6 Fisheye Lens You Absolutely Need for Your Phone


6. Optikal Universal Devil’s Eye Fisheye Lens

This little fisheye lens is specifically designed for your phone or any other small camera that’s fitted on a very slim device. This little lens comes equipped with a spring handle that will let you pin it directly on your phone, kind of like children’s hairclips. It’s even colorful like a kid’s hairclip: it’s white and made of aluminum and it has an orange ring inside the camera that gives it a nice contrast.

In terms of performance, the image from this fisheye lens is surprisingly good and reviewers have said mainly positive things about it.

5. SBX 180 Degree Fisheye Lens

Extremely similar to the previous one, what sets this one aside is that it doesn’t look like a hairclip, but rather like a rubber band. Don’t be misled, though: it still features a clip, it’s just not that obvious. Like most cameras we’ll mention here, it’s also usable in reverse position to take a fisheye lens selfie (double the hipster effect by adding a cool Instagram filter). SBX mention that this one is trademarked, even though we haven’t heard of SBX by now. Also includes a lens cap, which is nice.

4. i-Kawachi Universal 4 in 1 Clip Design Fisheye Lens

We’re not going to lie: standalone fisheye lens for iPhone are just unjustifiably expensive. This one, on the other hand, is a set. For about $13, you can get this set featuring a basic 180 degrees fisheye lens, a wide lens, a super wide lens, and as a bonus, you also get a macro lens. The latter one will enlarge your image by 10 times. The design is also really innovative because it features a sliding clip so that it will work on a multitude of devices.

3. K&F Concept 3 in 1 Universal Fisheye Lens

Going from 4 in 1 to 3 in 1 isn’t really practical, we know. However, the K&F concept is a really interesting one because it combines the hairclip design we saw at number 10 on this list and makes it better. How? By improving the quality of the lenses, by adding 2 more lenses to the package and by painting it all in a nice shade of whatever color you can think of (diabetes pink, blinding blue, cheesy yellow, stark green?). The other lenses in the package are a wide lens which can enlarge the field of view by 0.67x and a basic macro lens.

2. Polaroid 238° Fisheye Lens

Kicking things up a notch, we have this superb Polaroid 238° fisheye lens for iPhone devices. Compared to the other lenses on this list, this one really is superb quality. The lenses are authorized by Polaroid and can produce absolutely stunning images with an incredibly wide 238-degree field of view. And the lens is also really easy to attach. It can be put on just about any camera and it will turn your boring photo or video into something that will awe just about anybody. The best part about it is that it actually looks like a fisheye lens.

1. Extendable Selfie Stick with Fisheye Lens

Yes, you did read that right! Why on Earth somebody would need a selfie-stick that also carries a fisheye lens for iPhone is beyond me. Still, this little doohickey is the best way to start a wacky party. Simply pop your iPhone into the respective slot and take wild and wide photos of you and your friends. Then post the photos on Facebook and then watch how everybody on your friends list is awed at how amazing your photos are. Or you could just enjoy the part – it’s up to you. Still, this is a good semi-gag, semi-useful gift.
