EF Lens Adaptor for iPhone 3 & 4!

EF Lens Adaptor for iPhone 3 & 4!

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.

First Canon Mirrorless Related Patent?

First Canon Mirrorless Related Patent?

The First Canon Mirrorless Related Patent?
This appears to be a lens adaptor. EF to something else?

Egami compares it to the Sony NEX to alpha mount adaptor.

Publication number: Patent 2011-53437 (P2011-53437A)
Release date: March 17, 2011 (2011.3.17)
Title of invention: Lens adapter apparatus and system

Google Translated Link (egami)

CR’s Take
I don’t read japanese, so I’m relying on the job the translator does to the site. It looks like a lens mount adaptor. If/when Canon enters the mirrorless market, I am pretty confident they will have an EF adaptor for such a system.

This is the first patent I’ve seen that has even a remote chance of being about a mirrorless camera from Canon.
