Well, the most famous thing about iPhone’s camera may well be the fact that it’s the most popular and used camera in Flickr communities, which you can see for yourself here. This might be a great indicator of how great an iPhone can be for photography purpose, but imagine an overhaul that transforms your hand gun into a shot gun! And it’s not even about simulated focusing and faux filters though iOS apps, it can now happen for real, tangibly through the iPhone SLR Mount accessory. So it’s not even about Instagram anymore.
The iPhone SLR Mount is a case-adapter combination that lets you build up your Nikon SLR or Canon EOS lenses on to your iPhone 4 device, giving you all the depth of field and focus you always wanted. Since you have your phone with you all along, just mounting the additional SLR lens will actually make you a pro photographer everywhere.
The mount tool also features two loopholes on each side of the case allowing you to tie on a camera strap, making it easier for you to hang it around your neck, the DSLR way.
The accessory offers two types of mount adapters, one for Nikon and Canon each. The great thing about the Nikon SLR Mount is its compatibility with ALL Nikon lenses since it’s an F-mount adapter. While on the other hand, the Canon SLR Mount is only compatible with EOS lenses, since it’s an EF-mount adapter.
If you use an old school film SLR lens that has an aperture ring on it, you can even adjust the aperture of my SLR lens while you’re using the mount.
The Lens Mount makes use of a focusing screen, similar to that of a DSLR. As a consequence, the lens can get dirty sometimes, since it is exposed each time you assemble the mount. For this reason, one needs to be sure to clean it using an air-duster or soft cloth each time they shoot.
Let’s have a close look at the mount accessory below:
Last, but not least, let’s have a look at a few pictures taken after this accessory is added along with an SLR lens to the iPhone.
