Got a camera phone? Get a lens

Sure, camera phones these days are giving far better quality pictures than they have in the past, but you’ll be hard pressed to find a photographer who actually takes their camera phone pics seriously enough to want to implement different lenses. Nonetheless, according to Gizmodo’s technology news site, some Japanese company is now making conversion lenses for your mobile phone so you can take some “good” wide-angle shots of your new HDTV, pet hamster, or that potato chip that looks kind of like Jay Leno.

The conversion lenses are fundamentally universal, attaching to your phone with a small magnet. Make good use of that 1.0 or even 2.0 megapixel camera you got on your mobile phone, and pick up a telephoto, wide, or macro lens for 7000 yen, or about $57 USD each. Or… you can actually take pictures with a real camera instead.
