The Polaroid 37mm Close-Up Filter Kit (+1, +2, +4, +10) is a set of 4 close-up lenses for use in achieving macro-like results with almost any lens you pair them with. Close-up lenses are essentially diopters that you place over your lens in order to lessen the minimum focus distance by the amount specified on the filter. You can combine the filters together to increase their strength and to fine tune your close-up settings.

These filters are constructed from premium grade optical glass and feature dual threads for ease when combining with other filters. A ballistic nylon filter wallet is included with the kit for protection and keeping your filters together.

These filters decrease the minimum focus distance of any lens, providing macro-like results.
+1, +2, +4, and +10 strengths allow you to vary and modify your desired close-up amount.
Dual threading permits you to combine the filters together or pair with other types of filters.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Turns my 45mm/1.8 Olympus into a macro As part of my job, I occasionally need to take photos of very small objects. I also travel a lot, so I wanted something that packs small -- i.e., not a dedicated macro lens. After doing lots of research online, I found that multi-element closeup filters can deliver very good results, when combined with a long zoom or prime. They are like reading glasses for your lens. They let you get closer, so you can focus on smaller objects. I narrowed the field down to the Raynox DCR-150 (+4.8 diopters) and the Raynox DCR-250 (+8 diopters). Both are 2-group/3-element lenses -- very good glass. Trouble was, I wasn't sure how much magnification I'd need to get my Olympus 45mm to focus close enough. Then I saw this Polaroid closeup lens kit. For half the cost of a single Raynox, it included a full range of magnifiers from +1 all the way up to +10 diopters. Now, these are single-element lenses, so they won't be as sharp, but they're cheap -- so I figured I'd use them to test how many diopters I needed on my Olympus 45, and then get the appropriate Raynox. After trying them, I was pleasantly surprised. They're soft in the corners, and I don't recommend stacking them, but for my purposes, they are good enough. On the Oly 45mm/1.8, these filters let you fill the frame with subjects of the following sizes... +10 filter ... 27x20mm to 37x28mm +4 filter ... 56x42mm to 97x72mm +2 filter ... 80x60mm to 213x160mm The +1 filter is useless to me, since the Oly45 on its own can focus on objects 146x110mm and up. I'm sure you'll get better results from the Raynox (and even better results with an actual macro lens) but for the price and the size savings in your camera bag, these Polaroid filters are pretty good.
