olloclip has released a lens adapter of its popular 3-in-1 iPhone 5 lens solution for the fourth and fifth generation iPod Touch.
More and more photographers are taking pictures with their smartphone. The advancements in image sensors for smartphones, coupled with creative applications, have allowed photographers to get rid of their compact digital cameras and choose a mobile phone instead.
olloclip had seen this as a perfect opportunity to improve the life of iPhoneographers, people taking photos with their iPhone.
olloclip 3-in-1 lens adapter for iPod Touch: Macro, Fisheye, and Wide-Angle
As iPhoneography is the most popular mobile photography “art”, olloclip released a 3-in-1 lens for the iPhone 5. The company provides an interesting lens solution which can be attached directly on the smartphone, in order to create compelling effects.
The olloclip 3-in-1 lens adapter can be attached with ease and it can be adjusted to provide fisheye, wide-angle, and macro effects. It is an external accessory for the iPhone 5, but it is also available for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.
The company’s lenses were a hit and many customers asked olloclip to release a version for Apple’s portable media player, the iPod Touch. As a result, the company has provided a lens adapter, which is compatible with both the fourth and fifth generations of the iOS device.
CEO Patrick O’Neill said that the adapter would have been released sooner on the market. However, the iPod Touch has a unique “curvature”, so it took time to devise a way for the lens to fit properly on the device.
Price and availability revealed
The aforementioned shortcomings have been overcome, therefore iPod Touch 4th-gen and 5th-gen users can now purchase a pair of lens adapters for the small price of $9.99.
The 3-in-1 lens solutions are being sold for the price of $69.99 and they are available in three colors, such as White, Red, and Black. The advantage is that, at this price, customers receive an entire system, consisting of the caps, carrying bag, and an adapter for the iPod Touch.
