ExoLens recently announced that they are in collaboration with ZEISS to developed high quality mobile photography lenses. At launch, ExoLens with optics by ZEISS will be available for iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus, with the goal of adding more devices in the future.
“We are thrilled to announce our new relationship with ZEISS, who has been setting standards in optics for almost 170 years,” says John E. Fellowes, Chief Executive Officer of Fellowes. “Following the launch of our new ExoLens mobile phone photography line last year, our partnership with ZEISS will enable unique and innovative consumer lens solutions. ExoLens with optics by ZEISS will redefine quality in the mobile photography space, providing professional-grade results for users.”
There are three new lenses – wide-angle, telephoto and macro – scheduled to launch late Q2 2016. The wide-angle and telephoto lenses offer excellent image performance with outstanding edge-to-edge contrast while the macro lens features a zoom function – unique for accessory lenses of this type – for flexible image composition between three and twelve centimeters. The new lenses can be used on the iPhone with the customized ExoLens’ mounting brackets.
“The impact of an image is decisively influenced by the lens and its technical properties,” says Dr. Winfried Scherle, Executive Vice President of Carl Zeiss AG and Head of the ZEISS Consumer Optics business group. “The collaboration with ExoLens gives us the opportunity to provide ambitious mobile phone photographers with high-quality tools to support their creativity.”
“The lenses of ExoLens with optics by ZEISS are the best currently available on the market,” Scherle adds. “We have achieved the best possible technical balance between a small size, low weight and high image quality.”
