Review: Telescope Lens for 3G iPhone
Review: Telescope Lens for 3G iPhoneI was so excited to get the new telescope lens for the 3G iPhone, but at the same time, apprehensive that it would be a gimmick. I was thrilled to find out the telescope lens actually worked! The case used to mount the lens also snaps On and Off quite easily.
The Telescope lens is what you call a fixed lens. It doesn’t have the telescopic ability like higher-end SLR cameras. Rather you would either shoot a picture with the standard iPhone or snap on this zoom and jump up 10X. Which is fine, as most of the time you are far way and just need to jump closer [via the lens] or you simple walk closer to the subject to get the zoomed picture you need.
The other nice thing about the telescoping lens for 3G iPhone, is different cases for the original iPhone and the new 3G. The 3G iPhone is what I have and it fits perfectly. Also, if you are looking to get your geek on, nothing says “I’ve got the latest and greatest” like a screw on lens for a iPhone.Here are some more sample shoots of the zoom abilities. Not bad for a snap-on iPhone zoom!
The Telescope lens for 3G iPhone runs $19 USD and just a couple more bucks for shipping. Well worth it if you are looking to lighten the load while being mobile, yet need a zoom camera for whatever you’re doing.
