If I am using a TLR camera, do I need to buy two of these? One of the taking lens and one for the viewing lens? Or is it a set?
Asked by: Justin
Two of the Heliopan 72mm Close-Up +3 Lens should be used on both lenses on the TLR camera. Note, that it has not been tested and adding a filter to each lens might not fit well because of the thickness of the filter frame.

Hi I have a Nikor 18-200mm lens. Which close-up filter shpuld I use.? 72mm?Is it the same a as wide angle converter ?
Asked by: Andres
Yes, you would use the 72mm because the Nikkor 18-200mm has a 72mm thread. This filter is not the same as a wide angle converter, but you can get a 72mm wide angle converter for the lens.
