The Samsung Galaxy S4 can take some pretty decent pictures with its rear camera. But they can’t quite match the photo quality standards set by the Lumia 1020. So what do you do when you’ve got one of the best Android smartphones and just want to upgrade the rear camera? Well, the answer might lie in the Ztylus Revolver Lens Kit which gives your Galaxy S4 four extra lens to play around with.
Now add-on lens kits have become a common sight in the smartphone world, but the Ztylus does this in its own way. The first component of the lens kit is a camera-shaped case which attaches to your Galaxy S4 in place of the back cover. The cover has some tricks of its own. It has a stand so you can watch movies on your smartphone and it’s also been made in a way that makes holding your smartphone as a camera a lot easier. There’s also a tripod mount adapter should you want to attach one of those. The second component of the lens kit is of course the revolver-shaped lens system. While you can only see 3 lens on it, it actually has 4 lens.
First off, there’s a polarizer lens which takes the glare out of photos. That means bluer skies and greener grass, and it should also help by reducing unwanted reflections out of the photo. Second, there’s a 2-in-1 lens, and it consists of a wide-angle lens and a macro lens. The wide-angle lens allows you to cover a larger area with the camera than the normal lens, and is excellent for landscape photography.
The macro lens on the other hand, is said to have a 10x magnification capability so you can extremely close to your subject. Finally, there’s a fish-eye lens which has a ridiculous 180-degree field-of-view. That means an extremely wide area of capture and some pretty wild photos.
The Ztylus Lens Kit is a great add-on for the Galaxy S4. If you were thinking of jumping ship to the S5 just for the better camera, this lens kit might just help you save that upgrade cash. On top of that, you’re getting a lot of flexibility on how you shoot your photos. For $80, we think it’s a pretty good deal.
