Closeup lens filter


New Member

I have recently purchased a set of closeup lens filters (can't buy a macro lens at this time), and wondered if someone could tell me how it's supposed to work. I thought I would just screw the lenses on and it would work, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Any info would be helpful. Tks!

That's how it should work, I use one myself sometimes with no problem.
Can you give more details?

Do you have to get right up on what you are trying to photograph? And is the auto focus supposed to work?
