Close-up lenses for professional macro photography

Close-up lenses, also called macro lenses, allow you to take photos on an enlarged scale. Although photos can also be enlarged later, the resolution is reduced in the process. From a certain scale, no new details appear when you enlarge the image. Only a suitable close-up lens can help.

Expanding the range of photography with close-up lenses

You can take macro photos with special macro lenses, but also with standard equipment and macro accessories such as close-up lenses or macro attachment lenses. Screw a close-up lens into the filter thread of the front lens ring. It must therefore have the right diameter for the lens. The macro lens acts like a pair of glasses for the camera lens and its power is also given in dioptres.
