It impressed TravGear with its Olloclip 4-in-1 lens kit for iPhone 5/5s, so we had a go with the company’s latest, a Telephoto + Circular Polarizing Lens for iPhone 6/6 Plus.

Sturdy design

With a circular fish-eye lens on one side and a 2X telephoto adapter on the other, this clip-on accessory is a lot more sturdy than before. It clips onto the top and can be positioned for both the rear and front cameras. As with the original, there are clip-on lenses, too, for 10x & 15x macro.

Harder to lose

While the original version for the iPhone 5/5s proved tricky not to lose, the Olloclip Telephoto + FishEye Lens for iPhone 6/6 Plus comes with a keyring clip or wearable pendant — makes this the first wearable smartphone lens.

Price as previewed: US$79.99
