Default Lenses for phones to take pictures

Does anyone have any experience with lenses you can buy to snap on to your phone and take pictures of Wildlife? I am looking for something to zoom in and take pictures. If anybody has any experience it would be greatly appreciated. I don’t want to break the bank

I have one around here somewhere. I think it's 12x... And useless if you can't pro it up something solid.

This, for sure!

I've tried a couple, and my sense is they all do pretty much what they claim to do: make far away things seem closer. Wal-Mart sells a 12x online that is ok, but like rt8 says, it's all about being able to stabilize it. Unlike digital zoom, which merely crop the image, optical zoom moves the lens farther away from the image sensor. Therefore, just like a rifle scope or binos, as the power increases the more any movement is detected. This movement results in blurry pics. If you can stabilize your gun - such as with a solid rest or bipod/tripod - the results can be excellent. Otherwise it's just a pain in the buttocks.

I got this Optizoom $20 online that fits on iPhone. Doesnt work very good limited zoom and moves off alignment too easy. Main problem is objective lense ainít big enough. Save your money. Did better with the larger field of view with binocs but real trick aiming pushing button for the shots. Screenshots of iPhone works for enlargements. Need a way to fasten binocs or scope to the iPhone to have your good optics... Never found such available??
