A Wide Angle World View: Spivo Travel Lens
I have been around the world and back again, a few times… My travel bag is ever changing depending on where I am going and what I am planning to do when I get there. If you have seen any of my travel videos over the past couple of years, you have certainly noticed a common video tool, my Spivo Stick travels with me everywhere as my go to “go-pole” optoon. Now, the guys over at Spivo have come up with a new travel friend to accompany the Spivo Stick. The new Spivo travel Lens offers a new perspective to all of the smart phone camera travelers out there. While I do love my nice Sony camera, I don’t often like to travel with it too often because it is just too much to pack for small trips. The same goes for my GOPRO, I love it for its versatility, but I just don’t like having extra stuff in my pockets. With that said, the Spivo Travel Lens is the perfect fit for my iPhone. It gives the larger 120 degree field of view, similar to the versatile GoPro, which sheds an entirely new perspective on your phone shots. This allows you to capture more of what you actually see.
The Travel Lens is especially handy with the iPhone adaptive case, which comes with a threaded portion over the camera to mount the Spivo Travel Lens. Even if you don’t have an iPhone, the Spivo Travel Lens also comes with a clamping adapter to stick onto any camera phone, no matter the make.
I love to share my travels and adventures when I am on the move. This is undoubtedly one of the easiest camera accessories to bring along with me as a perfect compliment to my phone. The Spivo guys are offering a 15% off discount when you use promo code RGSAVEDYOU15 at checkout. I am certain that you will put the Travel Lens to good use on your next adventure!
