okay- for $6 it is AMAZING

the depth of field is really small like less than a 1/2" so using only a hand (as opposed to a tripod) and shooting flowers in the wind results in a lot of missed shots.

that said, it is really really fun for capturing the stuff that you just cant on an iPhone because of the super wide lens they give it.

Macro sort of by J Solo, on Flickr

on this shot of the adenium, you can see how only the edge of the center is in focus but the outside of the petals are not...very shallow depth of field.

takes some adjusting

My friend (who I am currently hunting orchids with) has one and it works REALLY well. I am definitely considering getting one after seeing what his can do.

I recommend it. It is so cheap and inconspicuous, in a small baggie in my pocket, so easy to put on when I want a close up

For us nerds (or you scientists!) it matters lol!
