Brando's fish eye lens and phone mounting magnetic rings

Designed for the iPhone 2G and 3G - although images do show the various lenses fitted to other makes of phone - Brando’s created a wide and macro lens kit, another to give the iPhone’s camera a 2x telephoto lens and a third help snap shots from a fish’s perspective – without getting you wet.

All sets fix around the iPhone’s rear-mounted lens using a supplied magnetic ring and a lanyard’s also thrown in so that you’ll always have a lens to hand.

Brando stated that the macro lens will let the iPhone’s camera see a tiny object clearly, while the wide angle lens is best used for snapping groups of people or landscapes.

One note's been snapped using the macro lens. Can you guess which?

The telephoto lens offers 2x magnification of subjects and the fish-eye lens gives you a viewing angle of “more than 170°”.

All three sets are available now online from Brando. The telephoto and wide and macro kits both cost $17 (£12/€13), but the fish eye lens costs $20 (£14/€15). You can buy all three kits together for $50 (£36/€38). ®
