As a Realtor, it is extremely important to take good pictures on your listing. I was so excited to get this lens. It definitely gives you the wide angle shot! With high quality editing software your in business!
I purchased the macro and wide angle lenses plus the polarizing filter. Right out of the box you can feel the quality of the build and see the quality of the optics. Photos are superb and the screw mount is easy and secure. I don’t trust those bayonet style mounts from the competitor. Plan to add the telephoto and fisheye soon!
Today was the first time I used my new Sandmarc Wide angle lens. I am a real estate agent and also a professional real estate photographer. I usually shoot with my go to Sigma 8-16mm on a crop Nikon body which converts to 12-24mm on the crop sensor body I am using. I find that the Sandmarc 16mm is a better sweet spot with less barrel distortion. I now do my editing using Adobe PS Express App on my 12.6 iPad. The photos came out wonderful and editing these was so much easier on PS Express than using Lightroom and blending all the bracketed images together, then adjusting exposer, barrel distortion etc. My only gripe is the case. I always keep iPhone XS Max in a leather flip case to store some cards and also to protect the front glass when it’s in my front pocket. The leather flap acts same as a lens cover buts it’s protecting the iPhone screen. The case that comes with the lens is a very tight fitting case and fitted like a glove shell. After my photo shoot, I struggled hard to remove the iPhone from the Samdmarc case. The fit is way too tight and ultra hard to remove. Someone with weaker hands or fingers will never get the case off. The pro case looks better but very similar style. I’m sure that one will come off easier with the soft lining it has on the inside. I would design a case that makes both case style people happy. The minimalist pro case with screw or slider locks to add on a flip top to protect the lens and also to add in some credit cards or business cards. A hybrid case like this would satisfy both minimalist and wallet style case people who also use their iPhone to shoot photos and videos with a quick removal of he flap and onto a tripod. The lens works great and the photos are sharp. I wish they came with a free screw on or cap on clear lens filter or a polarizing filter. That would protect the front glass and also prevent from getting scratched. Right now I will have to attach and reattach to different cases when I use it, The struggle to take it off is the bad part. I still give the lens 5 STARS as the lens is great but the case is not my everyday style. I also purchased the Anamorphic lens and can’t wait to see how that goes. I’m still waiting for my gimbal and counterweight to come in. Sandmarc and Moment are my top 2 lens brand choices for my iPhone XS Max
Very happy with my Wide Lens I purchased. Excellent quality product. No blurs on the sides of the pictures taken and they are super sharp. Can recommend to anyone who wants to step up their game. Absolutely worth it. Also, excellent customer service!!!
Wonderful construction and quality!
