6 times zoom – 8x Zoom Telescope Lens with Crystal Back Case for iPhone 4 Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- The 6X zoom works just fine
- You can focus even better
- The design is fair, and the case is OK and has nice color
Cons:
- Because of the U-shaped mount you can not keep it comfortably in you pocket
- The mechanism is flawed, so the lens are not very well fixed
- The lens are falling off
- There is vignette on all four corners
- You need to operate it in daylight because of the small diameter of the aperture (18mm)
- Of course the flash is inoperable when using thee lens
- The focus is a bit loose
Other:
On this site you can find better products, with better screw-on mechanisms that keeps the lens tight. I recommend those other products, definitively.
Bottomline:
It's almost unusable because of the U-shaped mount on the case that makes it bulky and uncomfortable for using the case all the time.
And the lens are difficult to operate because you have to find the angle for least vignette. But if you don't care about vignette, you'll do just fine.
