Doc's Macro Mod Mk 2
Here is the lens. A jeweller's loupe. A cheap plastic one is inexpensive and easy to carry. This one has 2 lenses in built.
I love blue tac and use it to stick it to the mobile phone temporarily. A sliver of bluetac can be kept in the lens
Here is where I place the bluetac. As you can see the loupe has 2 lenses that swing out.
Secured temporarily to my pdaphone.
You can use 2 lenses together for double magnification.
Or just 1 lens.
Here it is in action taking a pic of my minisd card.
Here it is with the flash on.
A side profile.
So is it really worth all the effort and trouble? Here are the sample pics.
Here is a picture of my mini sd without the modification.
Here it is with 1 lens.
And here it is with the second lens. Clearer by far!
Once again a picture without the lens. Generally words are blurry.
And here it is with 1 lens. Very useful when you are taking words or business cards.
So there is it, a small tool which is basically reading glasses for your mobile camera. It can be used with any camera and the physics remain the same. Hope you find this useful!
