Digital Camera World Verdict

If you want to start shooting cinematic footage but don't want to splash out on a whole new camera setup, the ShiftCam Videography ProLens Kit is a smart alternative. Both the 1.33x anamorphic lens and the 60mm telephoto can be attached to your phone's main camera using either a universal mounting system or an in-case mounting system specific to your phone. The footage does look better than using your phone's standard lens, but you will need editing software to de-squeeze the anamorphic video – though it's not a hard process.

Once upon a time, add-on phone lenses weren't all that they were cracked up to be – but the ShiftCam Videography ProLens Kit is actually pretty good. If you're a content creator that shoots mostly with your phone, these lenses are well worth investing in. It's no secret that cameras and lenses to shoot video can be expensive, so this relatively budget-friendly alternative will appeal to someone who doesn't have a lot of cash to splash. 

Phones are so good these days that lots of on-the-go content creators are choosing to shoot with some of the best camera phones instead of the Best cameras for filmmaking or the best cameras for video. Not only does it make your shooting setup much smaller, but nearly everyone has their phone on them at all times – making it super convenient.
