Choose right close-up lens for the lens

Close-up lens is simple additional filter that screwed onto the front of the lens, it will almost not affect the imaging of the main lens in appropriate aperture, such as: XPRO photography treasure SUPER II generation of 258 close-up lens. If added the close-up lens, there will be a focus area, which can not achieve infinity focus. The furthest photographing distance of close-up lens (based on the distance from close-up lens to the object) equals to the focal length of the close-up lens.

For example, the focus distance of XPRO F258 close-up lens is 21-26cm, you can only photograph the insects in 21-26cm distance, if it is beyond the focus range of the close-up lens, you can not photograph clear insects. You should choose suitable close-up lens according to your own lens. It is not recommend to use close-up lens for the wide-angle lenses with main focal length of the main lenses under 50mm, while the focal length is under 300mm, it is best to use close-up lens.

The choice of the adapter ring and close-up lens

1 The chromatic aberration of single lens and uncoated low-end close-up lens and blurry images are not conducive to the performance of macro insect world. You can use a set of two optional achromatic multi-coated lenses for close-up lens.

2 This kind of close-up lens is generally divided into three calibers 58mm, 67mm, 77mm, other caliber of the lens and filters can be used through adapter ring. In general, we recommend that the adapter ring of the lens and that of the close-up lens should not be more than two blocks. However, when the close-up lens is used for medium telephoto lens, the viewing angle is relatively small, so you can use close-up lens of small caliber on the lens of larger caliber through adapter ring lens without affecting imaging, but the difference of the caliber of the close-up lens and the main lens should not be more than one block, or it may produce vignetting.

After phootgraphing, you can add online photo frames and photo effects online on the photo in post-processing.
