MC Macro Close-Up Lens 49-62-67mm

Higher Magnification

Using a Close-Up Lens is the most effective way to achieve a closer minimal focal distance. The magnification achieved depends on the focal range of the lens. It will be higher with longer focal lengths. The diopters of the NiSi 49mm Close-up lens is +9. The Close-Up Lens is constructed from three optical corrective glass, all with apochromatic design and muti-nano coating. This enables advanced resolution, natural color with almost no purple/green fringing both within focus and in bokeh. The magnification will be 1:1 at a focal length of 110mm for full frame cameras. (The magnification will be 1.5X for APS-C and 2X for 4/3 cameras)

  • Three NiSi APO correttive optical glass
  • Multi-Nano Coating® NiSi treatment, for better sharpness and easy cleaning from water and grease (such as fingerprints)
  • Magnification to 1: 1 when shooting at 110mm on full frame
  • Design that significantly reduces the purple/green fringing
  • Diopters +9
  • The close-up lens screws directly to 49mm thread lenses, and additional adapter rings are included in the kit for use with 62mm and 67mm threads. You can use a third party adapter ring to use the Close-up NiSi lens with lenses with any thread, the important thing is to have focal lengths between 70 and 300mm for better results

Tips to get the best results from the MC NiSi Macro Close-Up Lens 49mm

  • The best working distance is from 2-14 cm. Move the camera appropriately to achieve a focused image.
  • We recommend using a tripod and NiSi’s Macro Focusing Rails NM-180 or NM-200s to achieve the most accurate focal point.
  • NiSi Close-Up Lens does not affect exposure. If capturing images handheld, we would recommend using a small aperture combined with an external flash unit or higher ISO setting.
  • When using the Close-Up Lens on longer focal length lenses, the magnification is increased. Bokeh can be achieved if the Close-Up Lens is used with a wider aperture.
  • When you using the Close-Up Lens, the best focal length depends on the lens you are using. The magnification will also differ based on the differing design of each specific lens.
  • We recommend to use the NiSi Macro Focusing Rails NM-180 or NM-200s when if you choose to shoot a focus stack series of images.

Close-Up Macro NiSi lens: unique on the market

Close-up lenses on the market hardly use optical glass, let alone precision glass which is exclusive to NiSi. Moreover, only the best (and very expensive) close-up lenses use apochromatic lenses. In the NiSi Close-up we use the NiSi APO correttive optical glass. In addition, we have exclusively applied a NiSi Multi Coating treatment for this product which includes our exclusive Nano Coating® NiSi.

How do we achieve this quality while keeping the price affordable? Thanks to our innovative approach, which allows us to design, produce and distribute our products directly, without having to increase prices and without compromising on quality. The NiSi warranty is a real guarantee, direct and certified by the people who designed and manufactured the products.
