I bought this to record basketball games and capture the entire width of the court but this is so much more useful for other things. I just recently took a trip to Lisbon Portugal and the pictures we captured with this were amazing. Great for vacation photos, for selfies and for panoramas
Mostly use the lens for video. I’m not a serious videographer but take lots of home movies and record gigs playing music. The wide angle makes capturing footage much easier when I can’t have my phone far away. Have recently gotten into making video edits of my son learning to skateboard and this lens has helped me capture videos easier by letting me stay closer to him without cutting him out of frame. It’s on the heavier side so I had to rig my gimbal to work with it but it gets the job done great.
The case is of great help because it has the lens close to the phone and it is easy to screw it in and take great pics and videos.
I’ve tried many add-on lenses over the years and each one of them has fallen short of what I needed. They were either too cumbersome to use efficiently, optical quality was below par, or the focal length just didn’t fit my needs. I was looking for a secure, easily connected, wide angle (not fish eye) with superior optical quality. I finally found it with Sandmarc’s Wide Lens and included phone case. Don’t let the cheap $15 clip-on lenses on Amazon fool you, the $90 spent on this lens is well worth the money and you won’t keep spending $20 here, and $15 there to find that right solution.
