The basic instructions are dead simple: salvage the lens of a cheap disposable camera and attach it to a wire brace.
The genius behind this contraption is its reusable. Unlike just taping the salvage macro lens, this one’s for keeps. So if you’re game for a little iPhone camera upgrade, take a load of this:
- Go buy/borrow a disposable camera that should be dirt cheap by now. Get the lens.
- If you don’t have these materials readily available, invest in wire and a pair of pliers.
- Mold the wire into the desired shape.
- Or if you’re confused, go here for the dope on this little DIY project. (We promise you can’t go wrong.)
Oh, one last thing. Don’t go about wantonly destroying disposable cams. Just disassemble it to get the lens. The things may be obsolete, but they aren’t useless either.
Now if you’ll excuse us we’re going to try this out for ourselves and see how much fun taking pics using a macro lens is.
