I'm in the same boat as you. Technically, I could get the professional 105mm f2.8, but I've come to appreciate my earned savings much more. I'd rather watch it grow and continue creating with minimum spending.
I'm definitely buying some macro filters haha. Do you have a recommendation for a specific brand? I also shoot with the Nikon D7100.
Hey I do arrowheads, and it's hard to capture the very very fine details of the flaking pattern. If you have time please take a look at what i mean.
If you have any suggestions as to how i can make it turn far more detailed please let me know. The camera I'm working with is a Canon Rebel XS or Canon EOS 1000d, different names. With a 18-55mm lens i believe.
So the set I got only seems to fit on my 55 - 250 lens but they don't fit on my 18 - 55 lens, even though they are both 58mm's. What would be the right macro filters for my 18 - 55 lens, if I wanted to get a set for it?
Hmm well in that case the lens must be a different size. I know I have a few that are Ø52 (perfect for my filters) but one lens is a Ø62 one. Have you checked the cap that goes with that particular lens?
You would need to focus manually with the +10 one, the others should be fine to autofocus. I guess there's different ones for different effects. If you only want to "zoom in" a tiny bit, you'd use the +1 or +2 filter. The +10 filter works perfectly for macro shots though. Just try different settings, just one filter, or 2 or all of them at a time, whichever works best for you
Sorry for the very late reply, I'm really really busy at the moment. What you need to do is find the cap that belongs to your lens and look on the inside of it, there it should state the diameter you need.
PERFECT .. LOVE you hehe .. .. i was really confused if these Macro Filters will get a good results till i saw this .. its amazing, thanks for doing it .. .. anywayz, i have a Question i have a Nikon D90 ,18-105 mm lens .. what Macro Filters fit what i have ??! or the number ?! or anything ?! .. ..
I don't think there's any way to know! Given that they're all relatively low in price, they should be all about the same quality. Personally, I just bought the cheapest set and I'm totally happy with it
