B+W 55mm NL-2 Close Up Lens 76040
Optical condition: 5 / 55
Mechanicals: 5 / 55
The B+W 55mm Close-Up Lens NL 2 offers the ability to achieve macro-like results with camera lenses that have 55mm front filter threads. A close-up lens is a magnifier that optically decreases the focal length of a camera lens placed behind it. This effect lessens the minimum focus distance between the camera lens and a subject. Magnification can then be obtained by decreasing the distance between the subject and the combined camera lens and close-up lens.
The magnifying power of a close-up lens is indicated by its dioptre strength. A close-up lens with a higher dioptre number provides more relative magnification and can be combined with other close-up lenses to increase, or fine-tune the macro effect. This close-up lens has a dioptre strength of +2.
