So you love taking photos with your iPhone, and Instagram filters just aren’t cutting it for you anymore? Check out this lens filter kit from Holga, built specifically for iPhone photographers.

The lens kit slips onto your iPhone like a case, and brings you photography special effects that no app can give you. It’s stylish too, coming in red, blue, white, black or silver.

Here’s a list of the nine filtering effects and features this $24.99 kit will bring to your iPhone camera.

  • Triple Image Lens: Produces 3 identical images similar to a Holga 3 way split image filter
  • Quadruple Image Lens: Produces 4 identical images similar to a Holga 4 way split image filter
  • 60mm Macro Lens: For taking photos at approximately 60mm from the lens
  • Empty Hole: For taking images with no effect
  • Red Filter with Clear Heart Shape Centre: Reduces absorption of blue & green lights with clear heart shape centre to stand out
  • Red Filter: Reduces absorption of blue and green light

Unfortunately, the Holga lens kit is only available for iPhone 4 and 4S users, but if you’re serious about your “iPhoneography”, you already have one.
