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 them.
Opteka's 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, it 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.

Works as stated, but it is a little obvious unless quite far away (not exactly a discrete thing). Use with a zoom...
Also, because it mounts on the end of a lens (like a filter does), it turns when the lens focuses, so you have to hold the mirror unit when focusing to keep it pointing in the right direction.
The product description says "This lens provides bright, crisp, distortion free images. It is sized to accommodate all viewing distances from near wide-angle to full zoom." Nothing could be further from the truth. Images were blurry and grainy, totally unusable. Same shot taken with same camera using same settings produced very good images. This product is junk.
It is not actually a lens. It is just a round black metal thing with a mirror stuck sideways inside it. The name written on its box is more appropriate: it is a MIRROR ANGLE SCOPE. And remember: its ring is 58 MM! It does not come with any additional step down or step up rings. You have to purchase them yourself. My Sony Alpha 300 has a 55 ring thread, so I bought a 58 MM step up ring, and it works perfectly with this scope. It is a cheap accessory, but it does what it is supposed to do. Beware that it functions only with autofocus mode on. You could still use it with manual focus, but you have to use both hands to position the scope (which you can easily move around)and MANUALLY FOCUS your lens. It is troublesome! And, when you use autofocus, it keeps on turning up and down when it cannot autofocus. Make sure you shoot something which your lens can easily focus, then this scope will focus easily and does not move crazily. Also, you can only use it with a focal length of 50mm or...
