I’ve been wanting a zoom lens for my iPhone ever since I first seen them.
I was given the opportunity to review one and jumped at the chance. It arrived in a sealed bag with the box neatly packed.
I opened the box and found the lens and underneath was the extra items. Inside were the tripod. The clip that holds the smartphone to the lens. A cleaning cloth and quick instruction booklet.
I looked at the instructions, set it up. Here comes the part where you need patience. It took several and I mean several attempts to align the camera lens and the zoom lens together. To get the smart phone to stay aligned with the zoom lens to secure them together without scratching my phone or losing the alignment between both lens.
Once everything is secured together and there is no fear of the smart phone dropping from the zoom lens clip, the camera is ready to use. You will need to manually focus the lens by using the black ring on the zoom lens. Once you manually focus on your subject, you are able to take the shot.
I’m pretty sure it will be difficult to take photos of moving subjects. This works great for wildlife and still life photos, landscapes or buildings.
Below are a few photos I have taken with the Hizek Zoom lens.
Would I recommend this Hizek Zoom lens?
I would suggest shopping around a bit first. Sure. It does take ok photos. The only thing the really bothers is how difficult and annoying it is to set it up.
