After the holidays, I wondered if they had more, and they were on sale! So I got a set.
You get a little clippy dohicky and three lenses that you can put together different ways. Basically, a fish-eye, and two variations of close up macros. You clip 'em over the camera hole on your whatever. I'm showing it here on my iThing mini, so I can take a picture of it, but I'm using it clipped to my phone for the example pictures. It's meant for iThings and Samsung Galaxies, but the issue is about fit, not whether the camera can 'use' the lens. My phone's a Motorola Photon and its just fine.
See? Clippy bit:
It seems obvious, but the top is without the lens, bottom is with. Fireworks shows may become fun. And I wanna try this on the Wall o' Cascade at the yarn shop.
But! The fun comes when I use the super-close up lens, to take pictures of yarn, which was the whole plan.
BWAHAHAHA. The top photo is without the lens, the bottom is with. Isn't that fantastic? It makes me look like I know what I'm doing. (Yes, that is hand spun yarn. Yes, I did it. I got 750 yards of three ply out of 4 ounces of 50/50 silk/merino blend. Yes, it took forever. No, I don't know why we're still discussing my sanity as if there's a question about it.)
So there you are, a super fun thing for low cost. Woohoo.
This is my first try, blogging from my iThing with the bluetooth keyboard (whee fun technology) I'll be back later too add a direct link to the lenses, but they're on Amazon.
Happy picture taking!
