Zoomtastic: A zoom lens for your iPhone

This product looks amazing! This is a Telephoto Zoom Lens that is for the iPhone 3 and (soon) 4. It is essentially a pairing of a case/lens combo, which the makers say will give your iPhone “… uber zoom-tastic telephoto powers (8x the powers to be exact).”

What this product contains is a matte black iPhone case which you then twist the lens onto. The lens has a manual focus ring, which you twist, same as other lenses, to sharpen your shot and then snap away.

If you then don’t need the lens, you can just leave the case on it and remove the lens. By keeping the case on it, you are ready when you need it. The lens also comes with a collapsible table tripod so you will get those perfect shots when you zoom or when there’s a low light condition. I think it helps because it probably makes your phone a bit heavier!

Currently the iPhone 3 version is available to buy, and the iPHone 4 version is said to ship as of February 28th. You can have a look at the details at the Photojojo site. Costs are listed as $35.00, with free shipping for orders over $50.

Each telephoto lens comes with a phone case, a mini-tripod and a cleaning cloth.

I haven’t tried this but think it looks like an interesting idea — I would love to hear if any of you have bought this and how well it works.
