4-piece Close-Up Macro Lens Kit

- Included are +1, +2, +4 and +10 Close- Up Lenses.
High-Quality lenses are diopters for close up photography. They shorten the close focusing distance of the lens, this allows the lens to go closer to the subject and achieves a larger image scale. Lenses may be used individually or in combination for a greater effect.

Filter Kits included are:
3-piece Digital Multi-Coated, Professional High Definition Filter Kit
- Ultraviolet (UV) Filter: Absorbs ultraviolet rays which often cause hazy photographs.
- Circular Polarizer (CPL) Filter: Removes unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces (i.e. water, glass). Also saturates colors making them appear clearer and better contrasted. This is the perfect filter for increasing saturation and contrast with blue skies and white clouds.
Fluorescent (FL-D) Filter: Corrects green cast when using fluorescent lamps. This restores the natural color of shooting objects.

Don't forget to get the filter adapter ring. I have the SX40 so I need Canon part number FA-DC67A. Would have been nice to mention this is needed before I bought this. Also, I don't know where the great reviews are coming from about Butterfly Photo providing great service. My experience sending in an email request to the company for help is no response from them yet. It's not easy for me to call during their work hours so I'm not sure how easy it is to get support over the phone.

So My original review i was dissatisfied Because the telephoto lens proved to be useless. I was very happy to have butterflyphoto call me and tell me that they took out the telephoto lens and they were replacing it with the close up filters. So they sent me the close up filters, i just got them in themail today and I am VERY HAPPY with them. They work GREAT! Ive already tested them and everything. They come in +1 +2 +4 +10 so you can get super macro.. Its AMAZING. I love the fact that i can get really close without getting close. The other fav in the kit i love is the wide angle lens! It works like a charm! This kit is definitely a MUST for the sx30! It gives you all the essentials you need to work with to create that perfect shot. Oh and the filters are amazing as well. I use the UV one all the time!

All this for $40 is a steal!!! Buy it, You wont regret it!!

Don't waste your money on this set. The filters, lens, and hood were supposed to fit the Canon SX30IS but only go on if you force them, and even then they don't fit. The filters and wide angle lens are of a very poor quality. The Wide angle lens and polarizer filter totally blurred the image. Junk. Total total junk.

When I received the Lens Kit, I could not screw any part of it onto the Canon SX30IS. Big disappointment because it all looks useful and appropriate for the SX30. Fortunately, I looked at a negative review, AND, a comment to that by the seller rep (Butterfly Photo) which had a phone number. Called the rep, who suggested using more force to screw the UV filter onto the threads of the SX30, and then screw other things into that filter. Bottom line, it worked. It would be very difficult to try to change lenses using the SX30 threaded receptor directly. Once, you have the UV filter on, everything else screws on/off that filter easily.

It looks like a very good kit for the SX30, and at an excellent price point. If I change my mind, I'll update this review.

I had previously owned a Canon SX1 and bought an inexpensive adapter to use my 52mm filters, specifically my neutral density set; it worked well, so I thought I'd try this kit.
Delivery was typically fast and everything arrived in good shape. I was pleased with the wallet carrying cases for the filters and close-up lenses, and the wide angle lens in particular had some heft to it and came with its own case.

I attached the polarizing filter first; I know that attaching the UV filter first is recommended, but there is no need for a UV filter on a digital camera (they're insensitive to UV light) and I'd rather have the polarizing filter on because I take a lot of outdoor shots; and, of course, it's cheap protection for your main lens. It screwed in pretty easily and felt like a snug fit. Tested by rotating the circular ring- it works.

Not sure if I'll use the florescent filter; I believe adjusting the white balance in camera will achieve the same results.

The lens hood is hard plastic and screws on just like the filters. Once you screw it on with a couple of turns there is a knurled ring which is used to tighten it. Lens hoods are useful in blocking light from the side and preventing glare. Due to the SX-30's wide angle lens, vignetting occurs and you must zoom in a little to eliminate it. Note: from its widest setting of 24mm, the SX-30's lens actually retracts when you first start zooming in; early on, though (50mm?), it begins to travel out as you go through the zoom range.

As mentioned earlier I was initially impressed with the wide angle lens; its weight seemed to indicate quality, and it came with a nice, faux leather draw string bag and two lens caps. It attached to the SX-30 easily and I took some test shots.

I read the reviews and at first decided not to purchase due to the one review that said nothing worked, a few weeks later I looked at the reviews and the one bad one had changed, due to the fact that the seller made things right, for being an online company that was doing the right thing, so I purchased. I am satisified with all the lenses I have used, they work well and attach to the camera good. Good Buy for the money!!

So, I am a picky guy.
Did not like the fact that it is so hard to screw this things in and out the first time, and I am pretty sure that could be solved by butterfly, but well, nothing is perfect.
About the lenses, they are very cool. I like to make nice pictures, but I don't have an infinite budget to buy the best camera, that is why I bought the SX30 (had the SX20 before, which I gave to my dad, and canon knows what they are doing).
This lenses cover all the basic requirements that you might have for your pictures. They are good quality and best, they are very cheap (if you look it up, only the polarizer by itself is around 25 bucks).
I don't know if I will be using the macro to much, but I will definitely be using the wide angle.
Must say, that the wide angle and the polarizer don't work too well if you don't zoom in (we all know that in the wide angle you will see a circle in you image (which sometimes is cool) but in the polarizer, since it is a little bit thicker than the rest, well, you can see the black ends in the corners of your pics, so make sure to zoom in a little bit.
Butterfly recommends you to use the UV filter all the time and then use the other filters on top of it (they are scared of you braking your lens), but tough the first time it will be hard to screw the lens in, and it won't go all the way in, it will work good enough.
In general it is a good buy, not perfect (I already stated the problems) but it is really worth it. I hope this review helps you deciding (I know, I hate when everybody just says it is perfect, because I don't believe in such things)
