Magnetic macro lens gives cell pics new life

EVO 4G side by side pics have a staggering difference

So your EVO 4G's camera can take some pretty nice shots of your friends out and about or that funny sign you passed on the highway, but it's still "only a cell phone camera." Blurry, low quality macro shots are to be expected from phone cameras, right? Well, take a look around at most big name online retailers like Ebay and Amazon for a magnet-mounted macro lens.


There are tons of brands out there and of course they will set off your "these are cheap and not worth a dang" radar, but the folks at picked one up just for fun and the image quality is fairly staggering, even if your phone looks pretty silly with the lens attached. I found a few shopping around for less than 20 bucks. Not bad for a cell phone camera; keep it in your pocket for when you want a fairly nice picture on the go.
