    Default Close-Up Filters

    Hi All,

    Just bought myself a HOYA +3 Close-Up Filter. Can't afford a macro lens so thought that this is a good alternatives.

    Got home and spent the whole night trying to figure out why my viewfinder fogged out when I screwed it on my lens

    BTW, I'm using a prime 200mm f2.8.

    Any I idea if these does not work together? Please help.

    Thanks in advance,

    using closeup filter will reduce ur min. focusing distance as well as loose out infinity focus ...

    try to focus something abt 1 to 1.5 feet away ... u should be able to see something ...

    I can't seem to focus at any distance. I could see when I came very close to the subject. Simply put it, just like someone with perfect eye putting on prescription glasses.

    Please help.

    can lah ... only a narrow range of distance like 35cm to 40cm ... the DOF is very shallow ... try to focus on some object ... or use Manual focus and move ur lens to focus the object ...
