The guys from Three Mobile got in touch recently to ask me to test out the Holga Filter Lens for the iPhone 5. As I am a bit of an Instagram and Twitter fanatic I figured it would be a bit of fun, I take lots of pictures with my phone, as most of you know, so why not add a little effect to a few of them.
So this is what it looks like, most of you will have seen one or something similar. You can get it on Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com
It fits my phone nice and snuggly, and I was surprised it was so light. It is a little bulky at the top but wasn't too much of an issue in my pocket or handbag. I have actually left it on for the last 3 weeks without any problems
Even without using any of the effects the plain lens gives you a nice little vignette, which I really liked on my pictures.
So here are the effects you can produce:
2 lens splitter
3 lens splitter
4 lens splitter
Had some fun with the heart frame in work, it was a little hit and miss on how clear the heart showed up.
Blue spot lens, good for putting a focus on something
Yellow Spot Lens, wasn't really as obvious to see, the colour wasn't really bold enough
Green filter, does what it says
