Is this like bolt on telephphoto lenses so your Samsung can take cool pix of the moon :grin:

I rewrote my reply in my head a dozen times, obviously the best camera you can get is the one you have with you.

Having said that my stepson who loves his Samsung phones has just got a mirror less kit to capture the growth of his first child.

Regardless of how much Apple pay a pro photographer to use their phone to capture images the laws of physics prevent it from doing as good a job as a dSLR. Adding a fancy external lens cannot make the image better.

However the use of images has changed dramatically since I started selling them and prints of them,so for many use cases it doesn’t matter anymore, so if you want a better zoom or a closer up, it could prove worthwhile for you
