The Best iPhone Lenses in 2018 To Give You the Best Photos and Videos

Among the smartphone cameras available in the market, Apple promises the best. Cameras that have come along with the smartphones have created a total transformation in the way photos are taken and shared. However, there is a disadvantage since the focal length is fixed with a wide field of view and it will not be suitable for every subject that needs to be captured.

With the latest iPhone lenses you can enhance your photographic skills and take and share images. There are a few iPhone lenses that can be fitted over the smartphone’s lens to give you high quality photos that you shoot and videos you capture.

The iPhone lenses allow the user to get minute details (macro), 180degree field (fisheye) and even landscapes (wide angle). There is also the choice of telephoto lenses. If you are looking for a good deal then there is the option of multiple iPhone lenses with the added advantage of good picture quality.

We take a look at some of the best iPhone lenses that will give the sharpest photos yet

These lenses are made of glass optical elements and are within a metal frame. You get a good image quality and the lenses are very durable.

Moment has come out with its latest Filmaker Collection by stressing on mobile cinematography. With the Moment’s lenses you get the sharpest photos and if price is not the criteria and you are looking for good picture quality, then it is the best investment you can make. It costs $90 for a single lens and $190 for a kit that includes wide angle lens, telephoto lens and mounting plate.

Aukey Ora Lens: A best budget iPhone lens

The Aukey Ora lens is wide angle having a 140degree view and a 10x macro lens for close views. Both these iPhone lenses are of an aluminium alloy that comes with a coating to prevent lens flares and other problems. When we consider the 140degree wide angle view, it is fairly sharp and shows very little curvature. With the Aukey Ora 10x macro lens, fine details are sharply focussed and deliver quality pictures. It sells at $20 which is a good value for your money where you can keep things simple and also get good shots. The Aukey Ora lens works on IPhone 7, 6 and 6 Plus as well as Samsung and some Android smartphones.

ExoLens Pro by Zeiss: An iPhone lens which is great but heavy on the pocket

The Zeiss ExoLens Pro is an excellent quality lens with good image quality and low distortion. The casing is made of black anodised aluminium and the detachable lens is fairly heavy. Inside there are aspherical elements to overcome distortion and an antireflective coating to lessen the reflections and improve light transmission. The drawback is that it is large, a bit heavy and expensive. The quality of the images that the Exolens Pro captures justifies its size. It gives excellent images and widens the view of the iPhone camera without any distortion. Even the images at the edges of the frame are sharp, clean and detailed. There is the telephoto lens selling at $199.99 and the Macro Zoom at $149.99. The ExoLens Pro comes with rubber inner sleeves which is suitable for a wide range of iPhones.

SANDMARC iPhone lenses

SANDMARC has launched a range of lenses for iPhone users. It has introduced the wide angle, fisheye and macro optic which is suitable for the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X.

Each of the lens comes with a lens case mount or if the case is not available then you can use the lens with a clip mount.

Before you buy an iPhone lens, you need to consider the sharpness of the photos at the edges, see for any distortion, any distortion of light where the center of the photos are brighter than the edges and also the price. When going in for telephoto lenses, you need to be aware of the fact that they will produce jittery and blurry photos as compared to wide angle or fisheye due to slight hand shake or vibrations.
