Optical Zoom Arrives on the Apple iPhone

Although the camera on the iPhone boasts a paltry two megapixels, the image quality is surprisingly good. Unfortunately, if you wanted to take a picture of anything more than a few feet away from you, there’s no chance of getting a reasonable level of detail. What is an Apple fanboy to do?

Thanks to the people at Conice, iPhone owners can now get in close on the action without actually being close, because here is an optical zoom lens designed specifically for the Jesus phone. Because there is nowhere on the iPhone where this barrel can screw in, the optical zoom lens attaches to a transparent protective case that wraps around the rest of the iPhone.

Yes, it takes away from the sleekness of the iPhone and it weighs nearly as much (4.69 ounces vs. the 4.8-ounce iPhone), but now you get to enjoy 6x optical zoom. Nab one at DealExtreme for $15.
