General Brand AM5858 reviews

58mm Macro Coupler (Male to Male) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 58mm Macro Coupler (Male to Male) Great product! This is a not a common item, but I found it at B&H. It's very useful for when you want to get the maximum coverage from your wide angle lens. Wide angle lenses often come with an attached 'close-up' lens which is not necessary when using most modern digital camcorders. After you unscrew the 'close-up' lens you are left with 2 female mounts. One on the camcorder and the other on the wide angle adapter. This little coupler solves the problem enabling you to screw the wide angle lens directly onto the front of the camcorder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Easy to connect but with little awkward sticking sometimes. but it bears the weight of Canon's EF 100mm macro when connected on reverse. It's light plastic though and small in size. Careful not to lose it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best $ I've spent on photo gear If you shoot macro and can't get close enough, and have a spare 100mm and 50mm with 58mm front ends, this is a really really great piece of kit to use. Gets insanely close focus distance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functions as Intended Not much more to say than the headline. This coupler allows you to mate two lenses by the 58mm filter threads to enable lens reversal macro photography. Great: much less expensive than a dedicated macro lens; mix and match your existing lenses. Not so great: the lens reversal macro technique is something of a kludge, and you do not have any active control of the reversed lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 58mm Macro Coupler I purchased this product to try my hand at macro photography by connection two lenses together. This coupler works great and the lenses felt very stable when connected. Screwing it onto the lenses was very smooth. I haven't found anything I dislike about this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I got this to experiment with reverse macro photography using a 100 mm prime lens and a 18-55 mm. The ring works fine for this, however, I must be using the wrong focal lengths since the only image I could get is a small tunnel through the view finder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No noticeable flaws...good product! Purchased this to reverse my 50 1.4 on my 100 2.8 macro. The coupler is tight. The threads are great and no problem with stripping. If you have two lenses that work well for reversing, this is the most inexpensive way of getting into macro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well once you get used to it. I've used it on flowers, coins, toys and other things in the near future. It took about an hour to get used to and I can't wait to use it more. A cheap alternative to buying a macro lens if budget is restricted.
