Just like your eyes , your point and shoot or camera phone will happily
use a magnifying glass. :g50:
Best with lots of light , but not direct sunlight. ( this was indoors, on my window sill)
I switched the camera on so that the lens extended, then carefully balanced lens on
magnifying glass and click.

Nice idea, look for a "Linen Glass" if you want to play with one of these.

Most cameras will get in close enough, but, it may then be necessary to use something like PAINT
in order to do the rest.

This is however a good tip, thank you.
