  • 1Description

The B+W 62mm Close-Up +1 SC NL 1 Lens offers the ability to achieve macro-like results with camera lenses that have 62mm front filter threads. A close-up lens is a magnifier that optically decreases the focal length of a camera lens placed behind it. This effect lessens the minimum focus distance between the camera lens and a subject. Magnification can then be obtained by decreasing the distance between the subject and the combined camera lens and close-up lens.

The magnifying power of a close-up lens is indicated by its diopter strength. A close-up lens with a higher diopter number provides more relative magnification and can be combined with other close-up lenses to increase, or fine-tune the macro effect. This close-up lens has a diopter strength of +1. Diopter strengths of +2, +3, +4, or +5 are also available where this close-up lens type's effect becomes progressively stronger with each diopter strength number increase.

To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, each glass surface of this lens includes one layer of anti-reflection coating. B+W close-up lenses are constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity. This close-up lens features an F-Pro brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

    62mm Close-Up +1 SC NL 1 Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes whole zoom range in sharp focus at 20 Bought this to use on a Lumix FZ1000 with a copy stand to digitize old photos. (Much faster than scanning, with much more reasonable file sizes.) While the camera has a macro zoom mode, it uses only about 1/3 of the zoom range. The B&W +1 close-up lens filter brings the infinity setting to 1 meter, and the close focus end to just about 20 from the lens front. Now the entire zoom range usable, covering photos from larger than the copy stand base down to about 1.5x2.0. A +2 filter would also work, though the stronger the close-up lens, the more blurring and color fringing at the edges of the picture. To counter that, I use as small an aperture as possible (like f/8 or f/11) to increase sharpness. It's hard to find close-up filters with anti-reflection coatings, but B&W has a single coating, and their optical quality is excellent.
