OWLE Bubo on the iPhone 4

In February, we talked about the OWLE Bubo wide-angle camera lens for the iPhone. Once you clip the OWLE Bubo to your iPhone, the viewable area is immediately extended. It has a lens attached to it that allows you to record videos with a wide-angle lens, and is capable of recording macro, as well.

If you record video with your iPhone, you’re going to want the OWLE Bubo. And by the way… it works flawlessly with the new iPhone 4! The video is absolutely clear and stunning. I can’t wait to put my OWLE Bubo lens onto my new iPhone – as soon as the thing is delivered.

Hello? Fed-Ex? WHERE. ARE. YOU?

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Facevsion. All opinions are 100% mine.

You know it’s time to get a new webcam when people have to squint in order to see you.

Most likely, you’re relying on the webcam that came with your system – if you have a webcam at all. Judging from 90% of what I see on YouTube, many people have yet to upgrade to an experience worth viewing. You might have the fastest CPU on the block, but if your webcam is sub-par by 2001’s standards, then… well, what are you really bragging about?

The FaceVsion TouchCam N1 is one of the only HD USB webcams on the market today. And if “HD” doesn’t mean anything to you right now – think about what it means to the person who has to watch your video. You’d rather be pushing the high-quality envelope, right?

I’m guessing your current video hardware is limping along in the 4:3 aspect ratio – when you’d be hard pressed to find either monitors or televisions that didn’t support 16:9 natively. When it comes to video, “widescreen” is almost always better.

This is the only Skype-certified video camera capable of HD right now. It will allow you to broadcast to a friend or colleague in 720p (yes, that’s HD). Oh, and you don’t have to worry about a manual focus with the TouchCam N1 – thanks to its auto-focusing, wide angle lens. The camera will automatically adjust the picture for you… WITHOUT software.

They didn’t skimp in the audio department, either. With dual mics, you’ll be producing stereo-quality sound in whatever the application of your choosing.

Plus, the dual hinges help make it easy to place in a variety of positions – including comfortably over the back of a monitor or laptop screen.

Go ahead – watch the sample video I recorded with the FaceVsion TouchCam N1. Everything else is just standard.

Wide-Angle Camera Lens for the iPhone


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

Yes, I’m using my iPhone to record this video, instead of my regular video recorder. The reason for this is quite simple. I wanted to show off the OWLE Bubo that was sent to me for review. How cool is this thing?! You can use this to extend the recording capabilities of your iPhone!

You can see that once I clipped the OWLE Bubo to my iPhone, I immediately extended the amount of area that was viewable. I didn’t move my phone at all, honest! That was all done by the OWLE Bubo. It has a lens attached to it that allows you to record videos with a wide-angle lens! It’s also capable of recording macro, as well!

The Bubo comes standard with a hotshoe mount on top for LED lights, four tripod mounts and standard 37mm lens threading so that you can put your own lenses on it, in addition to the lens that the Bubo comes with. The included microphone doesn’t work very well, so I’ll continue using the one I already work with.

If you record video with your iPhone, you’re going to want the OWLE Bubo! Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming special promotion on this excellent product! We’re working on that right now, and I will update this post as soon as I have the information in the next day or two. The team at OWLE has been fantastic about feeding me updates as quickly as possible, and I can’t thank them enough for thinking of our community.
