The iPhone’s camera is pretty good for what it is. In fact, some even think it’s more epic than the RED Epic. But what if there was a way to cram your DSLR’s lenses into your iPhone’s camera to make the ultimate mobile photography workhorse? It looks as if the folks at Arizona-based Phocus are thinking the same thing. They’ve created a case for the iPhone 4/4S that allows you to mount most Nikon and Canon lenses to your iPhone. And while the case isn’t small, it’ll easily fit into a messenger bag.
The Phocus case comes with two lenses: a macro lens and a wide-angle lens. These lenses are made specifically for the case and will not work with any other camera. The Phocus case also features a couple tripod mounts and has cutouts for the power and volume buttons. This is nice as the volume buttons can work as a shutter button in iOS 5 and 6.
If you want to pick up a Phocus mount for yourself, head over to the Phocus store and prepare to drop $99 on a Phocus case. The Phocus Store also sells other accessories such as a portrait lens and adapters.Follow @macgasm
