Review of Griffin Macro lens for the iphone camera … sweeet

Finally, my case arrived.  And so as promised, I did a few experiments… First though, the case itself.

It’s a nice case, a bit too smooth for me which makes me fear I will drop it at some point.  I may place a grip sticker on it. The case comes in two pieces, so install is easy.  Griffin also included a protection screen and a cleaning cloth.  Nice.  Now, on to the images..

When I first started shooting and looking at the images on the iphone, I was disappointed.  It really did not seem to make a difference.  Then I downloaded the images using TouchCopy. Wow, it really did make a difference.  One of the reasons I got this case was because I like to take pics of bottles of wine I like, but I can never get a good shot.  As you can see, the lens made a huge difference, a difference I could not discern on the iphone screen. The main advantage of this lens is for text however, and again, promise delivered. What I would really love to see next is the ability to swap lenses in and out.  I have a feeling we may see this for other phones very soon.

This is pretty good. But then I thought, I have SP Photo lite on here, I wonder what I can do with it.
