Hoya A-49CUS-GB overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 49mm Multicoated Close-up Lens Set is a set of three close-up lenses for use in achieving macro-like results with almost any camera lens you pair them with. Close-up lenses are magnifiers that optically decrease the focal length of a camera lens it is placed on. This effect lessens the minimum focus distance between your camera lens and an object. Magnification can then be obtained while photographing an object by moving the front of the camera lens close to it.

The magnifying power of each 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 its effect. These lenses are multicoated to help reduce flare and improve light transmission.

Close-up lenses decrease the minimum focus distance of almost any camera lens, providing macro-like results.
+1, +2, and +4 strengths allow you to vary and modify your desired close-up effect.
Dual threading permits you to combine the close-up lenses together or pair them with filters.

    Hoya A-49CUS-GB reviews

    49mm Multicoated Close-up Lens Set is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As expected I have only played around with some test shots using my Sony Nex 7 of a dime and need to improve the photos a little (increase the f stop) for a larger focused area. But they do work well. The case they come with, is likely a standard size. I find the small 49mm filters can slide around and fall too eaily. But this is preventable with a little care. On the underside of the filter, there is a spot that the lens cloth does get caught on. While this does not affect picture quality, it does make them harder to clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised. I was skeptical at first about this product that I read about in Outdoor Photography Magazine. But after reading some reviews and a tutorial on You Tube I was sold. I took delivery, unpacked and inspected for quality and threaded them on to my 50mm 1.8f Sony Lens....Bang I have a macro lens for under $ bucks. Great Buy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product really easy to use, really well made. the only thing is that you need a large lens to attach the kit. but for the money, instead of buying a macro lens, this is the way to go!!
