    You need some optics to transform a 35mm lens to be usable on 1/4" sensor, kind of Speed Booster that takes into account the existing lens (like the BeastGrip has).

    LOL...I was just joking of course, but learned something from these posts...no interest in one but amazed to learn that such a thing as "Beastgrip" had been invented.

    i ordered the BeastGrip DOF adapter in this second round on KickStarter. I'm excited to try out some fast manual lenses on a phone sensor. Just to play around. :)

    That should make for an interesting project...look forward to the results.
    I just Googled "Beastgrip" and have to be honest, I came away with this thought:

    If I was taking a walk...wanted to have more photographic capability with me than just an iPhone...and had to carry a Beastgrip, plus an adapter, plus a camera lens anyway...seems like the addition of a normal camera body wouldn't be much of a showstopper, but I may be missing something.

    What I really need would be a dump phone with good quality 1/2" sensor and C-mount capability.
