olloclip Filmer’s Kit for iPhone REVIEW


olloclip takes care to use premium materials in building their lenses. The lenses are made with multi-element coated glass optics for high-quality images. The lens system (lens + clip) is designed to align instantly with no extra parts required. The systems will work on either the back or front-facing cameras so you can use them for selfies if desired. The clips are wearable so that they are always at the ready. The pendant can double as a stand for your phone. olloclip lenses are designed to work with all camera apps and are even compatible with video, time-lapse, panoramas, and 360-degree VR photos. The Pivot Grip is an accessory with a built-in universal clamp that accommodates mobile devices up to 5.5-inches. It does not require a power source and it will articulate up to 225 degrees.

  • Super-wide lens with over 120-degree field-of-view
  • Macro Lens provides 15x magnification for extreme close-up work
  • Ultra-wide lens covers a 155-degree field-of-view
  • Telephoto provides 2x optical zoom for a shallow depth-of-view
  • Pivot Grip provides 225-degree articulation for filming at any angle. You can connect to your smartphone, GoPro, or compact camera and the grip features passive stabilization.

User Experience

The first thing I noticed with the Filmer’s Kit was the incredible carrying case that is provided. olloclip partnered with Incase to give users an easy way to carry their lenses and accessories around. There is no handle, but the die-cut foam padding certainly makes up for that omission. All the pieces of the kit are laid out in a way that makes sense. They are easy to remove from the case and because everything is cut to fit the accessories, they are easy to put away, too.


They say that the best camera is the one you have with you and these days, your phone’s camera is nothing to shy away from. My iPhone 7 has a 12MP camera with a f/1.8 aperture. Mobile phone cameras have come a long way in the past 10 years and many people prefer to use their iPhone cameras instead of their simple point and shoot cameras. Now, you have the option to do more with your mobile phone’s camera with the olloclip Filmer’s Kit. With this complete accessory kit, you can deliver the ultimate smartphone photos. I can recommend the olloclip accessories and lenses as they are premium quality items and are very easy to use.
