Geeky Mod: Great Looking Macro Shots With Your Cell Phone
Although cell-phone cameras are improving in quality, offering higher pixel counts and better lenses, they still lack the photographic punch of a more advanced camera or DSLR. However, if you want to get more from your current cell phone camera without splashing out, you can by adding a macro magnifying lens to your device.
A recent modification by a modder by the name of Mathijs did just that. The modder took a macro lens from an old unused camera and strapped it to his HTC phone. The simple, yet slightly undignified, modification as seen in the video below, has surprisingly positive results.
A slightly more ridiculous modification, which includes taping an SLR lens to the back of the iPhone, can be found over at Hack A Day.
