Hi everyone, i'm having a hard time distinguishing between the many types of closeup lens attachements. I have an aivascope anamorphic adaptor with an 82mm front thread. It focuses to about 1m away, but I would love to have an adaptor to do extreme closeup macro shots (within 1') of the lens.
I've seen closeup lens filters for as little as $3 all the way to $200 for the Hoya set, all claiming to do the same thing. Can anyone explain why there is such a variance in price? Is there nothing available for around $50 that will do the trick well enough?
