Giveaway: Easy-Macro gives your phone camera a boost
Have you ever wished you could zoom in even closer with your camera phone? Do you want to capture those details on flowers, bugs or even a blade of grass? Easy-Macro helps with that. And I have TWO to give away.
The Easy-Macro is basically a rubberband that fits around your camera, making it versatile and able to fit on pretty much every camera. I used it on the Samsung Galaxy SIII and it worked just fine.
The Easy-Macro has a small concave plastic lens on the band that fits over the camera hole on the phone. The Easy-Macro provides 4X magnification of the image on the camera. I found it worked best to 1) turn off the flash and 2) NOT use the zoom function on the phone. Instead, move the phone toward the object and adjust as necessary until the subject becomes clear and in focus.
The photos were pretty good for what this product is and costs. There is no software to make this work. The Easy-Macro, which runs $15 from the Easy-Macro website, comes on a credit-card sized sheet that easily slips into a wallet so that it can be carried anywhere.
I found that in order to get the crispest, sharpest pictures, it's important to keep the Easy-Macro as clean as possible. Any finger-prints cause the image to looks smudged and blurry.
The Easy-Macro is a great stocking-stuffer for the phone camera aficionado, and let's face it, with the quality of phone cameras and the popularity of Instagram, there are lots of them out there. I have two Easy-Macros to give away!
