updated 11:40 pm EST, Thu January 31, 2008

Telescope for iPhone

USBfever recently unveiled a crystal clear plastic case for the iPhone that has a removable telescope attachment for the camera. The telescopic lens is advertised as being distortion-free, and can zoom at a fixed six times the distance of the iPhone's built-in camera. Users attach the telescopic adaptor to the case by sliding it into place over three pegs, and can be worn around the neck when not in use, with the included neck strap. USBfever is selling the iPhone Telescope with Crystal Case for $20 on its website.

    ZOOM?

    This is not a zoom lens. This is a tele-extender for another fixed lens. I know that terminology seems to be falling by the wayside...

    Fixed != Zoom

    1) A zoom lens has a variable focal length 2) Focal length has little or nothing to do with focus distance 3) The word "telescopic" implies that the lens can extend and retract like a telescope, and hence might mean that the lens does indeed have a zoom capability.

    So when we read the sentence "The telescopic lens [...] can zoom at a fixed six times the distance of the iPhone's built-in camera", what is it supposed to mean?

    ....that's convenient as well as attractive :o). Can't wait for the closeout sale when it's discontinued.

    fixed telescopic zoom?

    The device is neither zoom nor telescopic. I think the term you're looking for is "telephoto".

    ?

    I think the term I'm looking for is "meh".

    This product can only enhance the iPhone camera's severe crappiness.
