Want to know how to unlock mega zoom on your iPhone?
That new Telephoto or Macro lens works great over iPhone X’s Telephoto camera!
Your new olloclip lens system for iPhone X is equipped to work with a Telephoto or Macro lens over the Telephoto camera - doubling the effect of the lens.
iPhone 8/7 Plus users can also align over the Telephoto camera on their device by flipping the lens in the clip
USING IPHONE'S CAMERA APP:
- Attach the lens system with the Telephoto or Macro lens aligned with the T/2x on the back of the clip.
- Open the iPhone Camera app.
- Select “Portrait” from the options menu - this hard selects use of the Telephoto camera only.
WHY the BLACK SCREEN?... Because the Apple Camera app switches intermittently between the Wide-Angle and Telephoto cameras, digital zoom is only possible at less than 2x. After 2x zoom, the Apple Camera app triggers intermittent use of the Telephoto or Wide-Angle cameras based on available light. For this reason, it is very likely you will encounter a black screen if attempting to zoom in the Apple Camera app.
NOTE: The "depth of field" effect in Portrait Mode will not work because the lens system is covering the Wide-Angle camera (the Wide-Angle camera is what creates the soft focused background). However, the Telephoto lens is a great for portraits because of its shallower depth of field and natural ability to separate a subject from distinctly its background.
In “Portrait” you will achieve a fixed 4x optical zoom when combining the Telephoto lens over the Telephoto camera. Digital zoom is disabled in Portrait mode.
How do I ZOOM?
Additional features, like zoom, can be achieved with use of a 3rd party app (e.g. ProCamera) which allows you to select between the Telephoto & Wide-Angle cameras.
You are now set to full functionality of the Telephoto camera - including features like digital zoom up to 24x when combining the Telephoto lens with the Telephoto camera.
