Weekly Giveaway: get Wide & Tight with Olloclip

Sure we’re always looking for that 2.7 million dollar Leica. Or even the $25K model
But those will have to wait.
It’s a iPhone-y kinda world and we’re just shooting in it.
Seriously, the amount of accessories available to shoot with an iPhone are ridonkulous, but, gluttons for punishment that we are, we keep looking for what makes sense.
Like the Lifeproof case last week. But what about lenses?
We are big fans of the Olloclip. Nicely machined, good fit on the phone, and crisp lenses, well priced.

BUT…….
You do have to have a naked iPhone to use. The snug slide on fit happens when you have no case or skin on the phone.
Like so many of the accessories for iPhone, the manufacturers can’t design shapes and dimensions to fit all of the options out there, so they design for a naked phone.
We generally wear a skin, but may rethink that.
Here are some sample shots:

and Macro: an extreme close up of Tibetian cymbals

And then there is normal:

Hey, nothing wrong with normal!

So we have one set of this Olloclip iPhone 4/4s lenses to giveaway. Details will be in the Weds. Newsletter. The free one.
That’s right, it’s free, it’s short and your odds are pretty darn good.
