olloclip – 3-in-1 Macro Lens for iPhone 5S and 5

The iPhone 5S has a beautiful camera but it’s still got its limits. The lens is made to fit in the sleek, slim case of the phone, so there’s no room for a variable length lens. This means there’s no optical zoom, but also means there’s no option for ultra-close-up macro shots either. Now olloclip might have the product you’re looking for. It’s debuted a new 3-in-1 Macro Lens system for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s.

The olloclip macro lens system features 3 levels of magnification for sharp close-up shots from your iPhone. It’s engineered with grade-A coated glass and aircraft grade aluminum. There’s practically no light loss to the iPhone’s CCDs and the resulting images are beautiful.

You can easily switch between the 3 levels of Macro as the whole system clips together. There’s a soft plastic housing that fits onto the iPhone’s camera lens, a magnifying lenses that clip onto that. The lenses clip on and off in seconds, making it easy to switch from one lens to the other.

iPhone users, what do you think of this macro lens solution? See below for more information!
