This is the “younger” brother of DCR-250 and easier to use due to the lower magnification of +4.8 Diopter instead of +8 Diopter for DCR-250.
Who should use DCR-150:
– New to macro photography
– Unstable or shaking hands
– Only shooting flowers and other big objects, not keen on insects
– Using a prosumer camera with more than 15x optical zoom (optional adapter may be required)
If two or more of the above describe your situation, the DCR-150 should probably be your first choice!
This version from McGill comes with an additional flash diffuser for stunning all-round illumination of the subject!
NOTE: Focusing distance of this macro converter lens is shorter than that of a normal DSLR lens. There is no issue in shooting after regular practice.
Focusing distance of DCR-250: 20cm
Focusing distance of standard DSLR lenses: 30cm
