Frustrated with being stuck with the same fixed focal length of your smartphone camera? Get closer to the action or pack more into the shot with one of these great smartphone lenses, and being small enough to slip into your pocket (mostly!) you won’t miss out on that great shot again.

  1. ExoLens pro wide angle lens for iPhone

Great for packing everything into a landscape shot, this Pro quality wide angle lens will open up a world of photo opportunities to you.  The mount features a cold shoe mount for adding other accessories such as a flash, and it avoids the ugly and clunky design of a clip-on lens.
