I honestly do not remember where I read about the Photojojo iPhone Telephoto Lens but remember thinking it must be a joke.
Chuckled and went to read about it anyway. After reading their humorous write-up and looking closely at the images provided. I realized I had no use for it at all. But of course I bought one anyway.
“But of course I bought one anyway.”
The iPhone 4 kit was on back order and took nearly three weeks to arrive. If you order the iPhone 4 kit today (March 6, 2011) it won’t ship until March 21st.
Mine arrived last night. First thoughts:
- Well packaged.
- Comes complete with;
- lens (front and rear caps)
- cleaning cloth
- back case
- small black cloth carrying bag
- instruction manual
- Surprisingly well build components. Not Nikon level craftsmanship but pretty well done.
My only real complaint is the back only case – I prefer a case with front and back coverage for my phone. A smaller disappointment is the minimum focus distance of 3 meters.
Today I took it out to play a bit. I mounted the iPhone onto the supplied stand and braced it upon a garden fence in my front yard. (yeah – I know.)

Pro D/SLR quality it ain’t: but it is functional. And would be very handy if you were a spy. Well, except for the 3 meter focal distance thing.
I will carry it and look for opportunities to use it.
