Summary: This product works great. No messing around it just clips onto your lens. I bought this product mostly for the cost, since my close up shots were almost there I just needed a little more. this product was better than anticipated.
Excerpt: To be honest I didn't expect this product to be this good. I'm a crime scene photography student and needed a macro lens and after a month of researching about different lenses, I found this filter converter and decided to give it a try, it is super cheap considering the lenses and some extension tubes, so I bought it. I bought it a month ago and I'm love with it, it's great and definitely eliminates the need to go buy a macro lens.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use these lenses with a Fuji HS20 camera currently (and I've also used them with a Panasonic FZ28 and an Olympus SP570UZ). The lens mount is a unique spring-loaded design that fits INSIDE the lens housing or the filter adapters used for specific cameras (such as the SP570's CLA-10 Lens Adapter Tube). Some have said that the DCR-x50's are flimsily constructed - I do not find them so. The plastic housing is very strong and has survived a few drops on my part.
Excerpt: Wonderful pocket item for macro when you least expect to need it. Has produced real keepers in the field when no macro lens was in my kit. I was impressed with the overall quality of the shots edge to edge. Really a great addition to any outdoor kit. My only gripe is its made for 52mm-67mm? Whats up with that, with all the 49mm lenses out there? It will actually fit the 49mm but you may have to bend a tab a little to do so. Well worth it.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast and easy install, Fits most lenses, Lightweight, Macro always at hand
Excerpt: It is very easy to us it - gust snap it on the existing lens ant Yes! I ask for opinion on Pentax forums if I can us it with my lens. I put in on the front on Pentax 18-250mm lens and it works from 200 to 250mm good. For sure you will need a tripod and good light. You my need a lighting ring as well. I magnified a woman's watch to be viewed on the monitor 8" big!
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Easy to use, Fit on wide renge 52-67mm, Lightweight
Excerpt: This is a really nice add-on lens. I use it with various lenses on my Pentax K-x and with an adapter on my Canon S90. Easier to work with than the DCR-250, as it has a greater working distance. Of course that means less magnification, but the trade-off is worth it for me.
