Microscope attachment for cell phone camera.

christie_sw_mo(Z6)October 13, 2010

I came across this video on Youtube and couldn't help but think while I was watching it that this would be cool for photographing butterflies and caterpillars up close. It was made using a "Cellscope" that fits onto a cell phone to turn the camera into a microscope. It can photograph blood cells.

The phone used for the video has a better camera than mine though. It's a Nokia N8 with a 12mp camera. It shows the Cellscope at the end of the video.

Here is a link that might be useful: Dot cellscope video

One of the links I found said it was available in the US for $199 but I checked a couple websites and didn't find it. Maybe it's under a different name or just not available yet. I thought that sounded like a pretty reasonable price for a new gadget.
