I’m pretty fussy about photography, but on fun trips, I’m increasingly relying on my iPhone. As for video, which I’ve never been that bothered about, I’m taking loads these days.

This amusing, but not wholly pointless, gadget is a nod to the iPhone as a camera. Yes, it’s a telephoto lens and tripod for the iPhone, to give it up to eight-times magnification. At the time of writing, it’s only for the 3G and 3GS, but a version for the 4 is bound to be along soon.
