Easy Macro rubber band iPhone lens

The Easy Macro is a very simple, highly effective, and widely compatible add-on macro lens for any iPhone and nearly all smartphones. It consists of a sturdy blue rubber band and a tiny macro lens embedded into that band. All you need to do is stretch the band over your iPhone/smartphone and then line up the macro lens with the lens of your iPhone. It’s as simple as that. Now, you will be able to get up close and personal with your iPhoneography!

I found that the Easy Macro will easily work with iPhones in all slim cases and will even work with many thicker cases, though you will likely get more distortion around the edges of your photos. Many shutterbugs might really like that feature.

The magnification of the Easy Macro is really spectacular considering it’s simply a camera lens mounted in a rubber band. You will have to get about an inch away from your subject for it to be in focus. So, keep in mind that you won’t be able to take regular snapshots of things any further away than that while the Easy Macro is in position in front of your iPhone lens. Also, keep in mind that, as with most iPhone lens accessories, the flash will be blocked; so make sure it’s turned off.

Considering the very reasonable price, I think this is a no-brainer purchase for anyone looking to jazz up their iPhone photography with some macro shots. Just remember Robert Capa once said, “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.”


Price: $15
