So I heard a rumor that you can increase the magnification on a iPhone4s with just a water drop. The curiosity got the better of me and I just had to try it! I wanted to try with my Curly Hair Tarantula but I was in a hurry so I just used my remote.

I was AMAZED with the result. I dabbed my finger in water and touched the little lense on the phone to add the droplet, then I quickly turned the phone around.

At first I battled to focus but realised that you have to get REAL close for it to focus. I would also suggest you placing your phone on something and using the headset as a remote trigger.

Then snap away. Here are the play shots I took, will def play more with it.

This is the closest I can get Normally where it still focuses fine.

Normal Focus

This is with the waterdrop! Amazing Result!

With Water Drop

Try it!
