Christmas present ideas for Iphone users

So, in other news…

Can I point you in the direction of the rather fabulous Olloclip, an uplifting little gadget for anyone who uses their Iphone to take photos and an absolute MUST if you are a keen instagram user.

The small devise of three lenses (wide angle, fish eye and super-close-up macro) fits neatly over your Iphone (sorry, Blackberry users) and allows you to expand the use of your phone camera. I have been using mine for a couple of months -those who follow us on Instagram will have seen these pictures here as I practised -and I love it. You don’t have to press any buttons or down load any aps, it just works instantly and the lens quality is amazing.

I use the macro lens mostly, it is fantastic for getting close up on flowers and fabric textures, but the wide angle is also great for shooting store interiors (which I do for the day job, a lot) but would be good for home shots and group-people shots. I never use the fish eye, but maybe I will someday for an arty shot…

It is very compact and fits into its own little draw string bag so you can carry it around in your handbag. And it’s not super expensive, about £58 on Amazon. For a more indepth analysis of what it does, you might like to check out Wired, where it got raves reviews from some proper camera geeks. A perfect Christmas gift for someone.
