EF Lens Adaptor for iPhone 3 & 4!
« on: July 07, 2011, 08:28:52 PM »
EF Mount for your iPhone 3 or iPhone 4 I was waiting, and waiting, and Photojojo finally did it. A lens mount adaptor for your EF lenses and the iPhone 3 & 4!

I love cool and unique “why the heck not” products. I hope to get my hands on one and adapt an EF 800 f/5.6L IS to it and go birding. That’s right…. birding with an iPhone!

The iPhone 4 version is $249 USD and the iPhone 3 version is $190. A steal for most photography accessories.

If the product is real, the price is insane.

For that price you could buy a used 20D and take some excellent pictures.  It's not like the iPhone makes it more convenient.  Who just carries a lens with them?

*checks calendar*

ok, it's not the first day of april...


so just a guess, manual focus only and no power for the IS? good luck birding with an 800mm then. (or does the adapter have batteries to power the IS? if not, why not? *wanders off to patent office*).

i can't imagine the iphone camera will out-resolve a 3rd-hand 1000D, i tell you which i'd rather spend my money on too.

I can't wait to get one....

As soon as someone buys me an iphone.

Pricing is surprisingly good, have you seen what some Nikon to EF adaptors cost? That's just a piece of machined aluminum.

Also, how much have people paid for Gary Fong's tupperware?

This is a fun product, and we need fun products.

$9?

I'll definitely agree on the 'fun product' statement. i try to go as 'non-standard' as i can.
(there's nothing like extension tubes, ef-pentaconsix adapter, two 2x teleconverters, more tubes, reversal adapter, pinhole, with a circular polariser on the end, all stuck to a 7D...) when the 10 minute exposure is up i'll let you know how the picture turned out :P

i'm certainly glad things like this exist, but i wouldn't buy one (and god help me as soon as someone says they get good IQ out of it)

ha5, I like the admin statement 'gary fong's tupperware product'  ;D

This product it's not only fun I think, It makes you cool! Imagine 70-200 on an iPhone. Even a pro photographer near you will say : what the... :o
But I'm confused with the price of accessories nowadays. It's ridiculously expensive!

Usually I will google the DIY. Um, like DIY gary fong flash puffer for 4/3? :P. But still if you have this, your iphone will be cooler than a DSLR!  ::)

maybe it's just me, but that whole thing of 'being cool' because you have the latest and greatest shiny gadget that you don't actually need (or even worse, thinking you need it and that it enhances your life, doesn't waste your time, and you can't live without it) is precisely why i Don't have an iphone (or any other tablet).

My nokia 8310 is 9 years old. it still works. it makes calls, it sends and receives sms.

ie, it's a phone.

Yep.  You'd catch some looks with this, for sure.  I'm thinking of one of the PowerShot threads where the issue of shutter lag came up.  Enter the iPhone - tap Camera app, pour a cup of coffee, drink some, tap shutter button, have another sip, then click you have your picture.  Craig, I think your bird will have long since flown off!   :P
