V-Gear Mobi Lens MW
The V-Gear Mobi Lens MW expands the options available to cameraphone owners. It can also be used with standalone cameras that are missing filter threads. The package contains a pair of lens attachments: one for wide-angle shots, and the other for macro views (i.e. extreme close-ups). The lenses can be combined for a panoramic effect. Each one has an aluminum frame, and attaches to a phone or camera through stick-on magnetic rings. Caps protect the glass and a strap makes the lenses easier to carry. The Mobi Lens kit is now on sale in Japan for the price of 1,400 yen ($12) including local taxes.
