Many developing countries, resource poor organizations and universities does not possess sophisticated microscope due to non-affordable price or lack of trained personnel to handle the equipment. Therefore, a simple photographing of microorganism has been developed using smart phone camera. The study was conducted to photograph the plant pathogens using inbuilt smart phone cameras. The method has been tested against 18 microorganisms of which, 15 are fungal, three bacteria, pollen grains of paddy and maize for their fertility. The images quality captured with smartphone camera were, being analogous to expensive camera designed for the microscope. Further, live video of yeast cells was also recorded using smart phone camera. We believe that this technology can be an inexpensive, easy and quick to learn for light microscopy in plant pathology for resource poor agriculture R&D institutions, research scholars and academic students for their thesis purpose.
