iPro Lens System for iPhone 4/4s
via Geek Beat
If you have an iPhone 4 or 4s, you undoubtedly have used it to take photos and video. But have you ever wished you could have a wider angle lens or a way to mount it to a tripod for those tight situations? The iPro Lens System is a solution to solve both of these problems.
One of the big problems with the iPhone 4’s great camera is it’s limited to a single focal length lens with an equivalent of a 30mm lens on a 35mm camera. Schneider Optics comes to the rescue with the iPro Lens system for the iPhone 4 and 4S.
The iPro Lens System consists of 2 lenses stored in a combination handle/tripod adapter that’s mated with an iPhone 4 case. The kit comes with a wide angle lens, which converts the 30mm iPhone lens to a 19mm wide angle lens, taking the viewing angle up to 86 degrees (24 degrees more than the standard lens). The kit also comes with a fisheye lens, converting the 30mm lens to a 12mm fisheye equivalent, converting the image up to about 160 degrees (almost 100 degrees more than standard).
Both lenses attach and remove quickly and easily to the included iPhone 4 case. Simply take the lens and twist it on and off. The lens storage handle itself has the same mounting points inside of it to store your lenses when you aren’t using them, as well as a 1/4"-20 thread for mounting to any standard tripod. The handle itself mounts to the iPhone 4 via the included case using the mounting tip, giving you the secure grip on the phone to take shots at any angle. This handle tip can also be removed from the handle, and contains another 1/4"-20 thread to mount the iPhone to a tripod without the handle, giving you easy access to the lenses while the phone is on a tripod.
Right now, if you are looking for a prime lens kit for the iPhone, the iPro is the best place to start looking. This system is great if you are eager to take your iPhone photography to a higher level, and need a wider aspect lens to get the shot in that tight space.
The iPro Lens System is specifically designed for the iPhone 4 and 4S. Both the Wide Angle and the Fisheye Lenses use a bayonet mount to securely fasten onto the iPhone case. The iPhone case gives you the two options of attaching the handle on the left or right side of the iPhone. The handle itself safely stores your lenses and enables you to attach your iPhone to any tripod. The system includes:
- Fisheye Lens - Captures pictures with a spectacular 165 degree field of view
- Wide Angle Lens - Provides an impressive 35% wider field of view
- iPhone 4/4S Case - Uses a bayonet mount to attach lenses and integrates handle attachment points on both sides
- Handle/Lens Case - Provides steady shots as a handle, stores lenses, and is also a tripod mount adapter
