Great Walks reviews the Black Eye Lens Travel Kit. So what is it? The kit is made up of three clip-on lenses that boost the range of photos you can take with your phone, iPad or laptop.
The three lenses in the kit are a fisheye 120° wide angle, 60mm portrait lens and a lens for macro-photography – all made with high quality materials and attention to detail.
I can see how these would attract people with a busy Instagram account as it offers a lot more range of images they can take. I particularly like the fisheye as you can cram a lot of horizon in with the lens.
I didn't use the portrait lens as my iPhone already has a portrait feature but if your phone doesn't then this lens is great for sharpening the subject whilst blurring the background. Once again great for Instagram.
The macro lenses - allowing you to focus 15X closer - was fun to play with as you could up focus on the tiniest object. I enjoyed taking close-up photos of colourful flowers. You could really see the details but you do need a steady hand!
The lenses comes in a compact zip-up pack which takes up little room in a pack or a pocket.
We also received a handy tripod that can act as a selfie-stick and it came with a bluetooth remote so you can set up the shot and be in it. I did like that feature.
RRP: $129.95 each or as part of a Pro kit $369.95
