Put a DSLR Lens on Your iPhone
The iPhone camera is pretty robust, but it doesn’t have all the capabilities of a digital SLR – the ability to change lenses among them. But Photojojo seems to have an answer for that. Unlike the fisheye lens app from Pixeet, Photojojo has built an adapter that works with Nikon and Canon lenses.
The adapter itself makes the phone into a near-facsimile of an SLR. It won’t engage the autofocus on the lens so that has to be done manually, and it is only compatible with the newer types of lenses -- the Canon EOS series (known as the EF models) and Nikons. So if you have some older Canon FD lenses around it won’t work with them.
Last, be ready for the pictures to be upside-down, since there is no mirror inside either a lens or an iPhone. But for $249 it’s not a bad deal for creating a pseudo-SLR with a camera that you’re far more likely to have on you.
