How-to: Turn Your Cellphone into a Microscope!

Being the enthusiast I am with shooting photos and making videos, I also enjoy taking it to further levels. Earlier we posted a super simple how-to tutorial (here) on adding the macro functionality to your cellphone (while keeping it low-budget). In this post, we inform you of how to turn your cellphone into a small portable microscope (while still keeping it low-budget).

  1. If you haven’t gone to Crabfu’s page who made this mod, go there.
  2. Find a low-budget (~10 Euros) microscope lens of your desire (either online or from a shop you know) that matches the specs Crabfu has mentioned (mainly it should fit to the cellphone lens or it’s case dimension).
  3. Wrap the cellphone case in a plastic bag.
  4. Put your cellphone in it.
  5. Glue the lens connection and very very carefully put it where the phone lens is supposed to be.
  6. Attach the lens to the connection.
  7. Done.

Enjoy using your portable microscope while helping people 🙂
