5.0 out of 5 stars HHI 8X iPhone 4 Lens kit
OK, 5 stars seems kinda crazy for this strange gizmo...but, it actually works and it was only $26.
1.It fits my iPhone 4 well.
2.It actually does magnify the image in the camera lens by quite a lot (I haven't actually checked the exact magnification number, but 8X seems about right.)
3.On the tripod, it produces a decently sharp picture, without dramatic...

2.0 out of 5 stars OK Lens but mounting and tripod are lacking
The lens seems to work ok, but the tripod is amazingly cheap and flimsy- more of a toy really. The mounting system consists of a half cover so this means I have to dismantle my existing cover to put this on. It's all a little funky and not very convenient. It also ends up not being that compact as the parts don't fit together well. A redesign from scratch of the...

This review is from: HHI Camera Kit with 8X Camera Zoom Lens with Mini Tripod and Special Case for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s (Package include a HandHelditems Sketch Stylus Pen) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
OK, 5 stars seems kinda crazy for this strange gizmo...but, it actually works and it was only $26.
1.It fits my iPhone 4 well.
2.It actually does magnify the image in the camera lens by quite a lot (I haven't actually checked the exact magnification number, but 8X seems about right.)
3.On the tripod, it produces a decently sharp picture, without dramatic distortion.
4.The tripod "works" in that it hold the iPhone steady, which is mandatory with this magnification.
5.It is really inexpensive.
6.It actually does focus.

Always remember that price. For that you should not expect a top quality product.
1.The tripod legs do not extend. In fact when I tried to pull the feet out like on my $20 Hakuba, the leg just detached completely.
2.The lens is NOT a zoom lens as the title says. It is only a telephoto lens.
3.The focusing is not very easy or necessarily accurate.
4.It has no instructions. (although its operation seems pretty much obvious.)
5.The so-called stylus that is thrown into the shipping package, is less than worthless.
6.It cannot take a portrait oriented image very well. The clamp and tripod pretty much limit it to landscape.

So I end up giving 5 stars because it is so cheap and actually does work. If it was $100, it would get 2 stars.

For a much more practical, and high quality tripod (no lens), I recommend the Joby Gorillamobile for iPhone 4. I find it very handy and easy to use.

I think of the lens a toy, a curiosity. If I want to take a real picture, I will get out my real camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM, January 16, 2012

Great addition to your I phone . The mount fits tight and holds the lens perfectly .. Takes good pics , which pleased my techy son. The only negative is that it was shipped in a bubble pack that was torn by the USPS . The free stylus pen was hanging out of the bag by its tether . Great product and works as advertized .

Somewhat slow delivery, but it is a nice innovation and very useful for HDR images. Assembly was fairly intuitive and simple.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is a FIXED 8x lens and not a real 8x, September 9, 2012

When I bought this item I was expecting to receive a lens that I could choose the focal lenght, but the only thing I could adjust on it was the focus. This is a FIXED 8x lens and not a variable lens. Take care. Very disappointed with this products

Couldn't really get it in focus, so I never use the lens. The adjustable camera holder/ tripod adaptor is great, tho and you can use it to attach to any tripod. Very useful. The little table top tripod is ok-ish if you are literally using it on a table-top; otherwise it's not very stable. If you can get it cheap, it's worth it just for the tripod adaptor, which you can then attach to a real tripod. Forget the lens and the case thingie.

Zooms in Great!! Although it's pretty hard to get a clear picture while just holding phone. Almost has to be on a tripod of some sort. Thoroughly enjoying it!!!

I get a lot of use out of this when I go to Clippers games. It really takes you into the action. I love how it zooms.
