Step 1: Create Hardwood Shim to Fit IPad Corner
The iPad case is rounded where the camera sits, and the Photojojo lens attachments (wide angle, telephoto, etc.) require a flat surface to attach the ring that the lens sticks to magnetically. What to do?
I made a shim out of oak wood, about half the size of a fingernail, flat on one side and concave curved on the other, that fits next to the iPad camera and makes a flat surface all the way around the lens.
I used a fine-point marker to mark the position of the shim on the iPad case, then used a drop of super glue to glue it to the case. If you ever change your mind about having it there, it can be removed with careful scraping without damaging the case.
The Photojojp lens ring sticks to that solidly, and the problem is solved.
Step 2: Fit IPad Into Zagg Keyboard Case
Since the Zagg keyboard case depends on the iPad sliding smoothly into it, I had a little problem there, since the ring now sticks out from the case. I realized the iPad will work fine when I slide it upside down into the Zagg case, with the lens
Step 3: Use the Camera
Add the lens attachment, and snap your pictures.
