My Sunday Photo – Week 30.

FullSizeRender

My brother has always loved gadgets – and luckily he sends a few my way too.

IMG_6284This week brought some happy post in the form of an Acesori Lenskit for smartphones, which features three interchangeable lenses (a fish eye, wide angle and a macro) and was under $10.

I’ve only had chance to try the macros lens, which magnetically attaches to the phone (in my case an iPhone) as this picture shows. While I’ve taken zoomed in photos before this style is completely new so I really need to look into how to do it properly. I’ve had a lot of fun trying it out and I haven’t tinkered with any of the photos.

My first impressions are you need a very steady hand, good light and should remember that it’s still a phone (especially if your first love is a DSLR).

I’ve long been a fan of the iPhone camera and I think this will only enhance the pleasure I get from taking photos with mine. I’ll do a full review once I’ve played with the other lenses, if people are interested.

  1. Wow, what fantastic close-ups! The colour in the first photo is so vivid. I think I’d like to try one! My DSLR is becoming rather unreliable in its old age, so I’m relying on my iPhone more and more to take photos.

    1. Not a bad price either. My big camera is also struggling. It has marks on the sensor which I tried to get cleaned but they’ve just smeared them. Obviously the pics are not the same quality but I think they’re pretty impressive for a phone.

  5. Wow, that was an amazing price. The pack I bought was nearer $100 for mine. As you know I’ve not got the hng of mine, still struggling to get clear pictures so have pretty much given up. But these are great. That flower looks like it’s got jewels on it.

    1. I know what you mean, I had to take quite a few to get them clear. It was a bit frustrating. The flower has glitter in it, they came that way 🙂
