I may not be the biggest tech geek in the world but as you all know I love taking photographs, whether it be with my DSLR or my iPhone. I’ve been looking at a couple of smart phone tech ideas with Paladone recently as they’ve sent me the Discovery Channel Smart Phone Telescope and Smart Phone Microscope sets to try out.
This is a review of two halves, as I haven’t got on so well with one of these items. But I’ll start with the Discovery Channel Smart Phone Microscope.
The microscope comes with 3 x AG batteries, full instructions are included and it’s aimed at anyone aged 8 years and over.
This has been a big hit here and is top of our Smart Phone Tech ideas with Paladone. The lens has a 30x zoom and will be great for my little bug hunter to get up close and personal with insects we find in the garden in warmer weather.
In the meantime I’ve been putting it to the test around the house to see if the magnification and clarity of image really is as good as the box says. You open the spring clamp on the microscope and fit it over the camera on your smart phone.
Turn your camera on and you will see the microscope surround in the first instance, zoom in your photo shot and it disappears.
For £9.99 I’m really pleased with the results of the Discovery Channel Smart Phone Microscope.
We’d been so impressed with this product, I had high hopes for the Discovery Channel Smart Phone Telescope.
