    I've been trying to learn a bit more about the optics involved in mid- to pro-level cameras, and I've been finding that getting out the tools and doing some hacking serves as a great mechanism for instruction. Just recently the idea of optical couplers - that is, a system to transmit light from one optical device to another to make an image - has gotten my attention.

    Mainly just to see if it was possible (and to teach myself about optical couplers), I thought I'd try my hand at building an adapter so I could attach SLR lenses to my iPhone. The result is pretty cheesy, but nevertheless - I present to you, the Phone-O-Scope:

    That has to be one of the dumbest things I've ever seen... even more-so than the magnetic stick-on lenses for camera phones.

    Why did I buy a DSLR? I could have just bought a lens for my iPhone! Who knew?

    Will this be considered an "App"? :lol:

    Throwing the image through more glass will only decrease image quality

    This was a bad idea and whoever thought of it should feel bad.

    I'm just wondering how slow you can hand hold it. I'm sure the duct tape works as well or better than VR. :lmao:
