As far as the Alice camera goes, seems pretty silly to me. Ergonomics are poor, and you've still got a tortuous path for the light to the phone sensor. Seems a better option would be a decent camera with a much better Wifi camera to phone interface.
I think the Alice is a stand alone camera with its own sensor and does not pass the light through to your mobile phone It is literally not much different than using Oi.Share with an Olympus camera. Unless I misunderstood that thing.
