Excerpt: I have a Nikkor 105mm macro, but was looking for a solution to allow bugs to fill up the entire sensor. This is it! It lets me get those other-worldly close-ups of bugs I've been wanting. It's a challenge to get an in-focus capture, but when you do it's awesome and addicting!
Excerpt: Do as per what the product said it will do. Construction seem to be durable. The only -ve point is one the universal adapter is screwed on, cannot make use of the front & back caps anymore. Maybe the maker would like to think of some alternative method of protecting the glasses with the adapter on.
Excerpt: I tried it with my Canon 100mm 2.8L so far and it worked really well. Not very easy to use at the beginning because of sluggish/slow focus but just a couple of tricks and patience did it eventually.
Excerpt: Forgot to add a photo to my previous review. This clips on the lens and is held in place by spring tension. With careful use it does not move or fall of. I didn't want to spend much on a macro lens for the occasioal macor shots I take and this is the perfect compromise.
Excerpt: Initial results very good. Improves close-up ability of Sony RX100M3, although limited by small camera zoom. Really impressive results on Canon A710is - also appears to eliminate the barrelling and purple fringing when just using camera macro.
Excerpt: If you're a macro photographer this is a must have. With the combination of a prime macro Lens and the dcr-250, you get shots otherwise impossible with a standard macro lense. I use it with the nikkor 105mm. Best buy for the serious macro shooter!
Excerpt: Some outer frame loss of detail. It's difficult to focus. Better to move the object closer or farther away until in focus vs the camera. Using a small aperture you can increase the sharpness. I found it to be a good addition to my gear bag. For the money it's great.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: It was easy to snap on and use right out of the box. Yes, what it does it a bit weird and focusing is tricky and done by moving the camera in and out (tripod is fairly essential). Depth of field is paper thin. But, it's an affordable way to get some nice macro images.
Pros: Convenient Size, Easy to attach, Lightweight, Works
Summary: I spend the majority of my time shooting macro shots. I had about reached the magnification limits of a 90m macro lens and series of tube extensions so I was looking for a way to increase magnification even more. The Raynox 250 added a whole new level.
