For iPhone at present it is difficultly to amaze someone with an external lens. Started at first 2012 on Kickstarter the Olloclip project made that sort devices very popular. Well and developers of the original on a place do not stand. Nevertheless, far not always optical devices amuse quality, and here cost on them "bites". On the last measure, in the Russian Federation and the friendly countries close. But there are also exceptions. To me some lenses got to hands from the Barey company which appeared that exception, sudden and, speaking frankly, pleasant.
Set of lenses of Barey 3 in 1. At once, with a secret
When to me the set of lenses got to hands «Barey 3 in 1», something it seems was the first idea: «Well here, one more perebrendirovanny kitayshchina». But having twisted a box in hands, I changed the outlook a little. The quite good blister with high-quality polygraphy and good design of packing as a whole, thus with the description in 2 languages: Russian and British. I there did not find hieroglyphs.
The set too appeared impressing: three various lenses about which I will in more detail tell the sack from microfiber, on two protective covers for each "glass", covers overlays for iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 is sensitive below.
Specifically by means of covers fastening of lenses to iPhone, thus not at the expense of a friction also is carried out. Devices are wound that perfectly and firmly.
By the way, covers appeared very much and very nice. Executed from opaque smoky plastic, they easy, thin and careful — agnails and traces of molding it is not perceptible, a rough surface pleasant to the touch, sides are rounded. Cut under an apple logo in model for iPhone 5, but this matter of taste did not attract only:
Without thinking twice, I set up a device on own phone, thus without special efforts. Device dimensions actually did not exchange, short of an acting place of landing under a lens:
Though there was one aspect. The fixing element for a lens a little acts over the top side, and to reap on the button of a food becomes not so comfortably, but it is possible to get used.
As to lenses, in a set is фишай, it is a fish eye, a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens. They are executed greatly: the case from aluminum, lenses from multilayer glass. It is pleasantly to hold, to use …, and about use let’s have a talk in more detail.
The first decided to test фишай, the small which focal length makes 40 mm, and in a design three elements in the 3rd groups are used. Not especially big copy, but supports borders of phone nevertheless decently:
By means of that lens it is possible to receive actually 180-degree panorama entered in a circle. In other words, it is circular model and to realize, as it works, I suggest to look at an example comparison. the 1st picture — without a lens, the 2nd — from the same place, but already with fishay:
To quality of claims is not present, nevertheless speech about the telephone chamber. Completely for itself good option for creativity manifestation in an instagrammchik and social networks.
But the most fascinating began, when I tried to remove a device, for earlier having paid attention to «Macro» inscription — to what it here?
It appears, the highest part is turned off (specifically it I by a case and turned off, заместо to remove a lens absolutely) and on phone there is a macrolens with the smallest distance of focusing in 18 mm and optical increase 1,5х:
Obvious mentions of it on packing are not present but if to get accustomed to small bukvochka from the back, there several times the word Macro nevertheless meets. Namely, except the fishy the wide-angle lens is untwisted also. Its makrosostavlyushchy vtochnost same.
Well, let’s have a look at a result of work of a lens:
The same bug, but it got away from focus, but it is possible to consider structure of a bark of a tree truly
The dried-up leaf
Even more entertainingly video shot in a mode macro looks:
Shirokougolnik not so впечатляющ on the abilities, but it increases a review corner already for 40 %. For creation of panoramas, plus it is possible to use the good tool as the video registrar. The next example comparison is lower:
Photo without a lens
The photo with a lens, made from just the same place, as a picture is higher. You see in a shot much more landscape was located
The telephoto lens provides double optical increase drawings, without fall светосилы own lens of iPhone. Works perfectly with that exception that on each side the image leaves dim (as well as above — the 1st picture in group without a lens, the 2nd — with a lens):
Macrolenses and фишай, though a couple of others too совладевает with own task appeared the most effective. Pleased quality of assembly and materials, well and as a whole — a set tremendous, though not cheap. Question cost — 3990 rub.
- the set will be suitable for iPhone 4/4S and for iPhone 5;
- high-quality cover;
- lenses are executed from aluminum and glass;
- devices are simple for establishing and removing.
- the telephoto lens distorts a picture on each side a little.
Telephoto Barey lens. A telescope from iPhone
It, for certain, the most unusual lens from all that were fallen me into hands or, at least, the most healthy. The device weighs even more than iPhone — 118г. Though impressing at it not only only weight and a delivery set.
The product is delivered in a high-quality box from a rigid cardboard with a jacket. The description in the Russian and British languages, as well as in the set considered above.
Snutri of boxing found many fascinating things, and are concrete:
- covers for iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 (a vtochnost same, as well as in a set «3 in 1»);
- lens with 2 protective lids;
- sack from кожзама for lens carrying;
- rag for rubbing of lenses.
The device is felt in a hand perfectly and wholly, it is pleasant to hold, more pleasantly and to use. Absolutely iron, it consists of 2 parts: a lens, also a ring with an opening under a support and a clip. Not including that, there is a ring of fine tuning of focusing (it is painted in dark color). The sudden moment, frankly speaking, but I made sure of its importance practically from the first shots.
As well as the lens, a complete support is executed from metal. Simple, but the necessary veshchichka with spherical fastening of a head and not telescopic legs. To a support the lens fastens specifically, and iPhone is ordinary hangs on the last:
Voobshchem, phone with the established telephoto a lens looks cheerfully, as if the main part of a design — is a powerful dural tube:
But, the main thing, as they say, a result, and it is very good. To me it was curious, as it is real and whether can be to work with an accessory from hands. Nevertheless 12-fold optical increase without optical stabilization of the image — is a rattling mix on creation of the greased shots. Well, I can safely declare that in a "manual" mode a sheaf completely working.
Naturally, to detain phone without movement it is rather difficult, the lens very much outweighs. Besides far not always the chamber is directed by the machine gun at sharpness and in that case the ring of focusing mentioned above very helps. Perfectly that it is made so wide, plus has a smooth course — to use comfortably. And when do a picture, it is necessary is ordinary to catch a suitable detail in a shot because the smallest movement decently shifts it. I will remind that there is a speech about shooting from hands. With a support everything is much simpler, to find only an emphasis for it.
Finally, after small training and several attempts I received here that result from hands (the 1st shot — without a lens, the 2nd — with a lens):
On a photo a monument to Bogdan Khmelnytsky in Chernigov
It is necessary to recognize what under way to remove by means of this lens very difficult. On the other hand, nothing prevents to put phone on any emphasis, whether it be a shop, a fence, etc. If there is a minute, it is possible to fasten also a support which spherical head gives enough freedom for creation of fascinating shots. Besides direct attention that the device does not lower quantity of light getting to the iPhone chamber. The picture opposite leaves even brighter.
The telephoto a lens — is the good tool for fans mobile a photo and excellent thought for a gift to such fan. Question cost — 2990 rub.
- high-quality design and good stuff (lenses from multilayer glass, the case from aluminum);
- focus ring;
- the provided set;
- it is heavy to do pictures from hands;
- solid weight of a lens.
I was personally pleasantly surprised with quality of production of Barey. Yes, costs much, but for comparable means in Russian market are offered and essentially more ordinary decisions. The same Olloclip is more expensive even (in the Russian Federation), but the considered set is more functional also it more universal. Lenses high-quality, perfectly collected, you take in hands — you feel "Thing", and there is no feeling that you obviously overpaid for any unusual toy. In general, it also is a toy, but a toy high-quality, cool, allowing to create noteworthy shots and to create, turning iPhone into the camera with replaceable lenses. Everything, is time to storm Instagram :).
