Zeiss and ExoLens Teamed Up for Smart­phoneOp­ti­mized Lenses

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE -

Leg­endary lens man­u­fac­turer Zeiss re­cently teamed up with smart­phone ac­ces­sory man­u­fac­turer ExoLens to come up with a range of lenses for smart­phones. Cur­rently, the range con­sists of three prod­ucts for the iPhone – a macro lens, a widean­gle lens, and a tele­photo lens. The macro lens lets you fo­cus as close as 30 mm, the wide-an­gle lens of­fers a 0.6x mag­ni­fi­ca­tion to give an 18 mm fo­cal length, while the tele­photo lens of­fers 2x mag­ni­fi­ca­tion to give an 58 mm fo­cal length.

The tele­photo and wide-an­gle range of lenses is called Mu­tar, while the macro lens is called the Vario-Proxar. All th­ese lenses have been de­signed to sup­press chro­matic aber­ra­tions, and min­i­mize dis­tor­tion. They’ve also been coated with Zeiss’ fa­mous T* coat­ing for op­ti­mum con­trast and clar­ity.

The lenses are at­tached to the iPhone via an ExoLens alu­minum bracket us­ing a screw thread. This bracket has a stan­dard tri­pod mount, as well as a socket for mount­ing ad­di­tional ac­ces­sories. Cur­rently, the bracket is only com­pat­i­ble with the iPhone 6/6s, and 6 Plus/6s Plus.
