Absolutely Amazing Macro Abilities!
By Billy Quick on Feb 3, 2009 This factor is amazing. I had been searching at some $700 macro lenses, but because of i no more need one.
Because there's no glass among the lens and Sensor, the look quality isn't affected whatsoever. What you'll get are obvious, crisp macro images.
I experimented with this (begin to see the product pictures) and was shocked at just how good it labored. Yes, everything should be done by hand - exposure, Focus, ETC. But it is certainly worthwhile. You will get Not far from your subject - I had been no more than 1 inch away and the main focus was great.
Because of this, I saved $700 and now can take amazing pictures with my kit lens (18-55mm) and Nikon D40.
some suggestions:
For the greatest results and focus the complete nearest, zoom your lens out as wide because it goes. The images I've posted were taken at 18mm.
Use just as much light as you possibly can. I made use of an easy flexible desk lamp to light my subject, and still had shutter speeds of approximately 1/2 another.
Make use of a remote release - you have to reduce vibration whenever possible.
When focused VERY close, all of the dust in your lens and camera sensor is going to be visible within the photo. You are able to remove it fairly easily in Illustrator, but it is advisable to keep things as dust-free as you possibly can. 3 Comments 47 of 48 people found this useful.

After I bought this, there is limited information within the description, and so i got it thinking it is not much cash, and it may be came back whether it did not do what i wished it might. Stuff If only I had been within the description after i got it:
This adapter enables you to definitely mount a quick lens having a 52 mm filter thread backwards in your F mount camera.
This can be used entirely manual mode on dslr cameras.
This labored as intended with this f1.8 35mm lens.
This is less helpful with slow lenses, since there will not be sufficient light to locate focus. It labored, but not good enough to get any pictures using the 55-200 lense at 55, and didn't work well at all at 200 (to dark to determine focus).
On the 55-200 contact lens a minimum of, the zoom ring functions as a focus ring, which makes it to get perfect concentrate on a tripod with no macro mount or moving the tripod. A fast extending barrel zoom with an aperture ring might actually be better with this than a macro prime lens (apart from the the manual metering issue many cameras may have with this arrangement).
Old lenses may have convenient aperture rings, but modern lenses will need you to by hand adjust aperture against minor spring tension. At first I thought I would jam the aperture open with something (delicately), but apparently , you have to adjust aperture to obtain good shots handheld. It is because you'll need light to concentrate, and you need depth of field to get good macro shots of most stuff (the F1.8 35mm reversed and set to f1.8 does not have sufficient depth of field to place the very best and bottom from the mint mark on the gold coin in focus simultaneously). If the paragraph does not seem sensible for you, you're unlikely to be pleased with this item. Read more › Comment 32 of 32 people found this useful. Was this review useful for you?

Don't waste your hard earned money around the Nikon version!
By Adrian J. Reynolds on The month of january 13, 2010
Your investment reviews that claimed it had been impossible to make use of. This factor is straightforward and works perfectly.
Little else should be stated. You lock the lens adapter on our bodies of the camera exactly like you would any lens, then screw your actual lens to the another finish from the adapter, mind-first.
When done, just unscrew the lens and take away the adapter exactly like you would every other lens, or take away the lens and adapter as you unit, then unscrew it in the front from the lens.
Dead-simple. Don't spend $30 for that Nikon-branded one. it's a total waste of your time and effort and money.
My equipment (which tested to utilize this adapter):
Nikon D40
50mm F1.8 Nikkor (Prime)
18-55mm Nikkor (Standard lens)
55-200mm Nikkor
For those who have a D40 and have interest whatsoever in testing out Macro photography, feel free.
understand, this method won't be considered a perfect means to fix side-walking all macro lenses, but it'll work nicely before you save your valuable pennies up for any true macro lens. will prove to add pictures soon.4 Comments 23 of 23 people found this useful.

By Lucas Gattuso on The month of january 24, 2011
I simply got this. It really works well, but I'd difficulty removing it from the lens after i ended. if you purchase one, I would advise attahing it to the camera first (not the lens), and removing it from you only once you have unscrewed the lens.1 Comment 13 of 13 people found this useful.

By MattBRO on This summer 12, 2010
I've just lately found a fascination in photography but do not have lots of money to invest on costly lenses at this time. I'm really thinking about macro photography and a buddy recommended which i get one of these simple lens rings. For $13 it seemed like my kinda deal.
It has been a lot of fun to learn to use. I shoot having a Nikon D3000 and initially I had been while using ring with my 18-55 package lens. However I made use of it with my 50mm 1.8D lens and have had the ability to try taking some really amazing pictures! I'll publish one which I required of the pine cone. Bear in mind the pine cone involved 2 " tall and about 1 " at its largest.
I most certainly recommend this ring to anybody, amateur or pro, who would like to enter into macro photography. Comment 7 of seven people found this useful. Was this review useful for you?
