The Secret to Better Phone Photos: New $29 Lenses – That Saved My Holiday

Sponsored by Lux HD450


Add this lens to your phone and take professional photos (Anywhere?). Personally I have never seen such beautiful photos in my life, all from this little-known smartphone attachment now making big waves across America.

You know that nagging feeling you get when you go on holiday and think you’ve forgotten something?

For me it was all too real. Because the thing I’d forgotten was one of the most vital things I needed to pack.

What did this idiot forget?


I’d spent over one thousand dollars (much to my wife’s tut tutting) on a Canon EOS 7D with a Canon EF 70-300 mm telephoto lens – just for the holiday!

As you can imagine, when I realized I’d left it behind I almost did a 180 spin on the freeway to speed back 200km to get it.

But then I patted my pocket and knew the holiday was saved.

What was in my pocket?

Allow me to explain…

My grandson let me in on a secret

Recently my grandson had shown me Instagram. This is a photo sharing app for your smartphone, where you upload, rate and comment on other people’s photos.

Being a photography buff, I was intrigued. And I was amazed at the quality of some of the photos. I couldn’t believe how crisp and detailed some of them were – including those taken from long distances and across wide areas.

I wondered what their secret was. How did they manage to take photos of this quality on a smartphone?

Thankfully, my grandson was able to let me in on it: Clip on ‘lenses’.

It turns out that there’s a new range of high quality lenses that you just clip onto your smartphone so you can take DSLR style photos with a smartphone.

Well, as you’d expect, I immediately bought a set. I chose the Lux HD450 set based on all the positive reviews.

And boy, was I glad I did!

Our hikes became photography trips of discovery

The beauty of these lenses is that they are small enough for me to carry in my pocket. So naturally, I take them everywhere with me.

You can’t imagine my relief when I was driving along the freeway, on route to Florida, and realized I had them in my pocket. At that moment, I knew I’d still be able to capture quality photos of the grandkids and all the amazing scenery.

Because, let’s face it, landscape shots look TERRIBLE on a smartphone. No matter how many times I upgrade my iPhone, the pinch zoom function still creates smudgy, blurred images with ZERO detail. I nearly always delete them seconds later. But when we went on the Anhinga Trail, I was able to clip on the Telephoto lens and take photos as though I had a DSLR in my hands.

I got some really fantastic wide panoramic shots of the unspoilt countryside of Everglades National Park. Oh, and of course, hundreds of photos of the grandkids all together with wading birds in the background, all shown in rich detail you’d never get with the iPhone’s standard lens.

In fact, everyone was so impressed with the photos (we have a shared folder on Dropbox) that I may even leave my bulky DSLR at home. I’m sure my wife will be happy with the refund!

Simon Greig, lead technologist from Stuttgart, said this on the record: “We set our design goals to make these lenses the finest in the world, bar none. We used the highest quality optics, rugged barrel materials, and ultra precision multi-coatings to deliver ultra-sharp focus and sparkling image quality.

Welcome to 2016 – as new high-definition technology and image-improving innovation continues to blossom and bloom, more tactical tools with better practical functionality behind them are starting to boom. Our favorite gadgets and devices, such as high performance mobile phone camera lenses are starting to flood the marketplace because they make life just a little grander.

How does the power of DSLR-like resolution photos in the palm of your own hand sound? How about enhancing your personal selfies, social networking events, pictures with longtime friends or just all out beautiful photos along with Ultra HD video capability – all without any required modifications, permanent changes or harm to your phone? Clip On, Clip Off.

The 3 in 1 Lux HD450 Smartphone Camera Lens System delivers you professional photography power and crazy-cool camera-capturing capabilities that produce the best images and quality photos for your most memorable and magical moments.

Lenses open up new possibilities

It’s like a new pair of specs for your phone

As any photography nut will tell you, a great photo is a combination of background and foreground. With a smartphone, you normally have to sacrifice background detail due to the lens. But with the Lux HD450 you can get the best of both worlds, and more…

The Lux HD450 comprises of THREE different lenses. The one I used the most was the Telephoto lens from viewing points along the boardwalk. I could take photos of sunning alligators from hundreds of feet away with none of that awful blurring you get with a smartphone’s pinch zoom. I could literally double the gators in size and with ZERO loss of resolution.

The Lux HD450 also has a Fisheye lens for a rounded shots. There is simply no way a smartphone can take hemisphere light shots without this lens. The fisheye is great for taking more creative shots that look as though they were taken inside a goldfish bowl.

Now my grandkids had a lot of fun with the third lens. The Macro lens is like strapping a microscope onto your smartphone. With this you can take incredible detailed photos of creepy crawlies, flower buds and all the wonderful detail of the small things found in nature.

I paid $116 for mine. You can get yours for $29

The Lux HD450 are classed as premium lenses, and are priced accordingly. I paid $116 for my set, and I was happy to do so due to the improvement in quality.

However, if this sounds expensive, you’re in luck.

Because its manufacturers appear to be still growing the brand (or are in a generous mood) as I found that on their website they’re offering a 75% discount (which equates to $87 off the normal retail price).

This was part of my reason for writing this post – I want other photography nuts like me to be able to take advantage and save some cash.

But when you have the Lux HD450 in your pocket, all you need to do is clip on a lens and you can immediately take wide panoramic shots or photos of loved ones with all the background and surroundings in rich detail.

Trust me, $29 is a small price to pay for the number of priceless memories you’ll capture with this set of lenses (all the other lenses in this quality range are over $100).

I’m not sure how long they’re offering such a big discount for. So I’d get yours while you can. You won’t regret it!
