Schneider Optics iPro Lens for the iPhone 5Schneider Optics has introduced an iPro Lens for the iPhone 5. In addition, the system now offers a larger family of lenses, including a new Macro and Super Wide.

The iPro Lens System is purpose-built to enable professional quality photographic and video imagery with the iPhone by adding the benefits of interchangeable Macro, Wide Angle, Super Wide, Fisheye, and Telephoto lenses to capture more in every shot. The iPro Lens System’s professional optics are simple to use, easy to handle, and smartly self-storing in an integral black case that doubles as a handle. A bayonet mount securely fastens the lenses to the custom iPhone case.

Due to the iPhone 5 design, the Schneider team engineered an entirely new, improved outer case. With a slide-on design, the two-piece system offers easy installation and removal. Plus, users will appreciate the soft touch feel on the rugged case.

Because the iPhone 5 camera provides increased resolution, a better lens, and improved sensor, Schneider engineered a new family of lenses: the Series 2. This includes a new Fisheye, offering 180 degrees of view with a larger image circle and sharper images. With a 150° increase in width, the Super Wide doubles the field of view of the iPhone’s built-in lens. The handy Wide Angle offers true edge-to-edge sharpness. For detailed close-ups of stamps, coins, jewelry, and flowers, there’s the new Macro. The 2X Tele lens was designed from the ground up in anticipation of the higher resolution iPhone 5’s camera -- so it’s a perfect match.

Those who already own the original iPro lens series for the iPhone 4 and 4S will now be able to use their existing lenses on the iPhone 5 by upgrading to the new iPro 5 Series 1 case. The two-section case features a bayonet mount to accept both the original iPro optics and the new Series 2 lenses as well.
