What lenses can I use the Raynox 250 with?
Since the Raynox 250 conversion lens can be attached to nearly any lens via a flexible mount, I wanted to try it on a variety of lenses in our mirrorless collection to see how well it suited each one. I started out with two telephoto primes, moved onto one telephoto zoom, and finished off with a premium fixed zoom compact that has a macro mode.
Is the Raynox 24mm lens good for macro photography?
With the Raynox attached, you can take sharp macro shots even at the longest focal lengths. The difference between this lens and the primes and zoom I tested before is that you can get surprisingly close to your subject. At 24mm, you can get as close as a mere 1cm with the converter lens, about 2cm more than its native performance.
How to take good macro shots with the dcr-250?
The DCR-250 takes an already thin Depth-of-Field, and makes it razor-thin. Closing the aperture to f/29 is my best answer for opening the DOF a little–but it also means that the camera needs really intense lighting to expose the shot in a reasonable amount of time: thus I always shoot with flash for my macro shots.
