Thread: Filter and Lens

    Default Filter and Lens

    Hi all,

    Alan photoshop is selling a third party teleconverter and macro lens, 2 in one. Is anyone using it? Is there a difference in using a third party product compared to canon original teleconverter? They're selling macro lens and closeup filter. Are these two the same? What's the difference between these two? The 2 in one looks attractive. Hope someone can give me some advise. Thanks

    It's selling at about $85. I just told him I'm using Canon. Not sure if it's compatible with Nikon though.

    Default vitacon 0.45X convertor

    Are you refering to the above? wide angle semi fish eye?
    The corners tend to get blurred..else its not a bad work around fish eye effect...

    Example




    Hope it helps...

    I'm looking for teleconverter and macro filter. Hmm....is there much difference between a lens and filter? Any good recommendation for buying a teleconverter and macro filter/lens? Any advise on third party products? It's much cheaper, but I'm not sure if it's compatible wif my camera.

    As long the mounting size of the tc and macro filter matches your camera adaptar thread size, it should be compatible. The problem is quality of the TC and whether it will cause vignetting at full zoom when used with the camera.
