How to make a DIY macro lens for a mobile phone camera from old SLR lens



Having done a lot of macro photography on my SLR but not finding the time or motivation to lug all my SLR gear around, I have primarily shifted to using my phone for capturing macro videos. Here's a video that I made after playing around with some old SLR lenses I had lying around to try and come up with a macro lens for my mobile phone. In this video I show how to make a DIY macro lens for a mobile phone camera from old SLR lens. I have used the focus element from the back of an old manual focus, manual aperture lens to make the macro lens for the mobile lens.
