Introduction: How to Take Macro Pictures With Blackberry Camera 9860

Eventough Blackberry 9860 has a 5MP camera and a capability of taking macro pictures, however its results are not good enough.

To overcome this problem, I have this idea of using the lens from a "door viewer " with a diameter of 14mm and 35-50mm length.

Step 1 & 2 : Cut the end part of the door viewer and take out the lens.

    im using Sony ericson elm and for lens from pointing laser. image about 3 guy picture on windows vista OEM DVD

    Nice job and better image quality than a lot of expensive phone macro lenses. For those who don't want to hack up a door peephole, you can get small glass lenses cheap at I know this because I used their lens for my iPhone macro lens:

    That lens had 51mm focal length (I got that by trial and error). It's $4, but they often have sales.

    If the poster of this instructable has the time, he/she can measure the focal length of the lens they used by focusing a distance light source (like a light fixture) onto a piece of paper. When the image is in focus, the distance between the lens and the paper is the focal length. You don't have to be exact. A shorter focal length will give more magnification, but I found that trying for too much magnification adds distortion.

    The "Lens Finder" on the Surplus Shed site will search their stock based on diameter, focal length, and type (I used plano-convex so I'd have a flat side next the phone.

    Not affiliated with Surplus Shed in any way. It was the cheapest place I could find to get decent glass.

    thanks for the reference

    THANK YOU for this brilliant idea. Great shots!

    You're welcome

    This is great... I just tried it on my Ipad. It works awesome! Thank you for this one! AWESOME.

    I love your project and pictures. I just wonder how many other lenses had been tried on before coming up with this.
