Clip-on iPhone lenses give you better pictures without editing

There’s no shortage of photo filtering software on the iPhone and iPad. But, really, if you’re going to do photography on a phone, why screw around? You should use lenses.

Courtesy iPhone accessory maker Gizmon comes the solution: clip-on lenses. You simply slide the clip over the top of your iPhone or iPad, and the lens slots into place perfectly. It allows you to change lenses quickly and simply: just slide the clip off and put it somewhere the lens won’t get scratched.

Currently, the lenses only come in three types: a fisheye lens, for those extreme wide shots; a polarizing filter, to cut down on glare and washed out images (seriously, attach this if you find that’s a problem, it really does help), and a “three-image mirage filter”, which we assume does something goofy and cliched. But at $35 a pop, who cares: you can have all three handy when you need them.
