Rollei has announced an add-on telephoto conversion lens for the Apple iPhone 4. With an angle of view of 16°, the manual-focus Rollei telephoto lens allows the iPhone camera to capture distant subjects in great detail. Focusing is by way of a traditional focus ring, and is helped by a distance scale that goes from 3m to infinity, with markings at 10m, 20m, 30m and 40m. Weighing in at only 45 grams, the Rollei 8x telephoto lens will be available in stores from the end of April for a recommended retail price of €34.95. The scope of delivery includes the lens itself, a miniature tripod with a mount for the Apple iPhone 4, a hard case for the phone and a cleaning cloth.

Modern mobile phones can now do everything, including take photos. And with the Rollei 8x telephoto lens as an accessory, even better than ever before.
Simply attach the Rollei 8x telephoto lens and discover entirely new photographic opportunities with the iPhone 4*. The lens (dimensions: 18mm, F = 1.1) gives the iPhone 4* 8x magnification and increases the telephoto range to an impressive degree: Distant subjects are now enlarged and clearly visible. Ideal for paparazzi, nature enthusiasts and anyone with an eye for detail.
The high-quality lens design avoids flaws that could show in the image. The focus adjustment is carried out using a traditional lens ring with a scale from three meters to infinity. The iPhone 4* is barely any heavier with the lens attached. It weighs just 45 grams.
Included in the package:
A hard case for the iPhone 4* is included in the package. But that’s not all. Thanks to a special bracket and a mini tripod for the table (included in the package) there is no more camera shake and every picture is a success.
