Close-Up Series

The effect increases with the diopter number and the focal length of the lens. For shorter focal lengths in digital photography stronger close-up lenses are therefore recommended. The image scale describes the effect. A scale of 1 : 3 renders an object at a third of its original size on the film/sensor. Close-up and macro lenses are simple aids which are suitable in particular for three-dimensional objects (flowers) and pictorial photography, less for technical reproduction purposes. Sufficient stopping down increases the sharpness and the depth of field.

As clearly illustrated, the stronger the close-up lens, the closer you can get to the subject with the same distance setting and the larger the image you can obtain. A longer exposure time is not necessary. B+W close-up lenses can be combined, but for quality reasons and to prevent vignetting no more than two lenses should be mounted over each other. The values are simply added together.

Key Features:

  • Especially useful for simple close-ups
  • Fascinating shots of flowers, insects, and small objects
  • Suitable for analog and digital cameras
  • Low-cost, straightforward entry to close-up photography
