Before I had my FZ-30 I used to own a Canon 20D with a few lenses, one of which was a dedicated macro lens which I very much enjoyed using.

Anyhow I 'd seen lots of posts here with some amazing images using close-up lenses.

Now before I went out and splached out on a 4T,6T or DCR-250 for my FX-30 I had theopportunity to get for very little (£5.00 GBP) a set offour 62mm FOX close-up lenses. There are +1, +2,+4 and a +10.

My question is how will they help me? When attached will I still be able to focus down at 5cm away, will they enlarge the image? or do they just let me get the same macro ratio but from further away?

I'm only asking as I know the close-ups have been delivered to home, but it's 8 hours befor I can get home and have a play with them!!!

Many thanks

You may be able to focus down but the quality will not be there. Try one of these.
