SANDMARC, the company specialized in iPhone, GoPro, DJI & DSLR cameras lenses and filters, has just introduced a new line of products specifically made for the iPhone 11 Pro Max, 11 Pro, and iPhone 11. These new products include an anamorphic lens, a telephoto lens, a wide-angle lens, and a macro lens. But with three cameras, including a wide-angle lens and a telephoto, how can these products enhance your possibilities? Let’s take a closer look at it!
SANDMARC 1.33x Anamorphic Lens
The team at SANDMARC is moving fast, and earlier this year, we already reported about their anamorphic lens for iPhones. With the release a couple of months ago of the iPhone 11 Pro Max and 11 Pro that features three built-in cameras and an even better video quality compared to the previous generations, the results you can get with this 1.33x anamorphic lens should look even sweeter.
The lens adapter gives you a cinemascope 2.4:1 wide aspect ratio when you “de-squeeze” the original 16:9 image coming out of the iPhone. Part of shooting with an anamorphic lens, your footage will have a beautiful oval bokeh as well as light-streak lens flares.
Next up is the SANDMARC telephoto lens. With the iPhone 11 Pro Max and 11 Pro that features a built-in 2x telephoto lens, this is not an essential product in the line. Sure, it is useful for iPhone 11 users out there. Otherwise, if you use it with an iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max, this 2x telephoto lens gives you an up to 4x zoom, equivalent to a 60mm lens.
The macro lens, as its name suggests, allows you to capture outstanding details of a subject at a close distance. It features a protective lens hood to protect the front element, so no matter how close you are to your item, your lens will stay pristine.
Last but not least, and the same as the telephoto lens, the wide lens is not the immediate lens you think you need. Indeed, all the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro features a built-in wide-angle lens. Otherwise, when shooting with this lens, the incredible night mode is not available. But, by using the SANDMARC wide lens attached to your iPhone, you get the same wide field of view, with the ability to use the night mode.
All the SANDMARC lenses feature a front filter thread (40.66 mm) and are compatible with their line of filters for photography and filmmaking. This line of filters includes drama filter, scape filter, and hybrid filter.
Pricing and Availability
All the lenses adapters and filters are made out of durable aluminum and feature multiple optical elements that are multi-coated. To mount a lens adapter, you need a particular iPhone case that is included with every lens you buy, as well as a clip mount, front/back caps, and a pouch.
The macro lens retails for $89.99, the telephoto and wide-angle lenses retails for $99.99 each, and the anamorphic lens is $159.99. The filters will cost you between $69.99 up to $129.99, depending on the model you want. All products are available now through SANDMARC’s website.
