Amazing Product Nov 22, 2011
I'm an Architect and Realtor, so I need photos of room interiors, exteriors, construction details, etc. Before digital, I had nice SLR cameras with telephoto and wide angle zoom lenses. After digital, I had point-and-shoot cameras, but nothing with a wide angle lens. Lately, I don't even use cameras, but my HTC Evo smart phone, which takes great shots at 8mp. Problem is, I need the occasional wide angle lens.
I was about to buy a $150 point and shoot camera with wide angle lens, but dreading it; not only the cost, but having to carry another "thing" in the car or pocket. Then I found this tiny, magnetic wide angle/macro lens add on. I didn't expect much, but I figured, for $10, I'll try it.
Got it yesterday, and could not believe how perfect it is. In addition to the lens and stick-on magnetic ring (which fits my Evo perfectly,) it came with a nice little lens cover and a magnetic "key ring" holder. It seems to work great! Nice wide angle lens, and amazing close up macro lens for tiny detail.
I'm about to order another 6 for stocking stuffers for all my staff with smart phones. Bravo to this seller!

EXACT SAME AS CHEAPER BY OTHER SELLER. With Vignetting Mar 31, 2012
By Frank Frank
Ok, so I bought both the $8 model and the $11.50 model. Thinking I could compare the two. They were the exact same A-8001 package. SO lost $5 on that. THey should not allow multiple adv of the same product, will give negative review to seller.
The lens DOES have pretty significant vignetting on the lens in PHOTO mode, but not in video mode. If you are ok with that (ie for fun photos and not business) it is great. See sample photos I am putting up.
Here is a link to the cheaper, same product.

Poor Quality Feb 25, 2012
By Errol Daniels

I need to do closeup shots of people's eyes. This product fails because the optics are very poor and the ring fails to securely stick to the phone surface. A clear example of "you get what you pay for".

Unusable- do not buy Oct 06, 2012
By Peter Crofton
One star is grateful. Lens is junk, and it DOES NOT STICK ON THE IPHONE. So if you're buying this for the iPhone, buy a better one than this. Completely useless, even for taking pictures. Also, where in the hell did the people that wrote the directions learn English??? I guess it was worth the money for the laugh.
Bottom line: look elsewhere, do not buy from this seller period.

Junk lens. Aug 06, 2012
Complete piece of junk. The lens does not magnify but just make the image all blurry. The ring does not stay on the phone. Horrible.
