Everyone knows that the iPhone X has one of the most sophisticated and advanced camera system of any smartphone on the market, only rivaled by Samsung's Galaxy S9 and Google's Pixel 2, but with Olloclip's new lens kit for iPhone X, you can make it even better.

The iPhone X already has two lenses on its back camera, one telephoto and one wide-angle, but the glass on these are very small for technical reasons and when it comes to lenses the glass it what you are paying for. Olloclips new lens kit clips right onto your iPhone X and gives you better glass than what is already on the phone. 

Let's be clear, the camera system on iPhone X, and the Galaxy S9 and Pixel 2, are very good and for most purposes do not need any improvement, but if you want a shot to look a certain way or have more control over the style of the shot, then these may be what you are looking for.

In total, Olloclip is offering six different styles of lens for your iPhone: Super-Wide, Ultra-Wide, Fisheye, Telephoto, Macro 14X, and Macro 21X. 

These lenses work with your camera system to give you shots that may be difficult to produce well with just the built-in lenses. Whether it's widening the field of view with the wides, getting a better zoom with the telephoto, or enhancing those super-close-ups with the macro lenses, you'll find that these lenses will enhance your video.

Additionally, Olloclip has updated their previous versions to be compatible with iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. 

Buy all of these from Olloclip and get their bundle for $99.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.

What TV News Could Be
February 26, 2024

When television was invented in the 1930s, no one knew what TV news was supposed to look like. The medium had never existed before, and so, like Gutenberg half a millennium, prior, the first creators of TV news had to fall back on a medium with which they were familiar, and that was radio.

Maybe scary stories drive ratings… or maybe they don’t.
