    Does this mean that our phone will be capable of barcode scanning with this lens installed?

    Does anyone know of any alternative sources for lens instead of trying to disassemble an old dvd player? I would like to try this out but don't have an old dvd player to destroy!

    mine is out of an old cd player. It has a higher magnification though, as you can see from my pics on page 2.

    I am surprised no one has tried to make a back cover with this lens on there.

    dussyduss on page 2 used a laser pointer lens. I think his came out the best.

    I tried a cdrom player, but the focus distance is also to small. I don't really want to shoot macro, but I want te photograph text, so maybe cheap reading glasses are an option

    Can you use a CD player lens?

    I finally got around to canibalizing an old DVD player with a burnt out motor.

    Haven't gotten a lot of good shots yet, but here are a couple I started with.

    Will this help at all with distance shots?

    Not in the least. You cannot focus on anything beyond a very short distance away with it in place.

    This is awesome. I can't believe I'm just now learning about this.

    Now off to find a lens!

    I'm going to do this but it's pretty sad that Palm is so stupid as to release a phone with a fixed focus lens.
