Not great for close ups, but good for making a camera obscura!
on 19 February 2011
I bought this set mainly because I needed the least powerful filter to use as a lens in the camera obscura I was making in my bedroom, for this it worked well! An even less powerful one may have even worked better giving a larger image. I decided on this set because I wasn't 100% sure what strength I needed and this set gave me 4 options and for a very low price. But as a close up set of filter they aren't very good, the depth of field in insanely small and makes focusing very hard. The best way around it is to use a large aperture and large flash, probably using a tripod would help too! Basically a lot of effort for a very average result. And probably worth saving up for a macro lens.
