Someone once said that your best camera is the one you happen to have with you. Sometimes your iPad is the camera you happen to have, and for some people, the iPad is the only camera they have. The iPad’s back camera is pretty good, but it could be improved, and that’s the purpose of the Olloclip 4-in-1 Photo Lens for iPad Air, iPad mini, and iPad mini with Retina display. The lens is designed to clip over the iPad’s back camera in seconds; it has precision ground glass optics with an anti-reflective (AR) coating. The four lenses are: fisheye with a 180-degree field-of-view, wide-angle that essentially doubles the field of the iPad’s camera, 10X macro (18mm focus length), and 15X macro (12mm focus length). The Olloclip lens works with the iPad’s camera in either still or video mode, and it will work with any app that utilizes the camera. You can pre-order the Olloclip iPad 4-in-1 Photo Lens for iPad now from Olloclip for $69.99; shipment begins June 2, 2014.
