I just received my Jelly Lens in the mail today and I was very excited until I put it on my iPhone 4. The bummer came when I saw that there is a green ring all the way around the photo. I emailed them and asked if anyone has found a solution to this. Otherwise I’ll just color it in with a sharpie later tonight and just have a slight black vignette in all my photos. But other than the green ring, I love it!
Below is a side by side photo that Dan (@dbyler) took in the cafe when we were hanging out looking at this thing. It absolutely looks great!
A good workaround I have found has been running it through an image editor or a toy-camera app. My favorite is Cross Process by Nick Campbell and it seems to crop out most of the green-ness. But it still lingers a little.
His other app ShakeItPhoto as well as Instagram takes out almost all of the green ring, but you are left with a square photo. Which can be fine, but I love the 4x6 look.
All in all, I’m happy it cost $9 ($6+$3 shipping) and will use this a lot!
