Playing with a Jelly Lens Set

Jelly lens setI recently ordered this Jelly Lens set (for super cheap), it was an impulse purchase, but a really fun one! These tiny plastic lenses are made for point and shoot cameras and cell phones. They have a little jelly ring that sticks to your phone, over the lens. They didn't always stay attached to my phone, so I held them on there most of the time. Here are a few of my favorite lenses from this set… 

1 heart frameHeart Frame: This lens is my favorite! It doesn't exactly look like a heart, but I like the red frame a whole lot!

2 soft lensSoft Lens: This was another favorite. I love the extreme blur. 

3 starburstStarburst: I like this lens too. The blur creates a fun starburst effect. I'll probably use this one a lot. 

4 vignetteVignette: This blur is totally different. It creates the look of motion in the blurred areas.

5 wide angle5 wide angleWide Angle: I'll be honest, this wide angle is WEIRD! It's very difficult to choose a point of focus, but still kinda fun… 

6 antiqueAntique: This lens is super yellow and has a fun retro feel. Very 1970s. I kinda like it…. I don't know… kinda. 

7 image mirage6 Image Mirage: This lens replicates your point of focus six times (this image was of one dandylion) It's fun and different, no?

7 image mirage (This can also be a little creepy… beware!) 

8 polorizedPolorized: A polorizing filter can help skies appear darker and reduce glare. I always avoid taking photos of the sky with my phone because they are usually too blown out (appearing white) so this is pretty useful! I can't wait to use this filter to take some photos of my store windows because they always have crazy glare. 

I had fun playing around with these! If you wanna pick up a lens, you can find them individually on Amazon or in a big pack on eBay. I bought the big pack for around $12. Some of them are better than others, the ones I shared above are my personal favorites. I'm a sucker for camera phone toys! xo. elsie

  • Thats awesome – My husband bought a wide angle lens for his iphone on ebay from some shop in Asia. It has a magnet ring that you glue to the case (he bought a cheap case to use separately for this) It’s crazy how cool all those little phone camera accessories are. He has made some pretty sweet videos with it..i wish I could find the link to one of em. Oh well..bottom line is that lenses are really fun!

  • Ooh I really dig the image mirage.
    I think these might be worth a try.

    xO, Vicky

  • This is so awesome! I’m considering buying, but do you know if they’re only for certain phones? I have a Droid 2, and most of the ones I find online say that they’re for HTC or iPhone. Just curious!

  • Haha, it’s true… that shoe one is weird! These lenses are a cute idea though!

  • oh that’s so fun! i love camera toys too! i may have to invest in this…
