Another day, another iPhone camera lens case and adapter. This one is called the Phocus and manages to distinguish itself both by its angular, military-look styling, and by the fact that you can (with a further adapter) stick your SLR lenses on the front.
You iPhone 4/S slides into the oversized case and transforms into a compact camera. Like other cases, this one comes with accessory wide-angle, macro and telephoto lenses, and has a brass tripod mount and an accessory shoe.
The kit comes in two ways: with two lenses for $100, and with three lenses for $135. The SLR adapters are $220 for Canon lenses and $245 for Nikon. That’s pricey, but may be worth it if you have a good collection of 35mm glass.
The only problem I see is that Apple may well be nearing the end of the iPhone 4/S design life. If the “tick tock” strategy of 3G/3GS, 4G/4GS continues, then this pricey but nice bit of kit might be obsolete by the fall.Related
