These days smartphones are not only used for calling and internet access device. They are now replacing point and shoot cameras completely. You can never find a person with a point and shoot cameras anymore. Either they will use DSLR or use a phone to take photographs.

If we are using mobile phones as our travel companion why not make our photos looks more beautiful!!  Here comes the necessity of universal mobile phone camera lenses. The lenses are used according to your need. There are basically 4 types of camera lenses are popular among mobile phone photographers.

In this thread, we will see some samples of a macro lens. In this case, I am using my Mi 5 and a macro lens from Apexel brand. There are different types of macro lenses in the market. I have used more than dozen of them as I was searching for a best macro lens. You can check the difference of ordinary lens and Apexel 20x/10x macro lens (Link at the end of the thread). I finally ended my search, when bought the 20x macro lens from Apexel. Apexel is using high quality lens glasses due to which you will not get any lens distortion in the captured image. You can check the review and more samples by clicking the link given at the end of this thread. Currently, I am using 2 macro lens from Apexel a 20x macro lens and a 10x 25mm lens. I will be getting the fisheye lens soon from Apexel. I will review it as soon as it is delivered.

In this thread, I have used the 25mm macro lens. The images are taken during the morning time with cloudy weather at the time of rain, holding an umbrella . The images are edited using Instagram.
