewing with 155 degrees.

Fisheye + Macro 15x – 180 degree wide angle spherical effect in addition to a 15x increased magnification.

Macro 14x + 7x – Greater detail

Macro 21x – even greater detail than the above

The new Connect X Lens System also includes a new and unique feature allowing for an expanding lens mount. This means that it will work with ‘most’ protective phone cases in-situ as well as protective screen covers. This complete box set with the six lenses will cost $100 and this bundle will be available in Apple Stores and at Apple.com from June.

It seems that Olloclip are no longer reselling any of their products directly from their website, this is new and despite many other websites stating you can order directly from Olloclip.com, it does not appear to be the case anymore. We have reached out to Olloclip for comment and will feed back, once we know more…

To see how this system connects, check out the video below.

Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built.

Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus.

Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - TheAppWhispererPrintSales.com has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine.
