    Let me start off by saying, I am very picky with my iPhone cases. I searched and searched for a good iPhone 4 case that would work with my fish-eye attachment and finally found one after a year. Recently I have upgraded to the 64 GB iPhone 5 and I hated all the cases that companies came up with. I needed a case that had a big camera hole that would not block my fisheye lens. I still can not find a perfect case that gives good protection and will work with this lens. However, I have been using this Griffin Reveal Case for iPhone 5 and the camera hole is very large except that on the new design of the iPhone 5 they moved the camera a couple millimeters so my magnetic ring would not fit properly. Decided to shave off some of the plastic to make it work. This is the finished product. I hope one day I can find a perfect case. This case will work for now.

    Hey OP! I recently, too, got some lens (Photojojo lens) and have been looking for the right case to fit as well. You're right that the Griffin Reveal is the closest with the large enough hole, though like you said you do need to shave it bigger. Sadly in my quest, I have neither found a big enough whole or found one with a camera hole small enough whereby I could place the magnetic ring on top of.

    And so the quest continues...

    I attached the old style metal rings onto my otter box for the iPhone 4 and that worked but I couldn't use my flash when I has the lens off the case.

    what kind of lens is that? the ones I seen at photojojo have too much blur around the pictures.

    This is the way to go, my friend has one for the iPhone 4s and it is stunning, planning on order the iPhone 5 version when they start shipping.

    It is the photojojo fisheye lens from 2010. I am sure it is the same from now.

    I would have gotten this, but it is expensive and I rather have a case to use with my fisheye lens.

    That doesnt look like a fish eye picture. There is no curvature whatsoever to the horizon, or clouds. Looks like the lens just puts a vignette on the image! Id like to see the same pic taken with it and without.

    Look again. It's clearly a fisheye lens.

    Nice picture, OP.

    This doesn't seem like a quality fisheye lens. Is does just look like there is a vignette around the photo. After comparing the fisheye shot and the one without there is a slight curvature, slight enough to be able to see it.

    Here is another shot. I don't have a separate shot without the fish eye. I accidentally used the flash with this photo so you can tell by green spot.

    Old post, but I just searched "olloclip" since I got one yesterday. I really didn't get a chance to o anything but a super quick test. I hope I'm happy with it, I was hesitant to pay as much as I did. I did notice I will need to hold my phone if fervently when using the attachment.

    The picture with the dog in it is the best one. City lights, sharp architecture is where a fish eye really shows. Try to avoid frames with a lot of natural curves. Nature shots are terrible with fish eye, even with a DSLR.

    What people forget is that, the iPhone is a great camera but you still need good photography to take good pictures.

    The attachment is impressive, go downtown and take pictures of some buildings and street views and you'll REALLY see it shine. :)

    ----------

    I should say, this one is the best shot. Pics like this will really show how nice it is. Also don't forget that because it's a surface attachment, you'll have to be in good lighting to take advantage of it. In dark light, you'll be faced with the other issue amateur photographers have with the iPhone, which is the lack of a respectable flash. :)

    I have the same magnetic lens except I have the macro/wide angle lens. Pretty cool and much more discrete than the olloclip.
