The 67mm Close-Up Kit from Hoya permits your lens to focus closer than normal. Imagine that you could put a magnifying glass in front of your camera's lens. Close-up lenses work in this fashion and are the simplest and least expensive method of close-up photography. They are available in different "powers" (diopters). A +1 close-up lens will allow you to focus your lens somewhat closer than it already does. A +2 close-up lens will allow you to focus closer than the +1. A +4 lens will allow you to focus even closer than a +2. A +1 combined with a +2 will equal a +3, while a +2 combined with a +4 will equal a +6, and so on.

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. They are multi-coated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting. When using these filters, either together or separately, your depth of field becomes quite shallow. Whenever possible, use of a small aperture will produce better results. In addition, as a result of the shallow depth of field produced by these filters, use of a tripod is strongly recommended to avoid "shake" and "blur" when photographing up close.

Hoya is one of the largest manufacturers of glass in the filter industry. In collaboration with its parent company, Tokina Optical, Hoya continues to strive to produce some of the best glass on the market. Currently, they hold 40% of the world's market for optical glass.

The advantage of most Hoya filters is that Hoya puts, at least, one layer of anti-reflective coating on each side of their glass. It is not bare glass. Even if the glass is not multi-coated, this kind of production tends to minimize flare and ghosting.

      Just screw it on your lens, and you can focus much closer than normally, you can combine the close-up filters to get even closer, but then you have more glass in front of your lens. Much cheaper than dedicated macro lens, but even if I own one, it is still nice to have these filters. I use them on wideangle lens as well and also with my medium format gear for which there is no dedicated macro lens.

          You need to bump up the Av a lot!!! Depth of field is very shallow as other review state. However, for what they are they work very well and are good quality.

          close-up without macro

          By Bill

          from Briacliff NY

          Comments about Hoya 67mm Close-Up Kit (Multi-Coated):

          This set of lenses is an inexpensive alternative to purchasing a macro lens. The field of view is limited but it allows you to obtain decent close-up shots of small objects. Image quality is good when I used them with a Canon 70-300mm L lens. The images were sharp and there was little loss of light. The other advantage to this set of lenses is that they screw onto a lens the same as you would attach a filter, which makes it easy to carry them and use them without switching lenses.

            The close-up filters are great inexpensive way to focus in on close-up detailed product shots in my studio or on location. I wasn't really prepared to purchase a macro lense, so this was an affordable option for right now. And they came with a very nice protective case! I'm always pleased with the products and prices I get from B&H. Thank you!

                        2. Was able to focus closer to the flowers that I was taking pictures of.

                                  Somewhat useful for macro photography, but don't expect it to be as sharp as a dedicated macro lens. Overall a cheap, decent way to start taking macros.

                                    These close-up lenses are excellent with sturdy construction and the multi-coating essentially eliminates ghosting and aberrations.The units screw on freely unlike other cheaper units. Without a doubt - the best value in a close-up set. Highly recommended - the results are terrific.

                                        Just screw it on your lens, and you can focus much closer than normally, you can combine the close-up filters to get even closer, but then you have more glass in front of your lens. Much cheaper than dedicated macro lens, but even if I own one, it is still nice to have these filters. I use them on wideangle lens as well and also with my medium format gear for which there is no dedicated macro lens.
