    Raynox DCR-250 reviews

    DCR-250 2.5x Super Macro Lens is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 158.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick & Dirty Macro (actual quite clean) I use this with a 60D and 18-135 Canon IS lens along with 68mm of extension... gets me to 1:1 mag (I think:)... took photos of a jumping spider and printed at 16x20... WOW just fantastic resolution, clarity... The bad? Lousy lens cap, keep it a little loose... The challenges? if you're using this to shoot insects handheld, realize you lose working distance... also, the very shallow depth of field means you need a higher f-stop = less light, so use an off camera flash w/ diffuser to allow for the higher shutter speed you'll need... I use a 430EX and synch at 1/250, then shoot at 5fps... usually get plenty of keepers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens, caps could be better I am using it with my Fuji S5200 superzoom and I am impressed how great pictures I can get even with this old camera. Like with all macro, a lot of light, a lof of patience, and a steady hand (or a tripod) is needed, but it's truly worth it. Even the camera's lens cap fit the Raynox lens so I can protect it when it's on the camera. The only thing I do not like is that the one of DCR's own caps cannot be put on when the lens is in the adapter. Which means that I have to always remove it from the adapter after I am done wth shooting, or keep it unprotected. But it's a minor thing, unless someone needs to switch quickly often between shooting macro and normal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Godd optic, bad plastic Great about it: one of the best macro lens adapters I've used. Lightweight, small, easy to cary. Greatly improves macro capabilities of your lens without degrading quality. Works perfectly with my Tamron 90mm macro lens. Not so great about it: it's not fitting in perfectly, plastic adapter is a bit loose and it moves once positioned on the lens, this misplacement can sometimes cause issues with focusing ( even if it is a fraction of a millimeter out of center ). I would suggest using 43mm step ring for your lens and not using universal adapter that comes with the lens, once screwed and positioned it works like a charm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact flexibility Small enough to fit in any camera bag, and great image quality to boot. Until some good quality extension tubes are released for the Fuji X system, this is one of the best options for close up work if you don't feel a need for the 60mm macro. I've paired it successfully with the 23mm even -- requires some cropping of the frame but does produce useable results. The included mount is decent, but I'd advise step down rings if you plan to be moving around a lot as it is not the most stable set up. Included lens caps also leave much to be desired, and the plastic box it comes in is pretty large -- be on the lookout for your own pouch to slip this into.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for macro photography If you are looking for an add-on lens to increase magnification for macro photos, this one is very high quality.This will make any lens you have a super macro. But be aware that it is extremely hard to keep focus and will take time to learn to get good pictures on a regular basis. You need a lot of light, patience, and steady hands and you can get great pictures from this. Using a Canon 60D and my 100mm F2.8 L canon lens, I'm pretty happy with the results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Alternative Macro Lens When I got this product, I was looking for a cheap alternative to spending several hundred dollars on an actual lens, and this attachment was definitely the way to go. It provides a clear, crisp, detailed image. This lens is ideal for the more common macro shots, such as insects, flowers, etc., as well as other things out of the ordinary. The only downside is that it attaches the same way a lens cap does - by an outward-force clip that goes on the inside of the rim of your actual lens. This leads to a consistent feeling that it may fall off if you hold your camera vertically down or accidentally shake it too hard. However, thus far, this fear has yet to be justified. Overall, I'm VERY pleased with this lens.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unimpressed Completely unimpressed with the raynox. I have seen some good results from other users so i bought it to play around with and after using it, my investment in extension tubes was a much better decision for my 5DMKIII than the raynox. it degraded image quality way too much, wrecks autofocus and reduced DOF to just about 0. Extension tubes on the other hand didnt reduce image quality at all since there is no glass, autofocus still worked great, and gives a much more manageable DOF. I guess if you're looking for a cheap way to get super macro, this would be fine but i have used better diopters and macro accessories that i would get before getting this again

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice macro adapter Cons - The device takes 49mm filters, but only fits on lens larger than 52mm. Macro focusing is time consuming and requires lots of learning. The supplied lens caps are trash. Pros - Pictures are very sharp throughout the field of the lens. It may not take pictures as well as a dedicated prime macro lens, but the pictures I've taken look fantastic. Bottom line - If I lost this adapter, I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.
