Purchased mine for wrestling videos and so far, so good!
Well built, high quality lens. I highly recommend it. There is already a tele lens on iPhone11 pro but I mount it on f1.8 main camera to get better quality photos especially in the night time. Sometimes iphone portrait mode makes weird blurry images on edges of an empty glass or object etc. but this lens don't. It works great. One small thing that makes me annoying is the phone case. Maybe... since there are 3 camera holes put together, it's very tricky to mount without a cut or hassle meanwhile, the hole on a clip is okay tho..
The telephoto lens works great. I compared the photos (previous photos) to the mountain backdrop in Oro Valley Az, the storm clouds over Pima College West Campus. Looking forward in purchasing all your lens when my limited budget can afford it.
I don't always write reviews but when I do it with Dos Equis beer....jk I don't drink beer BUT I do shoot on my iphone and I love this telephoto lens! Catch some of my recent pics using it on insa! : @adamjosephdaniels
I've had these lenses for around 3 months now and I am thoroughly impressed. I take my photos using an iPhone XR and have the Sandmarc Wide Angle and Tele lenses. Off the two I use the Tele the most, if your phone has portrait mode this lens would allow you to activate portrait mode from further back (twice the distance!) which is really useful especially if you have kids. When you have outdoor light the results really are outstanding, for me color and detail is improved over the standard phone lens. If you want to make the most of these lenses I recommend using a third party app which will allow you to tinker with your phone's camera settings. Improve your understanding on how to take the right photos for the right situation and with these lenses you definitely will take your photography to the next level. When I'm not using the portrait mode on my phone I switch to a third party app that allows me to change ISO / Shutter speed to take really good manual photos in RAW format. The build quality is truly amazing and I live that they even included inner threading that allows you to mount on filter attachments directly to the lens (so you don't have to pay extra for an adapter!). For the level I am at I truly have no need to go back to my mirrorless camera which was big and cumbersome for changing lenses when out with the family (plus phones for me now focus on subjects faster - if you have a fairly new one). Lastly I really like the way these lenses connect to the case (very secure which gives great peice of mind) and I like the case itself. Very happy with this purchase, would not hesitate to recommend and for me the best lens system out there when you take into account price, accessories, connectivity and quality. Next purchase will be the filters!
