    After that, why not buy a mouthpiece and loudspeaker for your camera?

    Use an app instead?

    I use iPhone and don't know if other systems carry these two apps, but 6 x 6 makes the phone behave a bit like a hasselblad. Hipstamatic has a whole bunch of virtual lenses, even in the basic kit. I find them quite fun.

    I bought mine from e-bay for iphone 4s. It cost £9 including postage. for that I got the tele photo lens, small tripod and the extra backing plate for the phone and whats more it works a treat.

    Camera can already make more than enough noise.

    I use my polarised sunglasses held with one glass over the lens - gets some pretty spectacular images:thumb:
