When I first got my Griffin Clarifi Macro lens for my iphone, I was pretty happy, but then I realized there is one down side. I keep the lens closed to protect the iphones lens, which is a great plus I did not think about. But I also don’t think about removing the lens when I’m taking a picture, and unless you are paying attention, you most likely will not notice the difference by just looking at the iphones screen.
So, what should we do here? Put a sensor in place to let us know its in macro? Make a little lens cap? Auto sense the distance to target, place a motor on the lens and move it out of the way automatically? … actually, that would be pretty cool.
No, the solution is a good old fasion one …. GET USED TO IT! I still love it though.
