8MP is the most you would ever need, unless your printing out images greater than 8" x 10". Anything more than 8MP is just a waste.

This is idiotic.

The downfall of the iPhone camera isn't the zoom or the # of megapixels, it's the lens and the size of the sensor (and by size I don't mean # of megapixels, I mean actual size). Neither of which can be fixed with this disgusting add-on...

Considering how bulky this will be, you might as well get one of the newer mirrorless digital cameras.

I can't stand the people claiming "racism" simply because a black artist produced a crappy product. The only racist person is the person yelling "RACISM!!"

--

Beyond that, I defended will.i.am for investing his money and trying to come up with something innovative. Unfortunately he failed miserably. Both products are tremendously ugly and are about the stupidest ideas I could possibly imagine.

Well said.

I had the outdated image of Apple/Mac users being cool, visionary hippy people.

Man that's long gone.

Today it's entitled iPhone people who walk around gabbing nonstop on their phones or texting like zombies, oblivious to people they're about to crash into and traffic around them as they arrogantly march into busy intersections without looking.

These are people who have never had an original idea in their heads their whole lives and rush to crush any inventiveness they perceive in others - unless that idea comes from the almighty Apple Inc.

Criticize the product all you like....I've seen the interview on Engadget and personally it's not for me...But that's not the issue. It's the personal attacks and the mentality reminiscent of a pack of hyenas tearing away at a downed antelope.....Do you really want to be part of that?

I'm quite disgusted at what I've seen in this and the other thread. There's some seriously questionable vitriol at work here and it's just coming across as a load of entitled rich white kids piling in.

I like the idea, and the coolness factor of a dock camera, but with all the quality DSLR's out today, this pricepoint better come WAY down before this is anything aside from novel fodder to the BEP fans. Also, no way I'm sporting a device with I AM on the front of it, don't care how much better it makes my camera phone. Finally, for the size of the thing, I can't see this much more than just another attempt by a celebrity at separating a fan from their money, and clearly not a very well thought out attempt at that.

Almost 400 downvote posts and counting.

So, if MR is any representation of what will happen next, I'd say

Will.B.Out

his investment and any $$ spent.

What in the holy hell are you talking about?

Subtle racism? Because people see a crappy, severely overpriced and needlessly hyped iPhone accessory and point it out? I'm sorry, I didn't receive my monthly book of racial codewords and dog whistles from the RNC so I must have missed something /s.

How does some retro throwback camera phone case show the iPhone's impact on design *at all* exactly? This thing makes the iPhone utterly invisible and useless as a, you know, personal communicator, internet device, iPod.

Check out all the personal attacks....What have they got to do with the product? Explain the nasty zeal to me....I've not seen anything like it.

Now that s not too unattractive, if the performance could match the promise.

But you have to remember that behind that 'lens' lies the iPhoney pinhole camera. The image quality is always gonna suck.

Hey, Bill, stop tying to make a silk purse outta pig's ear. You got away with Fergie. Just quit while you're ahead, yo! (or whatever)

Amen brother. Welcome to the Apple Consumer Plantation. Kindly plug in these nice white earbuds and leave your individuality at the door.
