SIRUI USA, a company that makes all kinds of camera accessories from tripods to filters to camera bags, have announced that they are releasing a unique line of mobile accessories that they hope will help “broaden the creativity of smartphones” for both videographers and photographers. The line is said to include a bundle of new lenses along with accessories like lens mount adapters and a clip adapter.

The SIRUI 18mm Wide Angle Lens is designed to pack more of the surrounding environment into your image, allowing you to get more of the scene that you are shooting into your shot.

Next, SIRUI USA’s 60mm Portrait Lens is designed for more close-up shots like portraits. The lens is suppose to deliver sharp and clear shots with its high-quality optics.
Lastly, SIRUI’s Fisheye Lens expands your smartphone’s len to bring in the entire scene into the frame with a 170-degree angle of view. Fisheyes are pretty experimental lenses and aren’t commonly used, because they give a very distinct look. But, it definitely make shots look interesting.
In addition, SIRUI USA says that all the lenses included in the line have been designed with optical glass with multi-layer anti-reflection coating, which should allow for high levels of light transmission, more precise color rendition and reduced vignetting and distortion.
