Selfie Phone Clip - Panoramic Goodness!

Disclosure - this post reviews an item that I received free of charge.  Nevertheless, the views expressed are mine.


Today's post looks at a Selfie Phone Clip that I was kindly sent by Paladone, a wholesale gift supplier with offices in the UK, USA, and Hong Kong.  Now, I'm a huge fan of any kind of gadget so I was very keen to try this out!


The selfie phone clip is designed to be clipped over your phone's normal lens, giving you the ability to take panoramic shots than otherwise capable.  Boxed it comes with a lens cap and storage bag.



The clip is very straightforward to use, and the lens cap is very tight, it's certainly not going to come off by accident.

Below you can see a couple of photos taken as selfies in our attic:

And the below photos are with my main phone camera, from the skylight:

Now, obviously my photographic skills aren't the best, and these are just quick shots taken as examples, but even so the clip definitely does allow for much wider shots to be taken.  I would say that it may be even better with certain phones - a friend of mine tried it with his phone and got some really impressive results with it, whilst the ones above were taken with my Huawei P8.  I think that the position of the lens on your phone makes a difference - mine is in the corner of my phone which isn't an ideal position for the clip, the lens on my friend's phone is further away from the edge of the phone so the clip could grip a little better.

So although it's marketed as a "Selfie Phone Clip" and if you want to take a nice big group selfie it'll certainly help with that, I'd also say that it's also got value for when you want to take panoramic shots, for example when out walking, and the small size of it makes it extremely portable.

You can find out more about the Selfie Phone Clip at the Paladone website - I'm aware that the Paladone website currently only sells them in multiples of 12, so if you're just after one you might want to check out their Amazon listing.
