ExoLens announces Zeiss-branded iPhone 7 lenses
Accessory brand ExoLens has announced two new lenses families for the iPhone 7, with the upcoming release of the new PRO and PRIME ranges.
Aimed at more demanding users, the PRO range includes three lenses, a wide-angle, telephoto and macro lens.
The ExoLens PRO Wide-Angle Kit with Optics by ZEISS features a ZEISS Mutar™ 0.6x Asph T* Wide-Angle lens. It will be available for iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus, and iPhone 7 in December for US $199.99. The ExoLens PRO Telephoto Kit with Optics by ZEISS features a ZEISS Mutar™ 2.0x Asph T* Telephoto lens. The Telephoto Kit will be available for iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus, and iPhone 7 in December for US$249.99.
The final lens in the PRO kit is the ZEISS Vario-Proxar 40-80 T* macro-zoom lens. "In combination with the optics of the smartphone camera, turning the ring does not result in an increase or reduction of the field of view," Product Developer Vladan Blahnik from ZEISS explains. "Instead, the ring functions much like a manual focus with which different planes can be set. If photographers want to shoot objects that are three to five centimeters away, they turn the ring to the right as far as it will go, and to the left for objects that are five to eight centimeters away." This allows users to capture objects measuring three to twelve centimeters filling the complete field of view."
The PRO Macro-Zoom Kit will be available for iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus, and iPhone 7 in January for $199.99.
The ExoLens PRIME product line is intended for the photographer looking to create unique, artistic and candid snapshots. The lenses offered for PRIME Kits are a Wide Angle 0.6X, a Telephoto 2X and a Super Wide-Angle/Macro Combo. The PRIME product line will be available starting Q1 2017.
