    Popular photography accessory maker Olloclip today unveiled an all new 4-in-1 photo lens designed for the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus. The 4-in-1 Photo Lens has been completely revamped for Apple's iPhone 6 devices and has gained several new features.

    For the first time, the Olloclip lens is designed to work with both the front and rear-facing cameras, letting users take both traditional photos and selfies with the four lenses. Like previous Olloclip accessories, the newest version includes fisheye, wide-angle, 10x and 15x macro lenses.

    Both the fisheye and the wide-angle lenses provide a wider field of view for iPhone photos, while the two macro lenses are designed for ultra close-up photos.

    A single 4-in-1 Photo Lens is able to fit both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and its new customizable pendant design allows it to be clipped to a backpack, lanyard, key ring, and more for easy access.
    Olloclip's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus lens will be available beginning in late November, but it can be preordered today from the company's website for $79.99.

    Pretty cool concept if you're just carrying around your phone to take pictures.

    Great iPhone camera + lens = awesome!

    I'm still waiting for Apple to put a bayonet mount directly on the phone...

    Where's my Call of Duty® Advanced Warfare™ edition iPhone 6 underslung grenade launcher attachment? I want to shorten my commute by blasting a few holes in walls on my way to work.

    It amazes me that people pay $80 for this, when there are nearly identical, and often time better, versions available for under $20.

    I used to joke that people who wanted 16 MP sensors we're going to find themselves with slr style lens mounts to get sufficient focal length. Here you go.

    It's a neat idea, though, for those with an inclination towards photography.

    Big fan of the older version and now that it works with both front and rear cameras I think I’ll be picking up this one too.

    Now just for it to come to the UK.

    With the resents post of people complaining about overly aggressive noise reduction in the camera software I wonder how that will play with this.

    So, I was referring to the bayonet style mount for camera lenses, as detailed at the link below.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayonet_mount

    But I’d be down with Apple providing a mount for a literal bayonet as well.

    My question is if this works with slim cases such as the iPhone official cases. It is one thing to snap this on when needed. It is a much greater hassle and damage risk to have to remove the case every time before using this. (FYI, I didn't read the official product spec sheet, so this concern might have been addressed there.)

    Aye, then we can mount a bayonet! Just the thing for charging into the work day crowds!

    (Yes, I do know what a bayonet mount is on cameras...)

    No sufficient focal length, here. Only macro, fish, and wide.
    I wish they would have incorporated a tele on this.

    Option R and Option 2 on the Mac. All graphic designers know this. There are also shortcuts you can setup on your iPhone. ® (R) and ™ TM are what I use. The T and M by itself works and I put parenthesis around the R to make it unique.

    If anything, the iPhone 6 has less noise reduction than previous iPhone cameras in the 5 and 5s.

    With the lens poking out they could have done that this time, would have been really cool.
