  • Magnification Made Easy

    Magnification Made Easy

    We all love a good macro shot, but most of our toy cameras do not allow for in-focus close-ups. In the past, I have experimented with using a hand-held magnifying glass to obtain some close-ups with the LC-A+. However, the focal length was always estimated, and often wrong. I wanted a way to use a magnifying glass and always obtain an in-focus close-up despite using a camera that doesn't have true viewfinder.
