Attaching a camera lens to your smartphone is a novel idea that’s gained popularity in recent years. But it’s safe to say that no brand has made a practical product actually worth purchasing at this point. The Olympus Air A01 looks to be the first.

Just like the Sony QX lens camera before it, the Air A01 lets smartphone users transform their phone into a capable shooter. It’s a 16-megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor with a 1/16000 ultra high-speed shutter and 3x digital zoom. The lens easily mounts to user’s smartphones, and uses a handful of apps to replicate the experience of using a DSLR camera. Available in both black and white, it even comes with its own shutter button. The brand plans on releasing the product this March in Japan, but there’s no word as to whether or not this thing will make its way stateside. Check out the video below.
