Do you have more money than sense? Are you a hopeless tragic when it comes to gadgets? Were you maybe dropped on your head as a child? Please step this way, we’ve got just the thing for you – the iPhone SLR mount.
As the name implies, this device clips onto your iPhone and allows you to bolt on real life lenses. Giant industrial lenses from Canon or Nikon that turn your formerly small and compact iPhone into a huge ugly mess that will probably snap your wrists if you try to hold it up for more than 20 seconds. Brilliant! And all yours for just $250 (for the iPhone 4 version) or $150 (for the 3GS).
If the price and bulkiness isn’t enough to dissuade you from the purchase, you can take comfort in the fact the five megapixel camera on the iPhone 4 will all but destroy any benefits gained from a $3 thousand lens. Also, small children will point and laugh at you and say things like, “There goes iPhone SLR person. S/he smells like farts and wants to marry a tri-pod.” Or, you know, something to that effect.
If you’re still interested (LOL) you can purchase one of these from Photojojo. Alternatively, you can spend about $15 on various iPhone Apps that mimic all the above and won’t see you break your wrists.
