I was on holiday recently with family members generally less than half my age. I was astounded to be introduced to macro and wide angle 'strap on ' lenses to clip to your phone camera. Well I ordered a pair for less than £13.00 and in keeping with modern demands they were dutifully delivered next day a.m. delivery. I dashed out and took these with the macro, not up to SLR standards but I think you will agree not bad for a clip on phone lens. Unfortunately they don't improve the artistic temperament of the owner.
Well I am very slowly getting to grips with the technology of a mobile phone camera and a clip on lens, something I've never really done before thinking that the pictures from a phone would be passable at best. However now I have learnt a little, I am astounded at the quality of the pictures, I'm sure in the hands of someone who knows what they are doing the results would be even better. Possibly a very prudent £13.00 investment and I haven't even tried the wide angle lens yet. It could be very handy for impromptu field work when out walking or similar. This is the lens I bought www.amazon.co.uk/Universal-Mactrem-Wide-Macro-Smartphones/dp/B06XKY8X17/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1498914923&sr=8-13&keywords=Clip+on+camera+lens

stevebooth: I trust the ceremony was more successful where you are, out of the 30-40mm of rain the infallible Beeb promised, with possible dangerous levels of flood wate, I’ve had 3mm. A decent amount for a woodlice bath, but not enough to water much.
