iPhone macro lense pics...don't hate

I can't afford a nice dslr camera like some of you. I can afford a Chinese made 5 dollar iPhone macro lense though. With this I was able to finally take a few close ups. I don't want to hear any crying about crappy iPhone pics I warned you in the title. Heres a few shots I took tonight I'm no photographer but this is more just an example of what an ebay iPhone lense looks like Click image for larger version

Nice. My best with a $10-15 lenses



It works much better in sunlight or good lighting.

If you're using the type that combines both the macro and wide-angle lenses, be sure to remove the wide-angle lens before shooting with the macro. Otherwise, you'll hit some real distortion.

Mine has fisheye, wide angle, portrait and macro. Macro is really hard to use, but I do have a tiny tripod for it.

Pretty much any of the cheap eBay ones will do the trick

Were these pics taken with the new iPhone 5? That's what I have and have no problem dropping $15 on a macro lens. I didn't even know that one existed!

Mine were taken with the 4S. The multiple lenses is well worth $15. If you want to upgrade, surf around. Some get up to around $60. They're hard to use though. But my 4S takes some amazing pics. Here's another:
