For $5, this thing exceeded my expectations right away. I bought it for my Kodak Playsport Zx5, for which it works perfectly. I know this lens has a lot of negative reviews, almost all of which complain of the adhesive not sticking. But here's the truth: The adhesive works just fine IF you clean the surface of the camera with some rubbing alcohol first. Simply polishing the surface with a cloth does not remove the oils and dirt from your fingers that accumulate on the lens; you have to use alcohol on a cotton swab/ball, then wipe clean with a cloth and the metal ring will stick just fine.

As for the lens itself, it expands the field of view by 50% with minimal distortion. Yes, there is a slight fisheye effect, but not nearly as much as a real fisheye lens. Images look a little softer around the edges whether using the wide angle or macro mode (more pronounced in macro), but it's not a deal breaker for me. Macro is still pretty cool and useful. Also, there is no vignetting (at least with the Kodak Zx5).

I couldn't be happier with this lens. Just make sure to clean your camera first and you will not regret this purchase.

I liked it until somehow I lost the lense. If there were a way to have the lense itself teathered to the string that would be great. I plan to get another one. Just be aware that the magnet teather is not strong enough to hold onto the lense.

It should be noted that you need to attach a (sticker backing) metal ring to your device for these to attach because the back of the lens is a magnet. I have a Samsung Droid Charge. For me it blocked the flash (not completely but obstructed) because the flash is directly under my phone lens but I was OK with this. Also, I heard that the sitcker backing does not work well with iPhone glass surface(?) The front of the lens comes with a plastic cover which is very nice. the back of the lens is protected by a little metal disc with a string lanyard that clings to the magnet backing so you can attach your lens to a keychain or your phone. DO NOT trust that! It will just fall off. In fact, I keep my lenses in a little drawstring pouch (I'm looking for a lipstick pouch or change purse or something like that - that zips closed). Anyway, they fall off even while being carried in there! So, for me, the little metal disc covers are useless. The fisheye is awesome for fun pics. The same goes for the macro - which by the way comes as one lens (the wide angle one). You unscrew them to use them separately. There is a little bit of blur around the edges for fisheye and macro but I just crop that off for some pics and some I just leave it. The magnet backing is strong enough for the lens to stay on while jogging but that is a bit risky. It's not super strong. I put it on and shoot and take them off. I don't leave them on and just expect them to stay on while my phone is on a pants clip holder or in a bag (or purse) or whatever. For the price these lenses are fantastic and add a lot of fun to casual everyday photos!

Works great. Widens the angle just enough, but doesn't fish-eye everything.
I'm using it on an android phone as a dash-cam.

The magnet is surprisingly strong. I was worried it would always be falling off but that never happens.

This is a great product and works well, exactly as described! The only problem is the metal ring you put on your camera doesn't stick well enough. The magnet is strong enough to pull it right back off the camera! So watch out! Just put the ring on and leave it for a day compressed onto it. Also when removing the lense, slide it to the side instead of pulling it off. I just used more glue to get it to stick better.

Other than that, great product and so glad I finally have wide angle on my not-so wide angle Zi8 video camera!

What, you were thinking this thing was going to turn you into Sherlock Holmes? I got it for my dad, a tech nut, and it was fun to play with, though I doubt he'll use it much outside of taking pictures of bugs for my nieces.

The glue on the magnet is very poor quality, I use super glue and everything works good.

Dont buy it if you dont want to use super glue in your camera.
