For the longest time, my laser pointer was only good for messing with cats. I saw some posts recently which used the pointer’s lens on a smartphone camera in order to take photos at a higher than usual magnification. I thought I had the wrong laser to join in on the fun. I was wrong. Macr-wrong.
I secured the lens from the laser, mounted it to my Galaxy S2, and started taking pictures of anything I could find. Here’s a few examples of some magnified photography. I haven’t tried a movie yet, have you?
Until I can find a decent electric/video microscope, this method will tide me over!
