    iPhone DSLR Lens Accessory ProtoType

    From Vid-Atlantic Media Productions,  this iPhone lens mounts is crafted from a 1.1lb solid piece of anodized billet aluminum, and has dual handle grips, a tripod mount and native support for Canon SLR lenses. Really, it’s just an OWLE mount that has been modified to work with the iPhone 4 and an SLR lenses.


    Unfortunately, the mounting system doesn’t work, at least according to the designer. As explained, since the lens isn’t hitting the sensor, the iPhone camera is effectively just taking a picture of what the lens sees.

    “This set up has enabled the iPhone camera to have optical zoom. But overall the results of the configuration are completely useless. There are two major problems here:

    iPhone-DSLR-Lens-Accessory-ProtoType-2 1) The iPhone camera is unable to focus on the image projected by the Canon lens.
    2) The image projected from the lens is not large enough to take up the whole angle of view.
    Fundamentally this design is not going to work as is. I’m going to have to figure out a configuration of intermediate optics. Perhaps a combination of a reflecting screen and a macro lens.”

    Stay tuned for more renditions of this potentially cool product, that if designed accurately, could be a huge seller.  I’ll keep you posted.
