Introduction: IPhone 4, 4s, and 5 Camera Attachment

 I love Macro photography. But the lens are too expensive.I decided to design a attachable lens for the iPhone.
I'm hopping to win the Replicator 2  in the 3D design Contest, so I can make my design a reality.

I got an iPhone 4S in December, my first iPhone. I used a Harbor Freight 3x magnifier. It worked well, but the image was a round area in the center of the photo with black edges. Have you tried your system? Does the image cover the full frame or make a circle in the center of the photo? Thanks.

Could you tag a photo? If there's black boarders around e image try zooming in

I tried earlier to upload a photo, but it was not working. This is the best I can give you now. You can see the round border of the image, even though I cropped most of black away.

Pinch to zoom in and that will take the black boarders away.

or put the lens right up to the camera and that will probably remove the black boarders

This link shows a photo of the magnifier I have (3x). It is not possible to move the lens nearer to the camera without cutting away the funnel shape.

Is the plastic over hanging the lens? If it is try to sand down the plastic that's over hanging
