Home / Blog / 4 Lenses for Your Smartphone


Hey Photographer, it’s Shannon again! I know a lot of you are practicing photography with your DSLRs and/or point-and-shoot cameras, but what about those occasions when you don’t want to carry around the extra bulk? These days, our smartphones are practically glued to our hands, and the quality of their built-in cameras is constantly improving. Why not make the most out of your device and use your phone to take some awesome photos? There are many attachable lenses for smartphones on the market, so you can really shoot on-the-go. Here are some you may be interested in:
  1. Moment Tele Lens– Loved by major publications such as Forbes and The Wirecutter, Moment lenses are superb in design, using the best quality glass for their products to achieve a sturdy, elegant build. The focal length sits at 60mm, which is ideal for beautiful portraits, but you can also shoot landscapes and travel photos as well with minimal distortion. Moment is a pricier brand, with the original model lens sitting at $59.99, or the new one for $99.99. Still, you can’t beat the image quality these lenses produce. They are compatible with iPhones and Androids. 
  2. Moment Wide Lens– This lens is best for those gorgeous wide-angle shots of landscapes, from the New York City skyline to a breathtaking mountain view. If you’re more into portraiture, pop this lens on for fun group photos. You can achieve 2 times more image with sharp, impressive detail. Like the Tele Lens, the Wide is priced the same, with the original going for $59.99, and the new model for $99.99.
  3. Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens– With this kit, you get the most bang for your buck. The Olloclip 4-in-1 includes a fisheye, wide-angle, and two macro lenses for $79.99, granting you so many opportunities to play and get creative. The design works on both front- and rear-facing cameras, and it’s super easy to transition from one lens to the next. Being lightweight and versatile, this kit is perfect for capturing all your photographic needs while you’re on the move. It’s worth mentioning these lenses are only compatible with iPhones.
  4. Photojojo Magnetic iPhone and Android Series– These lenses are made with aluminum and high-clarity glass, offering great photo quality that can be created anywhere. The best part? They are compatible with most devices that have a lens (even tablets!), and they’re magnetic, meaning they can easily snap on and off with the quick application of a removable magnetic ring. The series includes all the lenses you’ll need, such as a telephoto, wide, macro, fisheye, and super fisheye lens. They start at $20, which is more affordable than its competitors.
Happy shooting!
