Hi,

Recently I come across Closeup filter that attached on the len to take very close pictures from Library book.

Can some pro here help to explain the diff between Closeup filter vs Closeup Lens?

And also is there any such filter sold in Singapore for A-mount??


Thanks:embrass:

Hi

You might find this clubsnap link useful

Macro and Closeup FAQ

Your close up lens i am assuming you are referring to dedicated macro lenses

There are dedicated macro lenses for sony alpha mount, 3rd party makers as well.
As for close up filter u need to look into the filter size and the thread size of your lens you are using. Althernatively if you already has an existing close up filter, you can use step up or step down rings if any mismatches with ur lens thread size
