Macro Lens Converter

Macro Images Made Easy

There are so many ways to take macro shots but as a destination photographer, every inch in my bag is a precious commodity. Many photographers buy an expensive macro lens for $1,000 but it is hard for me to justify packing a lens taking up valuable real-estate that I will use for only a few shots. However these precious few close-up shots are very integral to telling the story of the wedding day. I wanted a solution that is fast to set up, creates quality imagery, has a very small footprint and easy on the wallet.

I concluded that it was far easier to attach and screw on a lens adapter than to change lenses, etc. The thought of taking on and off lenses and or putting on an extension tube then taking it off made me dizzy. If there is one thing I learned with real world photography… if it ain’t easy, you wont do it! That is why I created this macro solution that is very fast to set-up, takes up very little space and produces quality results. I had to test this product and it had to be worthy to add to my gear bag. Since I often have images published around the world it was imperative that this product produce high quality images. You can be the judge as you view these images.

My favorite lens to use this Macro Converter on is my 24-200 zoom lens. I always pack that lens in my bag because it is my emergency lens- I could shoot an entire wedding with it if I had to and since macro photography is best done at F5.6 and above an inexpensive zoom lens works perfectly because you can adjust the zoom to fit how much macro you want. Sometimes with wedding photography, we need macro shots of very small objects like rings and then larger objects like wedding favors, shoes, etc. I do recommend using a lens 50mm or greater. Just screw this lens adapter on top of your lens and you’re ready to go! I designed the Macro Converter to fit 77mm thread on your lens because that is the most popular size for most professional photographers i.e. 24-70 F2.8, 70-200 F2.8, 24-105 F4 are all 77mm. However if you need it to fit a smaller size lens, you can use the optional step of rings (Lens Adapter Rings) that will be able to fit this Macro Converter to any lens using a thread from 49mm to 72mm.

After much testing and research, I believe this is a great low cost solution that is easy and fast to use which will yield quality results. I know you won’t be disappointed. Don’t spend hundreds on a macro lens when you can use this!

Amos - Yes! I was leaning toward buying a macro lens before you started talking about this converter so I held off. Just ordered the converter and can’t wait to try it out on my 70-200! Glad I was able to bump into you at iUSA a few week ago… Keep being you Scott!

Penny foster - I’ve been reverse mounting a cheap 50mm FD lens ever since you taught that tip on creative live, but this looks brilliant for using my other lenses, so I will definitely try this out. We don’t all have big bucks to throw at photography, so thank you for coming up with amazing ways to save money in this business..

Jacki Marino (Running-Bear) - Scott: What 85mm lens are you using with the a6000? I am trying to decide between a Nikon 85mm and a Sony 50mm. Would like the 85 but want to use it on my Sony as well if I can.

admin - I’m testing out my own 85mm F1.8 lens- all manual. Will be under $200.

Jacki Marino - Anyone enjoy shooting macro but hate spending money on macro lenses? Or want to try macro but can’t afford to buy a good lens? You have got to check this out!

I just received mine last night and I can tell you all, this is awesome! I have both the macro filter and the adapter rings so I can use it on all my lenses. Does not matter if you have a full frame or crop sensor camera. Works with autofocus as well as manual. For the price, if you want to try shooting macro, you can’t beat it. I tried it on my Nikon 610 and my Sony a6000 – just beautiful on both.

sarah - Hi Scott,

I’m wondering what I would need to convert my AF-S Nikkor 50MM 1:1.4G lens to a macro.

I’m not sure I understand if I need the Macro Lens Converter or Lens Adapter Rings. Do they work the exact same way?

admin - Hi Sarah, yes you need the adapter rings- you just use the amount of rings needed to fit your lens.
