hey will this work with my canon kit lens and my 50mm f1.8
I had a Macro lens. If I attach this filter on it, would I get into the subject more closer?.. Anyone here have tried it yet?
is this suitable for canon 200d
hey i have chep lens, canon 75-300 mm, can i use this filter for macro?
Hello, can i use a 52mm filter on a 49mm lens ? or it only goes on the exact same size?
Hi. Will these work with canon eos m200 15-45 mm lens ?
When I stack them does the order in which they're stacked matter? I would have assumed that you thread them on in numerical order 1, 2, 4, 10 but in my case 10 wont thread onto 4 but 4 will thread on to 10. Does that matter?
Can these lenses be used underwater
Hi sir, can it be put to any nikon lens, because I have nikkor 60mm macro.
hello, this can be used to make a telephoto lens more zoom in? or only for macro, and not for example shot the moon more near to me lol
HI Sir,, Will this Filter in any way increases the field of view of the lense or does the opposite? Please let me know...
what heaven if we joint all lens ?
thats wrong ????
What size filter should I buy if my camara is 58 mm license?

Hi which is better ? This or the the macro filter that come with altura photo wide angel converter ?
Hey great vid thanks
I have a nikon d3400, 18-55 what is the exact size I have to get from your site in Amazon??? Thanks in advance for your help
1. I have a Hoya UV filter on my 18-135 mm lens, can I attach this filter on top of that or do I have to remove the UV filter first? 2. Is it possible to combile 2 or more of these filter together ?
Thanks for sharing
I run a children's wildlife group and take photographs as we walk along so I don't get much chance to hang around for long at any one spot and fiddling around changing lenses is undesirable. These are a great boon for me and despite buying the cheapest ones I could find they have lasted me a few years without problem. I bought myself a very cheap generic led ring flash and perminantly keep the middle range close-up lens attached to it ready for deployment. It allows me to quickly detatch the whole thing when we move on and I am ready for group and landscape shots before my next macro opportunity. Recommended.
Thanks for the video
nice examples.... what would you recommend . close up filter or reverse ring for macro photography... thank you..
I can see the potential of Close-Up Filter especially if you'er doing insect with Nikon 70-300mm that would be the cat's meow alternative would be the nikon 200mm macro that cost $1,000 and I don't thik there's z mount macro lens available yet.
Magnifying filters are usually disappointing.
Extension tubes are better value - or buy a vintage macro/micro lens.
There are significantly better mag filters from Nikon, Canon Nisi etc...
have you tried a macro bellow?
As aprofessional photographer since 1969, I would ask WHY do you call these filters? They are supplementary lenses.
These Closeup Lens fiters have been given a bad rap! If you use them one at a time and stop them down you will get good results. I notice that on most of your shots were at F4, you need to start out at F8 or F16. Use a tripod, so shutter speed will not be a problem.
Nice video charles I went out with my +10 close up filter for the first time last month, never used it before, definitely had to focus stack the images and got some good results shooting some mushrooms. Never thought of putting the tripod centre column upside down, I should have done that it would have made it easier 👍
Nice vlog here, interesting content and it's a good review of the filters with good descriptions and examples. Feeling more natural too
Interesting review Charles. I have the 105mm Nikon f/2.8vr macro lens and the image quality is astounding. I bought it second hand on ebay and even so I wouldn't say it was cheap. Until I got my 70-200 it was my most telephoto lens so I found lots of uses for it besides macro. It's a nice focal length for portraits for instance.
However if someone told me they fancied trying out some macro without spending lots of money I'd say great, you don't need to spend any extra money. The best cheap tool is the crop tool in the editing software you already have. Most modern cameras produce image files way bigger than they need to be for the most common use - posting onto social media. The optimum image width for uploading to instagram is 1080 pixels. If you crop in to that width on most files you'll be amazed at how much 'magnification' you get.
My favourite one, the halo around the tiny mushroom is everything! ^_^ https://youtu.be/TPnlPaSsofc?t=368
Love the intro to this, so soothing!
Love this Vlog. Well put together and the information on macro lenses was really helpful.
Some good tips! (Plus you’re really coming along with the vlogging!)
Great shots again 👏
Great video Charles, great to see the results from these cheapo filters as I’d never heard of them before. I went to extension tubes before buying a dedicated macro lens. The only thing I think might have helped in your review, is to have had the no filter shot on the left of each filter shot so we could see the differences side by side as a constant frame of reference ;-) Great job thought! 👍
Enjoyed the video Charles 👍. I've never thought of setting my tripod upside down like that to take shots closer to the ground but it makes a lot of sense to enable photo stacking on macro shots
Most productive video on macro filters.Excellent info.TFS👍💐
This is fantastic. Just what I wanted to hear
What happens if you jumble up the stacking orders.1/2/3 or 3/2/1 or 2/3/1 etc ?
Thank you man
Thanks Mike. Just been given a set of Cokin close up filters for my Nikon. Was wondering what they were for. Try them out tomorrow
Mike couldn't you just use a longer focal length and zoom in more? Like a 70 mm lens?
Thanks for the great video. I bought some but can't focus at all, also not when I use MF. Do they not work with telephoto lenses (I've only have a 70-300 at the moment) or are the close up filters I bought just shitty quality (they were super cheap)? Thanks!
Thanks a lot for this video. I am not ready to use my new bought macro filters.
You just saved me time and money Mike. Exellent way to explain tings, and on a warm and smiling way to. Keep coming back to your channel after years. Dont you
ever stop what you are doing. The best from Denmark 🇩🇰
Cheap solution https://gurushots.com/photo/05af1e7459ad7831e1c1691530b48efb
I did the same with my Sony 50mm 1.8 OSS lens with +3 filter https://gurushots.com/photo/a06be726be58ecf02aebe6d5cf975f4a
Hi very good video
May I know if I need to use prime lens to maintain auto focus?
Will the sharpness degraded after adding filter?
And what brand do Use?
Yes can be very confusing! Thanks for the vid.
Nice and EASY Tutorial, great picture examples, many THANKS! 👊
If you remove top glass from the lens and attach all those filters then you get all the way to 0.1mm close,,,try with one old lens and see how it works
I've shared this with a friend whose daughter is keen on trying macro & I mentioned these filters would be the way to start, so tks!
What set are you using in this video?
Can you combine these with true macro lenses?
Hey Nick, I tried the same but I am not able to focus even with +10
Nice video lol thank you!
@Nick Schrader, great video ! But one thing that might make it harder to focus when stacking the close up lenses is that I noticed you mentioned you added them with increasing numbers. Rather than +2 , then + 4, I think it's supposed to be done with the largest number first. At least that's what I've read. Currently awaiting my close up filter in the mail to find out for myself, but have you tried this, or know if it's true?
I've noticed on some YouTube videos of bees; the bees are moving about in an unhealthy fashion and I've even seen some on flowers fall to the ground dead. Something in our environment is killing these bees ( particularly the honey bees )
Albert Einstein once said:
“If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live.”
You speak like Angel
Thank you for this beautiful video. I can’t wait to use my new filters and enjoy the little and magical details of life.
Good Job ;)
Good Introduction of video. Really people need to stop by and notice and appreciate these small Little things and their world. It makes every cell in your body to calm down.
great video... I was in a situation where I never knew anything about macro photography. I got into it because I wanted to focus on nature/wildlife and landscape photography. Once I learned about macro I was deeply intrigued but didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on macro lenses. So, found out about these lens filters and for a mere $13 , I have to say I am extremely impressed. I do find some of my shots are "foggy" but as you say in your video, I think I am just getting greedy and wanting to get too close. I find it harder with insects for some reason. My macro shots of plants/flowers turn out fine but insects are tough, not sure why. I honestly do love these filters. Another option is getting a reverse mounting ring ( I also have one) and locking your aperture, detaching lens and reverse mounting but I only do that indoors. I am worried about doing it outdoors as so much dust, dirt, pollen etc and get into the lens and cause issues..
What is your focal length?to cap
Great video! I've been having a hard time deciding if I wanted to invest in the 100mm macro but I think I might just try these out first.
Nice overview with pros and cons!
Excellent videography as always man
