What camera do you all use? Are there attachments I can get for my phone that are fairly priced?
Panasonic G85 with Pana Leica 45mm macro lens, external flash.
Then photos are tweaked in ACDSee
I have a Blitzwolf 15x macro lens that works quiet well with Pixel 2XL phone, but the focus distance is like 1-2 inches, so you have to get very close.
Works better with a phone with 2-3x optical zoom. which my phone does not have, so if i zoom in I loose sharpness
The magnification is there, if your phone has 2-3x optical zoom, but you need a lot of light to make it look good indoors
With a phone with 2-3x optical zoom, better to get a 10x macro lens for greater focus distance.
So some LED lights are needed as well. Some of those inexpensive video LED light arrays works well
With a phone you can't adjust the aperture of the lens, so your stuck with the shallow of depth of field.
If you invest in a tripod mount for the phone, and attach one of these LED lights on it, or on a stand, you can get decent results
My phone with the Blitzwolf clip on macro lens, and then tweaked in ACDSee
Pheidole antipodum queen is 15mm, and the smaller workers are 2mm.
Slight crop so slightly zoomed in, but unless you have optical zoom on your phone not worth zooming in.
