If you’d like to make wonders with your smartphone camera, then we’re having a compact device for you. This device fits anywhere, even in your trousers, and there’s no need to carry your DSLR everywhere. The ExoLens with Optics by ZEISS is a new iPhone accessory that pledges to turn your smartphone into a professional camera just by strapping a portable lens over your smartphone’s camera.
The professional quality lens with Optics by ZEISS is only compatible with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus. It comes bundled with a metal mounting bracket, a wide-angle lens and a carrying pouch for $199.95. The companies also plan to offer swappable macro and telephoto lenses later this year. You get the advantage of DSLR aspherical lens technology in a compact iPhone accessory lens.
The new ExoLens with Optics by ZEISS Mutar Wide-Angle Lens is virtually distortion free, has exceptional edge-to-edge contrast, and a stunning picture quality. It’s matched with the precision-machined aluminum ExoLens bracket that includes soft interior liners to ensure a perfect fit and protection from scratches. The bracket also features an integrated standard tripod mount (1/4”-20) and cold shoe mount, so you can easily use favorite accessories such as tripods and exterior flashes.
ExoLens already offers a variety of smartphone accessories designed to improve mobile photography. By teaming up with Zeiss the company can bring professional equipment to iPhone users who might not be ready to buy a dedicated camera.
“The collaboration represents a truly pivotal step in the development of accessory lenses for mobile phones,” said John E. Fellowes, CEO of ExoLens’ parent company Fellowes Brands.
