I've done this before simply by taking two ziplock/sandwich bags, one inside the other. I take both bags, inflate them slightly by blowing into them, seal them tightly, then gently push on them to make sure they seal correctly. I put my phone (in my case my tablet, yes I know) in the first one, suck out as much air as I can get, seal it (very well!), then ...

In a pinch you can use socks and a rubber band: Get four pairs of socks that have been "folded" the way you fold socks. (I'm pretty sure everybody folds socks the same way, but just in case, I'm talking about folding them like this.) Arrange the pairs of socks in a 2x2 square, aligned like cans of beer in a 6-pack. Then pull a rubber band around them so ...

You could use see-through plastic, perhaps bags. Seal with multiple folds. You can test your solution with something similarly shaped but less vulnerable to water. Test in similar conditions, including depth. Once it is working, if you are still concerned, you could make another one, and seal the first one in it.

You can actually flip the lens around and use it as a macro lens that way. Since it's not going to be connected to the camera body, you're obviously going to lose the ability to zoom, and you'll have to focus by moving the camera to and from the object, but it actually works quite well once you get the hang of it. The only thing I've found that's a pain is ...

Basically what you need is a small lens to magnify your existing camera lens to take some close up macro. Then hold the lens over your camera lens and viola. This is what you need: Extract small lens from old DVD player/burner, a disposable camera or just take apart a cheap laser pointer. Mount your lens either by using some duct tape and Blu-Tack or put ...

If they are gelatin-emulsion based, as used in traditional photography (or some coated ink-jet papers), hold the back side of the pack over a steaming kettle and let the steam slowly loosen the rear-most photo, one at a time. Just set them aside to dry separately afterwards. N.B. Ink jet photos might 'run' in water. Test this on one photo to see if it ...

To do this yourself, you'll need some equipment whether you make or borrow it. You'll need a swivel chair to sit on, a means of holding your "camera" pointed at you as a tripod does, and a way to trip the shutter button of your "camera" to capture the images from eye-level and from above. Your head and shoulders should practically fill the frame. You'll ...

You can try to put the phone inside a non-lubricated condom. You should search for one which is made of more transparent material. Put the condom over the phone and tie the end, put some glue on the tie and tie it again. You can add another condom for reliability, but it will blur the images more.

You can easily create a waterproof case for your Camera (Digital Camera, Phone Camera, everything except for DSLR witch you did not mention you had so I am making an assumption. Based on my assumption, One common method of waterproof DIY is to use a food preserver (Vacuum's the air out then seals it.) This method will work with your camera, phone, anything ...

Throwing personal items away is not a thing we can do easily as there are memories involved. With these memories there also is a piece of our own life we may want to keep attached. Exactly this approach is one thing we can use to help u. The question to ask for each item would then be: Do I have a memory with this item? The items were kept by you ...

Another option would be to use a lens turned around - with the lens mount in front and holding the camera body to the front of the lens. It's more finicky, but there are also adapters for that, which are very inexpensive: http://tinyurl.com/j2jxgyq.

This remains on the 'unanswered' list so I'll answer it in order to change that. As Terry says. The answer is to spray a very small amount of WD40 down one edge.

Yes, it is quite possible. Just use any photo cropper and make its dimension in accordance with the advised ones.

That's super simple. There are tons of photo croppers, passport photo generators etc. Here is a random visa photo generator that looks decent.

The bottle tripod won´t work for a cell phone, but it inspired me. Haven´t tried it, so no guarantee there, but it might work: Take two pairs of pliers (with rubber applied to the handles, if you have) or two clothspins. Clamp each of them into a bottle and put the bottles side by side. Use a table, chair, stool, footstool, cardboard box or a combination to ...

You can buy "inexpensive" extension tubes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extension_tube) (for the price, ymmv... the ones corresponding to your camera's make will be more expensive than generic ones, but will also allow the electronics to pass through, which is actually not that useful as the focusing will likely be impossible using auto-focus, and you'll ...
