For all you budding EVO 4G owning photographers out there, don’t you wish HTC included a macro setting on the EVO’s camera? Well fret not, as there are macro lens attachments available that produce quality shots and at a good price too.
XDA forum members started up a discussion thread to find a good performing macro lens, at a reasonable price, and they found one!
At the bargain price of USD10, the lens attaches to your EVO via a choice of magnetic rings that fit comfortably around the lens, ensuring there is no chance of scratching when laying your device flat against a table.
Members have reported that the quality of the camera increases drastically – and not just for the macro shots. An example of such an improved shot is that in the thumbnail (courtesy of XDA forum member ricoo25).
Concerns expressed regarding any negative magnetic effects on the device components including permanent distortion of the compass have been unfounded as yet with several hours use, although it doesn’t appear that anyone has tested the compass whilst using the lens attachment.
In fact, reports from members state that the magnetic attachment can be shaken off if you were to move your device in any sudden motion.
