Im a bit old school, I have a handheld 10x that works fine for trich viewing. Not sure about the ones that connect to your phone camera, perhaps turn off auto focus on the camera settings? I know that if I turn the auto focus off on my Olympus OMD the macro is much easier to work with.

I had one of those for my old phone, didn't have lights though.


I also found it had to touch the plant, but it was because the lenses was slightly recessed.


I then used the phone zoom to find the sweet spot.


With practise it got easier.


Pics were the hardest thing, you see it great on screen, but when you squeeze the photo button it moves the camera ever so slightly and you end up with shit, blurry pics...
