    As seen in...

    Remember that very first time you went out with your shiny new SLR, determined to shoot some Pulitzer-worthy people shots? You know, real stuff. Candid shots of people just living their lives and doing real things completely unaware that they were on camera.

    It's hard.

    People have a sixth sense for knowing when someone's taking their photo. Especially so when you've got an SLR and a big lens pointed right at 'em.

    Our Super-Secret Spy Lens is the answer.

    It's the ultimate accessory for kids, the photo-shy, street photography or any time you want natural, unposed shots.

    Meant to fit the end of your SLR's zoom lens, this guy has a secret cut-out on the side and a precision mirror assembly inside. In short, you can shoot left, right, up, or down (it swivels 360 degrees), all while appearing to shoot straight ahead.

    The result? The picture-perfect candid shots you've always dreamed of.

  • FAQ

    Q: Does the Super-Secret Spy Lens work with Prime Lenses?

    A: It sure does! And your photos will look sharp and beautiful, just like normal. We recommend using focal lengths of 50mm or greater to reduce vignetting.

    Q: How do I figure out what size adapter ring to get with my Spy Lens?

    A: You'll need to know the filter size (aka thread size) for your lens. You can usually find this marked on any filters you may have attached to your lens, on the lens itself, or on the back of your lenscap.

    Or, just click the drop down menu as if you're going to choose a size, and choose the very last option. Our handy dandy product picker will help you pick just the right size for our very lens.

    Q: Will the Spy Lens work with non-SLR cameras?

    A: It may! If you can use standard SLR-style filters on your lens, it should work. Some cameras have adapters that let them use standard SLR-mount filters. For example, this adapter for the Canon G9 allows you to use the Spy Lens!

    Q: Just how Ultimate is this Kit of yours?

    A: The Ultimate Kit comes with all 7 adapter rings, so you can attach your Spy Lens to almost any lens you come across. So, pretty ultimate!
