    I'm thinking of buying a lense for my iPhone. Something like the following seems like it may be useful for close ups and detailed shots... Anyone with experience using any of these little kits? Might be a complete sham but the frustration of trying to take photos through a loupe has led me here lol

    Waste, buy an actual cam or a point and shoot. Mobile photography requires very little skill and the images are poor quality in comparison.

    You asked for opinion there you go.

    If you have a budget I'd be more than happy to recommend a camera body and all round lense or even focused lenses (i.e. Portrait style, wide etc) most of the inage quality is from lenses over the camera and if you can use RAW format as well as its true colour. ^^

    Not looking to spend really dude just looking for a cheap way to take better pics of bud and trich's using my phone haha. Hard work trying to hold the loupe to phone and get accuracy. The camera on this iPhone X is sweet until you need to do a real close up then focus gets fucked

    I just use a clip on loupe on my phone. Voice activated so I just say shoot to take pics. I expect the hand held usb ones are even better... but if on a budget, the clip on works fine

    Hello Kudos mate. Does the phone have a super auto or macro function? I used my phone for
    pics, a sony experia and I got decent enough pics of the trichs etc...All I did was set to super-auto, then zoom in as much as I could before taking the pics.

    I've been trying to google and find out but not coming to any solution yet, just doesn't focus when zoomed in too far up close! But will keep looking. iPhone X here

    I'll have a look cheers was thinking this clip on set in my top post was like an advanced clip on kit and may help taking beautiful shots but my bet is the basic clip ons probably work just as well. I just get suckered in too easily lol

    The set you've looked at looks like it has a clip on with it so it's got that covered. I just wonder if you could get a cool usb one that connects to your phone for the same price.

    These are my 2... the grey ones impossible to take pics with so that's all I have to compare with

    Find a rough focus with the micro, then just move the plant ever so slightly to get the fine focus. That keeps it all still.

    If the buds are fat, they do sway for a while though so watch out for that
