    Default Raynox DCR-250

    does this super macro converter converts any lens into a macro lens i.e. a 70-300mm lens becomes a macro 70-300mm lens etc?

    Thanks for the link.

    Hijacking TS's thread.

    Would like to know how does it work to achieve macro. Reduce focusing distance or pure magnifying?

    Appreciate if CSers can share their experiences.

    By reducing focusing distance. The focusing distance is more or less fixed the more you zoom in you get more magnification ratio.

    The universal snap on adaptor fits 52mm to 67mm. So if your lens is anything between, there's no need to purchase any additional adaptor or extension tube.
