Alcatel Flash 2 Limited Edition Lens Conversion Set
We got hold of a Limited Edition Lens Collection for the Alcatel Flash 2 which will be released this April. The Lens Set adds macro and fisheye capabilities to the Alcatel Flash 2 originally released back in September 2015.
If you’re one of the owners of the Flash 2, the lens set comes in a premium packaging and a fancy carrying case for the two lenses.
While most other 3rd-party extension lenses for other smartphones come in a clip-on mechanism, the lens for the Flash 2 has a replacement back cover with threads to screw in the additional lenses. This means you’ll have to remove the original back cover and put in the new dedicated back cover before you can uses them.
The new back cover is made of soft, premium leather with stiches around the edges. The leather cover is a bit thicker and the protrusion on the lens module is about a millimeter off the surface.
The smaller of the two lenses is a macro lens with a 2.8X magnification while the bigger one is the fisheye lens. Both conversion lenses have a solid, metal build with a rubber cap on both ends. Both lenses have thick glass optics.
Here are some sample photos from the macro lens:
Here are samples from the fisheye lens:
For reference, here is a sample photo using the native camera wihtout any of the conversion lenses:
Of the two, the macro lens seemed to take really good photos and adds more detail with the maginifcation factor. The fisheye lens can be fun at times but we rarely find any occasion to use it.
The Limited Edition Lens Collection for the Flash 2 will retail for Php1,490 and will be distributed by Lazada this April.
