The iPhone Telephoto Lens


Thu, Feb 17th, 2011 20:00 by capnasty NEWS

I'm not kidding. PhotoJoJo is selling a detachable lens giving your iPhone 8x telephoto zoom powers. It even comes with a collapsible table tripod for when you're shooting in low-light. Here is how it works:

Each lens comes with a sleek, matte black iPhone case that you twist the lens onto. To compose your shot just twist the grip on the lens' manual focus ring to make it sharp. Then snap!

I'm torn between the advantage of being able to carry a telephoto lens in my shirt's front pocket versus how much of a total dork I'd look with something like this in my hand.
