Default Reverse macro adapter

With a reverse macro adapter and step-up/step-down rings you can connect EVERY (!) lens to NEX5 etc. for very sharp macro photos

reverse macro adapter NEX $ 12.45 / € 9.30 incl. shipping

Reverse macro adapters are for every camera - with different filter diameters - available. Most of my lenses have 58mm or more, so I have 58mm adapters for NEX and Canon.

With step-up/step-down rings there are no problems - a set with 8 rings (step-up, step-down) from China is cheaper than one ring from another country :-)

It's best tu use lenses with manual aperture and manual focus (like my Konica lenses and Samyangs), but it also works with Canon EOS lenses or NEX lenses.

Mount lens on NEX/CANON, select aperture and remove lens while camera is on. Then mount lens with other side (rings+adapter) - focus you get manually or with zoom ring or with camera distance.





aperture 16, two bulbs



two bulbs + LED torch

Waw. That is awesome. What would one need for a Nikon D3000?
