Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use a screen protector or case with the clamp-on lenses?
We design our clamp-on lenses to mount precisely to the iPhone itself. Given the variety of screen protectors and cases available, our clamp-on lenses should not be used with either a case or a screen protector. (Lenses designed for the iPro Lens System and for 37 mm thread mounts, however, require a case with the appropriate lens mount as summarized in the product description.)
What about iPhone 7 and iPhone 7+?
The 37mm threaded verion of our current lens is compatible with iPhone 7 and the wide angle camera in the iPhone 7+. We are also working on dedicated designs for iPhone 7 and 7+, although we do not yet have committed launch dates. If you are not already on our email list, please sign up for our announcements at the top of this page to be sure you hear the news as soon as we have a launch date.
What about other iPhones (4/4S, 5C)?
Our clamp-on lenses are designed for specific iPhone models, as noted in the product name and description. Our high image quality specifications require precision alignment to the camera in each handset. The iPro-compatible adapter can be used with an iPro case for iPhone 4/4S, although hardware and operating system limitations do not allow for in-app desqueeze. There is currently no clamp-on anamorphic lens option that is compatible with the iPhone 5C, however the 5C can be used with our 37 mm threaded lens Check our compatibility summary for details.
What about other devices?
Our 37 mm threaded adapter can be used with a range of third party case options that fit a wide range of mobile devices. To ensure optimum image quality, we have a compatibility summary of device/case options that have been tested with our lens to date. If you have questions about a specific combination, please contact us (link below).

What are the options to ship my order internationally?
We ship internationally from Rochester, NY, USA using U.S. Postal Service International Priority Mail (6-10 days + customs clearance, $35-49) and Priority Mail Express International (3-5 days + customs clearance, $40-65). We also offer FedEx International for expedited delivery. We no longer offer First Class International shipping as many customers have had problems with their shipments due to inadequate tracking or insurance.
