Schneider Optics has launched a series of professional-quality lenses designed especially for iPhone 4 and 4S in hopes of raising the bar on iPhoneography.
The iPro Lens System works with a rugged snap-on case which utilizes a bayonet mount to quickly attach fisheye and wide-angle lenses for capturing professional-grade photos.
The wide-angle lens provides 35% more coverage of the area in front of you while the fisheye lens captures a 165-degree field of view. One of the more clever attachments is the iPro handle that serves as a dual tripod mount, but it also neatly stores the lenses inside.
This three-piece system costs $199 and is available for purchase now at the company's website. Schneider Optics is also planning the release of their iPro Tele Lens. The 2X telephoto narrows the iPhone’s field of view by 50% and is expected to arrive sometime in April for an additional $100.
Although Schneider Optics is not the first to offer attachable photo lenses for iPhone, the company has refined an innovative and handy pro grade kit that should make shooting on the go hassle free. Of course, the proof is in the image quality which is all that truly matters in my opinion.
