'Super lens' for phone photographers?

Green-House claims 8x magnification.


Any kind of photographic quality claims attributed to phone cameras and other combo devices should be taken with a pound of salt, but the trend probably won't be going away anytime soon. But little did we know that people would go to great lengths, literally , to give their phone cams more lens power.

The latest example is a kit from Japan-based Green-House, which includes a "super lens" that it claims has an 8x zoom along with a handset clamp and tripod, according to Gadgetell. Yet if this kind of unwieldy appendage really becomes popular, we wonder if it just makes more sense to design a camera that adds a phone and other functions , rather than the other way around.
