Hi;

I am really amazed by those macro photos posted at the macro/close upo galleries.


Could anyone recommend a good close up lens ( +4 )? What is the cost and its estimated focus distance when used with C750?

The Super macro mode built in on the cam is too close (3-7 cm.) and most insect would disappear before I could get close enough and focus.

I am using the Hoya +4. Apparently there will be distortions at the edges but I guess it will do for me now.

The cost is about $14 for a brand new one. Focus distance will be around 20-25 cm away.

So did u compare the distortion at less zoom vs full zoom vs super macro mode?

May be 1/2 zoom at +4 or full zoom at + 2 may be better combination?

The distortions are really quite hard to notice for using only one +4... but I got greedy and used 2... soooooo... its kinda obvious with 2 +4 stacked.

How to tell +4 or +6 on your photos in your " Humble Gallery using the Olympus C750uz "

Try doing an equote at MS color or CP. I was given that $110+ price by some other ppl so I can confirm it. :)

If I am not wrong, Canon 250D comes in 3 sizes right?

Is it hard to focus at full zoom (10x) with +4 close up filter?

Lens quality is very important. Hope 250D is over kill and there are cheaper lens that match C750 since its not DSLR class.

I was lucky that I was able to get one at $100 w/gst at mscolors a few months ago when I bought the dry cab from them too.

Can across this from another tread... The Hoya and Nikon 4T is about 1/2 of 250D's price. But Nikon 4T only +3. Is it enough to satisfy your crave for super macro? If not need to stack more $

Also; check out the hoya lens as well: http://www.camerastore.com/cat_003_hoya/003closeup.html

I am using the Hoya +4 already. That Hoya macro lens that close $45 is actually a +10. Hoya term this as a macro lens. I did a recent equote for it too. The price is $50.
