The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


iPhone macro focus



Daniel Forsythe put together a walkthrough that shows you how to disassemble your iPhone (original or 3G) and adjust the lens for taking close-up photography. The image above is from his Flickr account, demonstrating the camera focused at about 4 inches – perfect for taking project photos. You can adjust the lens to focus anywhere from infinity (the default) to less than an inch, but you’ll need to take apart your phone to adjust it. If you take a lot of close up photos of projects, notes, or bugs, now you can tweak your phone and find a setting that works well for your needs.
