Step 1: So...
- An x-acto knife or a verrrrrry sharp rock. An x-acto knife works best though. (Not shown)
- A piece of cardboard
- A convex lens. (I got mine from an old microscope)
Step 2: Cut!
Trace around the lens on the cardboard with an x-acto knife or sharp rock. Cut out the circle.
Step 3: Easy As 1,2,3!
Now put the lens into the hole in the cardboard, and make sure it stays in. If it doesn't stay in the hole you may need to use some glue to hold it in.
Step 4: Done
Here are some pro's and con's of this thingamajig.
- Small, compact, can fit in pocket or wallet
- Easy to make
- You need to be careful you dont hit the camera lens with it.
- You need to hold it on (It can be changed so that you don't have to hold it on though)
- (This one anyway) You have to be really close up to whatever you're taking a picture of.
