    Default About those lenses with magnetic rings

    For those who have tried them, are they any good? I saw them on Photojojo and some on eBay too, I'm thinking of getting one but I am not sure yet.
    Also, how do they compare to the Olloclip? I guessing it should be the same quality...
    I was also wondering if it will fit with a bumper on or the Case-Mate Barely There case (as it has a large cutout for the camera)?

    Thank you for reading

    Olloclip is not magnetic. It just slides on. And I can't speak for the Photojojo stuff, but the Olloclip doesn't work with any case, and doesn't work with most screen protectors either, it ripped my Zaggs right off. It works ok with the Power Support matte ones from Apple stores, but you have to sometimes push them back down again.

    Also--I need to add to my review of this, but my camera hasn't been a great focuser since I used the Olloclip with it.

    I had a lens with a magnetic ring back with my 3GS. Loved it. It came with several rings, so I put them on a few cases.

    Now I'm using strictly the Easy Macro lens (I haven't found anything decent for distance), and it's totally awesome and works with any case on any phone. Hit the link in my sig for a full review.
