olloclip Telephoto Lens

iPhone and iPod touch photographers who want to get twice as close to the action and get clear close-ups now have a solution, the new olloclip telephoto lens and circular polarizing lens (CPL). Perfect for capturing a crisp, close-up photo or video at half of the effective distance, the olloclip telephoto lens – like all olloclip products — continues to take mobile photography further than ever while bringing your faraway subjects closer to you.

The fixed 2x magnification optical lens slides on and off in seconds. Available for the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4S and iPod touch 4th and 5th generations, the olloclip telephoto lens is manufactured using a multi-element coated, optical quality, precision-ground glass lens and high-grade aluminum body.

Included is one of the pro photographer's favorite go-to tools, a circular polarizing lens (CPL), which blocks out light coming in at user-adjustable angles, making colors truer to life and reducing reflections. The CPL can also be used directly on the iPhone camera or on the olloclip 3-in-one lens system with fisheye or wide-angle lenses (sold separately).

The olloclip telephoto lens is especially valuable for the serious photographer seeking to achieve certain effects and more professional results. In addition to getting you twice as close to your subject, the lens provides a more creative depth of field so you can use selective focus to make your subjects stand out distinctly from their backgrounds (especially useful when the background is cluttered or distracting).

Available at olloclip's website at and through major retailers including Apple in July and Best Buy in August. The olloclip telephoto lens retails for $99.99.
