    Lenses are 10 out of 10
      "The set of three lenses arrived well packed - the box felt secured. No damage to the product after long journey to London. Each lens was also packed in its own box which also contained iPhone XS cover, universal lens clip, lens pouch and cleaning cloth. Three sets of each overall. Lenses are made of real glass and you can definitely feel it when you pick them up - very heavy. Built to last. Images produced are pin sharp from corner to corner. Wide angle which is the equivalent of 12 mm has very little if any distortion. Colours are very natural. When shooting high contrast pics you might notice some chromatic aberrations, which can be easily removed in Lightroom or Snapseed. Fisheye lens ( my favourite so far) covers the whole frame without producing black corners - unlike other makes. Clear and very sharp images from corner to corner. Natural colour with very little chromatic aberrations in high contrast images. This lens has such a wide angle of view that you really need to keep your fingers away from it while shooting. It’s design to heavily distort images and create a very unusual look. I personally love it , the perspective is amazing! Macro lens works very well and focuses from about 3 cm. This is important if you take pictures of insects. The distance is safe enough to allow shooting without interrupting them. The lens is provided with a hood made of clear plastic. This hood helps focusing while allowing light in . Overall the lenses are really great quality- something I’ve been waiting for for a quite some time. Also all are provided with front and back covers. iPhone XS cover is specifically designed to work with those lenses and fits the phone like a glove. There is no loose or any gaps, quality is good. The lens threads are made of metal (probably aluminium, hard) and work well - you have a confidence that they will last. All lenses can be used with both iPhone XS cameras, although I’ve noticed that on the portrait camera it takes a couple of seconds before the lenses are recognised- it feel like this is due to the face detection algorithm. The cover is very slim and ok for now ( it does not cover entirely sides of the phone) but I would really like to have an option of buying more robust version. It would be great to have a loop for wrist strap and a lip around the screen to protect it - those lenses are quite bulky and it’s natural to place the phone on the table face down. No protection here. I’m hoping that Sandmarc will provide this option soon. I’ve not have much opportunity to use the universal lens clip but the build quality is very good and lenses fit in perfectly. I bought this product from the Sandmarc website and I’m very happy with my purchase. Highly recommended! Very soon I’ll be adding the portrait lens and filters to my collection. If you would like to see my images taken with Sandmarc lenses, you can find it on Instagram under : robert_bilinski "

        IN LOVE
          "I purchased two of the fisheye lens’ for my boyfriend and I and we’re obsessed. The quality of the actual fisheye itself is sturdy and has amazing clarity. I’m definitely getting the macro now. So worth the money! "

            Sandmarc polarized Lens
              "I am very happy that this Sandmac Lens lives up to the defination polarized. Living in Hawaii, I needed a lens for my Iphone so when I take photos and videos of the ocean that the photos would show the t transparency of the ocean, and not simply just the reflected surface of the ocean. So know my Iphone wears sunglasses just like I do to cut out the glare of what we see! I am 100 % satisfied, and am thankful that finally there is a polarized lens for the Iphone! "

                  Great Lenses for iPhone 6
                    "Recently purchased these to use with my iPhone 6s. They are great quality for both photos and videos. Easy to interchange although I wouldn’t try to change them in a rush as it requires threading them to the case. I would recommend these, especially the Wide-Angle lens for someone looking for quality photos."

                    Amazing Product and Customer Support.
                      "Lens is great as expected but the case won't fit the phone if you have any kind of skin on it. Looking forward to more products from Sandmarc."

                        Excellent lenses for a first trip to NYC
                          "I recently purchased the Sandmarc lenses for iPhone XS Max. As people are well aware, the iPhone already taxes exceptional photos but using these lenses adds something else to the photography. Using the wide angle lens for a trip to NYC at Christmas was perfect. It enabled me to capture skyline shots I wouldn't have been able to do as well as capturing wide spans of buildings and the bustling streets I'd simply have missed part of without it. They really help to give you a sense of scale and size without having to move so far away from the subject the shot is impossible. When using the telephoto lens with the default iPhone camera app this gave me a significantly more closer image by default which helped me to capture some great shots of my family and other interesting subjects. Using the Tele lens gives you a natural bokeh effect which doesn't have to be created after the event in portrait mode (which is great but generally only likes faces). As a result, I was really able to focus in on my subject and capture some more excellent shots. At this stage I've only really played around with the macro lens not finding anything I'm especially interested in photographing up that close. Having said that, in good lighting conditions the level of detail the camera picked up looking at leaves of plant life were absolutely exceptional. I also sampled taking some shots of wooden objects to get a sense of the grain in the wood which were really nice and demonstrated the texture nicely. My only slight comment on a less positive note would be that threading the lens to the camera case can be a little finiky and could result in you missing your perfect photo opportunity. Therefore, I found myself carrying the phone around with the camera attached all the time which wasn't as ideal. Perhaps a twist and click type system in the future would be an option? All in all, an excellent set of lenses and the build quality is also superb. "

                                Perfect fisheye for iPhone
                                  "I was skeptical to purchase a relatively expensive fit on lens for the iPhone when there were much cheaper ones on amazon. After doing some research sandmarc were the only company specializing in iPhone lenses vs competition who had a generic product. Started using the fisheye and I’m happy to say I’m impressed! I have a fisheye for my dslr but having this just helps me not having to carry my camera and lens around. I ordered the wide angle and macro as well after seeing how good the fisheye was. Btw I lost my lens cap and asked how I could purchase another.. surprise! Sandmarc said they will ship one free! It’s a simple thing but that’s customer for you. Thank you! As a suggestion - maybe have an option to just purchase the lens and not the whole kit (phone case, clip on etc) "

                                  So far, so good..but clip so so
                                    "Love the quality of lens and image quality. After using an olloclip lens on my iPhone 6s Plus for years, purchased the Sandmarc aided lens for my Xr. Lens and case work stupendously but using clip on front camera is disappointing. Other than this I am extremely happy with my lens. "

                                        "I really enjoy this kit. The compactness of the lens and filters are a major plus. The lens itself is some major glass and is very sharp I have both Sandmarc and Moment lenses and filters. I'll take the Sandmarc everytime."
