Aukey Ora Lens

AUKEY ORA LENS

When you need to shoot in a wider angle than your mobile phone’s built in camera can provide, it’s time to think about adding a clip-on lens to give you the effect you are looking for. I use this Ora Wide Angle Lens from Aukey,

The Ora 2-in-1 Lens Set includes a 120° Wide Angle Lens + a 15x Macro Lens - Ideal for a variety of photography scenarios.

  • Macro Lens gets you 15x closer to your subject for extremely detailed close-ups textures and objects (Position lens 0.4" - 1" from the subject to get clearer pictures). For better performance and fit, try removing any phone case
