IPhone Zoom Lens: Get Ready for Your Close-Up

by Paul Strauss

If you happen to own an iPhone, you know that the built-in digital camera is pretty limited due to its fixed lens. Now you can add a zoom lens which will let you get up close and personal with your photographic subject.

This add-on 6x optical zoom lens by Conice might look a little weird protruding from the back of your iPhone, but it will give you much greater flexibility for your photos. I’ve seen similar add-on lenses for cell phones before, and while they’re not as good as a built-in zoom lens, they’re better than nothing if you’ve got a steady hand. Since the iPhone doesn’t have any sort of image stabilization or a tripod mount, you might have some trouble keeping zoom photos in focus.

The lens attaches to a protective plastic case that snaps snugly around your iPhone, so it can easily be removed when you’re not using it. Keep in mind that the lens and case weigh in at 4.69 ounces, which nearly doubles the 4.8 ounce weight of a stock iPhone. If you don’t mind adding a little extra bulk to your phone, you can pick one up from DealExtreme for just under $15.

  1. It’s a wonder how mobile phone can be developed into this way. I will definitely get this gadget if I got a iPhone. Would appreciate if there’s sample of the photos taken. By the way, any clue of having flash developed as well?

    Urmm.. appreciate a lot of time and effort has gone in to this, but SLRS are for photography, cameraphone is for opportunity… overdesign no?!
