Take Super-Macro Photos With Cellphone Camera

Intro: Take Super-Macro Photos With Cellphone Camera

In this Instructable, I will show how to take amazing macro photos with almost any mobile phone camera.
It can shoot very nearly from the object (about 1-3mm max) putting a small laser lens over phone lens.

Materials:
- 1 laser lens, you can find it on laser-pens like the one on the photo
- A mobile phone with camera
- A piece of clear tape.

Step 1: Preparing the Lens

this is very easy...
First take the small lens from the laser and paste over the tape.
Then put the lens over the phone lens (like shown on photo) setting it on the center of the phone lens and firmly with the tape.

Step 2: And Thats All!

Thats ALL, no go around taking great macro photos of anything!!!.

    I used a lense from a cd burner and my nokia 6230i mobile. Heres two extreme closeups of my fingerprint and a written full stop.

    This is cool but I don't have a laser pen hanging around. Would this work with the lens from an old optical disc player?

    Member "nodnodwinkwink" shows a couple pics of his fingerprint using lens from CD burner back on Sep 4, 2009. 6:13 AM and it worked awesome! I don't see why a player lens shouldn't work. Try it! That's the fun of doing this. Experiment!

    They look like half of my photos, except they have a nice blur around the edges.
