Buying A Loupe Lens

Loupe Lenses are cheap, the image quality will never be that great using this method so don't waste money on anything more expensive! I have purchased all of my lenses (I have purchased quite a few to give away to colleagues and pupils!) from sellers on eBay and have never had any issues, but take the usual care and caution when buying from unknown retailers!

The most recent seller I have used is: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-Pocket-LED-UV-Jewellers-Loupe-60x-Microscope-Glass-Jewellery-Magnifier-Z34-/290949265350?pt=UK_BOI_Medical_Lab_Equipment_Lab_Equipment_ET&hash=item43bded77c6


I have never paid more that £3 inc P&P for a lens!

Mounting The Lens

Mounting your Loupe Lens couldn't be easier. Just use a small amount of BluTack / WhiteTack around the eyepiece and carefully press this over the camera lens on your phone (just take care not to use too much and obscure the image passing into the camera lens). See the image below:
