Nice first shots! I would make the photos a little more clear though.

Thanks! and it took me about 10 mins to assemble and cost was probably about $60 - $70, purchased laser diode and modules from ebay, and driver, heatsink, batteries, and host from survivallaserusa, also built a 2.5 watt since this post, that thing is wicked!

I just did that build a few times. I went with copper module/heatsink and driver pill though so it was a lil more spendy, But I like the heavier feel..
Oh and good luck on the cellphone pics.. im in the same boat where ill take like 20 pics and end up with two good ones
