$8 Detachable Macro Lens for Camera Phone Pics: TB/BB/Mischilings

So, while browsing Amazon, I came across a cheap $8 3-in-1 universal lens kit for cellphones. It attachs with a magnet ring, and I am sure some of you guys have seen them, or heard of them. But thought I would post these for people (Like Myself) whom can't afford SLRs or the lens for them. So here's a cheap alternative, for us folks, on a budget, with only a cellphone at hand.

Anyways, enjoy!

Great photos Shadowfang! I had not heard of this kit so it is interesting for me. I have an SLR but no macro lens so this may work for me as well. Looking good

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I'm buy far from a good photographer, but I thought it was interesting you could get these quality macro shots with a phone, and for less than 10 bucks.

I should add, that I don't have an iPhone. This should work for anyone.

Thx! Amazon links are fine, they just don't like eBay links, IIRC
