Digiant 2 in 1 Cell Phone Macro and Wide Angle Lens

I was recently sent the Digiant 2 in 1 Cell Phone Macro and Wide Angle Lens to review.

I take a lot of product and beauty items using my iphone and am always looking for something to help me take better pictures.  I have had a product very similar to this before but it was a lot smaller and fiddlier.

In the box was the clip with the macro and wide angle lens, protected by a lens cover, a separate lens cover for when you remove the wide angle lens, a cleaning cloth and a little leather pouch.

Whats in the box

The lenses themselves are quite wide and the aperture that clips onto the phone is wide so you aren't fiddling to get it central.  The clip is strong and secure - the lens doesn't suddenly slide off while you are taking a picture.  I like that it comes with a lens cap to protect the lens, as I once had something similar and it arrived scratched to pieces.  Both lenses on this product arrived in pristine condition.

Lens and cap

I have taken photos from exactly the same angle and position, one with the lens, one without.  You can see from the photos that the wide angle lens fits in much more than the regular lens, although it does have a slight 'fish bowl' effect.  Using the macro lens I was able to take an incredibly close up picture of a 5p piece.  Without the macro the picture taken from the same distance is just blurry.

I'm really looking forward to improving the quality of my review photos using this item, it will definitely be much used.

The lens clip can be bought on Amazon for £13.99 which is a really good price for this sort of device.  

I was sent this item at a discount for review purposes but all the opinions are my own and unbiased.  This post does contain affiliate links.
