I’m not sure who 9GAG is, but the article came up as a related link somewhere.
There have been a couple prototypes for such devices and this one is titled “Turn Your iPhone 4 into a DSLR” which I had to laugh at. Let’s review: DSLR stands for Digital Single Lens Reflex (as opposed to the old dual lens reflex cameras) which basically implies there is a mirror flipping up somewhere to take a photo (be it sensor or film in old SLR fashion) and the iPhone definitely doesn’t have a mirror.
Also, the general advantage of a DSLR vs. a point and shoot camera is the much larger physical size of the sensor, which the iPhone is severely lacking.
My ultimate point: Buy a real camera, it’ll be way better.
