You are very beautiful as shown in the video. I would have been lucky to get a wife like you.

omg finally a review without indian accent

Andy Hutchinson says:

Your video should be short and sweet. Music should not be distracting to hear and in my opinion it seemed to be an automatic leveler so with your low level vocal and the choppy sounding BG music it was very distracting to me. If the video sells the product quickly then the listener will be satisfied and can stop the video anywhere without being bored. Having a link to the manufacturer’s website would be a + for viewers along with estimated pricing.

WOW! This is an excellent video demonstrating the capabilities of the telephoto lens! I appreciate your attention to detail. I’ve been looking for a review on smartphone telephoto lens so I can do static video shots. Thank you for this excellent video.

Alexey Filippenko says:

Amazing video, you deserve much more response than 150 views! It really uncovers the subject. Basically, no escape from chromatic aberration without spending tons of money.
The only thing that varies within a budget cost range of a telephoto lens is amount of distortion and especailly focus (super cheap lenses manage to lose focus all around the center of the image). Basically there’s always be a huge difference in quality of a standard smartphone photo and one taken with affordable mobile telephoto lens. Basically this is more for fun than photography (except for situations when the shiny photo quality current smartphones provide isn’t of high importance).
Also this lens mount should work a bit better on a smartphone with a flat back, like google pixel or my xiaomi mi5s for example (with the same sensor as the pixel).

Ramesh Giri says:

Does it give bokeh effect in the background while doing photoshoots??

Derrek Wilson says:
