Apexel 20x HD Macro Lens Universal Clip for iPhone Samsung Galaxy Note LG HTC Black

Review from Jeannie’s Product Reviews

I was really impressed with how well this is packaged. The lens and clip come in a shaped, dense foam protective unit within a cardboard outer so its very safe. Its very easy to attach to your phone, simply clip lens into holder and slip over top of phone – even it the case I keep my phone in this was fine. I’ve a Samsung mini S3.

I’m a keen very amateur photographer and enjoyed using my trusty Fuji-finepix for years, but its quite bulky and I love the spur of the moment pics. So with phone cameras getting better and better over the last few years I use my phone mostly, as its always with me.
I’ve a large garden so love to take images every time I’m out, of whatever catches my eye. Right now its lots of fungi, colour changes of leaves, cobwebs strung with pearly raindrops etc…there’s always something every day. What I miss though is the macro settings of my camera so was really keen to try out one of these.

I found it needs lots of practice, my indoor shots were too dark and if I used flash I had too many shadows. Maybe a way round that with practice/knowledge of course? Still, by moving objects to where there was good natural light I got some far better results. Then I moved outside yesterday, a sunny day but damp. I found I needed to get really close to subject, but too close and my breath moved it and set it swinging, and at this close that created lots of blur! That can be an effect you want sometimes though – no knowledge is ever wasted. The raindrops got on the lens at one point too…I found I needed to really play around with how close to get for different things, and to work out light source etc. but given its so easy to take as many as you want on digital and edit later, that just made it more fun!

I really enjoyed using this and its something I’m gong to keep close for future use. I’ve shown the results of some of my playing yesterday, and you can see just how fun it is.The flowers are verbena bonariensis and everlasting wallflower bowles mauve, so if you know flowers you’ll know just how tiny these are! If you know more about photography than me then of course you’d do better, but for most of us this is a gadget well worth the money if you want some great close up images.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
