Use your Canon or Nikon SLR lenses on your iPhone with this mount

The idea of the mount is to “turn your iPhone into a DSLR using real SLR lenses.” The case is made of aluminum and has two holes for those who would like to attach a strap. Photojojo is also including a UV filter with their product.
The case/mount for the iPhone 4 will run you $249 while the one for the 3G/3GS will cost $190. You can pick one up for yourself at Photojojo’s website. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

do the slr lenses increase picture quality too? I thought it depended on the camera itself and the lenses were just for focusing and zoom...

in this case no, im no engineer but i figure since the sensor is behind glass and what not. I do alot of photography, however cheaper lenses can degrade quality with cheap glass and crappy f stops. Someone more techie could prob back this up.

And using a adapter with ground glass to project a 35mm image on, then shoot it with a iPhone lens will get you: terrible chromatic aberration, the texture of the ground glass in all pictures because it is static, double flipped image headache and probably some vingetting and other optical nonsense. For $250 you can get a cheapass DSLR body that wil out perform the iPhone camera 1000X

Agrred. This will never be a DSLR. It will still only be 5MP and will shoot terribly slow. I have a Canon 7D with a beautiful body and the ef28-135mm lens. why would I ever want this POS? oh I know,because I'm not an idiot apple fanboy.

Intewesting... I sure like to hear testimony from someone using it. For $250 is lens included? The biggest issue with phone cameras is their extremely poor performance in low light environments such as night in bars, concerts, etc. The other problem related to video cameras is also the poor performance of the microphone.

Looks great, but I'd like to hear from someone who's used it and I'd wait for the new iPhone with an 8MP lens. Although the iPhone takes nice pics you'd need an 8MP camera at the very least to truly take advantage of this tech.
