OWLE Bubo “iPhone 4 DSLR” adapter gets video demo

Jul 17, 2010

Yesterday's "iPhone DSLR prototype" may still be frustrating purists with its inaccurate name, but owners are simply getting on with using it.  Turns out, this wasn't a one-off DIY effort but the first example of OWLE's Bubo camera mount freshly updated to suit the iPhone 4.  Vid-Atlantic took it out to shoot some test footage, which you can see after the cut.

They used a Canon EF 50mm f1.8 lens fitted to their own static EnCinema 35mm Adapter with some minor modifications, and the app almost DSLR [iTunes link] on the iPhone 4 itself.  The results are surprisingly impressive, and OWLE tell us the quality will only get better as they polish things ahead of release.

The OWLE Bubo mount in its iPhone 3GS-fitting form is $129.99; no word on when the updated version suited to the iPhone 4 will go on sale, though we imagine it'll be priced roughly the same.  The Vid-Atlantic adapter, meanwhile, is $199.
