I posted the other day about how I’d been fiddling around with a homemade macro lens for my iPhone and creating some interesting shots. My friend Az left a comment about the the Ōlloclip lenses for iPhone so I thought I should check them out.
There are a range of lenses for iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, wide-angle, fish-eye, telephoto, and macro. After mulling it over I decided to order the 4-in-1 (fish-eye, telephoto, and 10x and 15x macro lenses) for iPhone 4 and iPod touch.
These were the first photos. I have to do a bit more fiddling but I am pleased with the results, so far.
As a matter of fact, I am thinking of ordering the Macro 3-in-1 (7x, 14x, and 21x) IF it works on the 4… (It’s for the 5). I have to find out.

Some older photographs I have reworked using a number of iPhone and iPad apps.
The Queen Anne’s Lace image reminds me of old tintypes.
I love the coloured ones because they have a very retro look. They remind me of old Technicolor postcards.

After reading a few posts about using the lens from a laser-pointer to make a macro lens for your iPhone, I decided to try it out. I took the lens out of the pointer, used a medium-sized paperclip to hold the lens, and placed the paperclip between my Roots case and my phone the lens can then be adjusted over the phone’s lens. Hey! Presto! A macro lens.
I would like to build the larger microscope but I am carpentry-challenged, so may have to have someone do that for me.
I have done a little experimenting and here are a few of the resulting images.
