Replicated Results: Camera Phone Microscope with a Water Drop

Here’s the link to the article I found: http://www.tested.com/news/how-to/3731-tested-enhanced-macro-iphone-photography-with-a-water-drop/

This article shows how you can take closeup images with any cheapo camera phone. Except they use the overblown iPhone.

I find it annoying that they specifically named the iPhone in this article. The same trick works with any camera phone.

I’ve replicated the results with my Samsung Captivate ( Galaxy S ) by dipping my finger into a glass of water and touching the drop to the lens of my phone. I had to do it several times to get a big enough drop. The article specifically states the usage of a syringe. I flipped my phone over quickly and smoothly and opened the camera app. I looked at various things from millimeters away, like my fingertip and denim jeans. The picture I want to share with you is of the LCD screen on my laptop. You can clearly see the RGB matrix. Also Adam Savage.

    All you had snapped was the RGB matrix of your LCD?

    Zero cost text and cyberspace translators are great for getting the all purpose idea of other text.

    If you apply a small amount of clear hair oil or any fat thats transparent , helps retain the shape of drop and also doesn’t allow it to spread on fiber body . Enjoy !!!

    That’s #four on the top items on the FitBit group and I guess it is soon to return.
