Works fine, but I would go for the DCR-250 for extra magnification
17 June 2014
Summary: My 18-55mm zoom doesn't focus close enough so I bought this to get closer, and it does help, but for real macro work on a budget I think the DCR-250 would be better. I need to set the zoom to 55mm to really get close.
Summary: Product was in new condition and came in one day as stated it would be. I haven't had a chance to use it much yet because I am more into shooting insects in macro and right now it is too early for insects to be out in my part of the country. I will say that it does deliver very clear images and I think it will be a great asset to my photography.
Summary: I bought the 150 instead of the 250 after reading reviews that the 250 was hard to focus. I'm glad I picked this one, because it focuses easily, and gets you very close. On my canon SX40hs, it works best at full zoom or near full zoom. Don't buy for a DSLR unless you have a zoom lens to snap it on. I use it with my Tamron 70-300 @ 300 macro, and the close ups are unbelievable. Image quality is excellent.
Summary: I'm somewhat disappointed because I've not been able to use the snap on lens; what the info didn't say is that I would need some kind of an adapter to connect the lens with my Sony NEX6 camera.........at this point, I have the lens, but cannot use it.........
Summary: A really good and inexpensive way to explore macro. Image results are excellent, but no better than the lens it is attached to. Saved me a lot of money because it showed me that it isn't macro that I like taking, but close focus. I take most of my photos outdoors, and (1) you have to get really close to do true macro, and many creatures will not let you do this and (2) the slightest breeze will throw the subject our of focus.
Summary: I was able to install on the G15 without reading documentation. Big point there. Nice close ups but the rig to clip the lens to the camera is pretty bulky. I'll get over it. I use the plastic box to store filters and anything else that I need to have on hand. It's a keeper.
