What's the point of quoting 18.2mp? If your phone only has an 8mp sensor then it's not going to add an extra 10...oO

The Sony standalone camera gets better reviews and it is almost the same price. You can link it to your phone as well. Also a bit fiddly though to use it that way. You tend to run out of hands so I can see the logic of attaching to the phone.

Amazon reviews seem mixed stating setup is fiddly and whatnot, though for this price and given my HTC one M7s sensor has died, its tempting....

To be clear the Lens is a stand alone camera minus the screen and just using the phones screen to show the image. I have one and it is a little fiddly but it is designed well, interfaces pretty well and probably about the right price @ £99. I have use the lens mounted on a mini tripod to take HD video with good results and the range of the WIFI seems to be about 200 feet if not attached to a phone

What? This is a camera in its own right that you simply control from your phone or tablet. It has it's own sensor.

Then why does it say "simply mount the smart lens on to your phone and start shooting"?

because this is the sensor, it connects to your phone, takes 18.2mp pictures and stores them on your phone. It only uses the phone as a view finder!

Poor copywriting.

Can be used with lens in one hand and phone in the other. Doesn't have to be 'mounted'.

Correct - has to be "connected" (wirelessly) to a phone.

Don't see the point.

Just get a TZ40 or the likes, sends pictures to your phone and has wifi remote control.

Then you have a small brilliant camera and a phone instead of a great lump that is fairly pointless on it's own...

But the price is good, so if you like that sort of phone .. hot

The syncing between the lens and phone is absolutely horrendous....

There's reason these don't sell well - they don't work properly!

Good price but given the size you may as well carry a WiFi enabled compact camera. That way you have more flexibility and little compromise.
#16
had this from release and love it. if your phone has NFC then set up couldn't be any easier. it is a bit annoying without NFC however.

Well said! Or just use the phones standard camera :)

OR Both

It is more of a novelty attachment than a useful product

Seriously, read the user reviews from real world users before shelling out your cash for this.

I had this for a couple of weeks and it was not good. The worst thing was the lag.

I have a friend that has one of these, NFC is easier than the extra few clicks you have to make with an iPhone. There was an update around the end of the year that is supposed to have fixed a few issues.

I'm really hoping the new iPhone has NFC.

i have one its ok,
using it with an iphone 5,
cons........
sometimes when you switch it on the wifi doesnt always connect instantly. so I have had to go to settings wifi and choose the wifi manually.
picture quality is nice. for a still image but add kids into the equation not as good.
im using a class 10 32gb micro sd card 48mbs and sometimes does take around 3 seconds to process a pic.


Pros'
using in dark places isnot bad. (doesnt have a flash but picts up light nicely.)
nice zoom in.
can hold lens in hand and take discrete upskirt pics.
also the lens fits a gorilla pod.

overall
nice gimmmickk but could be better. the next upgerade option is more expensive.
also u can take pictures without the play memories app. by clicking on the button on the lens.

Can get a camera for that.

Its a basically a standalone camera, not just a lens. It has its own sensor and only uses your phone to display what it is viewing.

It is essentially the same as strapping a camera to the back of your phone. But it is nicely designed to just look like a lens so I can understand why you got confused.
