One of the biggest gripes about the iPhone 4 (besides its antenna not working, of course) was the quality of its digital camera. Despite its shortcomings, iPhone photographer â€“ or iPhonography â€“ is a rapidly growing pastime.
For those iPhonographers who are starting to get a little serious about their craft, gadget manufacturer Photojojo has come up with the perfect accessory â€“ an adaptor for your SLR lenses.
Thatâ€™s right; according to Engadget, the iPhone SLR Mount lets you attach a pricey Canon or Nikon lens to your iPhone tiny, 5-megapixel sensor, allowing photographers to manually focus and create images with a shallow depth of field.
There are, however, a few qualifications. Because SLRâ€™s use a mirror, your image will be upside-down in the iPhoneâ€™s viewer. Also, newer digital lenses donâ€™t offer any method of changing the aperture, although old-school glass with an aperture ring will. And, the adapter will steal plenty of light, losing about one or two f-stops and obliging users to brighten shots in post.
But, if youâ€™re excited about using incredibly-good glass on a sub-par camera, the Photojojo iPhone SLR mount will set you back US$249 plus shipping. We canâ€™t say weâ€™re not curiousâ€¦
