Impress your friends taking cool macro-photos using a camera phone and a swiss army knife with a magnifying glass.

I use my SonyEricsson k750i for a phone and an army knife that was once given to me by my dear collegues as a birthday present. Somehow these two seem to fit perfectly together.

Just put the magnifying glass in front of the camera lens...

THE NOKIA N95 CAN TAKE MACRO PHOTOS WITHOUT ANY LENS.LOOK THE VIDEO. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDwk_nN765k

whats a macro? i get the computer type..

Macro is used to describe photos taken with a very short focus, so you can take pictures of very small objects. Normal digital cameras only focus down to maybe 20cm when not in macro mode, hence the many blurry pictures of tiny electronic things. Phone cameras are the worst offenders as they have fixed-focus at a distance of a few metres, so blur horribly when used for close-ups. I think there should be a mandatory "how to take macro photos" instructable before posting photos, but then I'm a camera nazi :P

my camera has macro mode, or somethign like that, that even allows you to zoom(like with the zoom button) to something like the tip of a pen. cost like, $400. worth it though. :]

yeah, built in digital macro is great

yup. btw, you replied a month late. XD

Does that matter...? I'm replying 2 years late... lol

I've got that on a $150 Canon Powershot SD1000.

This just sums up the beauty of Instructables. Making magic out of the commonplace. Good one!
