HI, hope this isnt a FAQ, but...

I would like to be able to shoot with my iPhone 5 using external lenses and colored filters at the same time. For example, a fish-eye lens with a green filter.

Is there an off-the-shelf way to do this? I see there are many lens kits, and there's a case with a rotatable piece that allows the selection of some lenses or filters, but never more than one at a time.

Is there a best way to do this? I'd just like to shoot with a fish-eye or macro or wide-angle through colored filters/gels... green, red, blue. That kind of thing

Thanks for any suggestions!

Shoot with the external lense kits and then post process the image

Hi hoben02,

Thanks for that idea. However, I'm shooting Vine videos and if I'm not mistaken, Vine does not allow any alteration of the video, i.e., it will delete the post. I'm not 100% sure of this but it's what I've read.

If however it's possible to get away with it, can you suggest a simple video editor app with filtering that will run on my iPhone5?

People are somehow doing it, though I suspect their phones are JB'd.

Thanks!
