I wanted to share some photos with everyone that i took with the Raynox DCR-250 Super Macro Conversion Lens. I am using Canon S1 IS camera, I am new to photography that is why I decided to try this lense. It was purchased at http://www.bhphotovideo.comwith 3 day UPS it cost me $55

Here are the samples.

Great pictures! Just have been looking at this lens and a wide angle (6600pro) & telephoto (1850pro). Would be nice to have one of each, but trying to decide which to buy first. Looks like the macro lens would be a good choice.

Which you buy first depends on what you want to shoot more. The DCR-6600Pro is the best wide angle out there due to it's very minimal barrel distortion. BTW, have you looked at the DCR-2200Pro (2.2x) yet (if it's compatible with your camera)?

Yes, in fact the 2020 is my first choice, but I haven't justified the cost or size difference quite yet. It seems a bit bigger than the 6600.

I think all of the Raynox DCR series will fit my camera (Canon S1 IS) with the 52mm lens adaptor. I hope I'm not mistaken about this...

With so many choices it's easy to get lost in lens options! But I've read all good things about Raynox. I think they're a good bet. Wondering if there are any other quality lens manufacturers out there in the same price range. It's certainly nice to have options!


And one more thing...


I can't seem to understand the differences between how a telephoto lens and macro lens can BOTH take great 'macro' shots. :?:

I'm guessing the difference lies in the distance (depth of field) from the object you are shooting? So a shot of a penny would be taken with a macro lens (DCR-250) and a picture of a rattlesnake at 15 feet with the telephoto lens (2020)?
