Imaging Trichomes with a $15 Macro Lens

My phone takes the worst pictures, so I bought a Universal Lens Kit for it from Canadian Tire in the Cell Phone Accessory section. At $15, I'm not risking a lot.

The Upside
- Cheap
- Easy install - take off
- Pictures are a little better, but not by much.

The Downside
- Pictures are a little better, but not by much.
- You have to move your phone closer/farther to focus manually.

Is it worth a small bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken? Probably.
But I'm still going to get a macro lens for my Cannon Rebel.

More please! Love macro shots of weed. It almost looks like it's from another planet.

It might be plastic and Chinese but I've spent $15 in a lot worse ways before. It's really not too bad.

Not too bad at all. Amazing macro shots, Tychomonolyth! Love the close up pistil shot and the macro of calyxes above it! Looks like its worth it! Looking forward to seeing some macros with a cannon rebel with a macro lens! Thanks for sharing, brother!


patmando- Try putting the camera up to the lens. It will focus correctly. That way it looks less silly and gets a better macro. Haha. Lots of resin on that pheno! Thanks for sharing!

Does this look like the same thing? We don't have Canadian Tire in Australia obviously.
