A few nights ago I went on eBay and plunked down $18 for a set of four close-up lenses. These are cheapies, guaranteed to be a little flaky on color convergence and sharpness. It’s a chance to play with macro photography.
Hey–it’s $18. I’ll take a chance.
I shots some test pics this afternoon and then tonight shot away at a US quarter. That’s the photo below. Click for a full size crop.
This lens set definitely has some shortcomings, but it looks like it will be a lot of fun when the bees are out and flying!
One thought on “Cheapie Close-Up Lens Set”
Yeah they are fun. I have a set of the cheap Opteka closeup lenses at +1, +2, +4, and 10x Macro.
No way I’m going to get that close to a stinging insect though!
