I love everything about this lens, including image quality, relatively compact size, and even the price. Quite fair when you consider your getting a very nice case included for your phone. The only downside is the dumb screw mount. You guys need to make this a bayonet mount, so it can be attached and detached quickly. Other than that, highly recommended!
I'm not new to photography but new to the technology. After reading several reviews on a variety of anamorphic lenses, the Sandmarc anamorphic lens got my attention. For me personally, I like the fact that Sandmarc sends, not only the lens, but a clip, case, and carrying bag. Other lenses I've seen don't provide such items. I did order another popular manufacturers lens's but had to order the case and a lens attachment (missed it on the first order). So it was more convenient that Sandmarc provides the needed items. Another favorite of the Sandmarc anamorphic lens is the option turn the lens itself to set the image aright. Other lenses, a key is needed. Thanks to @emtfilms, I made the choice to purchase the lens. I also ordered some filters for use. I look forward to more products from Sandmarc. Thanks!
I have a great setup that works well for me. Love my Sandmarc purchase. Cheers, Adam Tuck
Cinematic video on your phone, love the lens. Sanmarc really think about the use cases and include everything to complement the lens: - case mount - clip mount - caps for either end - and a pouch Great attention to detail.
First off, $150 is a lot to pay for a lens for an iPhone but what a great piece of glass and such fun to use. The case fit my phone perfectly. I had a little issue getting the lens to screw in but if you put the case on a flat surface and gently get the lens started it easier. The lens is great, really stepped up the quality of my videos and actually helped me shoot more because the lens fits right in my pocket. Lens flare, GREAT! Wide view, GREAT. I'm very happy. BTW, it's worth the $$$$.
