Generally when taking macro pictures I just hold a Lupe over the lens of my point and shoot camera as one of our members suggested and it works great but the other day a member mentioned a cheap macro lens on eBay so I checked it out.

Sold for the iphone but i modded it to use on my coolpix and these are the results and remember the lens including postage delivered to my home was a total of £1.12 !!!!!!!!!! how do they do it ?

All pictures are cropped sections from the first image.

Pictures taken with no thought to lighting and holding the camera not on a tripod but still not bad ? :)

ps: Have I ever mentioned I love retirement ? :) :)

Cool stuff! I have one of these little jewles, stuck the magnetized ring to the front of a pair of 2x reading glasses so i can snap it on when i need a REALLY close look. ;-)

It comes from China I suppose,
it's really unbelievable, if I want to ship from here a letter to Asia I have to pay 2.3 EUR (1.7£ circa),
they are able send you an object in a multiball envelope including postage for less.
good retirement!
