Also, my phone is already pretty thick, so the lenses don't really fit if I have a case on. I saw some reviews where people said it worked alright with their phones and cases, though. Just keep in mind that a case may or may not get in the way.
Finally, at least on my phone, I can see a bit of the edges of the lens when I'm using the wide angle. If I'm very careful with centering the lens, they're almost unnoticeable in the corners of the image. I guess this will vary based on your camera and whether or not you have a case. Of course, the image can just be cropped.
Note. I had one small dissapointment, which was an imperfection on the glass coating where apparently a tiny bubble caused a clear spot. It doesn't perceptively affect the images as the focal length is beyond the glass. No biggee. At these prices, these things are practically disposable. These things would make good stocking stuffers come Christmas.
The first two photos were taken using the Fisheye lens. The first is of Muir Woods and the second is of a rainbow. As can be seen of the first fisheye photo, there is kind of a funky boundary that is not circular around the photo. The photo of the rainbow is cropped, but getting the entire photo of the rainbow would not have even been possible without the help of the lens! Only about 1/4 of the rainbow would fit in a normal photo range. This lens has the potential to distort images more than the others, but in times like the photos shown below it is very useful.
The Wide Angle:
In all honesty, I have maybe used the wide-angle lens maybe three times since purchasing this lens kit 3 months ago. It can certainly be useful when a little more of a subject needs to be seen without going full-blown fisheye on it, but I, personally, have not had much use for it.
This lens is actually the primary reason I was interested in this lens kit. The focal is very very small, only 13-15mm from the lens itself. I suffer from an intentional tremor, which makes my hands shake ever so slightly when attempting manual tasks, so this was a huge challenge for me. I invested in a tripod and bluetooth shutter to remove the human movement from the equation and I ended up with some phenomenal photos! The other challenge with using the macro lens was getting enough light on the subject. With my Galaxy, the lens is in the middle of the phone, where iPhones have the lens in a corner. My phone actually blocked light from hitting whatever my subject was since my phone has to be within focal distance. It was a challenge sometimes, but not necessarily something I would call a con.
I really like the carrying pouch for all the equipment that comes with this package. The plastic lens covers are not of high quality, but effective.
I would definitely recommend this product to a friend, and will buy another set if I manage to scratch a lens or two during my photography endeavors. Best of luck to you all to snag the perfect photo!
Note: in the last photo, the bluetooth shutter is not included in the lens kit. It is a separate purchase.
The clip on the phone stays on, even with considerable shaking. The foam cushions around the lens so nothing gets scratched.
Wide-angle lens: At first I wasn't sure the wide angle lens made a difference, but after taking a bunch of selfies and some nature photos it definitely makes a difference.
Macro: I love the macro lens! This is my first time playing around with different lenses so take my opinion for what it's worth...but the macro lens is so much fun. I've used it from everything from leaves and flowers to my dogs noses and feet.
Fish-angle lens: I'm not a big fan of fish angle lens. It reminds me too much of 90s rap videos. This seemed to be just a standard fish-eye lens.
Overall the lenses are definitely worth the money. Just FYI, the macro and wide angle lenses are like 2 lenses in one. You screw them both on and then remove the wide angle to get to the macro. Also, the clip worked with all my iPhone 6+ cases. You want to make sure that the clip is situated all AROUND the lens so you don't get any dark blurry images around the corners.
I wish the wide angle lens was more wide....but for the price it's a great value. Very satisfied.
