ZEISS optics for 3 new Fellowes lenses

Fellowes, a manufacturer of mobile photography accessories, has launched three new lenses with opticals from ZEISS, an international optics enterprise.

The ExoLense accessories are being showcased at the ongoing four-day International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, lenspire.zeiss.com reported.

Each of the three ExoLense lenses — a wide-angle, a telephoto, and a macro – features ZEISS optics and are made with black anodised aluminum with white labelling.

The lenses feature anti-reflective ZEISS coating that helps to minimise reflections and improve light transmission.

Mounting the lenses on a smartphone will require a special device-specific ExoLens bracket that holds the phone on one side and the lens on the other.

The machined aluminum bracket has a screw thread for the lens, a standard tripod mount, and a cold shoe for accessories.

The formal launch of the lenses and shipping would start in the second quarter of 2016.

While support for additional devices may come later, the current line of lenses are compatible with iPhone 6, 6-Plus, 6S, and 6S-Plus.
