Olloclip has a new accessory for iPhone photography enthusiasts: the Action Lens.

Made for both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Action Lens offers both ultra-wide and telephoto shooting options.. The lenses snap on for use with either the rear or front-facing cameras on your iPhone.

The ultra-wide lens is best for landscapes or other panorama shots (the picture above was shot with this lens). You can also use it on the front-facing camera for the ultimate selfie or Facetime chat, which may be especially handy if you’re in a group.

Olloclip’s telephoto lens instantly provides 2x optical zoom for shots where a narrow depth of field is best. Telephoto is great for portrait shots, and the optical zoom helps avoid noise you might otherwise see when zooming and cropping during editing.

The Olloclip Action Lens is currently available to pre-order (linky here) and will retail for $99.99. No shipping date is mentioned on the site.
