OlloClip announces new Pro and Intro lenses for mobile devices

OlloClip, the company behind some of the best known add-on lenses for mobile devices, has introduced two new collections aimed at either ends of the market. Add-on lenses are conversion lenses that alter the focal length of the lens on your mobile device and are a convenient way of expanding  functionality. A new Multi-Device clip aimed at attaching the lenses to a wider range of devices has also been added to the range. 

Telephoto Pro Lens

Although OlloClip were one of the first to market with converters for the iPhone, the company has shied away from the premium end. That’s changed with the introduction of a new Pro Lenses collection consisting of two new lenses a Super-Wide angle and a Telephoto with 2x magnification. Available in two mount versions for use with the iPhone 8/7 and 8/7 Plus clips or the Connect X system clips for most other devices, the  Super-Wide is said to have the lowest distortion of any in their current range, while the Telephoto is ‘faster’ than the current x2  telephoto lens. The two new Pro lenses are priced at $99.99 each, or $120 with an attachment clip. 

Super-Wide Pro Lens – Connect X

Priced at just under $20 the entry-level Wide + Macro Intro Lens which consists of a wide and macro lens in one – you simply unscrew the wide-angle to reveal the macro – is a more affordable option, if you’re unsure of the usefulness of such add-on lenses.  Like the Pro collection the entry-level lens is available in two versions to fit the iPhone 8/7 and 8/7 Plus clips or the Connect X system clips for most other devices. The clips including the new Multi-Device clip are available at $20 each.
