Close up fil­ters

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

A close-up fil­ter is one of the sim­pler ways to adapt your lens for in­creased mag­ni­fi­ca­tion. It’s es­sen­tially a piece of glass which sim­ply screws onto the front of the lens. This adds an ex­tra layer of mag­ni­fi­ca­tion, although of­fer­ing more po­ten­tial for light to be lost on the way to the sen­sor, as thicker glass is added to pro­duce the de­sired ef­fect. The at­tach­ment process is far more straight­for­ward than with lens re­ver­sal and ex­ten­sion tubes, and sim­pler for begin­ners, but the im­age qual­ity isn’t quite the same.
