Factron has introduced its new Quattro case for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS (Translated Link), adding the ability for owners to use different lenses on the device’s built-in camera. Made from aluminum alloy, the Quattro is a two-piece case held together by four screws that stick out from the corners of the case. It offers open access to all ports and controls, a leather pad on the back, as well as a small mounting ring over the camera onto which a variety of lenses can be attached, including close-up, fisheye, and wide-angle glass. Factron’s Quattro case is available now for the iPhone 3G, available for pre-order for the iPhone 3GS, and sells for roughly $200; the lenses range in price from $15-$55 each. [via Engadget]

Admittedly, I’m an apple fanboy, but these accessories are getting totally ridiculous.  The whole point of the iPhone/iTouch is to have a SLEEK, COMPACT media device.

It kind of defeats the point if you need a bag to carry around lenses, game pad controllers, battery chargers, mini speakers, etc….if you want a video camera, buy a real video camera…otherwise, you just look like a ninny carrying all of these additional accessories around.  I mean, $200?  REALLY?
