I am one of those people that love all things high tech and anything to do with technical gadgets. That is why I was super excited to try out these magnifiers for my iPhone 5.
The ML-515, LensMag™ from Carson Optical are a 2-pack of high powered magnet magnifiers for the iPhone 5™. Included in each 2-pack is a 10x and 15x magnet magnifier. Simply remove the case from your iPhone 5 and place the desired high powered magnet magnifer over the camera. The LensMag™ will now act as a macro lens. No glue or additional pieces needed…the LensMag™ magnetically holds onto your iPhone 5 directly. See and capture detail you never thought possible with your iPhone 5 and the LensMag™. Great for kids & educational exploration!
I then watched the super quick video on how to use them.
After it easily stuck to my iPhone 5 with a magnet I went to work taking some pictures.
Here is the picture of a flower in my front yard without the Carson Magnifier lens.
Here is the picture using the magnifier.
That is amazingly close! You can see dirt particles on the pistil!
Or check out one of these spiders from my back yard.
My hand was slightly skaky today or the images would have been even clearer. Just every time I went to take these amazingly clear pictures I would flinch the slightest bit and it would get blurry. Taking a picture of a dollar bill or coin would be much easier as you could do this sitting down at a table.
These are fun and easy to use lenses to put on your iPhone 5 to take some super close up photos. I already have some great ideas on using it to take science pictures with my girls one day…think Science Projects.
