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.

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:

And the biggest feature (to me at least) - Magnetic.

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!
