I’ve tried these camera lens accessories before and I wasn’t impressed really, I just don’t like the idea of things hanging off my phone or tablet but this one from Kodak I think may have changed my mind about that. It’s called the Pixpro and there’s two model with different optical zoom levels, but it looks real, not like those little cheapie looking ones that you find everywhere and this one appears to be and actual wireless camera that snaps onto your phone or tablet. I don’t know, looks great to me..
