Product Highlights
  • Decrease Minimum Focus Distance
  • +4 Diopter Lens
  • Rugged Black Brass Filter Ring
  • Single Anti-Reflection Coating
  • High-Quality Schott Glass

The B+W 77mm Close-up +4 Lens (NL4) is a close-up diopter lens which allows you to decrease the minimum focus distance on any lens, in turn increasing the effective maximum reproduction ratio of your lens. Additionally, you can combine close-up lenses to increase their strength and to fine tune your close-up settings.

The +4 diopter of this close-up lens is the right power for closer focusing with a 50mm lens (up to approx 1:3). With an 85mm (up to approx. 1:2.1) and 100mm (up to approx. 1:1.9) telephoto lenses, it is the highest power, and it should be used with the main lens stopped down to at least f/8.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. This filter has a single anti-reflective coating, which helps to improve light transmission to over 98% while preventing internal reflections and ghosting. Additionally, it features a brass filter ring for increased durability as well as jamming prevention.

This filter decreases the minimum focus distance of any lens, providing macro-like results.
The maximum magnification achieved with these attachments will depend on the focal length of your lens as well as the actual close focusing capability of that particular lens
Single anti-reflective coating helps increase light transmission to over 98% while reducing reflections, flare, and ghosting.

          Comments about B+W 77mm Close-up +4 Lens (NL4):

          After trying those extension tubes for some macro photography I honestly was also kind of skeptical about this Close-up filter. Extension tubes are just a NO-GO for me, once you constantly attach and detach the lens, giving all the opportunities for dust to get in the camera sensor (specially when photographing outdoors).And this is what is great about this B+W close-up filter! Simply attach in front of the lens and you have a macro ability. Simple as that! It is easy to carry around (fits in almost any pocket and camera bag), and it works great. I have taken only a few test shots with this filter, but I'm very satisfied with the results and the image quality.You can go wrong with this. It is cheap, easy to use, compact and works great.PS. I have also tested with an ADAPTER RING (77mm to 72mm) to fit a 72mm diameter lens (Canon L 50mm f1.2) with to problem or image distortion. :)

            Comments about B+W 77mm Close-up +4 Lens (NL4):

            I use this filter as substitute for Macro lens to photograph details in nature, especially flowers. Great price and usual high quality of B+W filters. May need to use a narrower aperture (ex. f/8) as this filter seems to narrow the depth of field.

                      This +4 ensures I can get as close as necessary to whatever feature or creature I am photographing underwater. There is no deterioration of picture quality and kept it on the lens on every dive so ease of use could not be any better.
