Budget-friendly zoom lens boosts phone photography performance


A common complaint among smartphone users is the lack of powerful zoom in entry-level and mid-range devices.

The Adcom 8x Telephoto Zoom Lens provides decent zoom capabilities to phones priced under Rs. 35,000, allowing enthusiasts to get creative with subjects from a distance.

Setup is straightforward, taking just a couple of minutes. Images captured deliver clear details of faraway objects like birds and textures. While low-light performance is limited, excellent shots in bright environments showcase the lens' zoom potential.

But focusing manually through the ring remedies issues, increasing sharpness tremendously. are also possible but limited. Overall, the lens handles well in optimal conditions, providing macro-like results. An optional tripod mount would boost stability during use.

Recommended for photography enthusiasts on a budget seeking zoom flexibility rather than premium phone owners. For adept handling, the lens excels at distant wildlife, food and fabric shots beyond standard phone capabilities. Affordable yet capable zoom is now within reach.
