yup..though 1 advantage ng closeup filter is di mo na kailangan mgadjust adjust ng exposre settings ;D..but  quality is not that good as the real macro lens..magnifying glass lang yon e ;D

Why  is the text the same size? If second pic has a 2X closeup filter on and they are both 100% crops  shouldn't it be larger? ???

actually yes..hehe.. kasi kahit imagnify mo yan ung full size is pareho parin..may slight difference actually hindi sa size but sa detail though di parin papasa yan sa quality control ng mga photographers kung baga.hehehe.. close-up filters kasi kdalasan ginagamit sa lens na medyo off/malayo ung macro capability..dun nakikita ung difference pag kinabit mo doon.. cguro mas bagay extenders vs macro lens? ;D

Di kaya peke yung X2 filter? ;D ;D ;D  Take a look at this site which  shows the effect of Hoya close up filters.  There is a big difference in frame coverage at +2 even  when added to a lens with macro capability.

I think I understand,  if you are using a true macro and are close to the subject already the close up filter has less of an effect?  Tama ba? ???

"Thou Shall Not doubt the capability of any Macro accessories!"  ;D

Be my guest to judge which one was taken with Zoom lens+Closeup Filter and which one was taken with True Macro Lens:

Both are Uncropped.

localhost, sorry for the late reply. You may want to try Nikon 6T as well it's about half the price of Canon couterpart. Double elements din yan kaya walang problema sa quality. Or, seach for Raynox closeup filters they make excellent closeup filters. Just don't go for more than +4 strength if possible. Thicker glass often degrades image quality.

cheers

I am not sure if this will help, but my based on my experience on my KM A200 which can only focus correctly around 12 to 18 inches from a subject, using a +4 Cokin closeup filter allowed me to half the distance previously required to take the shot.

This means that if I want to capture a small item without using the zoom, a closeup filter allows me to get closer to the subject to capture more detail without losing focus.  I am sorry I don't have any experience with a true macro lens because I don't have a dSLR.

I have both the +2 and +4 Cokin closeup filters... the +2 doesn't make much of a difference, its the +4 which I really find usable and consequently use a lot.  A side note: I got the Cokin +4 filter for only P100 in Island Photo Hidalgo during the re-launching of Hidalgo street as a photographer's paradise.  It and a Cokin CP filter also at P100 which I'd say were one of my better finds in Hidalgo.
