Last year, prior to a trip to Italy, I purchased an SLR camera so I could get good telephoto pictures. But then, I had the hassle of lugging the big camera around, uploading my photos every couple of days, and making sure my camera battery was recharged. Recently, prior to a big trip, I purchased a Sandmarc 2X Telephoto lens. I just took my iPhone and the Sandmarc lens, and left the SLR at home. Sure, there were a few times (very few) when it would have been nice to have the SLR capabilities, but 95% of the time I got great photos just using the 2X optical capabilities of the Sandmarc Lens and the 2X digital capabilities of my iPhone. And I didn't have to carry around a big camera or worry about uploading photos. Bottom line, I highly recommend this lens. BTW, I noticed that some reviewers said that mounting the lens is more difficult than the more expensive Moment lenses. I found that this high quality lens was very quick and easy to screw on and off the phone case that Sandmarc provides with the lens. Also, the case is great to use all the time because it is thin and allows your phone to fit nicely in your pocket. So, if you are reasonably careful with your phone and don't need a heavy duty case, the Sandmarc case is a nice bonus.
I’m using it also in the wide angle camera. I made a vlog with it . https://www.instagram.com/tv/BxScwP1nqZB/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=1ezk8epd2pytw I really like how you reach out to me with the email before it arrived. I can tell you all are a customer focused company with this email.
Just received telephoto lens, and began testing it out using camera+2 app. I am impressed. Great zoom quality. Can’t wait to begin taking beautiful photos with this lens.
The telephoto lens is simple to use. This was the 2nd add-on lens I have purchased-this one is better. Like that you don’t have to change the case. I use with the Halide 3rd party app.
Amazing!!! Great lenses!!! Love them! Specially Telephoto!!!
