Close-up Lens

Would you like to explore fantastic worlds in miniature? Close-up lenses open up new motifs in an inexpensive way. Like reading glasses, close-up lenses move the focus range into the close-up zone. 

The effect increases with the diopter number and the focal length of the lens. For shorter focal lengths in digital photography stronger close-up lenses are therefore recommended. The image scale describes the effect. A scale of 1 : 3 renders an object at a third of its original size on the film/sensor. Close-up and macro lenses are simple aids which are suitable in particular for three-dimensional objects (flowers) and pictorial photography, less for technical reproduction purposes. Sufficient stopping down increases the sharpness and the depth of field. 

Close-up lens


With exceptional +10 diopters this close-up lens goes way beyond the usual. Its high fraction is ideal for digital photography with short focal length. In numbers, this means that the B+W close-up lens reaches macro level from a focal length of as little as 50 mm - with a scale of about 1:2. 


To enhance its depth of focus we recommend a stopping-down by three stops. However, if a graduated sharpness is part of the creative photo concept, it is also possible to work with maximum aperture.
