  • Conice 6x18 Zoom? Attachment for iPhone

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Zoom is great.

    I took videos and stills at a stage play and it worked great.

    I took close-ups of eagles which turned out great.

    Works great for well-lit objects.

    I use it solo as a spotting scope.

    I use it in reverse for a microscope.

    Cons:

    - The case did not fit my 3gs.

    - I cracked the case and eventually snapped the lens off.

    - The lens holder separated cleanly from the original case.

    - I super-glued (gorilla super-glue) it on a new case.

    - Pictures are darker, but I expect that through any add-on lens.

    - It is not a zoom: zoom=adjustable focal length.

    - It is more of a monocular with focus, or a telescope.

    OtherThoughts:

    I ordered a clear case which fit my 3gs, super-glued the lens adapter to the new case. It has worked very good.

    I have to remember to treat it gentle.

    I use the lens without the 3gs first to get focus, then I mount it on the iPhone to take pictures or video.

    Bottomline:

    I am very satisfied and I get lots of comments on taking good distance pictures with my iPhone 3gs.

    If you can remount it on a good case, like I did, and can treat it gentle, and expect a slightly darker image; then get it. Good price.
