While iPhone users normally have plenty of options, the new dual lens setup on the iPhone 7 Plus’ second lens makes the usual gamut of accessories incompatible. Kamerar is solving that issue with the first dual lens for the dual lens — a pair designed to sit over both built-in lenses, theoretically eliminating any alignment issues.
The Kamerar’s case protects the smartphone’s sides and back while creating a small pocket to slide the lenses into. When users want to use just the built-in lenses (perhaps for that faked bokeh effect), the lens slides down for storage. A quick flip up aligns the extra lenses over the original.
The kit currently has two options, a fisheye fixed next to a telephoto, and a macro situated next to a zoom lens. Both lens’ sets slide in and out of the same case.
The fisheye/telephoto lens extends the built-in camera’s optical range with both a wider and longer telephoto. With the camera’s 2x optical zoom second lens and a 10x digital zoom, adding the Macro zoom lens extends that range for more detail in close-up shots.
The iPhone 7 Plus lens accessory kit and case is expected to be released next week at a $45 list price. Ztylus says the lens kit will also be on display during January’s CES in Las Vegas.
