Photojojo has unveiled its new iPhone SLR Mount for the iPhone 4. The new mount consists of an aluminum case, an SLR lens adapter, and a UV filter; the case offers open access to all ports and controls, and also features two loopholes for attaching a camera strap. By connecting a traditional SLR lens, the Mount promises to offer users a wide variety of effects and features based on the type of lens used. Photojojo’s iPhone SLR Mount for the iPhone 4 is available now for either Canon or Nikon lenses and sells for $249.

I love stupid technology as much as the next guy.

I also love my SLR, and the lenses that I use with it.
But someone please explain this to me? Please?!

If you’ve got these lenses, wouldn’t you most likely have the camera body too? And if you have the camera and lens, wouldn’t you use them together, instead of an iPhone and lens combo?

I know they say ‘the best camera is the one you have with you’, but who’s walking around with an SLR lens, a lens adapter, and iPhone 4 and no camera body? It makes no sense. Surely you’re not saving all that much space, or weight? And the image quality can’t be fantastic. The gigantic lens is still going through a teeny-tiny lens on the phone after all.

That all being said, interesting idea.

What the hell? How in the world does this make sense? This is almost as stupid as screen doors on a submarine.

You can use the iPhone with one of your extra lenses. I have 3 lenses I use a lot, but only one camera body. $190-$250 is a bit high, though.

Actually this is an amazing product for professional news gathering…if you are on a breaking news scene you can shoot and transmit higher quality images and video quicker than shooting to an SD card and transmitting.  Agree with Max as well that it is a big improvement for livestreaming as well. The amount of ignorance and arrogance in the world never ceases to amaze me.

Interesting opportunity to leverage our investement in SLR lenses with our iPhones.  Now we can take better pictures and share them with iphone software like photogram

But you can’t take “better” pictures, since the image is still going through the same iPhone lens and the same iPhone sensor, just now with three layers of optics in front of it. The pictures will be darker by 2 f-stops, and they’re still gonna be iPhone pictures.

I thought this was dumb at $190. But now it’s $250? Please.
