I love this lens!

By

from Boston MA  -  Photo Enthusiast

It's easy to set up and use. The WiFi is a great feature. I'm using this mostly for concert/Band photos and so far it's performed very well. It does great mp-4 of concerts with no blur and the audio isn't bad. The one thing I wish it did was control the flash on my iphone. Other than that I love it.

Nice specialty camera

By

from San Diego, CA  -  Pro Photographer

Not sure if this one will make it as an enhanced cell phone camera. Hut offers great potential for taking remote shots with the camera on the end of a monopod and held away from the photographer. Image quality is good and the lens seems to be pretty sharp. Software does not offer as many controls as a professional shooter would want.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  will this item work with an iphone 5?
JOHN J  Yes it will work with the iPhone 5.
Shopper  will it fit iPhone 6 plus?
WALTER A  I am not sure. I have only used it on a 4s iphone.
Shopper  Can you mount it to a mini/tripod or monopod? Should would help steady the image.
WILLIAM J  yes. you can mount it via it's threaded socket on the bottom. I use it on a mini gorilla pod and also on my tripod. It also has a flat spot on the bottom so you can lay it on a table without it rolling. If you buy this, be sure to get the latest bios update for the camera. It has many improvements, including the ability to choose an ISO and use shutter priority. Wifi performance also seems much improved.
