The Smartphone to Telephoto Camera Converter - Hammacher Schlemmer


Hammacher Schlemmer

This is the lens-shaped digital camera that converts a smartphone into a sophisticated telephoto camera. Secured easily with adjustable clamps around any iPhone or Android-powered device, the device’s integrated photo sensor syncs wirelessly with a phone for shooting professional-quality stills and videos without lugging around a separate camera. The motorized telephoto lens has a 10X optical zoom for capturing close-ups from a distance, while its 18 MP resolution—a leap in quality from the iPhone’s standard 8 MP camera—captures fine details without blur using optical image stabilization and subject-tracking auto-focus. The lens has a 25-250 mm focal length and an f/3.3-5.9 aperture, with a sensor that detects current lighting conditions to ensure sharp images, even in dim conditions. The converter also has a built-in stereo microphone and records 1080/30fps HD video. Files are saved to the smartphone for immediate editing and sharing on-screen using a free app; the converter also supports a microSD card (not included) for backup storage. The lithium-ion battery takes approximately 200 pictures and recharges via the included mini USB cable. Comes with wrist strap. 3" L x 2 1/2" W x 2 1/2" D. (9 oz.)
