• Turn your iPhone into an SLR

    We knew iPhoneography was a burgeoning trend, heck, we've even joked about the prospect of being able to mount lenses on a mobile phone. Now, the crazy folks over at Photojojo have actually made this happen and yes, it's legitimate.

    For just US$190 for an iPhone 3GS or US$249 for an iPhone 4, you can mount any Nikon or Canon EOS lens on your smartphone. Even a 500mm telephoto lens.

    The catch? Focusing is all manual and you lose about 1 to 2 f-stops because of the extension tube used to bridge the gap between the phone case and the lens itself.

    We'll just be sitting over here in the corner quietly, sobbing.

      Now that is just sad.... I loathe extension tubes anyway because of the light loss but that is just plain dumb for several reasons. 1.The physical weight of a decent SLR lens means you will cradling it to make sure to much pressure isn't brought to bear on the connector which will be a strain after more than a few minutes. 2.Unless you are using a fixed focal length lens you have TWO focussing rings to handle in manual mode, so one hand for the phone one hand to balance the lens and focus ? two rings ? 3. The X factor, you would like a complete twat wandering around with an iPhone with a couple of kilos of telephoto lens hanging off it, just paint a big red L in the middle of your forehead and be done with it.

      You seem to all forget the mindset of an average Apple fan.

      For instance:

      Why not just get a laptop and be done with it?
