This review is from: Carson HookUpz iPhone 4/4S/5/5S/SE, iPhone 6/6S, iPhone 6 Plus/6S Plus or Samsung Galaxy S4 Digiscoping Adapters with Close Focus 7x18mm Monocular (IC-518, IC-618, IC-618P, IC-418) (Sports)
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.
