iPhone macro photography made easy with Blips Smartphone Lens Kits

There are tons of macro and wide angle lens kits for iPhones, but they all share some common issues: they’re usually expensive and bulky. Blips Smartphone Lens Kits take care of those problems, with a low cost of just $24.99 in our Deals Shop and a profile that makes it easy to carry the lenses with you wherever you go.

These minuscule lenses use a reusable adhesive to attach to your iPhone, and come in a matchbook-like carrier that’s easy to slip into your wallet or pocket. The macro lens provides a 10x magnification at a focal length around 10mm, while the macro plus lens bumps that focal length to around 20mm. 

Blips started with a crowdfunding program that brought not only the lenses but a complete microscopy kit called the Ultra Lab Kit ($52.99). If you have a fascination with the micro world, you’ll love this kit, which comes with:

  • Blips Ultra lens
  • Micro lens
  • Macro lens
  • 2 sponges
  • Light source
  • Smartphone stage
  • 6 prepared slides
  • Spare multi-usable adhesive tape

It’s perfect for you or the budding scientist in your life! Remember, it’s never too early to start thinking about holiday gifting, and Blips make a great gift or stocking stuffer.
