Make a retrofitable magnetic attachment for the hiLO len to fit the iPhone 5, one to switch out the sticky pad.
The hiLO's sticky pad attachment is slow, cumbersome, and finicky to put on. It's also frustrating to use if frequently going back and forth between portrait and landscape mode as i do. A magnetic attachment w the magnet on the lens is fast to put on and align to the phones camera and easily adjustable between portrait and landscape modes. Having now used both, i much prefer the fast ease and adjustability of the magnetic attachment, even though, the small lens of the hiLO is magnificent by comparison. I went back to the small magnetic lens because is it so much faster and easier to use. I want hiLO to succeed so am offering the above suggestion.
Hi and thanks for getting involved! We agree the tacky pad is not for everyone. We would like to offer several ways for attaching the HiLO Lens. Because the aluminum case of the iPhone does not attract a magnet there would need to be a semi-permanent metal surface attached to the iPhone. This is OK for some people but not for everyone. We are working on a case at the moment but a magnetic solution is on the list now too. Thanks, Mark.
Bayonett attachment like moondoglab.com anamorphic lenses have it, to the schneiderlenses iphone and android cases.
