Camkix Deluxe 5 In 1 Lens Kit Review

3:46 AM

Every time I try to improve my hand at my DSLR,I often end up being an amateur.With the cameras in our phones getting better and with the desire to travel light every time,we often end up taking more pictures from our phones than our DSLR’s.I wouldn’t say what I write below is in any way a substitute to full blown DSLR lens,but nonetheless very useful to clip on with Digital Cameras,PC’s and SmartPhones(The lenses included in this set can be used with a wide range of cell phones and mobile devices including iPhone 6, 6+, 5, 5C, 5S, 4, 3; Samsung Galaxy S6, S5, S4, S3; iPad Air 2, Air, 4, 3, 2; and many more) and adds onto your photography.Let’s today review Camkix Deluxe 5 in 1 Camera Lens Kit.Watch my video for a more detailed review on how it works on phone and PC:

 The Lens Kit of Camkix keeps each of these small lenses in place.These lenses are so tiny that keeping them separate would mean losing them every time. The kit comes with a hook that can be attached to your belt or your camera bag belt.That means you don’t have to carry them separately,if you wish to.

 The Kit comes with 5 lenses namely - Telephoto,Macro,CPL,Fisheye and Wide Angle Lens.Compared to the full blown DSLR lenses,these are very affordable and easy to use.Each of them has its own purpose.

 Let’s begin with my favorite.My Favorite is Macro.

Macro Lens

Macro lens enables you to get super close to the object and pick up details.That also creates a blur surrounding the object not in focus and captures beautiful images.The above picture is of Orange Marigold(Genda) flower.

Fish Eye Lens

 A Fish Eye Lens captures rounded wide angle images.

Bee and surroundings captured with Telephoto

 Telephoto Lens captures images with 2x optical magnification ,so an object which is far would be near in your capture which is very useful in capturing a bit of a wildlife and other stuff.Since the zoom is 2x it will capture pictures a bit far but not extreme far.

 Wide Angle Lens helps capture wider scenes for example cityscapes,group shots and more.

Before CPL Lens

After CPL Lens

 A CPL Lens reduces glare and captures more vibrant colors.That comes handy when It's very sunny (rather shiny) and you want it to be a little toned down.

Advantages of Using Camkix Deluxe 5 in 1 Lens Kit are:

1)It helps to create different kind of pictures with your phone or your digital camera

2)You can view larger family members on Skype with wide lens.

3)Camkix lenses are sturdy,the built is well made unlike the last one(unbranded) which I bought which fell apart.

4)Very lightweight and easy to carry

Disadvantages of Using Camkix Deluxe 5 in 1 Lens Kit are: 

1)The Macro lens is not a replacement for a portrait( 50 mm) lens.You really need to get super close to the object to create the effect.

2)Telephoto Lens is ok when using the back camera as you are able to focus.But in front cameras,the pictures are not as clear when zoomed.
