Thank you for your very kind words, Ram.
Yes, definitely, as you say: It needs a very close approach when using a smartphone for macro photography, and also a lot of patience to grab that slippery phone in front of you and direct the focus properly on the subject by touchscreen. Smartphone macro may work reasonably well on flowers and any other still subjects when there is no better camera at hand for the moment. But to see a butterfly accepting such a close approach procedure we have to be very lucky.
Also the always highly compressed jpg-data from an iPhone 6's 1/3" size sensor will deliver harsh images lacking subtle transitions. In most cases a smart phone experiment will end up in frustration for our applications - and the happy return to a good classical camera.
Smartphone cameras have been designed to be a helping hand for everyday purposes - and to flood the world with carelessly taken snapshots presented by facebook & co.
With best regards,
Peter
