Heliopan 704627 Overview

The Heliopan 46mm Close-Up +1 Lens is a convex diopter designed to decrease the minimum focus distance of any lens in order to produce a shorter working distance for close-up photography. Available in varying strengths, close-up lenses also feature 46mm front filter threads for combining two or more filters to fine-tune results.

The front and rear surfaces of the filter both feature a single anti-reflection coating. Each coating helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, they offer protection to the filter substrate while helping to keep the glass clean for longer than uncoated glass.

This Heliopan filter is constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. It features a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

Convex lens design and +1 dioptric strength lessens the minimum focusing distance of any lens for close-up shooting.
Single coatings on both the front and rear offer protection to the glass and help to improve light transmission and image quality.
Constructed from Schott glass for optical clarity.
Brass filter ring helps to prevent jamming and provides additional strength.
Dual threading with 46mm front filter threads permits combining with other filters.

Works great on a Polaroid 180 / 195

By Robert
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2011-11-30

This high quality lens is multicoated, so the risk of flare is minimized. Also, the brass mount prevents seizing on lens mounts. As a Polaroid pack film buff, I use a 45-46mm step up ring in order to allow me to use common 46mm filters on my Polaroid 180. I think the 195 has the same 45mm filter size. Use the appropriate viewfinder goggles from a Polaroid 581A Portrait kit (for the 250, but the Zeiss rangefinder is the same as the 180), and the world is your oyster! This gets you out of the 5 feet minimum focus of the camera into an intimate portrait distance. The high quality of the close-up images, even wide open and at minimum focus, is quite astonishing.
