The Ridiculous Cameraphone Telescopic Lens

And you thought 20 megapixels on a phablet cameraphone was getting silly?

This unwieldy beast is the 'Super Spy Ultra High Power Zoom 80X Telescope', a telescopic lens for bolting onto your smartphone's camera to enhance your zoom potential. 

Measuring 39.5cm in length with a 88 x 395mm lens, the Super Spy claims to extend your phone's camera range to take print-worthy shots from 100 metres. While it's hardly going to challenge a DSLR for image quality, it's an extravagant solution to camera phone photographers longing to get up close and personal with distant subjects.

Lens

The lens comes with a tripod for stationary shots, allowing you prospective sleuths to get images of their target with all the stealth of a flaming fog horn. 

With models designed for both iPhone and Samsung, a Super Spy will set back smartphone photographers some £150.

You're going to need some bigger pockets.
