Gear Works // Neewer 3 in 1 iPhone Lens Kit Review
I purchased the NEEWER 3 in 1 iPhone lens kit kind of on a whim the other night. I was watching Jenn Im's June Favorites video and she has the Izzi Silm iPhone case which has the three lenses built into the case. It is also $99. I didn't want to invest money like that into something I may not ever use. So after a quick Amazon search I found this kit for $7.78. Much better price for me. I was sure the quality wouldn't be the best but for something to just play around with, that was not a concern for me.
The kit comes with a fisheye lens, a wide angle lens, and a macro lens (unscrew the wide angle to revel macro). First thoughts, it's ok. Definitely does it's job. It's a novelty and not something I would reach for to make my photos better.
It blocks the flash so it's not great to use in low light. It's very hard to get the camera to focus when the lens is on.
The macro shots will work best if there is a lot of available light. Since the camera has to be soooo close to what you're shooting, it's very difficult to get a good macro shot.
I think it's something I will carry around with me to play around with some more. I am definitely sure if I had bought a more expensive one the quality would be much, much better but for something to just play around with, I think it's worth picking up.
