Factron Quattro adds interchangeable lenses to iPhone 3G, 3GS


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?
