I love the concept of having additional lenses for your iPhone. But the Olloclip has a huge downside -- it's range of lenses. A standard iPhone lens is roughly equivalent to a 35mm lens on a DSLR. That means it's almost wide angle (28mm or less).

But the lenses that Olloclip has are wide angle, fisheye -- ie. very wide angle, and macro. So if you want to do anything from 50mm out to telephoto, you're out of luck. A more useful approach would be to also add a classic 50mm equivalent, and then one at 80mm or 100mm so you can do closeups of people.

Anything longer than that and you run up against the limitations of a camera phone in terms of shutter speed and camera shake. But hey, let's get a bit more range on the tele side of things.

I wholeheartedly agree!! Seriously, doesn't anybody read anymore? Video is a nice option, but if I wanted to be spoken AT, I'd be watching TV.
