Stuff that works :: Olloclip Active Lens

I have used the new Olloclip lens for most of my Instagrams in New York. Everything is so big or tall that you cannot possibly capture without an ultra-wide angle lens.


At other times, things are far away and you need a telephoto lens to get a decent picture.


I have used the ultra-wide angle way more often than the telephoto lens, so if you have a 4-in-1 lens you should be covered for most situations. The Active Lens also does not have macro mode which is useful for capturing tiny details like insects or flower seeds. But as a travel companion the Active Lens is unbeatable. I also recommend the Ollocase, because it protect the phone and will still allow you to attach the lens without having to remove the cover.


Check out the Olloclip website for other combinations of wide angle, telephoto and CPF lenses. I have never had a bad Olloclip product.
