DealExtreme sells a 6x Optical Zoom lens for your iPhone's camera.

As noted by Mobilewhack, the attachment costs $15 and doubles the weight of your iPhone.

I'll be the first to say it.

Is that an iPhone in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

I like the "english" on the packaging!!!

Did you look at the "english" on the outside of this zoom lens' packaging?

"Video Collection:
The new design to run of rays effectively avoid the contortion of image, and makes the wide angle, the larger luminousflux, the higher visual acutenss, good for color reduction, which makes the high quality of photography."

BTW, the misspelling on "acuteness" was how they had it! :)

great for a kiddie birthday party

It looks like you're supposed to grab it by the zoom lens and swing the iPhone around like an old-school noise maker.
