With a 150-degree increase in width, the Super Wide doubles the field of view of the iPhone's built-in lense. The Wide Angle offers edge-to-edge sharpness. For detailed close-ups of stamps, coins, jewelry and flowers, there's the new Macro. The 2X Tele lens was designed from the ground up in anticipation of the higher resolution iPhone 5's camera.
