[SOLD] Close up lens 48mm made by Canon

Sold in stores for $30.
This will fit any 48mm lens or by using an adapter, any lens. Great for SLR's digital or conventional. Like new condition in original box.
Makes any lens a macro for closeup work.

The canon 450 is a close up lens of 2.2 diopters = 450mm focal length.
CANON 450 CLOSE-UP LENSES These are for lenses in the 50-200 range. They are good in quality and have been around for a number of years.

Canon made (until recently) two double element close-up filters for use on normal to short telephoto lenses. They can be used on any brand of lens and screw onto the front of your camera lens like any other filter. They are more expensive and significantly higher in quality than single element close-up filters. They are a not a common item. The following minimum and maximum magnifications are from Carl Shipman's HOW TO SELECT AND USE CANON SLR CAMERAS (page 74). Magnifications are in decimals rather than fractions. 0.25 = 1/4X, 0.33 = 1/3X, 0.47 is a tad smaller than 1/2X and so on.

Camera Lens Close-up Lens Magnification (min & max)
50mm 450 0.11 - 0.23

$12.00 shipped conus.
