The Olloclip is a three-in-one lens for the iPhone 4 and 4S, including macro, fish-eye and wide-angle lenses and is small enough to fit in your pocket. It is available to order now for £58 from Amazon.
Equipment Database. The Olloclip has been tested using an iPhone 4.
MacroThe images produced are far better than any macro attempts with the iPhone 4 alone. The focal distance is quite limited, so it's close-up or nothing when using this lens, if you go further away the pictures are blurry.
Rose Macro | 1/17 sec | f/2.8 | 3.9 mm | ISO 1000

FisheyeThe fisheye is great fun, brilliant for taking portrait pictures of your friends. There is vignetting in each corner, but it doesn't matter, it's all part of the fun and can be cropped out if neccessary.
Wide-angleThe wide-angle lens proved to be slightly disappointed, with the vignetting appearing in two corners, but again this can be cropped out. Barrel distortion is clearly evident as well.
