Have you guys seen the rad little lenses made from Photojojo for your smartphone? The company sent me a set around Christmas and they’ve been sitting on my desk beckoning me to come play with them ever since.
Then I saw that the lenses are currently on sale and realized now was the time to get to using them and sharing with you, so you could grab your own at a discount. When I finally did pick them up, I couldn’t put them down!
Pictured up top is probably the most fun of the three in the Iris Lens Series– the fisheye. Don’t you love how it makes Beatbo practically jump- or in his case dance while teaching about colors, numbers and letters– right out of the photo? (P.S. If you don’t know Beatbo, be sure to consult our famous gift guide: Best Toys for Babies & Young Toddlers.)
Most of us aren’t professional photographers and would never get to play with taking interesting photos of our kids (and our kids’ creations) with lenses like these. But Photojojo totally makes it possible to do without a fancy SLR camera.
This set makes it so simple! Check out the closeup I was able to achieve on my son’s LEGO man. (right: regular phone, left: macro lens)
The most useful of the three lenses, for me, is definitely the wide angle lens. Just look how much more of my living room I was able to capture. (top: regular phone, bottom: wide angle lens)
If you’re wondering what these lenses actually look like and how to use them, here’s a video to show how you put the lenses on your phone and store them.
What do you guys think? Ready to take your phone photos up a notch?
