I've run in-studio test, having my iPhone 4s mounted on a tripod, as well as doing the same test outside. I also took many shots all around just to show more examples of what look you'll be getting using each lens. Read full post here:https://www.photigy.com/selecting-the...

iPro Lens System for iPhone 4/4S
iPro Lens 2X Tele Lens
Kogeto -- iCONIC iPhone 4 / 4S

iPhone mCAMLITE Mount for iPhone 4 / 4S

I had iPhone mounted with all respect on my old and cool carbon fiber tripod for both, in-studio and outside tests. I've used 645Pro camera application (it is proved to deliver the best image quality in a single TIFF shot), set on five sec timer to ensure shake-free shots. ISO was between 64 and 80 for both, in and out shots. Aperture was wide open, F2.4 on all of the shots. Meaning it was a tough job for the lens:-)

So, which system is better? German super multicoated glass from Schneider (iPro Lenses) or ALM mCAMLITE Mount for iPhone 4S with its huge camcorder-stolen lens and half inch thick billet aluminum body?

For everyday use I'd definitely go with Schneider iPro set: It delivers great image quality, it's small, it has the best lens mount and storage for lenses (again, read my first part of the review). The only real drawback is it's price: $300 for a set of 3 lenses for your smartphone might be too much for many iPhoneography fans. From other point of view, the price was never a big deal for many Apple brand users, as they get use to paying 1.5-2 times more for things they love. If you are one of them, do not hesitate and get the iPro lenses, you'll never regret it

And what about ALM mCAMLITE lenses? With this monster you will forget that you use a smartphone:-) It feels like Leica (yep, we can think like this:-), it works great as a self defense device (try to drop it fully loaded with iPhone on your feet, and you'll understand me), it attracts chicks curious glances from strangers standing around, and it takes great photos and even greater videos! You'll love it if you are not a "regular" consumer and prefer to find your own ways of enjoying the life... and if you have an extra $150:-)
