Huntington Beach, Calif. — Mobile photography technology developer Olloclip said it is expanding its Photo Lens offerings to Android mobile device platforms.
The first product is the Olloclip 4-in-1 photo lens for the Samsung Galaxy S5 and S4 smartphones.
Weighing less than one ounce, the Olloclip 4-in-1 is priced at a $69.99 suggested retail and can be purchased at Olloclip.com or through major retailers.
The company said the lens lets Samsung Galaxy users expand their mobile photography with four creative lens options: (fisheye, wide-angle and two macros — 10x and 15x) in one small package weighing less than an ounce.
Olloclip said its quick-change lens system is similar to those available with larger DSLR cameras, but sized to fit in pockets, purses, backpacks and hands.
The 4-in-1 Photo Lens quickly and easily connects to the Samsung Galaxy, sliding on and off simply and easily with no extra parts.
The fisheye and wide-angle lenses can be positioned adjacent to each other, to easily select the appropriate effect from the mobile device’s camera.
The macro lenses are revealed by unscrewing either the fisheye or wide-angle lens.
The Olloclip 4-in-1 Photo Lens works with all photo and video apps, and are made of coated glass and multi-element optics, and aircraft-grade anodized aluminum.

Features in the 4-in-1 for the Galaxy S4 and S5 include:
• a fisheye lens that changes perspective with ultra-wide vision capturing approximately a 180-degree field of view;
• a wide-angle lens with near double the normal field of view;
• a 10x macro lens with an 18mm focus distance; and
• a 15x macro lens with 15x magnification with a 12mm focus distance.
