Wide Angle & Macro Lens Adapter – instantly improve the shooting flexibility of your DSLR camera

Wideanglemacrolens

Not everyone can afford a bag full of specialised lenses to go with their precious digital SLR camera, so this neat little Wide Angle & Macro Lens Adapter kit seems like a useful option. No, it’s not going to be as good as the real thing, but it’s sure going to be easier to carry around and a lot easier on the wallet. Priced from $50.00 depending on configuration.

 This high clarity .45x optic glass lens attaches to the front of your SLR lens, fitting twice as much into your image. No more lopped off arms or shoulders! Your range of view is double-fold. Just multiply your focal length by .45x. For example, an 18-55mm lens will now have the range of an unthinkable 8-25mm, giving your photos extra breathing room on all sides. Plus, the adapter converts into a macro lens for gorgeous, abstracted close-ups.

  • another more inexpensive and very effective way to get a macro lens is by getting a reversing ring

    it basically allows you to put your lens on backwards onto your DSLR
    the rings cost about 10$

    These have been around for a long, long time. I remember borrowing a russian one off a friend in 2001…

    These have been around for a while, i have one i got off ebay. i do like it but tend not to use it as much because they dont focus well around the outsides even with a very little wide angle. so just dont think your getting a pro lens for 50 bucks, just something you can have fun with.
