Kamerar developed a pretty clever case-and-clip solution for sliding different lens attachments over the cameras on the back of the iPhone 7 Plus. $45 gets you two clips: one which turns the wide angle into a fisheye and the telephoto into a longer zoom, and one that enables for macro photography.
While iPhone users normally have plenty of options, the dual lens setup on the iPhone 7 Plus’ second lens makes the usual gamut of accessories incompatible. Kamerar is solving the issue with the first dual lens for the dual lens — a pair designed to sit over both built-in lenses, and theoretically eliminating any alignment issues.
Once the case is attached to the phone, you can slide accessory lens tabs into place over the iPhone camera lens. Kamerar ZOOM was created in the cooperation between Kamerar, the designers of the housing, and the designer of the optical system, Ztylus . ‘We provide the unique ability to zoom and get extreme close-up detail. Use the Macro Zoom lens with the both lenses on the iPhone 7 Plus,’ writes Ztylus
The Kamerar’s case protects the smartphone’s sides and back while creating a small pocket to slide the lenses into. When the users want to use just the built-in lenses (perhaps for that faked bokeh effect), the lens slides down for the storage. A quick flip up aligns the extra lenses over the original.
The fisheye/telephoto lens extends the built-in camera’s optical range with both a wider and longer telephoto. Along with the camera’s 2x optical zoom second lens and a 10x digital zoom, and adding the Macro zoom lens extends that range for more detail in close-up shots.
The new Kamerar ZOOM system and the two lens attachments sells for $45 and can be purchased directly from the Kamerar store.
