iPhone Lens Dial adds wide angle, fisheye, and telephoto lenses for $250

iPhone 4 owners looking to expand the capabilities of their phones' cameras may have a solution in the iPhone Lens Dial, which offers a trio of lenses.

It's no secret that the iPhone is inching its way towards becoming a dedicated camera for many of its owners. But standing in the way of that is one obstacle: With only single lens the device isn't ideal for all shooting situations.

That's a problem solved by the iPhone Lens Dial, which adds a trio of alternate lenses to the iPhone's arsenal. Its wide angle, fisheye, and telephoto lenses are all included on a single rotating disc, allowing for easy access depending on the desired shot. Compatible with both the iPhone 4 and 4S, the iPhone Lens Dial weighs in at a fairly hefty ten ounces and features a pair of tripod mounts for use in both landscape and portrait shots.

At $250, the iPhone Lens Dial is more expensive than the on-contract iPhone itself. Likewise, that price tag also rivals quite a few dedicated cameras. Cost concerns aside, tools like the iPhone Lens Dial and the Holga Lens Filter may soon indispensable parts of the iPhone photographer's toolset.
