The band comes attached to a credit card sized piece of plastic, which is how you store it when you’re not using it. It fits right over the card, which then goes inside your wallet. This set up is far more convenient than any of the other iPhone macro lenses that I own, because I can take it out and slip it on in thirty seconds.

My last Snap Spot post was focused on the super handy Bobine stand and charger cable from Photojojo, and this week, I have yet another great iPhone accessory for you - the Easy-Macro Cell Lens Band.
If you take a lot of macro shots, you can also wear the band around your wrist for even quicker access.
Easy-Macro’s lens works well. It takes sharp, close up photos of objects, but there’s one small caveat - you have to get the iPhone and the lens within just a few centimeters of your target subject.
For example, when I took a photo of a flower, my phone needed to be right up in the petals in order to get a clear shot. It also takes a bit of experimentation to get the angle and the distance right, so this is a product that’s best for planned out shots rather than a spur of the moment snap of the spider that just ran by you.
Easy-Macro website, or from Photojojo. The band works with all iPhones, including the 4, 4S, and 5.
I also wanted to let you guys know that another product I reviewed, the Holga iPhone Case, is now available for the iPhone 5. With this case, you can use the wheel of filters to take an array of fun photos. Make sure to read my original review to see some examples, and if you’re interested, you can grab this for just $29.99 on the Holga Direct website.
