Needs a fake scar.

If you put this on your phone, you also need:

1) A fake scar sticker

2) a white cat (or possibly LOLcat).

Those bikers used these to rob the Apple store?

Not only barrel distortion...

You don't have to get far off-centre on that WA shot before it turns into a smeary mess :(

If I want to take a smallish camera, then I'll grab my Pentax 645NII and a few rolls of Velvia (when the 4x5 is just too big).

Inventor?

Pedant moment, but this annoys me. One does not "invent" a gadget.

Bleary smeary yuck yuck.

Barrell distortion and smeary horror is pretty much inevitable with these sort of extension/adapter lenses. You can get away with a macro extension but widening the field of view is an optical nightmare when you already have a lens between you and the film/sensor.

(imagine I've inserted a back-of-envelope ray diagram here)

See? Nightmare. The only way to make a decent wide angle adapter is to take a drill and remove the existing lens first.

The fisheye gets away with it because it embraces the distortion.

Will this work on a 4S as well or does no-one know yet...?

Same shell so yes. Unless there have been minor tweaks?
