Flying the iPhone 6 with Ztylus Lens on a Varavon Birdycam Gimbal

So after unboxing these Ztylus iPhone lens accessories, I wanted to take it out on the field for some test shooting. And for the sake of overkill, I mounted an iPhone 6 with Ztylus smartphone case and the 4-in-1 Revolver Lens onto the Varavon Birdycam 3-Axis Gimbal using a Custom Fancier 717 Adapter Base and the Dot Line SMARTBracket Smartphone Adapter. The combination of all these parts gave the iPhone 6 just enough weight to fly on the Birdycam.

Next we shot some stills using the 4-in-1 Revolver. First we used the fisheye lens which captures a hefty 180 degree field of view.

The wide angle lens is great for capturing that extra field of view without having to stand across the street.

The circular polarizer lens cuts glare and reflections from the sun to allow natural colors to show along with great saturation.

Ztylus iPhone 6 Case + Revolver Lens + Ring Light Unboxing

Back in October, I had the chance to preview the Ztylus smartphone case with 4-in-1 Revolver Lens as well as a prototype of their LED Ring Light. I finally received the final retails versions and I must say they look and feel way better than the prototypes at PhotoPlus.

The case provides full body aluminum protection and includes an integrated foldable aluminum kickstand to allow you to position your phone in a variety of positions for optimal viewing.

The kickstand can be removed to attach a revolving 4-1 lens accessory that includes a polarizer lens, wide angle lens, magnetic macro lens and an extreme fisheye lens. With the flip out design, it makes it easy to choose a lens and lock it into place for those spontaneous picture moments.

The LED Ring Light is my favorite accessory as it allows you to illuminate your subjects in extremely low light situations. Additionally, it can be detached to give even more options of lighting your subject to create some really advanced smartphone photography. With adjustable temperature controls, 1/4-20 thread mount and various diffusers, this is definitely a useful accessory for multiple shooting environments.
