    There are several options for stick-on macro lenses for the iPhone that may work for the Pre. However, I think just for sheer inventiveness, the 3-Lens Magnifier - RadioShack.com is pretty cool. Check this out iPhone macro - a set on Flickr. Here's a list of them iphone macro lens radio shack - Flickr: Search.

    well, i took apart an old cd player, and attached lens to the slick palm backplate. didnt think it was working at first, but realized i wasnt putting lens close enough to what i was taking a pic of. I pretty much had to put the phone right on what i was photographing.

    Here is a pic of the pixels on my laptop. makes a pretty crazy pre wallpaper when done in portrait.


    Here is a pic of the head on a small nail, and below it a pic of the nail next to a quarter.



    Here is washington's nose and mouth on a quarter.


    sure does get good and close, but i guess my lens cant focus unless its extremely close to the object.

    yeah that looks like it can only focus on stuff way closer... im guessing you would have different results with a dvd lens but i might be wrong.

    Thanks Jason! This is awesome. I am a complete amature at photography and sure as heck have never been able to do any good macro shots. But I found an old broken gaming system last night, pull out the lens and thought I would give it a try. How cool. My photo is not that great, but this is my first try. I'm sure with some tinkering they will improve. Yet another great reason to love my Pre.

    This is the face of a little green bug I found on my porch this morning. The whole bug is not even an inch long.

    Never mind....I only have 3 post and am not allowed to post pictures yet.

    Small bug face...I actually cropped it a bit and then did a screen capture (see the black edges on the corners). I did that to get rid of a lot of the fuzzy/out-of-focus edges. It did clean it up quite nicely.

    The blurry picture of a barcode and the picture of the YoYo were taken without the magnifier. All other pictures were took with the magnifier. There are three options you can use with the magnifier, 5x, 10x and 15x. After taking the picture of the YoYo, I realized that I need to do a better job dusting my desk.

    I used the lens from a cheap 2 dollar laser pointer that I picked up at Fry's electronics. Here are a few examples of what I got.

    Really Cool pictures everyone! Thanks for the awesome idea! I got my lens out of an old Car Audio Headunit. The first lens that almost touches the CD/DVD has kind of a dome shape to it so I can just take of the back cover and rest the lens on the pres lens and place the touchstone back cover over it and it holds it in perfectly... The second, further back, lens is small so I did the glossy back cover mod... I had to drill ever soo slightly with a step bit and lay it up with glue, its works great.

    Here are some of my favorites so far...

    The first is taken with the lens the almost touches the CD/DVD and it is a Blue jean fabric all I did was set my phone on my leg and snap the picture. The other 3 are done with the lens that was behind that one in the CD/DVD drive.

    Here is my second try. The first picture I posted of a green bug's face was fun, but not really what I was looking for. That lens came out of a really old broken Play Station. The pictures were just too macro. So a coworker happen to have a broken DVD player he was going to throw away. I of course asked if I could have it. Well I tore it apart and found a similar lens to the one I had. I tried it and it was just the same. So before I threw the dvd player away I did some more digging. Sure enough there is a second, larger lens. I tried it out...and MAN what a difference!!! This is exactly what I was looking for! I did not have much time to play with it yesterday, but here are my updated results.
    First picture is with my first lens. VERY close-up. Again, fun but not what I wanted.



    Then with my new lens...MUCH better



    These pictures are of the same subject, a small yellow flower. Now to give you an idea of the size of that flower...

    All of this is amazing! I'd love to find a way to make this a screw-in type object...another thing to try would be the peep-hole lens from a front door , if you can grind it down :-) you get a fish-eye, I think...

    This is a really cool idea... I'm going to have to hit the thrift store to find a DVD player to cannibalize. haha

    I was thinking since the pre doesn't have Macro capability we should develope a case that has a lens that can be slid on and off. It would be just like the plastic cases we use to protect our phones, but just with a slidable lens.
