REVIEWED: Schneider Optics iPro Trio Kit
Get closer with these travel-friendly clip-on macro, telephoto & wide-angle optics
The problem with smartphone photography is the limited lens inside, but thanks to accessories like the iPro they’re reasonably easy to upgrade. Working just like a pair of spectacles, the three lenses that make-up the iPro kit offer travel-friendly, clip-on, professional-grade optics.
Schneider Optics lenses
Available for all models of iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S4, iPad Air and iPad Mini, the iPro kit includes a case, 2.5x macro lens, 2x telephoto lens, and a .45x wide angle lens, all made by Schneider Optics. The latter is perhaps the most crucial; it’s great for landscapes and group shots, whereas the other two are perfect for close-ups that may only be of occasional use.
Twist on, twist off
Each one twists on and off the corner of the device housing the built-in camera, thus upgrading the optics, but also protecting the phone’s camera itself. Though small, the lens case also acts as a universal tripod mount. Super Wide and Fish Eye lenses are also available.
