Default Wide/Macro Lens for the Evo

Some of you might already know about this, but I just read an article that talks about a set of macro/wide lens that's compatible with the Evo. From the picutrestaken with it, it looks pretty terrific.

Sample shots here: http://www.goodandevo.net/2010/06/re...tc-evo-4g.html

Can be purchased here: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.14953

Please do. I'd like to see what kind of photos can be taken with that wide angle lens, even if I have to hold it up while taking the shot.

i'm interested to see how your dealings with dealextreme go. i've never even heard of them
If you need help, try IRC #Cyanogenmod in freenode.net
Someone may be able to help you there. I will try, if I'm on.

They are good but shipping usually takes 3 weeks. I have a jewelers eyepiece that does the same thing as these macro lenses. The one I have is only 1.5x you can buy then at 10x and more. You can buy them for a penny on ebay:

Yeah. But they arent for photographic sessions. They tend to fall off with heavy use.

Dang, that sucks to hear. I was hoping it would be a strong enough magnet to stay at least somewhat firmly attached. I guess you can't expect too much for something that wasn't specifically designed for the Evo.

In any case, it's cool though!
