Great alternative to the expensive Olloclip,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: XCSOURCE 3in1 Detachable Fisheye Lens + Wide Angle + Micro Lens Photo Kit Set for iPhone 5 5G 5S Red DC218 (Electronics)
Firstly it has to be said that this is great novelty product. Hundreds of photos have been taken using my 3-in-1 and all of them have been an interesting alternative to the standard photos taken with an iPhone.
Build wise the product doesn't seem very sturdy, although I've not exposed it to much. Mind you at the end of the day it's a lens, although cheap you naturally look after them. I keep it in the plastic wallet in which it comes with, annoyingly though, the wide angle lens screws out relatively easily, hopefully because of the wallet the macro lens will not be scratched excessively.
The Macro lens works well to an extent, although it can be hard to focus due to hand shake etc. When it does correctly focus though, it produces spectacular photos that really are close ups!
The Wide angle lens, although not necessarily the highlight of the package still increases the area in view on photos without too much distortion, although barrel distortion is clearly seen.
The fish-eye, weirdly it doesn't totally line up with the phone lens, leaving a shadow area around the image when saved, although annoying it's not greatly detrimental to the images.
All in all, I'd say if you're looking for a fun set of lens for you iPhone then this set is a perfect buy, and at this price who can complain?
