My first impression of the Revolver Lite Kit is that it is a user friendly system. The case feels very substantial with the option to attach a wrist strap or camera strap to the phone. I found that very helpful.
You can use the case without the lens but you do need this specific case to use the lens. The lens attaches quite simply to the case. The lens unit slides securely into the notched out area on the back of the case. It came with a macro, a super macro, a wide angle and a fisheye lens. The macro and super macro are next to each other. To use the wide angle and the fisheye you just flip the lenses while keeping them attached to the case. It worked seamlessly for me.
As a mostly macro photographer, I was curious to see how this lens system would work with the dual lens camera system of the iPhone 7 Plus. I found that I was able to get crisp, clear macro shots with the regular macro. The bokeh was impressive. The lens and the case are not bulky so you can get very close to your subject. I was able to get some amazing close-ups with my 2X camera on my iPhone.
I used the fisheye and the wide-angle lenses less than I used the macro lenses. The wide-angle is accessed by using the 2X mode on your iPhone 7 Plus. I was able to get some interesting shots with them both.
Overall I was very impressed with the quality of photos that I was able to achieve, with the Ztylus dual optics lens system. The whole system is relatively lightweight. I like that I can keep the lens attached to the case and put it in my pocket without the lens system sliding off.
Both the case and the lenses are well made and seem to be of high quality.
