Your Smartphone’s Camera is a Magnifying Glass!

Here’s another brilliant use for the camera in your smartphone:

Use it as a magnifying glass!

Let’s face it, few of us are getting any younger, and yet we are getting more interested in reading the fine print on things. Things such as labeling on products and lists of ingredients, or even just looking closely at something in the house.

Wouldn’t a magnifying glass be nice?

Well, next time you need to look more closely at something,
whip out your smartphone, switch on the camera, and
use the camera’s zoom feature to magnify the view.
(Tip: brace your hands or elbows against something to hold the view steady.)

Alternatively,  take a photo, then view the photo and zoom into the thing you are trying to get a better look at.
