Very impressed with the result of using this lens. Attached to the telephoto lens of the iPhone 12 Pro Max, using Camera+ 2, it gives 4.5 times optical magnification. Easy to attach to the Sandmarc case. It now completes my set of lens from Sandmarc, all of which I use frequently with great results.
I have used my telephoto lens quite a bit since receiving it a few weeks ago. Since I own an iPhone 12 mini, I didn't have to download a third party app in order to use the lens. The telephoto range has been adequate for my needs. The lens is easy to put on/take off, although aligning the threads takes some care. The videos are very informative and helpful. So far, I am very satisfied with my purchase. I chose the Sandmarc brand after doing a lot of research. There are a lot to choose from, this one meets my needs just fine.
If you just want to photograph something really small then the macro lens is for you. But if you want to make a macro photograph you’ll need something different. This doesn’t allow much compositional decision-making. But it does make a good microscope or a way to photograph things that are really tiny like a coin.
Telephoto Lens Edition - iPhone 12 Pro Max works pretty well and I am very happy to have the possibilities to use it. Already made very good pictures with telephoto lens. They only issue I can see is the enclosed case for iPhone 12 max pro, which can not be used with wireless charges ( I already purchased and using my devices to charge with) and as well the case is very difficult to be removed , even I damaged my iPhone device , trying to change the Sandmarc case for with original (produced with logo of Apple) in order to use it when I do not need to take pictures. Anyway its really good product but the case need to be improved and I am sure that lot of users will have the same problem .
