Schneider Optics’ iPro lens system has become one of the more robust accessory lines for iPhone photographers, and they’ve just expanded the system with the recently release 2X Tele lens. Equivalent to a 60mm lens on a 35mm SLR camera, the 2X Tele offers a 31° field of view for still photos (23° in the video mode).
The 2X Tele prevents portrait shot distortion, resulting in images with edge-to-edge sharpness (no vignetting).
About the iPro lens system:
Schneider Optics’ iPro Lens System is purpose built for the iPhone 4 and 4S. It features a rugged black iPhone case with a bayonet mount to allow iPro lenses to be quickly and securely interchanged on the iPhone. The iPro Lens System’s professional optics are simple to use, easy to handle, and smartly self-storing. The lenses nest in a case that doubles as a handle. It offers comfortable hand-holding, helps stabilize the iPhone and protects the lenses. Plus the handle has a ¼-20 screw adapter to mount on a tripod or monopod for additional stability.
iPro lens housings are precision machined from aluminum alloy and anodized for durability. The lens elements are ground and polished from top grade optical glass and lenses feature multi-layer anti-reflection coatings to avoid flare.
The iPro 2X Telephoto lens, handle extension and lens cap will run you $105 (iPhone case and handle are available separately). Other members of iPro family include the iPro Wide Angle, which increases the iPhone’s field-of-view by 35 percent, and the Fisheye, which provides a 165° field of view for panorama shots.
