Schneider Optics Now Shipping 2X Tele Lens for iPro Lens System
29 June 2012 — Renowned lens maker Schneider Optics announces it is now delivering its iPro 2X Tele lens for the iPro lens system, a family of superior-quality lenses for the iPhone 4/4S.
The new 2X Tele is equivalent to a 60mm lens on a 35mm SLR (84mm in video mode). It not only allows the iPhone photographer to get closer to the action with its 31° field of view for still photos (23° in the video mode), but can provide more pleasing portrait shots, without exhibiting distortion. Resulting images feature edge-to-edge sharpness, with no vignetting.
The iPro 2X Tele lens joins two other lenses in the iPro family: the iPro Wide Angle, which increases the iPhone’s field-of-view by 35 percent; and the Fisheye, which provides a wow-ing 165° field of view for incredible panorama shots.
Schneider Optics’ iPro Lens System is purpose built for the iPhone 4 and 4S. It features a rugged black iPhone case with a bayonet mount to allow iPro lenses to be quickly and securely interchanged on the iPhone. The iPro Lens System’s professional optics are simple to use, easy to handle, and smartly self-storing. The lenses nest in a case that doubles as a handle. It offers comfortable hand-holding, helps stabilize the iPhone and protects the lenses. Plus the handle has a ¼-20 screw adapter to mount on a tripod or monopod for additional stability.
iPro lens housings are precision machined from aluminum alloy and anodized for durability. The lens elements are ground and polished from top grade optical glass and lenses feature multi-layer anti-reflection coatings to avoid flare.
List price for the new iPro 2X Telephoto lens, handle extension and lens cap is $105 (iPhone case and handle is not included). The 2X is fully compatible with existing iPro Lens Systems.
