“ Manufacturer: USB Fever / Type: Accessories / Use: For iPhone „
The success off the iphone ahs brought with it a vast range of not only apps but also accessories from the weird to the wonderful to the darn right impressive. When viewing around a local mobile phone store I came across this odd little device and the fact that this was a telescope accessory for a mobile fun baffled me and the oddness of it made me make a swift impulse purchase.
Basically this devices attaches to the camera output of your Iphone and enhances the image by 6 times. It is compatible with the Iphone 3G and 3GS, costing around £25 on ebay or such like, it's a real gem of a product. The picture quality it actually feeds back is exceptional and crystal clear. The 6 x zoom you would think would have a greater impact on negatively affecting the picture quality but it doesn't. The picture quality remains as it does using the camera without the accessory.
The item comes with a case which you have to place around the iphone before use. It is a black casing that feels solid and doesn't impair use of the phone clipping easily and snugly around the phone. Its unlikely it will come apart and feels well made.
Once the casing has been attached you will notice a slot on the back for the attachment of the cameras where your normal iphone output is. The Telescope is about the length of your middle finger and as wide as say a two pound coin. Its long and heavy and sticks out a mile so its not really portable. Its only for use if you really want some zoomed photos although the ease at which it clicks in an out makes it easy to carry around separately and attach when needed.
The zoom itself is exceptional as I have said and the first few times you use this it certainly has the wow factor. And that's where it counts! Its a quality product that enhances the camera on the iphone to great effect and does a fantastic job of what it advertises!
Worth it for iphone camera enthusiasts.
