Add a fisheye lens to your iPhone

This just arrived in the mail from Hong Kong (via

iPhone Fisheye Adaptor

You can either just hold it up to your cameraphone’s camera or use the included metal rings (with tape) to attach it magnetically to your phone:

Here’s a shot taken with the iPhone normally:

Here’s the wide angle lens attachment:

and the fisheye lens attachment:

which was a little misaligned when I took the photo :(

Pretty cheap cameraphone fun.

Update: corrected the link to the proper Wide Angle lens I ordered.

    Where can you buy these kind of cool ‘fish eye lenses’ and what do they cost? would like to experiment with them too :-)

    • John says:

      The links to buy them are in the above post…at least the ones I bought. There are probably other ones on eBay and other places.

    Will this also work with the Zx1 or are the lenses different sizes? Thanks!

    • John says:

      Bryan: The lenses will work the same as on the iPhone or Zi6 – you just need to attach the ring which fits them all.

    I learned about this product through your demonstration video on Vimeo. Thanks for the recommendation; I’ve placed an order for the lens and bide my time as it ships from HK. I hoping that it will work on my Axis M1011 (after exposing a mounting base by opening the case) in a doorphone/security camera application.

    is there a difference between the fisheye and the wide angle lens?

  5. John says:

    I would say the photos in the post show the difference…the fisheye is super wide.
