iPhone Lens Kits & Camera Mounts

Keeping with the iPhone theme, I noticed on a friend’s Facebook page this morning a ridiculous looking iPhone lens modification (which unfortunately wouldn’t really work that well with a 35mm lens, due to the tiny size of the sensor in the iPhone, unless you wanted a super zoom lens that is)… although this looks weird too

Anyway it jogged my memory of the Owle Bubo I’d seen a few months ago, which in essence is a camera mount for the iPhone 3G / 3Gs (iPhone 4 adapter in the works). below are a couple of good reviews by Taz Goldstein from Handheld Hollywood, and another by Blunty 3000 (scroll to 4:30 of Blunty’s review to see how customisable/crazy the Owle can be!)

NB: as it has 4 standard tripod connections, you could even use it with a Hoodman WristShot or a FigRig by Mike Figgis, or the Steady Wonder (all of which can be used with DSLR’s or camcorders)… if the Owle interests you, then it might also be worth checking out the Tiffen Steadicam
