(Actual photo taken with the iPhone Olloclip Lens kit)

Olloclip makes the most well-known and respected interchangeable camera Lens kit for Apple iPhones, iPods and more. 9to5Mac spent some time with the iPhone 4 version of this Lens kit and found that “the Ollopclip camera lens kit obviously makes already impressive iPhone photos even more impressive. We recommend it for anyone …who really need sharper shots.” The kit includes a fish-eye, macro and a wide-angle lens. For more on the kit and some sample photos be sure to check out 9to5Mac’s full review.

Screen Shot 2013-05-11 at 1.34.58 PM

The big news that recently came down from Olloclip is that they are going to be offering a Quick-Flip Case for iPhone 4/4S/5 and iPod Touch. This case is built to protect your iPhone while making it easy to change the Olloclip Lens when a photo opportunity presents itself. Even more exciting is the photography functionality this case adds…

The case also comes with a detachable Pro-Photo adapter for mounting your iPhone to a tripod in portrait or landscape. The adapter also has a cold shoe bracket for attaching microphones, lights and other accessories. Finally, the rotating corner becomes a dedicated shutter button for quickly snapping photos.

The Quick-Flip Case retails for $50 but for a limited time, Olloclip is offering two exclusive deals:

Quick-Flip case and Pro-Photo adapter for just $40 (Reg. $50) Olloclip 3-in-1 lens system and the Quick-Flip Case and Pro-Photo adapter for just $90 (Reg. $120)

The bundle is a terrific deal since discounts and promos are typically very scarce on the iPhone Lens kit. Use coupon code “OLLOCASE10” to cash in on these savings.

Head over to the official Olloclip website now to place your preorder, they are available in white and translucent black.
