    Hmm...
    What is the filter thread of your lenses? The prices varies for different thread size..

    I got my 58mm, Hoya +4 at about $30 (can't remember price).
    Or get from Dimage (from Mass Sales) here.

    But Dimage is out of town, so wait till he comes back.

    Sorry, I'm not a Canon user, not so sure.
    But if I'm not wrong, the filter thread (diameter) of the lens front should be 55mm.

    Btw, I noticed that at shops, 55mm filters are slightly more ex than 58mm (which I'm using).
    I don't know why..

    Probably its all manufactured in 58mm and to cater to those 55, they have to cut it again from the 58's.

    Think so......

    very true. Despite the maginification, using the DCR 250 on a 55-250mm lens would have obvious vignettes, which can be cropped off but offset the compositions.


    I find the DCR 250 easier to use attached to my Canon Powershot S5 IS but you have to compromise with the demerits like noise on higher ISO and whatnots.

    I have some examples which you can relate too , since im using the 450D.
    You can compare which yields the best results and what suits what you wanna achieve in macrography.

    Canon EOS 450D + kit lens with Raynox DCR 250




    Canon EOS 450D + 55-250mm with Raynox DCR 250







    Btw now i rarely use the raynox cause the 55-250mm lens can give great "macro" shots too.

    Bro,

    You do not seem to have any problem with those shots....... All so sharp and nice...

    So whats your take on the DCR150 coupled with DCR250? Thinking of getting it as a set. I will also take your suggestion on the macro on 55-250mm lens.....

    Cheers!

    hi.. planning to get tis CM2000A together with my 50mm f/1.8 II.. so is it difficult to focus on the object and must really get hold of the lighting from the pop-up flash? i'm still a newbie wanting to try my hands on macro..

    Ok... That was also the first lens that i tried the CM 2000A on. Apprently the focusing is not too bad but you would need flash depending on environment. But you have to be very close to subject regardless on lens. OF course, this is based on my personal experience as i have not tried them out doors yet or on any insects.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers!

    I also think the same but since he ask, it's either he do not know that the cover comes along with the lens or he meant something else mah!

    As for the having the same equiptment portion, haizz means I can't try to get close to you cause no lens to borrow haha " just joking "

    So what's the next lens you consider getting??

    Canon 500D 18~55mm kit1 lens with Raynox DCR-250 (TS spells Raynox incorrectly)

    Set focal length to 55mm and DCR-250 lens is "clipped" on the front of kit lens
    Use the center AF point
    manual focus by moving camera body (hence my arms & body) front and back
    Use build-in flash for fill flash but with a DIY diffuser.

    Two macro shots photos (hand held) I have posted here in CS:
    http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=590845 -- post #12

    http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=595367

    The challenge for me is to get the focus right given the small distance between subject and also hand held. My initial shots tends to have focus on certain point sharp but overall are OOF.

    For my next shooting, I wll try out a higher aperture number (as suggested) to get better DOF and focus as well.

    Overall, I am happy with the performance of the Raynox DCR-250.

    Hi,

    I am using Tamron 90mm. Which would be more suitable and easier to use?

    DCR150 or DCR250?
    I love photography but my photos suck!
