Super Secret Spy Lens Lets You Capture Subjects on the Sly

Super Secret Spy Lens: Love It or Leave It?

Trying to get someone to "act natural" in front of a camera is like trying to perfect my costume for a Halloween party: I try, but am never 100 percent believable. With most folks, there's always a bit of apprehension that keeps you from getting that perfect photojournalistic (read: candid) shot, but this little gadget may help you out in that department.

The Super Secret Spy Lens ($50) has a discreet side cutout, fashioned with a precise inner mirror so it looks like you're aiming straight ahead, but are really capturing images on the sly. Now, this can be a great tool if you aren't a pro at putting your subjects at ease, but since that's part of the job of a photographer, wouldn't you want the practice? Also, I might feel a bit like a peeping Tom, but maybe that's just me.

I have this thing it's awesome once you get used to it. It takes a minute to adjust to the fact that you can't really use your autofocus with it because when auto adjusts it changes the placement of the lens, but I've gotten great shots in downtown and at farmers markets.
