      Have received my Olloclip today (Perth, Australia)
      Very well done, it's amazingly well built, looks good and works perfectly. Although I had to ditch my aluminium case to use it :-)

      Nice work. Look forward to playing with it a bit more.

      Chris, can you please email me with your confirmed address to We will send it out Monday. I think our emails asking you to confirm your address must have gone to your junk filter.

      Still waiting for my Olloclip as well, have they all been shipped out yet?

    4. Darryl Law on

      Olloclip received. Thanks!

      The macro is a fixed magnification so there is not way to adjust that. On the camera shake I would recommend an iPhone tripod mount like the glif or the steadicam smoothee tripod mount for $24 and use that.

      Heyhey Olloclippers....
      I've been testing out this your neat little thingamajick.
      Is there any way I can reduce the magnification of the macro lens?
      At 10x it does make it difficult to take close-ups of flowers, for example - flat surfaces are ok, but anything that is more three-dimensional is hard.
      Additionally 10x means that camera shake does become a major factor.

      It's awesome after playing around with the olloclip. The macro is amazingly great which i'm able to capture the dot per inch of the printing on a magazine.,

      Received my 'clip today.
      All I can say is awe-frigging-some!!! I don't care about color fringing etc - the macro alone (almost micro!!) is Very Worth The Admission Ticket!!
      Thank you for this great AppleGadget!

      Got my Olloclip two days ago and had this saturday time to extensively play with it. I just wanted to let you know that it is absolutely amazing!!! I am so thrilled to have these three lenses always with me. You rock!!!
      Cheers, Georg

      Thanks for the wonderful comments everyone, it makes it ll of the hard work worth it!

      On the screen protectors, if they are thin and somewhat rigid they should work great with the olloclip. If they feel like a gummy bear they will not.

      Have a look at the FAQ for more info on that and other tips to get the most out of your olloclip.

    13. Bruce So on

      I just got my Olloclip and it is awesome. Great photos already. Thank you for making a great product.

    14. joachim grueninger on

      Hi all, just received my "Share the olloclip" pack !! sweet ! They look nice and well built, the GF settled for the red so I'm left with the "professional matt black" version :-)
      When I pushed it on my iphone the first time I immediately removed the screen protector on the back. After playing a bit I realized that if I push it on like this
      it works even with screenprotector over front and back side of the phone without problems.
      Maybe it helps, cheers Jo

    15. Teerakit Fukiatisuth on

      Hi just got my olloclip two day ago really love it thank you so much by the i'm wondering that it has to be nake iphone right?? because i can't use olloclip with screen protector on my iphone or can you give me an advise that with screen protector will fit for your olloclip Thx..alot by the way i'm from Thailand....

    16. Thianchai Tangsujarittham on

      Thanks Patrick
      I recommend my friends to buy and and they were just order it.;-)

    17. Patrick O'Neill Creator on

      The olloclip is much softer than the Gorilla Glass that the iPhone uses so you do not need to worry about scratching. The fisheye is working in video mode but you are not seeing the vignetting because the iPhone crops the sensor in video mode and shoots using the center of the lens, if you look at the video with and without the olloclip you will notice that the image is much wider. Have a look at the FAQ for more tips.

    18. Thianchai Tangsujarittham on

      Just got mine today. So far I do love it.
      One thing I wonder that when I use the fish eye len and took photo with iphone's camera app it okay but if i switch mode to video it's just won't work. Don't know what happen.

    19. Erin Khoo on

      Great work guys; got mine yesturday. I am a little scared when I insert/remove it. Ever scratch the iPhone 4 lens? Love the fisheye and macro. Boom.

    20. Patrick O'Neill Creator on

      Glad to here you are loving the olloclip. Yes, we have some ideas for the iPhone 5 and just have to wait for the release. Yes, the microfiber cloth is for holding and cleaning the lens.

    21. Anders Kähkönen on

      I received mine today and it's awesome! I hope you guys make one for the iPhone 5 when it hits the market as i'm already now addicted to the olloclip =)

      Is it ok to clean the lens with a microcloth btw?

      Bruce : Lucky you. Still waiting for my email.

    31. Bruce So on

      Just got my shipping e-mail. I can't wait!!! This is my 3rd backed project but will be the first project to deliver me the goods.

    32. Veli-Matti Hinkula on

      A quick note for Gmail users, check your spam folder! At least for me gmail interpreted those latest mails asking to verify shipping info as spam.

    33. Patrick O'Neill Creator on

      Great! Keep them coming and remember to tag your pictures and videos with #olloclip so people can find them.

      Hi Patrick,
      Looking forward to receiving mine.
      Just wondering if there is a revised ETA for shipping? And are you still planning on emailing us upon shipment?

    41. Anonymous on

      anxiously waiting for my olloclip

    42. Patrick O'Neill Creator on

      We have an olloclip Flickr group that we will make an open group next week.

    43. Anonymous on

      Looking forward to playing with it... You should create a section on your site which would allow customers to post pics taken with the Olloclip

    44. Patrick O'Neill Creator on

      That is an excellent question, I am not sure but I am guessing we can ship all of them by the end of next week.

      We are talking to retail chains now and I think you will see the olloclip at a store near you in the next few months.

    45. Anonymous on

      @Patrick O'Neill: Now that the item is shipping, how quickly will you guys be able to fulfil the orders of the 1300 backers?
      Have any retail chains picked up the product?

      Hmm, I'd prefer much less, if not zero, branding... Oh well, that can be fixed. At least they're shipping soon!

    47. Dawid Kntr on

      yesss....finally! i hope it was worth waiting :)

    48. Wolf Wolfinger on

      @Anonymus: Yey, Yoni is right. And as I was one of the first backers, you can imagine that there weren't too many pledges listed in front of I hope for first in - first out ;-)
