Quick & Dirty iPhone Macro Lens

Wyatt • • General and Technology

I don’t know why I thought to do this especially since I think taking pictures on a cell phone is relatively stupid; however, I had the parts laying around and figured, “Why don’t I just see what that looks like?”

Supplies

Instructions

  1. Disassemble the camera and salvage the len(s) without zapping yourself. If you really want, you can zap yourself because some people like that … you freaks.
  2. Put the lens inside the soft-case
  3. Put your iPhone in the soft-case
  4. Take macro pictures at a glorious 2.0 megapixels

Update: After writing this, I actually took the time to see if I was original as I though did a quick search at instructables.com. Turns out, I’m not that creative: Cheap iphone macro lens for barcode scanning
