Take better selfies with a wide fish eye and macro lens for iPhone and Galaxy Camera Phones

For those of you that are too lazy to use a real camera to take photos hands up!! That’s me too? Most of my instagram photos are all done by my trusty iPhone 5! I only had one problem….my arms are short!!

That’s the reason why you see so many photos of just my face :)!! I’m way to lazy to ask people to take photos for me plus I’m afraid I’ll insult them after the 10th time of going “omg can you please take it again!! (insert some minor vain concern here)”

So for now you have to live with my face….and asian food photos!! Until I discovered…this awesome camera fisheye wide lens!!!!

This is the fisheye selfie lens!
This is the wide lens and the macro lens and you can change the lens by twisting it!
These are the rubber caps supplied to cover the lenses.
This has really allowed me to take wider selfie shots!! I’ve done a comparison for you to see!

I can totally fit more in with the wide lens with my arms extended!! The only thing about fish eye though is you get slight distortion on the image! I think it’s super cute though and love the effect!

It also has a macro lens and wide lens on the other side for your normal photos (non-selfies) which is great! The amount of detail you can take on the macro lens is crazy!

Taken with the wide lens, notice is has the black outline which I think is super cute and very typical of some fisheye lenses!
You can even see the fabric detail on the flower petals since they are fake! How awesome is this macro lens?
This lens kit is super simple to put on and I’m really happy with it! The only thing as you may have noticed, because of the snug fit you can’t put it over a case thats thick, so I usually have to remove my case to use it which is the only downside. I don’t see myself keeping it on permanently but only to use when I need some wider shots so thats ok!
I know some companies have sold this for a lot of money (think $120+) which I think is crazy! I found it super cheap here for $12.39

I hope this review helps you guys to take better selfies :)!!

Much love,

Wengie!

    I got my mum's old one (my mother is an avid "IPhoneographer", and is constantly upgrading her equipment) And I love it! Unfortunately, I am not the most good looking or confident of people, so I probably don't use it to its full potential. However I have found it extremely useful when taking photos of outfits to ask friends for advice as it allows you to avoid the whole awkward-not-so-attractive-trying-to-find-an-angle-where-the-phone-isn't-blocking-the-outfit-mirror-pose (≧▽≦)

    Cool! I've been wondering why your pictures on instagram looks like it's from far away… but i was scratching my head since it was pretty obvious it was a selfie. Aha I tried it myself, and was like "I guess my arms aren't long enough…" Aha I know the secret now! Thanks, Wengie!!
