Electronic magnifier

Good day. Beginning to get involved in numismatics and having grown three together with a coin and a magnifying glass a large amount of time (while discovering that one pupil is more than another like as chronic), I decided to return to them the natural charm by reworking the ultramodern phone under the magnifying glass. This device is called HTC beats audio (of course, China). Being on the brink of recycling, (the reason: the battery almost does not hold a charge, and it's hard to find it, and the phone is so-so), he did not resist the alteration. Before the photo session, the device wished to undergo the procedure of cleaning and disinfection. (if in two words, rubbed with alcohol). Here he is.

From the tools I needed:
Scissors, folding knife, tweezers (or a device for manipulating small objects that are impossible, uncomfortable, or undesirable or dangerous to take with unprotected hands) and dental spatula (very convenient to pick).

From the materials I needed (turned up under the arm):
Screws, as you can see roofing themselves, are usually found on the roof (neighbors are even better suited).
Electronic magnifier

Adhesive tape double-sided.

Let's start vandalism.What I liked about this phone is that the rework is minimal. All the manipulations carried out with her took less than thirty minutes, and the result surpassed all expectations, so to speak, but you can evaluate this yourself at the end of the article by looking at a few photos.
And so I open the battery cover.

I pick out the plastic protection of the camera lens with a knife, poorly glued and not with high-quality glue. Naturally observing the technique of proper security, so that my limbs can not be shredded, and I do not think it's worth damaging the polished surface of optics, so that you do not have to look at a continuous cloudy spot.

Next, I very gently tweezed and dental spatula slightly stretched and began to twist the lens with its body from the base of the camera, to my surprise, it was not fixed, as it usually happens, a drop of glue (or maybe it's not glue).

If it was glued, then I would have to disassemble the phone, in general, I was very lucky. After closing the lid and adjusting the focus, it is almost already almost ready magnifying apparatus.

But considering that it would not be entirely convenient to consider anything, holding it (sometimes shaking, it was a joke) I decided to install the phone on my legs.I also decided that I wouldn’t be too burdensome with these legs, and did not. With the help of double-sided tape, I glued the washers to the lid, which were easily torn out of the screws. It could have been different and with other washers, but as I already wrote, I wanted to quickly, and the screws came under the (hot) hand.

Adjusting the height (for viewing the coins) made additional laying of double-sided tape, in my case the optimal amount came out of three layers of double-sided tape for each puck, but adjusting the focus adjusted by twisting it with the “lens” itself. Well, a few photos that have already been made apparatus. Coin fifty kopecks St. Petersburg Mint (the picture was taken with a 5 megapixel digital camera).

It's the same but only through the finished (magnifier) ​​shot on the digicam.

The coin is ten kopecks from the Moscow Mint through a phone with a digital camera.

I didn’t do the backlight, but I think that with the right backlight the quality of the photos would be much better.The cover says that the camera phone is five megapixels (I do not believe it), by the way, it can be compared with a digital camera, it is also five megapixels.

For the test, I even decided to donate hair, hair pulled from my head, lost and again torn out mercilessly.

I noticed that when you photograph everything less, for example, the caliper scale (in the photo below), the same photo on the screen of the phone-magnifier looks different, the screen fits only two millimeters full width, in other words, the increase is much larger.

Although I did not pursue the maximum magnification (then the article would have been called a microscope from china). But I needed a simple, very quickly made apparatus, precisely for examining coins and, by visual comparison, sift out mediocre ones, and send questionable ones to a personal computer and examine them with various programs that can work with photos and are able to superimpose an image on each other.
And some more pictures. Gel pen paste with a fine tip.

I believe that such a magnifying glass will be very useful and interesting to many. It is better for children not to show, otherwise you risk being left without a tool (they will take it away, even the manufacturer’s name will not be asked) what happened to him (barely got out).
