phocus: iPhone DSLR photography adapter

‘phocus’ iphone DSLR photography adapter

arizona-based company phocus has designed a media and stabilization photography device for the iPhone 4 and 4S. the self-titled product ‘phocus’ is compatible with canon or nikon DSLR lenses, achieving the capture of high quality smartphone images. the original adapter kit comes with a wide angle and a macro lens.

acknowledging that photography is becoming more mobile,  the component was conceived to be small enough to fit into a pants pocket or small carrying bag.
