    I too, bought that magnetized lens set from Amazon. I dont really advise it. They do work, however, the Macro lens is pretty bad. The focal point is way too narrow, to be expected with such a small lens. I do wish there were a elegant solution with a larger lens attachment. :(
    With the macro, you have to be quite close to the subject (only few cm) and there is massive focus falloff as you move to the edges.

    Just found this: Stuff from my brain or camera

    It looks pretty good. The lens is centered.

    IMHO there's no way to mod the camera grip to both have the lens centered and not destroy the hole of the grip. If we want to use the grip, we need to mod it heavily, and it may look too ugly, unless there are some magical ways to "move" the hole of the grip a few milimeters to the right.

    I think we should be fine with modding a 5$ back cover, as seen in the link above.
    The Sugru idea is brilliant however, sugru itself is expensive and a little difficult to mould in a way that the filter adapter is perfectly positioned. I'd be willing to pay $40 for a plastic case with a filter adapter readymade (not handmade with sugru of course).

    Sugru Hack (Credit "Stuff from my brain or camera"



    That brings us back to the beastgrip. So far the best method to get a centered lens without hacking/destroying something. It is a little pricey at $80 shipped but does allow attaching ext. accessories.

    Hey landcameras, nice work! For a bit of inspiration, check out the LensMate website. They make SLR lens adapters for non-SLR cameras. I have one for my Canon SX-10 IS and love it! They obviously don't have an adapter for a 1020 eight now, but I'm sure if you check out their adapters, it may help you.

    Thanks! I still need to test the focal distance between the SLR lens and the camera to make any adjustments needed to the length of the barrel on the exterior. Hopefully I can shave off some material and end up with a cheaper model to 3D print. Right now it's around $60 USD to print on Shapeways. Not too bad, but I'd like it to be cheaper.

    Hi TheTHM,
    I thought also about building my own CameraGrip, bcs i got a set of lens from my grandfather. It would be awsome if you can share your 3D-Model with us :)

    Hello Niko,

    I'll post the link on here after I'm able to test it out. Don't want you wasting your money if it doesn't work.

    The focus distance or FFD differs depending on the type of SLR lens you would like to use; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flange_focal_distance

    If you are going to use SLR lenses with the 1020 you may want to give this a read; http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...beastgrip.html

    Hey Guys,
    Just wanted to show you my little prototype for a bit of macro fun. My aim was to get is as simple and easy to use as possible.
    p1220153.jpg

    p1220154.jpg

    p1220157.jpg
    and here's another one but a bit blurred:
    p1220156.jpg
    It's still a prototype, but it's holding together and allows shooting. I really wanted something that I can apply on my 1020 when it's needed (fast and easy) and take it off when i'm not using it.

    Now some comparison shots I took:
    Without macro filters:
    wp_20140307_20_29_55_pro.jpg,
    wp_20140307_20_28_57_pro.jpg,
    And this one is with the "lossless" zoom but without the macro filter:
    wp_20140307_20_29_11_pro.jpg

    And now photos with the filter attached (some are with the lossless zoom, some are not. May be blurry but keep in mind that they were taken with not so strong artificial light):
    wp_20140307_20_26_03_pro.jpg, wp_20140307_20_26_15_pro.jpg, wp_20140307_20_26_53_pro.jpg, wp_20140307_20_27_08_pro.jpg

    When Sunday comes, I'm going to take it off for some nature outdoor shooting! I'll share my results with You after :)

    Thanks Crasstoe! That chart helps out tremendously.

    I'm already seeing that I will need to update the model and possibly create and additional adapter for the F-Mount lenses.

    Its a tricky thing, and there is a lot of variables dependant in lenses and the phone being used. E.g. My DOF adapter will work straight away with any 1020, but an iPhone requires minor adjustments, and different lenses other than M42 require even more. I really look forward to seeing what you can come up with, i found building an adapter yourself gives you a new insight into how photography works with a phones sensor and lenses, and gives you a new perspective.

    Tag! A lot of what I've been trying to accomplish with my lens seems to be getting closer and closer to reality.

    ...obviously, that's just a 1020 camera grip with a lens put in front of it to no actual effect, but this thread gives me hope that someday I'll be able to legitimately attach this!

    I've written a tutorial on my own setup (for Nokia808 and Lumia1020) here: Add filters to your Lumia 1020 (or Nokia 808)

    This allows to mount any filter, of course, like IR (720nm):

    or close-up filters (+17 here):
