While a far cry from a true macro lens, what can you expect for under $20. These filters tremendously boost the Nikon's 18-55 lens's macro capabilities.

The reason I only gave it 4 stars is beacuse the glass seems a bit splotchy. Perhaps a good cleaning would help. I'm also a bit disappointed in the "wallet" they came in. I was hoping for something a bit softer rather than nylon and nylon nets. But then again, what can you expect for the price?

I was a little skeptical about purchasing these filters because of some other reviews remarking on poor image quality and such. I am not having this problem. I think the problem is not with the filters but with the fact that you simply can't use f/1.8 and similarly low aperture settings. When you do use the lower f/ settings you do get soft images. The higher the magnification the larger the f/ has to be to get sharp images. You still get the nice DOF that you would using the lens at a lower f/ without the filter, so (IMO) you're not really sacrificing much in the way of image quality.

When I purchased them, I wasn't really sure what to expect. I'm sure this is only because I wasn't reading enough. But just in case I'm not the only one unclear about this, let me explain a little how these work. They don't turn your lens into a zoom lens. What I mean by this is that if you are standing in one spot with your bare lens and you can focus on something, when you apply the filter you will not get a closer focus while standing in that same spot. You physically have to get closer to the subject to get focus. The higher magnification you are using the closer you have to get. I would say that with the 10x filter you have to be somewhere around 4 inches or so away from the subject to obtain focus.

These filters are not going to be something you can use to get macro shots of insects and bees and such (unless your brave and want to get 4 inches away from a bee, which I'm not). You will, however, be able to get closer to your subject and still be able to lock focus. On a 50mm f/1.8 the min. focus distance is 18 inches. I love the 50mm lens but I do, from time to time, want to get just a touch closer than the lens allows. That is where these filters come in handy for me.

The Digital Concepts Close-Up Macro Set is certainly worth it's very reasonable price. The filters don't themselves magnify, but do allow lenses to achieve a reasonable level of focus at much shorter ranges than normal.

The +1 filter significantly cuts the minimum focal distance (perhaps by half?) while the +10 cuts it nearly nothing. As you move from +1 up through +10 the softness of the images does increase significantly. These filters will not replace a good macro lens, but they do give another option while shooting.

Not a perfect product, but these filters have certainly found a place in my camera bag.

If you don't have a dedicated macro lens, or something like a 70-300mm lens with a macro mode, this is an awfully tempting deal. And for less then $10, it really is a good deal. The quality of the glass is more than adequate, and they do exactly what they are intended. The only problem I encountered was that my lens' autofocus would generally not work with the +10 macro filter. However, if setting up macro shots, you should have no problem manually focusing by hand. The case the filters was shipped in was also not of great quality, and could see it scratching the glass if they had not been individually wrapped in plastic beforehand. This is a non-issue for me, as I have dedicated filter wallets, but for someone who will be using this to carry these around, use caution.

PROS:
+ Good quality glass filters
+ Great deal for macro photography

CONS:
- It's still not as good as a macro lens
- Included filter wallet is sub-standard

I have been using this filter set with a Nikon D3100 and the 18-55mm VR lens and absolutely love the results I am getting! No, these filters aren't the same quality as a dedicated macro lens (I've used the Nikon 105 Macro before), but for the price and portability of them they are very hard to beat. I have no issues recommending these to anyone!

(I tried the closup finters on m4/3 kit lens). The filters are more of a toy as they degrade the picture quality by a lot. +10 lens is only sharp in the very center, all filters display a lot of chromatic aberration. Using them is fun as it opens up possibilities, owever, if you are even slightly into macro-photography perhaps you should save the money for Raynox (or better) achromatic filters.

Great product for the price.

- They work well with my Canon nifty 50mm 1.8
- As other reviews said, the filters do not magnify, but rather they allow your camera to get closer to subjects
- Using the 10x filter on my 50mm, you will be able to capture fly's compound eyes

Unless defective, we really should not complain about this product at this price point. Used correctly, they will work great for you.

Don't waste your money on these lenses. I figured I'd give them a shot but am returning them tomorrow. Each of the 4 lenses has a defect in the glass itself. The defects are so bad (they appear to be bubbles and fuzzes stuck in the glass) that they completely ruin my pictures.
