This month ZEISS and Fellowes Brands have unveiled a new range of iPhone camera lenses they have created to offer users a premium mobile photography accessory in the form of three new high-performance add-on smartphone lenses.
The range was showcased at the recent CES 2016 technology show in Las Vegas and consist of a ZEISS iPhone ExoLens wide-angle lens as well as a macro and telephoto lens all with optics by ZEISS.
The lenses have been designed to be used with a bracket that has been specifically created for the ExoLens range and constructed from machined aluminium. The ExoLens bracket also features a useful standard tripod mount as well as a cold shoe for mounting other accessories if required.
Currently the new ExoLens range is available for the Apple iPhone 6/6s and Apple iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus but support for more devices is expected to added in the future but no detail on device models or dates have been revealed as yet. Dr. Winfried Scherle, Executive Vice President of Carl Zeiss AG and Head of the ZEISS Consumer Optics business group explains :
The new lenses are characterized by their leading-edge design featuring smooth surfaces made of black anodized aluminum with white labeling. This is a systematic continuation of the distinctive, innovative product design that typifies current families of ZEISS camera lenses. The modern design offers excellent optic properties and the lenses meet even the highest aesthetic standards.
The lenses of ExoLens with optics by ZEISS are the best currently available on the market. We have achieved the best possible technical balance between a small size, light weight and high image quality.
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
