The iPhone SLR Lens Mount was awesome but it didn’t actually work. As it was constructed, the iPhone would shoot right through the glass of the SLR lens.
The guys at vid-atlantic, however, came up with a solution and have captured a rough video to showcase what an iPhone 4 with a real lens can do. It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty fun to see where this can go.
It has a gorgeous display, a front-facing camera for video chatting and a fickle antenna whose reception can be attenuated just by touching it. Oh, wait, skip that last part. Anyway, we all know just how awesome the iPhone 4 camera is–it takes great photos and HD video–and we’ve also seen plenty of mods and lenses attached to iPhone cameras in the past. But this one takes the cake.
Vid-Atlantic Media Productions was able to slap a Canon 50mm f1.8 lens onto the iPhone 4 using a 35mm adapter. The results are pretty awesome. Just imagine having this set-up and editing all your goods using the iMovie app – the possibilities are pretty much limitless. Even if you’re just stepping into this whole video thing, you can also try your hand at professional photography with just an iPhone.
Check out the video below to see the results of this iPhone-with-an-SLR-lens set-up.
