Am I the only one who thinks it’s funny that when a new smartphone debuts, the only thing people ask about is the camera? Is it a decent phone? Nobody cares. Does the caller sound like they’re calling from Mars? If they do it’s not the phone—contact your carrier. The only things people seem to care about are how many megapixels and how many lenses it has.
Unlike earlier-generation smartphones, which typically had a single semi-wide-angle camera lens with some form of digital zoom, today’s smartphones offer multiple lens options that enable you to capture wider landscapes or perhaps shoot tighter to distant subjects with better clarity and at higher resolutions.
Depending on your smartphone, you may or may not be satisfied with the focal length choice(s) you currently have. If you are happy, that’s terrific. If you’re not happy with your lens choices, you do have options. B&H stocks a wide selection of accessory wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle, telephoto, fisheye, 3D, macro, and anamorphic lens attachments for iOS and Android smartphones.
