The genre of macro photography is my favourite. It forces you to slow down and be attentive to photo opportunities within the normal everyday scene.


Capturing sharp, close up photography on your iPhone or Android smartphone can also be serious business for an entomologist recording insects and primary producers sharing details of pests and plant disease. Other Industries can also benefit from close up macro photography on the smartphone are: forensic, clinical, dental and medical. Even small business owners showcasing their produced goods, including jewellery and manufactures of small components and parts.


The lens includes a high quality clamp system. It can attach this lenses to almost any smartphone and tablet! Struman Optics also have a backing plate for selected iPhone and Samsung models to ensure a quick a hassle free lens alignment.

Other features:

  • Lens screws into a high-tensile strength clamp to fit almost any smartphone
  • Recessed lens to minimise the chance of any accidental scratch
  • Slim base plates available for iPhone and Samsung smartphone
  • Detailed instructions and a cleaning cloth also included
  • Lens has a front and rear cap
  • No need to buy another lens when you upgrade phones

The universal clamp may be fitted over a phone cover. Thick covers will introduce vignetting (black corners). Simply zoom in a little or crop the image to remove the outer corners of the image.

If you have an iPhone or Samsung smartphone – then I recommend purchasing the optional back plate to perfectly align the lens.
