  • It's cheap cheerful and does what it says

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    The zoom is pretty incredible. I can go from a whole room photo to a single face.

    It does include the plastic case which could cost more money on it's own than the case+lens.

    It has a dual function, you can flip the lens around and look through it and it makes a pretty decent pocket microscope!

    Or use it as a "telescope" with your iPhone or, just by looking through the iPiece (eye piece ;-) )

    Cons:

    As noted, the lens can fall out of the clip easily. Also, the clip design means you can get light shining into the iphone lens form the side causing lens flares. I find a finger on top holds the lens in place and blocks the light. A bit of black tape would do the same job.

    You do need a lot of light to get a good photo and a good sturdy phone mount. However, adding a tripod to the mix would probably just make it look even more ridiculous.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    It's cheap cheerful and does what it says. If you want quality photos, go spend a few hundred on a proper digital camera. If you want a toy for your iPhone that looks quite ridiculous, get one of these.
