What is a Smartphone Microscope?
The Smartphone Microphone is a quality lens which slips over your existing smartphone camera and turn it into a microscope. It allows you to zoom up to 30x the capability of your smartphone. You can see skin, clothing and surfaces of any kind magnified in amazing detail. Get closer to the insect world by studying these tiny creatures in breathtaking clarity.

How do I use the Smartphone Microscope?
Simply clip over your smartphone camera lens and open your camera app to instantly multiply your zoom power. Your smartphone will automatically recognise the microscope and will switch to Macro (close-up) super-zoom lens. This allows you to view, photograph and film a massively magnified image. When you’ve done, simply slide the lens off and your camera will return to normal.
