Interchangeable Lenses

The SP (Self Portrait) Lens will be released today. Built with UFF-i Technology, the lens is perfect for use on the go, in the studio or even in your own home. Just simply place it on the end of your camera, make sure you're smiling and click-away. The angle of the lens allows the screen to be clearly visible, which means all your self-portraits will be perfectly framed and your arms will no longer grow tired from the extended arm pose found in abundance on social networking sites.
The Self-Portrait lens is also perfect for your holiday. No longer will you have holiday snaps where you look harassed and out of breath as the SP lens means you no longer need to dash back into the frame after setting the self-timer off.
The SP lens will bring piece of mind too,” said spokesperson May Duppe. “Gone are the days when you need to trust a complete stranger with your precious DSLR as the SP lens means you can be in the photograph and still have your camera firmly in your grasp.
Inspired from binocular designs, the SP lens uses mirrors and prisms to effectively bend light around a curve and the revolutionary “aFill-Poro” design means that DSLR users finally have a camera that can shoot what's behind it.
The SP lens was created after several months of research and experiments by the makers in East Korea. It was scheduled to be released last April but due to a delay in production the lens can only just be released.
We are happy with the final product,” said May Duppe. “It's a lens that is easy to use and it allows you to shoot when you're ready, not when the timer or your friend tells you it's time.
The creation of the lens was brought about after the Korean company, Foolsum were plagued by requests for a lens that could fit to a DSLR enabling the photographer to take quick yet effective self portraits without the raised arms leading into the shot which are so prominent at the moment.

I have to admit I fell for this (but did wonder why no company was specified)

What no image stabilising.....Sad

I actually like the idea of this. Maybe a company will actually make one...?

Assuming it was reasonably cheap, it could find a nice little niche market (in the same kind of way the lensbaby has done)

I have to say the picture isn't very convincing though, it looks like a few lenses stacked together with some clever image editing to me...
And UFF-i technology? LOL
