Go Wide, Fish-Eye and Macro With Only One Adaptor For Your iPhone 4: The olloclip

Via Scoop.itOnline Video Publishing

From the official site: “The olloclip is a quick-connect lens solution for the iPhone 4 that includes fisheye, wide-angle and macro lenses in one small, convenient package that easily fits in your pocket. Nestled in the palm of your hand, the olloclip connects to the iPhone within seconds so you’ll be sure to capture the image you want…if you don’t see the picture you’re looking for just flip it over to switch lenses.The Fisheye lens captures approximately a 180 Degree field-of-view and produces some striking images.The Wide-Angle lens is great for when you need that extra field of view, approximately double that of the normal IPhone.The Macro lens applies roughly a 10X multiplier and allows you to focus the iPhone within 12-15mm of the subject. The Macro lens is cleverly concealed within the olloclip and can be accessed by unscrewing the Wide-Angle lens that is normally attached to it.”Thanks to my great friend Stefanos Karagos of Xplain for introducing me to the Olloclip (among many other cool gadgets and apps).

Leica X1 Camera AG – Excellent Digital Photography, Classic Design

The Leica X1 is the direct beneficiary of 100-plus years of German engineering experience and it delivers the best picture quality in its class – in the proud Leica tradition. This elegant camera features a professional CMOS image sensor that’s as large as those in high-quality SLRs. Combined with an outstanding Leica lens it captures images of unmatched brilliance. Any way you look at it, the Leica X1 is a winner: It’s conveniently compact, its controls are intuitive, and it offers a full range of sophisticated automatic functions. A real Leica “Made in Germany”.
The LEICA ELMARIT 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH.

Countless iconic images in the history of photography were shot with a fixed focal length of 35 mm. This focal length is considered to be a classic for reportage photography, and has lost none of its timeless charisma today. The Leica Elmarit 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH. is a true Leica lens with terrific optical performance. When seen in terms of 35-mm film format, it has precisely this legendary focal length of 35 mm.

This is one very interesting camera introduced to me by a friend in France, who share photos shot during his first trip to Venice, Italy. Wow! Clarity from the big chip inside, and the wonderful wide, precise lens. Nice design and German technology.

UPDATE:  The camera is a little to pricey for me, but I’d love to give it a spin outdoors and inside tech events and tech labs.
Photos of the Leica X1 didn’t it make it through Posterous onto this blog, so here is a video demo I found on YouTube by LeicaRumors.
