The Telephoto Lens for Your Phone Camera That’s Under $25

Almost every time I travel, I carry my big Nikon camera with a zoom lens (300mm). It takes amazing photos but it’s heavy and it takes up a lot of space in my carry-on bag.

Recently, I was scrolling through my Instagram and spotted an advertisement for a tiny telephoto lens that clips on to the lens of your phone. I looked it up on Amazon and the price was great but the reviews were just so-so. I did some more digging and came across —which is essentially the same thing and fits all kinds of phones including iPhone, Samsung Galaxy and HTC. It not only has great reviews but it costs only $22.99, as well. So I’m ordering one. It will be great to be able to get a clear photo with a lens that has 12x zoom and can fit in your pocket. I’m going to have to add it to my list of 20 products I never leave home without.
