Smartphones have given us the ability to take quality pictures that look like they were taken with a nice DSLR camera. DSLRs have different lenses to assist in getting the perfect picture. Thanks to companies like Black Eye, your cell phone can have similar lenses to get those pictures as well. Back in December, we reviewed some of their lenses. This time, we will review the G4 Pro Kit.
We’ve reviewed other cell phone camera lenses in the past. The last one was a clip-on from Olloclip for the iPhone7. That lens was very specific for the phone, but I think Olloclip makes clip lenses for other phones as well. The clip that we are about to review is universal for most phones, and specially optimized for phones released in 2018. This includes the ability to work with dual lens devices.
Wide G4 Lens
I played around the the wide lens while at a Christmas lights parade. Here’s an example of what I got without and with the lens.
The Pro Fisheye G4 lens
It’s pretty basic to switch out lenses from the clip. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist, and that’s good. The Fisheye lens will give you 175° degree viewpoint to cover more of your landscape in a clear, crisp photo or video. Here’s a sample:
Pro Portrait Tele G4 Lens
This lens is ideal for portrait photography and getting 2.5 times closer to your subject from afar.
What Comes in the Black Eye Pro Kit G4?
You will get
- The three lenses
- Universal Clipper

All of this retails for $284.24. If you’re in need of something to enhance your phone’s photo capabilities, I would suggest you go take a look on the Black Eye site.
