Struman Optics Cinematic 2X Zoom Portrait Lens
Want extra zoom out of your iPhone or Android smartphone?
This portrait lens is one of my favourite lens attachments by Struman Optics and one they created after consulting our community - you!
We all know that pinching to digital zoom degrades the image quality. This 2X magnification zoom portrait lens is the same as the second telephoto lens on most modern dual-camera smartphones. This lens also works perfectly on dual-lens cameras. I recommend the backing plate below to ensure this lens fits nicely over the correct lens (the wide-angle).
Like all Struman Optics lenses sold here, the metal clamp is included. And..... you get a travel case and the cleaning cloth!
Why is this 2X portrait lens called a portrait lens?
So glad you asked (insert tongue in cheek emoji). Have you noticed that the built-in wide-angle lens on all smartphones actually make your ears look smaller and pushed around your head and your nose positioned closer to the lens looks larger? This lens corrects that distortion. Taking the photo from a little further back will capture much more accurate and aesthetically pleasing portrait images.
When was the last time you said 'the photo doesn't do it justice'
One of the reasons is the perspective of your smartphones inbuilt wide-angle lens. Remember raising your phone to capture that stunning sunset and being disappointed to see a distant dot on the horizon. This lens brings everything back to the same perspective of what your eyes see.
Like all the Struman Optics lenses, this quality built attachment extends the capability of your existing smartphone camera.
