Nikon BR-3 reviews

BR-3 Mount Adapter Ring is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice reversing rings and LENS HOOD I have several BR2s and several BR3s. Did you guys know that this combination (BR2/BR3), can be also adapted for a nice lens hood. If you haven't figured this out,do it, but you can carry this two, in the form of a lens hood on your 52mm front of the lens and then when you need to reverse a lens, there you have it, and not only that, you can get this two together and do a nice extension ring too. Pick both, BR2 and BR3 and figure what I just told you. I have 4 BR2s and 4 BR3s since the 1980s and this is one of the most useful combination, ever created in photography.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful, well made. I recently bought this to use in reversing a 28mm ai for macro work. It is necessary to use in tandem with the BR-2A lens reversing ring. One can tell that it is a very sturdy ring, and seems to be built with the standards of very good manual focus lenses. There have been zero issues with this product. Also, with the very low field of view you get when you reverse a lens like this, what has worked best for me was to set the focus on the lens at infinity, place the camera on a tripod, and move the camera or subject forward and backward to achieve focus. Do this with the aperture as far open as possible, then close the aperture down to its most closed. Of course, it takes me some effort, because my D70s uses a pentamirror rather than a pentaprism. Always ask to make sure what camera you are looking at in a store uses a pentamirror or pentaprism. By far, the worst feature of my camera, for my uses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it supposed to do. When I reverse mount my 50mm 1.4 onto telephoto lens for super macro shots, the rear of the lens can be easily scratched, not to mention dust that can get inside. That's where this adapter ring comes in handy. You just attach it to the rear of the lens and screw the filter for extra protection. Now I don't have to worry about scratches and such. It's not heavy, and has a lock on it to prevent falling apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good protection for lens internals When a prime lens in mounted to your camera body backward with a reversing ring, the internal parts of the lens becomes exposed. Adding the BR-3 to the exposed part of the lens allows you to mount a clear filter for protection, or other filters as suits your project. This is a well-made, precise device that should be included in your box of macro accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice! Not really much to this mount although its seems sturdy enough. The mount is mostly plastic which is fine with me as that makes it lighter. I will most likely be using this in a studio like setting anyway - but really who wants more weight? Filter screws into it easily and removing from the lens is simple as well. Most importantly it will keep the dust out of my reversed lens. Would recommend to anyone trying macro shooting with their lens reversed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat-o Put this over the body mount of your lens if you're using a reversing ring like the BR-2A. Grab yourself a UV filter or something to put on the filter side. I find that the locking tab isn't quite aligned right, so in order to actually use it you have to either crank the piece on really tight, or just not lock it in place (it won't go anywhere, just the lock doesn't function).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A needed addition for reverse-mounting Used in tandem with a Reverse Adapter Ring, you get macro abilities for a fraction of the cost. I was able to take my 50mm f/1.8 that many Nikon users have and take some great close-up shots. Unfortunately there's no auto focus, but you're so close anyway, just shifting an inch or two will bring the object in and out of focus. It's not an actual REPLACEMENT for a macro lens, but definitely lets you get some great shots for a few bucks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Running Reversed, Lenses This allows you to run conventional attachments (filters) on a (52mm thread)lens you have reversed with the BR-2A Reversing ring.
