Lens from Toy-camera

Lelegance Lens(1)8-001

——- (Photo above :  Left = the edge of the lens has been cut to put a LED illumination.)

On the market, there are many adapter lenses for a Smart-phone or Tablet camera

to take wide-angle or tele-photo picture.  And many people might have

experimented to put magnifier glass or even the interchangeable lens of a SLR on

front of a Smart-phone camera.  = Yes, the lens placed on front, affect the image.

Lelegance Lens(2)10-001

——– (Photo above Left = With additional lens, small letters on a receipt

——– was magnified = looks very sharp.)

Though, in most of the case, any lens put on front, functioning like a close-up lens.

And only the concave lens (such as short-eye-sighted specks lens kind) could make

the image smaller = wide-angle effect but may not give you any sharp image.  

Yet still, they works well like as a close-up lens, even like a microscope.

The photos here shows the effect of a small lens put on the Tablet (Nexus 7).

Lelegance Lens(3)9-001

The very lens came from a kind of toy-camera.

(Lens and the Image censer looks same to the £30  Security camera.  😀 )

Still, this lens can project the outside image to the 4x3mm size censor.

It’s mean, use this lens in reverse, the lens can pick up the image of 4x3mm

and projects it to the land-scape size. 

Lelegance Lens(4)A09A4798

So, I mounted this lens on the top of  18cm  spray can,  same way as I did before.

Lelegance Lens(5)11-001

——– (Photo here = Bird’s feather  x40  magnification)

Apparently, the lens got  6mm or so focal length and 180mm extension  (together

with camera’s 44mm flange-back) it can give  whopping  x40  magnification.

Lelegance Lens(6)24-001

Lelegance Lens(7)23-001

——– (Photo here = Butterfly’s wing again —–  x40  magnification)

(Though, I wouldn’t say, with such magnification, taking photo is easy at all.  

= image in the view finder is very dark and the depth of field is extremely shallow

= with slight movement, the image vanishes.)    😀  

—– Coincidently,  I found a collection of Butterfly wing’s photos.  It must be the

result of months, if not years of work (together with a lots of digital manipulation)

= still pretty impressive.

    You make the most fascinating adaptations, Yoshizen.

      Thank you Karen. I guess, the fancy part is, they are too blatantly straight-forward hence nobody dare to do it. 😀

      Unlike its sound, actually it is very straight forward practice = just put together. 🙂
      Mix and put proper stuffing and roast a chicken may be more complicated.
