I find they work quite well. I have had macro lenses in which the subject takes up the sensor, a 1:1 ratio. These however allow for the subject to assault the sensor. Instead of life size these make for race of super giant monster sized. Ultra macro can be achieved with the small expenditure of fifteen bucks.
I find there is no outstanding vignetting or aberrations. At the highest magnifications there is an extremely shallow depth of field, so be sure you are prepared to work with that if you plan on working in those types of magnification.
Overall a great product, and with macro lenses starting at $500, I encourage you to sacrifice just a little of that macro lens fund to just give these a try and see if you can't go spend that extra money saved up on a hot date, camera geek.
These essentially work by knocking your focal distance way down, so you can move in much closer to your target. If you are trying to maintain some distance, then you'll have to use a long lens and stick to lower powers with the macro lenses. I don't yet have an adapter ring to use these on my Canon L 100mm - 400mm beast, but I am thinking that the combination will be just absolutely insane for serious macro work. I use lens reversal for extremely high power magnification in macro work, but what I like about these lenses is that it maintains full function of the lens for autofocus and aperture control, where lens reversal methods sacrifice all that. That said, this CANNOT beat lens reversal for sheer magnifying power. This will turn a ladybug into an easy National Geographic type beauty shot, leaf and bug and all, but it won't show you the dust on its wing covers like a lens reversal would. Still, for typical macro, this is great.
And the best thing of all? That case, wow... NICE. I wasn't expecting that cool little wallet-like nylon filter case so I was really impressed by that. I'd love to have a couple more for all my loose filters. :-)
Oh, one little thing. The threading seems a little bit too filddly to me, like they cut the threads and then painted them a bit too heavily. I'm sure it will work itself out fine with use, but the first uses need a little TLC.
The photos attached are all with my Sigma 18mm - 50mm lens set at 50mm, shooting in autofocus under my kitchen fluorescents. For all photos, I stacked all of the macros together.
My disappointment comes from the observation (see my posted pictures of an orange pepper) that the magnification is almost impossible to notice using the filters +1, +2, and +4. I started noticing some meaningful effects only after I applied the diopter +10. In fact, only after I screwed simultaneously the 4 filters I was able to produce a x4 magnification of the subject (as shown in the pictures posted).
The advertisement pictures that have been included which show an insect actually get larger and larger with each increase in diopter are in my opinion exaggerated and misleading. This doesn't make the product bad, just "not as advertised", but for 10 bucks I would still buy these in order to have something to play with until somebody offers me a job that can pay for the 500 dollars needed to buy "the real thing".
I ordered both at the same time and think the Opteka lens attachment was MUCH clearer on macro close ups. Plus you can use it as a wide angle. Granted, neither the Opteka or these Digital Concepts filter attachments will give you the same results as a $400 lens, so it's unfair to judge them too harshly based on that. But if value for money is your goal, just spend a little more.
This is pretty cool stuff. Filter is well made but heavy, especially if you add it up together (I tried it and worked without any issues). For the price you pay (one tenth of a Canon close-up lens), it is worth every penny.
Easy to use
Value for money
Decent magnification with good picture quality
I just uploaded two pictures I took. One without close-up filter and one with close-up filter. This one is a worth buy macro filter. I do recommend.
