Stockholm through my iPhone lens – 20€ Macro lens test

Last week I read a post on the internet about a macro lens for iPhone. The post was really positive even though the hardware had a cost of €20! I thought it sounded really strange. Can a macro lens for an iPhone be of any good, and can it cost you only €20?

So during this great easter holiday in Sweden I thought that I should try it out so I bought one two days ago. When I first held it my hands I thought it was some kind of a joke. Could these tiny bits really produce anything?!

Of course, if you compare it to normal Macro lenses you will get really disappointed, but if you look at it as a fun gadget to bring you around (and I can tell you it’s addictive!!) it’s great!

These are some shots I took during my first day with the lens, and at the bottom you’ll see what they look like in real.

  1. These are really good, Pedro. Funnily enough I watched a YouTube video about this yesterday — which lens did you buy? And are you still on the iPhone 4? I’ve been taking a bunch of Instagram pics recently, and really enjoying it.

    Also, after a long absence I’m trying to catch up with people’s blogs, although I can’t be very thorough about it, so please excuse me whizzing backwards in time through your blog!

    1. Thank you Mufidah!

      You don’t have to excuse yourself at all 🙂 This blog is to begin with for me. A place to share my thoughts, ideas and pics, a place to “get things out” 🙂

      If there is a single person out there that enjoys it I’m really happy, and can any of my words or pics be of joy, thrill or bring any kind of good thoughts to the world I’m even happier.

      Appreciate your thoughts, comments and most of all your insights on your own blog 🙂
