iPhone camera lens


just curious but do any of you use the cheap iphone camera lens one can find on amazon? particularly a macro lens. i just find it a bit more convenient for quick snap shots of the tanks and wanted to ask if anyone had personal experience using one. thanks!

^^ Very slick. Shame it won't work with a case, though, that kills it for me.

You could always make your own with a disposable camera. There are a lot of videos on youtube.

So after reading this thread I purchased a similar lens. Here are a few pics of some of my shrimp, taken with the macro lens.

This is one of the many babies I have in the tank.

Someone on a guitar building site I belong to takes amazing shots, with lots of closeups of the beautiful guitars he crafts. When I commented on the quality of his pics he said they were all done on an Iphone. For the closeups he just holds a jewelers loupe in front of the lens.

I bought a 3-in-1 lens kit off Amazon for my Galaxy S3 that the lenses screw into a case that is included, works great, pictures are great too. All for $10 shipped.
There is a similar one for iPhone too.
