iPhone 5 Fisheye video demo and thoughts
Feb 9, 2013

This is an unedited video with the iphone 5 and a fisheye lens. I got the "Red 180° Fish Eye Lens+Wide Angle Lens+Macro Lens 3-in-1 Kit for Apple iPhone 5 by Neewer" from Amazon for about $15.00. I'd watched several videos and reviews demonstrating the Olloclip for Iphone 5 for $70 and a few for the $15.00 item. I almost hit the buy button for the Olloclip but decided based on the reviews and videos I'd seen that the much cheaper one was worth a try. The one I got in the mail was "ib-FWM-5" and the scan on the box said "Red 180.......". So far I am extremely pleased. I'd been shooting panoramas with the Sony HX100V which were high resolution and very nice and panoramas and video with the Sony F3 with the kit 18-50mm and the Rokinon 8mm Fishyeye (excellent!) and the Canon and Rokinon 8 mm. Trying to turn the iphone 5 into a somewhat serious camera is a winter thing. I just do not want to carry anything else, not even a cup of coffee. I've been ok with the iphone 5's panorama mode but did not like the low height and long wide look. So I tried other software which was ok, even very nice http://www.flickr.com/photos/8ideas/8425056782/in/photostream yet I still kept looking. Will these lenses combined with the panorama and/or movie mode approach a more serious camera?. Some quick shooting suggests -maybe. Here's a video shot with the iphone 5's camera with the fisheye. (have not fully tested the macro and the wide angle but the wide angle looks very good and the macro , maybe? NOTE the amazing thing about these lenses with the iphone is that they can be used with the iphone apps. SO that means that I can use the camera on Camera+ and the camera on the HDR apps etc
