A new lens dial, described by its makers as ‘spectacles for your iPhone’, adds three rotating lenses to the phone’s camera.
The device, called the iPhone Lens Dial, allows users to take photos with either of three lenses – telephoto, fish eye and wide-angle lenses.It is a slim 10oz clip-on case made of aircraft-grade aluminium that comes equipped with two tripod mounts for portrait or landscape shots, the Daily Mail reported.
The difference between the Lens Dial and other camera apps like the Hipstamatic is that the difference in images comes from a physical lens, rather than post-processing in software, which gives the users a variety of effects to choose from.
This device alters the photos before they hit the iPhone’s processor - radically altering the shots the smartphone is capable of.
So far, the iPhone Lens Dial only works with the two latest models of iPhone - iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S and is available from US based
at the price of $249.
