Product Description

Product Description

The Lensbaby Macro Converters are compatible with all Lensbaby lens bodies and optics, making macro photography available to all new and existing Lensbaby photographers with multiple options above and beyond the existing Lensbaby Macro kit.

Lensbaby's Macro Converter Extension Rings for Lensbaby lets you take that Lensbaby look as close to your subject as you want--even touching it in some cases--and get a picture that's in focus. You can choose the 8mm ring, the 16mm ring (both included), or combine them for a 24mm ring, so you have plenty of control over exactly how close-up you want your photo to be. The converters simply screw into the Lensbaby lens body - and then the optic screws into the converter.

The converters are compatible with Composer, Composer Pro, Muse, Scout, Control Freak and all optics (the Fisheye Optic is only compatible with the 8mm converter, as it allows you to actually focus on a subject that the lens is touching).

These macro converters allow you to shoot close up when used with the Sweet 35. Used together, they really do get close up, or can be used separately. They attach to the Composer/Pro, and the Sweet 35 then goes into that. I agree with one of the US reviewers who found the silver one a little hard to get off the lens and it has put me off using them a bit for fear of breaking something. But it's likely that will ease with use. The alternative is to put 46mm close up filters on the front of the Sweet 35 which would also give some interesting results but may affect the quality of the image with the extra glass/layers. Overall, I think these work really well, giving the option to shoot close up with the Sweet 35 and are worth the cost.

if you have beend down the road 28 Feb. 2013
By Lucy L. - Published on Amazon.com

to Lensbaby composer Pro with Sweet 35 already, like I was, then there is no way around the macro converters. In order to have full use, or more variety of the Composer. I was really evaluating the idea of spending another $ 50.- on the LB system, but I did, and I did not regret. The macro quality is really good. It is never easy to take macro anyway, and you have a shallow depth of field with a conventional macro sysyem, unless you have tons of light. So if I compare the LB macro with conventional macro results, quality wise LB is not behind. Artistically LB macro does convince of course even more. Not only that you have the blurry parts of the small DOF, no, you have the LB Bouquet, which is more like a radiant blur, I just love it. Ok, placing the sweet spot is not easy, but with some practise it will come.

Must have with Sweet 35 optic 6 July 2013
By Kasey Dog Trainer - Published on Amazon.com

Took some awesome macro pictures with my LensBaby Sweet 35 optic which would not be possible.without this converter. The only con was that I could not get it off the Sweet 35 optic (the silver ring) but learned a trick of the trade from Doug Sahlin's Lensbaby book that got it right off.

Perfect. 10 Oct. 2013
By Trisarahtops - Published on Amazon.com
I am just trying out macro work for the first time really and didn't want to invest in a dedicated macro lens. My boyfriend got me these for Christmas last year and I absolutely love using them. Really fun to work with! I highly recommend them! Easy to use! I use them with the sweet 35 optic mainly, but also use them with the double glass optic as well!

You need this for Macro photography 12 Jan. 2014
By Jake E - Published on Amazon.com

The lensbaby alone is amazing, paired with this you can take unbelievable photos. It bring the focus distance in from 18 inches to a little less than 3 inches. I always keep them stacked, because I don't think that you would ever want a only semi macro lens. It stacks nicely like all other lensbaby products.

Love! 17 Feb. 2014
By jen123 - Published on Amazon.com

These work so perfectly for macro photography. I use mine with my Control Freak and I'm in love. A little hard to get in and out of the lens, but it gets easier with practice. Make sure to watch a tutorial video if you're having trouble- if you force it you could break the lens.
