Camera Detachable camera lens - With Sample Pictures

I ordered one of the generic lenses for phone camera from amazon. These lenses are a good addition but not perfect.
You can check out the sample pictures here

Below is the order in which the pictures where uploaded.

1. Photo using the stock app. No lens,
2. Macro
3. Without Macro
4.Wide Angle
5.Macro
6.Attachment Rings
7.Fish Eye
8. Same subject as image #5 without macro lens
9.Macro
10. TeleZoom

Amazon Link.

I took the photos in Manual Mode with 20MP, Image stablisation On, Average Focus.
Always help, Always thank.

Very expensive for what it is, a quick search on Amazon or eBay and you will find much cheaper alternatives.

I built one of these DIY microscope stands that uses the lens from a cheap laser pointer strapped to the phone: Smartphone-to-digital-microscope-conversion/
I've gotten some spectacular images (and video) of microscopic subjects.

I tried them out not very good picture quality cheap glass=crap results. But for the price if you want to see for yourself go ahead.

I saw your link and $19 for something like that is very expensive, you can find similar lens accessories for a lot less.

When you post please include some full resolution examples of the shots you have taken with the lens attached and for comparison purposes perhaps the same shot without the lens.
