Can’t afford a macro lens? Here are 3 different solutions for under $20 each!
Reverse Macro Adapter on Amazon: http://geni.us/68enz
Close Up Filters on Amazon: http://geni.us/LAQA4
Macro Extension Tubes on Amazon: http://geni.us/7vlM9G
1. Reverse Macro Adapter
Simply purchase the adapter with the mount you want (EF, MFT etc) and the thread size of your lens.
Doesn’t take up much room
Easy to use
Exposes the rear element of your lens to potential damage
Lose light due to smaller opening at rear of lens. This might not effect all lenses.
2. Close Up Filters
You can purchase these individually or as a kit of 4 filters.
They come in several different filter sizes to fit your lens.
Here is the exact kit I used on Amazon:
Very easy to use
Can be used for extreme macro or for getting a few inches/feet closer to your subject
Doesn’t add much to your lens
You don’t have to remove your lens to use
Lower quality images compared to other options
3. Macro Extension Tubes
Choose a mount (EF, MFT etc) and choose between dummy (no electronics) or smart (little pins for auto focus and aperture control)
Here is the exact model I used on Amazon: http://geni.us/orHyv
And here is the electronic EF version I mentioned on Amazon: http://geni.us/qJuo4
Best image quality since there is no additional glass
Customizable strengths be adding/removing middle treaded sections.
Time consuming setup
