For the budding iPhone photographer, the snap-happy peep or the artistic eye, the Japanese shop, Gizmoshop has introduced two great lenses. One, a 180º fisheye and the other, a macro lens attachment for your handset which can add new angles to your photography. The lenses can also be attached to other devices, but Gizmo are selling unique bundles for the iPhone 3G (and 3GS).
While not likely to be implemented in the near future, Samsung‘s MEMS (Micro Electromechanical System) shutter is a technology to look out for in the world of mobile phones. Shutters allow light to the sensor for a determined amount of time and more quickly prepare the sensor for another shot by physically blocking light from the sensor as the image is transferred to memory. No matter the advantage to image quality, mechanical weight and voltage requirements have kept their application in the mobile phone arena impractical.
