Conice 6x18 Zoom? Attachment for iPhone – Conice 6x18 Zoom Attachment for iPhone Reviews

posted by Darzl on 07/31/2011 Certified Owner

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.
Other:
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.
