All taken on my Samsung Android, not good for photo's, the camera is much better for close ups, but its quick!

Thank you, but find closer in than that and they are blurred. Here is an example.

I have seen a lense to buy for tablet but not sure if they are any good?

That would be a macro lens, Lyn....worth the outlay if like taking close-ups.

07/11/2013 at 10:44

Ah! but you can't put a macro lens on an android phone David: (or can you?) - technology is moving so fast these days nothing would surprise me!. Remarkably good pics for a phone-cam Lyn.

Not sure, John....I'm not up to speed with phone technology either.

FAO of Lyn. Not a particularly fantasic pic, but it shows the depth of focus you can get with a close-up lens:

Its not a phone, just a tablet, maybe there are some reviews on the net, although, even when i take scene shots, the depth and colour is nowhere near as good as my camera. The advantage though is that you can take photo's at night, like the previous cloud formation i put on here.

I have seen some of your fantastic macro pictures David, perhaps a few on here would be nice?

Just a common old dog rose:

loving these.. thanks team techy

07/11/2013 at 14:59

I'm getting to the stage when I feel I may be duplicating pics now....please let me know if I do.

Anyway. hope you haven't already seen this Red Admiral:

Lyn.....love the shots. My friend has recently posted shots on faccebook taken with a macro lens on her iphone and they were fantastic so it may well be worth looking into reviews for the tablet lenses.

David......i don't think you have posted any pics twice 

07/11/2013 at 20:35

"David......i don't think you have posted any pics twice" 

Hope not, Nikki.....not posted any pics here taken with my new camera yet. I'll have to get out & about with it - when it stops raining.

07/11/2013 at 20:51

Nice to have caught up again here.

This one taken at Kew Gardens at the water-lily pond, still pic taken on Sony HD Camcorder HDR-7E in 2008

Another crisp, clear, in focus pic from you, John…..thank you.

My previous 2 shots of a dog rose & butterfly are just close-ups rather than (what I consider) macro.

This is a macro shot of a sunflower and what I consider attractive for its beautiful symmetrical shape & pattern.

Thank you for that, Nikki.

Johns flower there is beautiful, and David, I just love your macro images.

Dsvid, the  sunflower picture is mesmerising.  As you said, shape and pattern is perfect.  Pure relaxation to look at it.
