Due to the similar sizes of this lens and the iPhone 4's, I tried holding the CCC in front of the iPhone 4's camera and taking pictures. I found this worked even with the CCC pressed right against the iPhone 4, making it very easy to use, since you don't have to adjust the distance between the 2. The results are very good:
To compare the effect of the lens, I tried taking a picture with and without it, without moving the iPhone:
Things I'm wondering:
- will this work with other lenses as well?
- and other cameras?
- how does the magnification of the lens affect things?
I tried it with a 3x magnifying lens, and the camera couldn't focus as close as with the 8x lens. Maybe a higher magnification allows closer focusing, without changing the actual magnification?
