iPhone user Jeremy Salvador was not content with its small camera lens, so he 'hacked' the lens of a digital SLR camera to make it work on the iPhone. The result is a customized mounting system called the iPhone DSLR, in which iPhone rests inside the mount and the DSLR lenses are attached on the front. iPhone DSLR can be mounted on a tripod and has dual handle grips for easy movement. So far, Jeremy has demonstrated the device using Nikon SLR and Canon EF lenses, but says it will be compatible with most other lenses by using an adapter.
Camera: iPhone 4 with OWLE Bubo and EnCinema 35mm Adapter
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f1.8 lens
He also recommend using an iPhone app called "Almost DSLR". It will flip the image so that you can view it right side up and will lock in focus, exposure and do much more. Here's an HD video shot using the iPhone 4 DSLR with the above equipment:
Here is another footage using Nikon 50mm f1.8 and 100mm f2.8:
