As you all know, I am a blogger, so that means I take many, many pictures. While I do have a nice SLR camera, sometimes it is too much of a pain to lug it out and upload the picture to my computer, so I often wished for better quality pictures on my iphone. Limelens answered this wish and sent me their cell phone lens.

Limelens was founded by UCT (University of Cape Town) student and entrepreneur Tyler Bodmann and has been in development since August 2014. The Limelens team includes Joel Bronner, Faye Jones, James Badenhorst and Michael Dickens. Limelens is driven to create products with the intention to intrigue and enable its ever-evolving photographic community to see, capture and create differently. The Limelens philosophy implores a vision of adventure and discovery through this new creative medium to accumulate to a movement so aptly called The Limelife. Launched in the Spring of 2016, Limelens smartphone accessories offer users the ability to take photos with wider angle and incredible detail while maintaining image quality. Compatible with over 40 smartphone and tablet brands, Limelens is the most versatile lens attachment available to smartphone camera users.
While I am certainly no expert at using the Limelens yet, I have been playing with it and created a few "before and after" Shots for you to admire the lens and its capabilities. At around $99, it is much less expensive than traditional cameras and certainly more user friendly. I love the fish eye lens as well, and feel that it gave a cool effect while I was photographing my daughters party supplies for review.
Overall, I love this lens. The one disadvantage I have run into is that you can not use it in a case, and having three small children, my phone is kept in a case at all time. Otherwise I love it, and would definitely recommend it to my friends who want nice quality pictures without the hassle of a SLR or even a point and shoot camera.
