DIY Cameraphone Macro Lens From A DVD Player

Since most cameraphones are just barely capable of producing decent photos anyways, it’s not surprising that their macro capabilities are far from amazing. But Flickr user cnflikt has found that by mounting the focusing lens from an old DVD player to a small piece of cardboard, and then placing it over the lens on their Sony Ericsson K800i, they were able to get some pretty great results when it came to macro photography. Not exactly the cheapest hack if you don’t already have an unwanted DVD player lying around, but the results do speak for themselves.
