Cell phones today have become so multi purpose, which makes shopping for a new one a very personal experience. Everyone has their own specific needs or wants when it comes to what they want their phones to have or do. What I was looking for in a new cell phone was much different than what my husband wanted. He really wanted an iphone to consolidate the features of his ipod touch, phone and perhaps even his Kindle. I have an ipad which I love, but wasn't sure I wanted to get a smaller version of that with a phone feature as well. I don't really care for touch screen keyboards (I like Qwerty keypads), but what I really wanted was a good camera. My old phone was decent, but I wanted something a little better this time. After playing with the iphone cameras in the store however I was sold on that aspect but I really had a hard time with the touch screen keyboard.
The compromise was to get the iphone 4S with Siri voice recognition, so I don't need to worry about typing. The phones were sold out so we had to order them and my hubby was anxiously awaiting their arrival. I was excited too since I had ordered some fun accessories for my iphone camera from Photojojo.
The first thing I ordered were these three neat lenses. I purchased a telephoto, a wide angle/macro lens and a fish eye lens. These lenses seem to be very sturdy made of light weight metal and connects to the phone via magnet. All 3 lenses cost around $50.00.

I also purchase these 3 fun plastic lenses. One lens is a wide angle lens, another is a starburst filter lens, and the third one is a kaleidoscope filter lens. Each connects to the camera with an adhesive gummy ring that is reusable. The lenses themselves are a lot of fun, but the gummy adhesive does not work as well as I had hoped. The lenses frequently fall off the camera before you even have a chance to snap the photo. However for the price ($5.00 each) they do produce some fun pictures even with the hassle.

And I really love these pictures I snapped with the starburst lens
If you have never been on Photojojo's website I highly recommend it. They always have great tips and tutorials for creating interesting pictures, and their store has really neat camera and camera themed goodies.
Well that's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come back soon.
