Life through a lens – Part 1

At the weekend I was introduced to a lovely gadget that will be of great benefit to me when it comes to miniature photography – iPhone camera lenses (other devices are available). The package comes with 3 lenses (Macro, Wide Angle and Fish Eye) but it is the Macro that really interests me.

As I have my phone on me at all times and I take an extensive amount of pictures with it when gaming and even when painting I think it will of great benefit. The camera is pretty good quality (for a phone, it’s a phone first and foremost) but zooming in has always been an issue.

Combining this little gadget with the Foldio Kickstarter I backed recently gives me a nice portable studio. An extra piece to the set would be a phone-specific tripod to mount it on for great pictures. And lo and behold a quick ebay search reveals 1 of these too!

I have ordered the lenses and will hopefully trial out this weekend coming at the next tournament – Paddyfaux. Come back and read the review!

    looks cool. I may just have to pick these up myself for when my foldio arrives 🙂

    When these arrive I’d super appreciate some ‘before and after’ pictures 🙂

    @Dr Lox Will do a comparison shot for you with Part 2 of this article. And expect a few more shots along the way. If any future posts have a lens used I will tag it as such. Makes it easier for everyone to see.
