Perfect for use with the iPhone. Does a great job. Might do better with some kind of built in auto focus, but does the job. You get what you pay for.

This is actually quite a nice setup as long as you don't expect the world from it. The field of view covers most (but not all) of the shorter screen dimension (width). The happy surprise for me was that the collar that fits around the iPhone (5S in my case) is actually in two pieces: a hard black plastic piece and a soft rubbery gray protector that for all the world seems the exact dimensions of the slim fit leather case from Apple. I'm able to slip the black plastic over the slim fit case when I want the telephoto effect for a shot. Lens quality is okay: these aren't superior optics you're buying.The piece that holds the monocular is 28mm interior.

It really works. Attached it to my 4S and was able to take photos from a distance right away. Thought the pix might blur since the picture on the screen seemed a little unsteady as I held the device in my hand but the pix came out very clear.

Be sure to read the instructions before attaching to your phone. The procedure for the 4/4S is much different than for the 5/5S.

You cannot use flash with this device so that is a negative. This will not replace a point and shoot camera. The assembly and focus are a little awkward but for occasional shots that were not possible on your phone due to distance, this set up is very cool.

Nice little add-on gadget. I haven't used it extensively, yet; however, I've tried it a time or two it was a little difficult to hold my phone steady enough to get a clear picture if I was zoomed very much. I don't think this is unusual when using most any telephoto lens ... just the nature of the beast. I guess that's why a lot of photographs use unipods when they are using their telephoto lens to take pictures. I have an iPhone 4S and the product is easily adaptable to it. I saw another review commenting that you couldn't use your flash with this product, which is true because the case covers the flash ...but a flash really isn't something that is useful if you are taking a picture of something that is some distance away. Flashes on most cameras or phones are only useful if the subject is fairly close. If you aren't zooming and want to take a picture with the your flash, then yes you would have to remove the hookupz case to do so .... no big deal to me though because it is easy to remove. I can see where the flash would be helpful if you are zoomed in on something that is actually close to the camera lens, but I can live with this issue since I'll probably use this thing mostly in daylight hours and outside to take pictures of objects or people that are actually far away, so I won't need a flash. For the price, I think it is a good deal.

First off... for the iPhone 5/5S, this works exactly as specified. You put the rubber case on your phone, you slip it into the hard plastic adapter, and you simply attach the monocular. They also include instructions and some additional "pieces" if you want to use it for an iPhone 4/4S, but honestly... it's kinda hokey... It involves essentially taping some spacers onto the hard plastic adapter so that the iPhone 4/4S fits correctly...

When you use the monocular, the image will show up inside a circle. So if you want a full screen shot, you'll need to zoom in on the phone to get it to be full screen. The image quality doesn't seem to degrade significantly when you do so.

There are three issues, I find... the first two are more related to monoculars/zooming in general rather than specifically with this product, while the third is a combination of the product and monoculars in general.

1. You need extremely steady hands when you take a picture using something like this. Any slight movement or tremor will make the picture shake or become blurry. Though again, this is really a problem with any camera once you zoom... but given that the zoom on the monocular is 7x, it can be pretty difficult to get a steady shot... and this is related to the next issue.

2. The zooming capabilities are mainly useful in outdoors, bright light conditions. Anytime you use something like a monocular, the act of zooming will reduce the amount of light going through the monocular (you can search the internet for all the physics behind this). The end result is that it exacerbates the typical issue with smartphone cameras in indoor/low light conditions... blurry images. It's possible that this might not be as bad on an iPhone 5S...

For what if paid your not getting anything better. It was a little fuzzy at high zoom but I think it could be the I phone not the optics of this monocular. When you look just into the monocular the view is clear and by it's self handy and easy enough to carry on hunts.

This is actually easier on my iPhone 4s as I don't need to use the special back that's supplied for the 5s. The little support bracket simply slides securely on my naked 4s and aligns the monocular with the camera hole perfectly. Now, this monocular is something special in its own right. Because it can focus down to 10 inches, it actually becomes a field microscope when taking close ups. The detail is brilliant, and the camera focus helps pull in an accurate overall focus even if you're slightly off with focusing the monocular. So, if you have an old 4s or 5s laying around, slap this thing on it and get out there snapping shots!
