    Which iPhone Wide Converter for Viewfinder App?

    I recently purchased the Mark II Viewfinder app and need a wide angle lens adapter for my iPhone. The widest lens I shoot on 4x5 is 90mm. What's the cheapest lens that will work on an iPhone 5s with the app? I don't care about image quality; I just want to use it for composition.

    I think he is using it as viewing device, just hi tech replacement of a wire sports finder...

    I bought an OLIO ClIP lens for $15 one eBay.

    Very interesting lens and easily used with LF gear as finder.

    Thanks for the recommendation! I think the Olloclip on 'bay is the way to go. It's much cheaper than retail.

    Obviously you are not familiar with the app.

    It's great for composing a scene and deciding what lens to use with out pulling all your LF gear out of the pack.

    I use a moment lens with mine. It's high quality and not cheep.
