olloclip® 3-in-1 Photo Lens Introduces iPod touch (5th generation) Adapter
iPod touch users can now capture full-frame fish eye and wide-angle photos and video in HD using olloclip’s iPhone Lens with specially designed adapter
Hunting Beach, Calif. – February 27, 2013 – olloclip® introduces a new and innovative camera lens solution for the iPod touch (5th generation) device. iPod touch owners can now use olloclip’s award-winning 3-in-1 photo lens for iPhone 5 which includes a Fisheye, Wide-Angle and Macro lenses, by simply slipping on the specially designed adapter over the iPod touch (5th generation) camera lens. Those who already own an olloclip for their iPhone 5 can also enjoy using it with their iPod touch.
The olloclip on iPod touch lets users capture fisheye and wide-angle photos and video in HD, ideal for everyone from videographers to adventurers capturing skate videos, photos and more. The olloclip macro lens is ideal for ultimate close-ups when shooting small objects at close distances, magnifying the image roughly 10 times.
“We’ve received requests for the iPod touch (5th generation) adapter since olloclip for the iPhone 5 launched,” said Patrick O’Neill, inventor and CEO of olloclip. “The difficultly was developing an adapter that securely fit the curvature of iPod touch (4th and 5th generation) without comprising the image. We found a way to do it and are pleased to now bring iPhoneography to the population of iPod touch users worldwide. ”
Nestled in the palm of your hand, the olloclip and adapter connect to the iPod touch within seconds and automatically aligns itself over the camera. The iPod touch’s camera auto focuses normally through the olloclip and selecting a lens is as simple as flipping over the olloclip lens.
· The olloclip Fisheye Lens captures approximately a 180° field-of-view.
· The Wide-Angle Lens nearly doubles the iPod Touch’s normal perspective.
· The Macro Lens applies roughly a 10X multiplier and is cleverly concealed within the olloclip by unscrewing the Wide-Angle lens.
The olloclip 3-in-1 quick-connect lens solution is an add-on accessory that works with all iPhone apps, both in video and photo modes. The olloclip for the iPhone 4/4S and 5 retails for $69.99 USD. The olloclip iPod touch Adapter is available for iPod touch 4th generation (compatible with iPhone 4 lens) and 5th generation (compatible with iPhone 5 lens) through olloclip.com and retails for $9.99 for two adapters. It also comes in the package when purchasing a new olloclip 3-in-1 lens.
