So I got a replica Olloclip awhile ago, and have been taking photos and stuf, but I never did a demo or sample with it because I think people might be more interested in the authentic one, I am more interested in the authentic one but I couldn't afford one, so yea.
And here's a video taken with my iPhone4S, with the replica Olloclip macro lens, I would say it's still pretty good, quality's still pretty clear, if you're deciding to get a replica one, and wondering how the quality fares... here's it.
So I came across this app which I like very much, it's call Duomatic.
This app helps you blend two image together in a selected ratio/percentage of which image is more prominent, and which image you want more transparent. Just go to the app store, search for DUOMATIC, you should be seeing this
download it, and here's how it goes.
You'll be at this screen, everything's black because you haven't select or taken any photos.
So you tap on the camera icon on either the top or the bottom one, I'll start with the top one.
You can also tap on the filmroll icon to select from your photo album/camera roll.
Snap your desired image.
Now tap on the other icon, same thing, either take a new photo, or you may choose to select from your photo album/camera roll.
I'll snap a new one.
Here's the outcome, the big image is the blending of the two selected image, there's this bar below it, so you can adjust the meter to see the effects, which image do you want more prominent or transparent.
By adjusting to the extreme left, you see just the bottom image.
By adjusting to the extreme right, you see just the top image.
I'll adjust to about half way to the right, this is what I want.
Now there's this circle button on the lower right hand corner of the screen, that's to develop the final result, and it'll be saved to your camera roll/photo album. Tap it when you're done.
The final result will be shown, and then you can tap done.
Go to your photo album/ camera roll to see the image full size.
This is the outcome.
Here are some of the ones I did.

Some of you might have heard of the Grid It by Cocoon Innovations, well, I heard of it, but haven't got around trying it or buy it. One time, I went out with my mum and sis, and came across another alternative brand, not pictured, but it was rather expensive, and we don't have a need for it yet, so we gave it a miss, and then later, my sis saw this on Groupon, pictured below, it's a cheaper alternative, but not sure of the brand, and we though since it's cheap, we shall get one and try it. So here are the pictures...
Now notice there isn't any of the grippy thing that was suppose to be on the elastic bands shown below,
needless to say, the one I got ain't grippy at all. Things like iPhone, iPod, things with weight will slip off. But there's still the cover with the velcro, so I guess regular flat stuff can still be kept within the straps. But don't rely on it with precious stuff. If you really want one, I highly recommend you get the original one. I remember about a year ago my friend got one from cocoon and it seems pretty good, it you're worry about the security of the grip, search for videos on youtube, search Grid It, and see the demos, it might help~
