With the iPhone 4 and 4S I bought the olloclip lens attachment. My review of this is online. In the months that I have had this, I have put the lenses, especially the macro, to good use.

With the announcement of the iPhone 5 with its different dimensions, it was clear that the lenses would no longer fit and olloclip (always with the lower case "o") have announced a new version.

The company write that they are now taking pre-orders for the olloclip for the iPhone 5. It offers all of the same benefits available with the current model, so whether you are shooting a fisheye, wide-angle, or macro photo the results are amazing. The added panorama feature in iOS 6 allows for even greater creativity, as now you can take shots beyond 360 degrees when using the olloclip fisheye lens.

Examples of images taken with the lenses can be found on the olloclip website from where I borrowed the image I have used here. Customers may also place orders using the online shop. This is what I did when I bought the 3-in-one lens package ($69.99) last year and these arrived by courier within a few days. Thai customers will find there is a small charge of around 300 baht that is levied by Customs at the port.
