    Lenses for your Droid's camera?

    I love photojojo & all their cool stuff. I found these lenses which can attach to any phone to enhance picture taking. Just an FYI for those want to trick out their camera.

    Fisheye, Macro, and Wide Angle Camera Phone Lenses

    Neat! I wonder if they work well. Are the pictures much better? Does it fit on most phones without falling off?

    Edit: oh neat, it uses a magnet. Hm, one problem is that the flash on my droid is so close to the lens. I don't know if I could stick that magnet/lense on without blocking the flash.

    True; however, consider the "quality" of the LED flash on the Droid. I've found most pictures I take with the flash look worse than pictures I take without the flash!

    Yeah, but I use the flashlight all the time. Perhaps the magnet can be trimmed a bit with a knife and not block the flash.

    Me too.. I always use the flashlight app.

    I guess I misunderstood how this camera lens works? Do you have to attach a magnet permanently to your phone, then the lens attaches to that?

    I thought that the magnet was affixed to the lens, then it simply, magnetically attaches to the phone... no?

    Yes, I think so.

    Yep... you're right (I didn't notice the link in the OP, but I just saw it and checked it out)....

    This is from the website:

    "They work with any camera phone and attaching them is easy breezy! A detachable magnetic ring sticks to your cell, providing a sturdy, shake-free hold between the lens and your phone."

    You're right, I bet the magnet could be easily trimmed, but I wonder if the tiny bit of light that would leak in through that space would affect the picture at all? I'm very tempted to buy a set of these lenses simply out of curiosity! (Also, I don't have a camera besides my Droid camera! My wife has a nice digi-cam, but it's always with her)

    If I do buy these lenses, I will be sure to report back my experiences here and I'll also post up the pics I take through them for reference.

    I just ordered some for my droid. I think the ring is small enough that it won't block the LED light. I'll post on it once I get them.
