Guys,

Not sure how this compares to some of the high zoom loupes
Attachment of image using the olloclip micro lens

It's not bad you can get really close but it states 10x but not sure if it's really 10

The edge on this night has a good shine not to far off from mirror (only my 5th knife with WE i'm sure I can use some more practice)

Some more images of the knife normal camrea and micro - iPhone

None of the cell phone cameras are that great for photography. Lenses are just too small. Add the magnifier and your depth of field just gets crushed. The screen size and DPI... well maybe not what you want when really trying to see what is happening at the edge.
I think the magnification is likely not really 10X. At least by looking at the one photo that you posted. You would be better off with a good 10X loupe.

If you want the gadget for it's other functionality, I guess the magnification feature is a nice additional feature to have though.

Thing is there is other lens to the kit like wideagnle and fisheye so if you getting it just to have for other things I think its a nice plus but your right at 80 bucks don't think its worth buying just for that
