The massive 15.5” beast comes with its own mounting tripod, which can be used to rotate the lens a full 360 degrees when your smartphone is attached. If you prefer to handhold the lens, you can opt for that as well, although we don’t suggest it.
Currently, the lens is available for the Samsung Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3/4, iPhone 5/5s and iPhone 6/6 Plus, each of which comes with a device-specific case to ensure a secure mount to the lens.
For focusing, there are no internal components. Instead, you’ll be relying on your smartphone’s built-in autofocus and exposure capabilities.
