Enhancing the iPhone’s photo taking abilities
by strapping SLR lenses onto the device seems to have become a cottage industry. The blog Hypebeast spotted this Frankencamera, which combines a mini-tripod with a Carl Zeiss DSLR lens. There’s even a blog dedicated to using an SLR lens on the iPhone 4
, and one online vendor sells a telescope for iPhone 3G and 3GS handsets
. Unfortunately, slapping a super lens onto your iPhone may not do much for your device. You might get different angles and be able to zoom in more, but in the absence of improved optics designed to work with extended lenses, the picture quality of your super-accessorized iPhone camera probably won’t get much of a bump.
