Review : PhotoJoJo Phone Lenses

As you probably know, I love taking photos. Whether it be with my Nikon D300 or my trusty little iPhone, I am constantly clicking away at what I see.

However, the fact that I generally spend all of my money on plane tickets and travelling means that I never upgraded to an iPhone 5 (or 4s for that matter), and I’m still putting up with my technologically ancient iPhone 4. 5mp camera? Laaame.

So, my only solution was to make do with what I had and try to improve the quality. How did I do this? PhotoJoJo Phone lenses!

That was incredibly peppy. Let me try that again.

PhotoJoJo iPhone lenses  *stern face* they are awesome *sterner face*.

When my lenses first arrived in the mail I spent two days testing them out on everything, taking photos of things that I wouldn’t normally take photos of…

  • Pins
  • My window
  • My eyeball
  • Brooms
  • Skin follicles
  • Lamps

I was going a little overboard, but I couldn’t get enough of them. The first time I took them out of the house I was bombarded with questions and demands to know what they were and where I had obtained them.

PhotoJoJo! I shouted, once again feeling peppy. There is no unhappy way to convey that word.

Not only were my family and friends intrigued when I popped a lens on my phone, but I literally had strangers come up to me and ask about them. I would always give them a little demonstration and let them take a photo or two.

They were hooked. Almost every person I met said they planned to buy some of their own.

 

Personal experiences aside, let’s get to the good stuff.
Photo examples from these 4 awesome lenses:

 

Fish Eye

I couldn’t get enough of this one, it is so fun to use. I tried to limit myself from uploading all fish eye shots, but it just makes everything look so much cooler.

Wide Angle

The wide angle isn’t so wide compared to the fish eye, but it is quite easy to see the difference from the regular camera. Perfect for landscapes, without the distortion of the fish eye.

Telephoto

The telephoto doesn’t make a drastic difference in terms of zooming on landscapes, but it definitely helps prevent pixelation when zooming in and cropping. It’s also fairly noticeable when you’re shooting in close range, for example, inside your house.

Macro

Another really fun one, completely different from any other lens. You will find yourself photographing subjects that you never would have noticed before, like a leaf or the fibers on your shirt.

So, there you have it.

The PhotoJoJo Phone lenses are pretty sweet little pieces of iGlass and take some incredibly unique photographs.

*TIP* keep your lens caps on while the lenses are not in use. By my own doing I left the lens cap off of my fisheye for a day and the centre of the lens got scratched up when I dropped it off a moving dogsled. oops.

    Seattle: Thanks, good review. I’d read several others, none of which contained sample photos. I considered buying the WAY less expensive lenses offered on Amazon, but you made the sale for PhotoJoJo. (That, and they have a really well designed web site..) Can’t wait to play!

      Glad you’re going with the PhotoJoJo lenses, Rich! My sister has the cheaper Amazon ones, but personally I don’t think they compare. The PJJ ones are so much sleeker and just have a little something extra in the clarity. Have fun playing with them :]
