New toy in da haus, courtesy of Dee. =)
Theoretically, it works a little like Jelly Lens but the results are sooo much better. (Price different so quality also different lah, right? Only to be expected. Haha.) I also like that it isn't a stick-on lens. Instead, you attach it to the top of your iPhone with a fuss-free rubber band that fits perfectly.
Dee had been taking pictures of anything and everything under the sun with his own Easy-Macro™ long before he passed me mine. And I've been privy to the many pictures that have appeared on Path and Facebook, but had no lens of my own to play with. T_T So when he f-i-n-a-l-l-y came around to handing me my own Easy-Macro™, I was super excited and eager to start shooting away. =D
Only problem was...
Yup. I didn't know where to start!! Hahaha. Cos... well, I've not really been going out and there isn't really anything interesting or inspiring at home for me to shoot. So ended up taking his advice and shooting whatever jewellery I had on hand to test out my new toy. Haha.

And then I got bored and decided to look
for other less metallic stuff to capture.

Overall, I think Easy-Macro™ is awesome and easy to use. Only gripe I have is that my hands need to be really, really steady to ensure a good, clear shot if the ambient lighting isn't great. But I'm not sure if that's an iPhone problem or a general macro problem. Could be either one and not Easy-Macro™ for all I know. *shrugs* But that aside, I had fun playing around with it. Just gotta find more cool stuff to shoot like bugs or something. Haha.

NOTE TO INTERESTED PARTIES: As far as I know, Easy-Macro™ is not (yet?) available in Malaysia but you can get yours online at easy-macro.com =)
