We’ve become fans of the US photography site Photojojo in the last few weeks – they’ve got a number of neat products on the site that let you have a bit of fun with your photography, and their customer service team is responsive and friendly.
One of our favourite product lines offered by them at the moment is their cellphone lens series (you’ll have to forgive the use of the word “cellphone”, they’re American), which offers small Fisheye, Telephoto, Wide Angle, Macro and Polarizing lenses that can be attached to your phone – you can change the way your phone’s camera sees the world!
Usually these lenses are attached via an adhesive magnetic ring that you stick to your phone around the camera, allowing you to swap lenses easily. It recently came to light however that the huge camera protruding from the back of the Nexus 5‘s is magnetised, and its polarity is compatible with Photojojo’s lenses.
Geoff has had two of Photojojo’s lenses for a couple of weeks – you’ll find a few samples below taken with his Nexus 5:
As you can see, there’s a few neat possibilities – start thinking about your next Instagram shot!
Each lens costs US $20 (except the Super Fisheye and Polarizer, which are $25), you can buy the lot (5 lenses) for US $79. One of the lenses might make a neat Secret Santa gift, or you could buy the whole set for the mobile photographer we all know.
Even if you don’t have a Nexus 5, you can still use these lenses – the adhesive magnetic ring is included, so you can attach them to your phone’s camera — you might need to be a little careful if you keep your phone in a case, though.
