(A) is a diagram which a person is watching a sample through a magnifying glass lenses. It means that you have seen by the human eye, an image which has been enlarged by a magnifying glass lenses.
(B) is a figure obtained by photographing the sample on a smartphone L-eye. In order to demonstrate comparison, it is put upside down. It was photographed in the smartphone camera, an image which has been enlarged by a ball lens, and observe as an image. Smartphone camera is equivalent to the human eye of (A). Ball lens, smartphone cameras are smaller than the eye and magnifying glass lens (A), but the size of the CCD is also small, but it becomes significantly large it is used.
