Thread: +10 closeup filter

  1. #1

    Question +10 closeup filter

    I'm looking to increase the macro power of my S1 IS. already have a +4 closeup filter but thinking of going for a +10 (if there's such thing as a +10 )
    Appreciate if anybody could enlighten me. is this locally available? price range (say for something like hoya?) is +10 too much?
    thx in advance.

    I think Hoya does have +10 closeup (according to MS) though Hoya never mention it in their website. Btw your S1 has 10x optical zoom, coupled with +4 should be good enough. I guess whether you need +10 or not depends on your subject. With +10, your working distance is about 10cm. Your choice.

    Sad thing about the S1-IS is there's no real macro mode, I'm using the same camera too. If I didn't remember wrongly, the closest is at wide-angle which is around 4cm.

    the problem of taking wide angle close up shots is you will capture many distracting things in the background.

    I have not use 10+ closeup before but I can see you will get many distortion at the corners.

    Yours is a telephoto lens, of course the min focus distance is further away
