Do this a pixel sent me this kit for free, but everything that you’re gon na hear on this video is my opinion and they didn’t paint me to say nothing or whatever immediately when you open this, you see a bunch of lenses, fortunately enough, they are all Labeled correctly let’s try them on the smartphone now for this video i’m going to test, sometimes the lenses on video or on photo, because some things it’s cooler on video other things, it’s cooler on photos. I don’t do all in video, because this uh oneplus phone, it crops a little bit when you record video first i’m gon na play with a very traditional lenses. That means macro, wide angle, etc. Then after we’re gon na play with the funny lenses, the ones that are really i’m curious to test out so to start, let’s start with the wide angle lens, and this is a 0.63 x multiplier. Now this lens has to be combined with a macro lens to work immediately. When i look at this, we can see that it has very, very bad quality on the corners there. There is some color fringing and it has a little bit of distortion. A lot of problems on this lens, if you want a better wide angle, well, you need to pay for it because high quality wide angles for smartphones, they exist and they are a little bit expensive. But hey it’s, a wide angle, lens let’s test out the macro.
Then, as it is a macro lens, it’s, a 15 x, i don’t know if it’s doing some zoom, yes it’s doing a little bit of zoom. Oh everything is shaking. I never was a big fan of microphotography but it’s fun. Actually, the quality it’s, not bad, not bad at all, Music let’s we’re gon na test out the fisheye i’m, not a fan of fisheye lenses. To be honest, but some people are so the fisheye says that it has 198 degrees of field of view. There you go a lot of distortion, a lot of vignetting my finger, holding the smartphone it’s showing up it’s, not my thing, so yeah let’s keep going so next one two times zoom. It says telephoto here lens, but it’s, not a telephoto lens it’s just two times. Zoom, if this lens is 30 millimeters with two times will be 60 millimeters simple math. Now you may say that your smartphone has already a zoom lens, but you can put this lens on the top of the zoom lens to have even more zoom. If you want, if you have digital zoom, this lens probably will be better. We have to check out the quality of this bad boy, okay and oh too bad. That is not good. Let me do something. This is 2x digital zoom. That oneplus has. This is the normal view, and now this is where the lens on it has a huge vignetting, a bit of distortion.
If i do some digital zoom uh honestly gets better, because i am only using the center of this lens and it gets better. I honestly prefer it like that now, the center of the image it’s good, add a little bit of digital zoom and you have a better quality picture, because the center of this lens are way better than the edges, and the idea is to have some zoom. So zoom away this one, it is cpl. So this is a polarized lens and it’s a little bit tricky to uh screw it in, because it has a moving part and i’m going to explain why in a bit yeah, i cheat some clothes, polarized filter, it’s, a filter, it’s, not a lens okay. The polarize has a moving part, and this moving part is to remove reflections on certain points, and one of the main features of a polarized filter is that you can’t do that in post production it’s better. If i show you, then actually try to explain now, so there is a water tank here in front of me and the clouds is reflecting on on the surface of the water, and i can’t see the bottoms so with the filter rotate and get the right stuff. It’S not removing that much. I guess this polarized filter is to well record nature. You can see that the sky has a degree of blue that isn’t well there and i can rotate to change it.
Filters were made to remove reflections and this one it’s not removable reflections as well as it should be. For example, if you want to film someone or photograph someone that is inside of the car and the sky is reflecting on the glass with this filtered it’s. Not doing what it’s supposed to do, okay, so this one is my actual polarized filter that i use on my photograph it’s, a big one for big lenses, and, if i put here in front that it removes a little bit better, the reflections. That is what is supposed to do and it’s not doing it star filter lands. So if you look at closely to this filter, it’s, not a lenses, a filter, again it has a moving part and – and the filter itself has some squares to simulate the star effect. I don’t know if it will be visible here in nature. Probably yes, i like it. I like it. It has this moody feeling, although there isn’t really a bright light to make a star it gives the it gives this moody feeling that i really like. So this could be a little bit simulated in software on an app or something like that, but the real thing won’t look as cool and as amazing as this, so the next one it’s a kaleidoscope of three. I remember when i was a kid i play with a tube with mirrors inside, to make this cool, looking images and again it’s a moving kind of filter, and if i try to rotate it, oh yeah.
So if you thought that’s that, how do you pronounce this kaleidoscope? 3 was fun, but the 6. I think it’s better. Look at this. I think that will do a pretty damn fun. Selfie doesn’t, it cool is this. This. This thing is fun. This is thing it’s, very, very fun. Flow filter lands now it’s a filter, not a lens, but let’s. Try to ignore this, and what this does it’s a very strange looking thing, i think it’s try to simulate panning shots. Okay, if you don’t know what penny is, is you force your shutter speed to be a little bit slow and you follow an athlete or a biker or a car, or something like that, and it will give you um this motion on the picture, but honestly for A beginner kit for courteous photographers, i would rather have a different filter than this one and the next one that we’re gon na play with is the radial filter. So this filter provokes uh, interesting autofocus areas and of course it has a moving part. So you can point better where you want to make the autofocus area so it’s, not just out of focus it’s a stretch, autofocus that’s, very interesting, like that you are a dreamy dog aren’t. You well, then, now that i tried all the filters. I’M gon na express my opinion about these filters. Now these filters are great for people that just want to have fun. Okay, this is not focused on quality.
This is focused on having fun having fun with the photography and stuff like that: okay, but also it’s, a great gift to someone that is starting for a kid that wants to play with some lenses on his uh smartphone. Now. The bad thing is that it has some bad quality optics if you see a good optic uh, for example, the wide angle optic it’s, the double the price of this 10 filter kit. So if you divided 20 bucks for 10 filters, it’s two dollars per filter, so it’s very, very cheap filters, and you can see them, but they are fun to use. That is the main point of them. Another thing that i don’t really like that much is uh the filters that it has moving parts it’s very difficult to screw in and screw because we don’t have the room to hold this and screw and unscrew that’s that’s too bad. Another thing that i’m not a big fan of the polarized filter. If you want to do a polarized filter at least do it properly and polarize properly, it will remove a little bit of light that it’s a bit of a problem with smartphones. But at least some curious about photography can see in real time what the polarized filter is doing. That is important. Okay, my suggestion would be don’t. Do the polarized filter do an nd filter? Those filters are very, very fun to work so well. An nd filter is a neutral density filter.
It removes light to passing to the smartphone by removing light it forces to take a longer exposure, and you can do beautiful. Looking long exposures of waterfalls and stuff like that, that is fun. So another bad thing that i don’t really like is the book itself uh. It has four holes of that five for the for the grip itself, but i would prefer a box with separated compartments. There is a bee. There go make some honey. This thing it’s a lot of fun, it’s supposed to be a lot of fun. One thing that i really like is the grip. This grip is awesome. It has some rubber that will grip and protect your screen and your glass on the front of your land. So no worries with that and it’s big and you can use it in different ways. For example, if you want to put it as so so it won’t affect the proximity sensor. I can face unlock this. You get what you pay for it’s fun. It opens the curiosity for photography that is great and experiments well done there. We go so drop a like if you learned something comment down below.
