SLR Mount Lets You Attach Big Bad Lenses to your iPhone


Have you ever had wild fantasies of combining your DSLR and iPhone, to create a super camera that makes wannabe pros who use Hipstamatic quiver in fear and shame? If so, then you’ll love this. Photojojo is marketing adapters that allow you to attach your Canon or Nikon lenses to your iPhone, provided you’re using Nikon F-mount or Canon EF-mount lenses. If you use Canon EF-S or FD lenses you won’t be able to turn your iPhone into a camera beast.

With the adapter, you can strap on your giant Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8 lens and shoot upside photos on your smartphone. Yup, they’ll be upside down, because there’s no mirror in the adapter. Also, you won’t be able to adjust the aperture, and there’s no supersonic dust reduction system so your photos might turn out a little splotchy. Plus the adapter loses 1-2 f-stops so you’ll probably have to lighten your images afterwards. So what’s the point of this thing? Well, if you want to experiment with depth of field, boost your zoom range and get some really good close-ups all on your smartphone all the while looking like a tool, this one is for you. Plus it’ll be easy to email your photos right after you shoot them.

All the hipsters taking artistic photos of the sidewalk will run and cry at the sight of your fancy camera phone. The mount comes with a UV filter, and includes strap loopholes to allow you to hang your iPhone/SLR lens monster from your neck. The iPhone SLR Mount starts shipping in the middle of August and will cost $249. Though I think I’ll stick to my DSLR body, because, you know, it’s kind of always attached to my best lens and is superior to any smartphone camera. Just saying.
