This isn’t the first telephoto lens we’ve seen for the iPhone, but it’s probably the most practical seeing as it only costs $35.  It boasts an 8x optical zoom, which is a significant jump over the iPhone 4′s crappy digital zoom and includes a mini tripod.  Digital zoom?  Who uses that crap anyway. One caveat, though.  It requires a case for mounting, which is included in the $35, but an annoyance nonetheless.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
