iPhone 4 Super Wide angle lens with Belt Clip - Sample Video

Services for Real Estate Pros with HDhat.com

Nearly bombproof case allows you to shoot 14.75mm photos and SUPER WIDE 14mm video using your iPhone 4.

To Shoot Photos: Simply remove the frontmost lens and use only the smaller lens. This will allow you to shoot 14.75mm photos.

To Shoot Video: Attach the super wide angle lens by screwing it on to the smaller lens. We suggest you use an app like ProCamera or AlmostDSLR to then adjust and lock the exposure(brightness) and lock the focus. Both those apps have lots of documentation online and are super simple to use. In our opinion ProCamera gives the best results for color saturation and correctness as well as a large set of highly customizable features. Feel free to contact us if you have questions or want to film your real estate tours with this setup.
We can help you to get started! HDHat.com will be posting other tutorials on the site specifically on this amazing product.

NOTE: the adapter is permanently riveted to the case and will fully support the weight of the lens even if you carry on your belt daily! Mark Passerby....HDHat.com's founder in fact carries his on his belt everywhere he goes and can in just a flick be filming 14mm video anywhere!

The iPhone 4S
I haven't ordered an iPhone 4S yet...why? Because even though it shoots higher quality photos it also does it at the price of width. So here is how it really breaks down where real estate photo/video is concerned iPhone 4 vs iPhone 4S.

Remember when reading this the lower the mm the better for real estate photos and video...and really the target is anything between 14mm and 20mm.
Iphone 4 - The iPhone 4 without any add-on lens shoots 29.5mm photos and 40mm video i.e. most point and shoot cameras and phones 'crop' the video so you will notice the video is not as wide as the photos on your phone.

iPhone 4S - The iPhone 4S indeed has better camera quality specs but it also shoots photos at 35mm and I suspect it will crop the video back to 45mm or more......not so good considering an off the shelf Sony WX9(see our WX9 full kit that shoots at about 17mm) shoots photos at 25mm at 16.2 meg and not much bigger than an iPhone.  So while all the Point & Shoot camera manufacturers are going wider i.e. 24mm and 25mm ....Apple chose to go the opposite direction....which hey....that is great for filming close-ups of walls :) but not so great for capturing the entirety of a room....thumbs down Apple on this one. 

The video above was shot with an iPhone 4 and a big combo lens group that totally maximizes how wide the iPhone 4 can shoot photos or video. It also has a beltclip so yes I am that geek that carries this thing everywhere I go on my belt constantly shooting video :) I love it.

I also didn't mention above but the small lens is also a 2 piece lens which when unscrewed gives you a great macro lens for shooting really great close-ups!  Be aware though if you wear it you will be stopped ALOT by passersby wanting to know what that is....when you show them the difference it makes they will be stunned!

Great post; I think you're turning the iphone into the "swiss army knife" for real estate video. The pan looks so stable.
