Can’t afford a macro lens? Here are 3 different solutions for under $20 each!

Macro Lens On A Budget: 3 Options Under $20 - YouTube

  • Reverse Macro Adapter on Amazon
  • Close Up Filters on Amazon
  • Macro Extension Tubes on Amazon
1. Reverse Macro Adapter

Simply purchase the adapter with the mount you want (EF, MFT etc) and the thread size of your lens.

Pros:

  • Very cheap
  • Doesn’t take up much room
  • Great effect
  • Easy to use

Cons:

  • Exposes the rear element of your lens to potential damage
  • Lose light due to smaller opening at rear of lens. This might not effect all lenses.

Reverse Macro Adapter on Amazon

2. Close Up Filters

You can purchase these individually or as a kit of 4 filters.
They come in several different filter sizes to fit your lens.

Pros:

  • Very easy to use
  • Can be used for extreme macro or for getting a few inches/feet closer to your subject
  • Doesn’t add much to your lens
  • You don’t have to remove your lens to use

Cons:

  • Lower quality images compared to other options

Close Up Filters on Amazon

3. Macro Extension Tubes

Choose a mount (EF, MFT etc) and choose between dummy (no electronics) or smart (little pins for auto focus and aperture control)
Here is the exact model I used on Amazon: http://geni.us/orHyv
And here is the electronic EF version I mentioned on Amazon: http://geni.us/qJuo4

Pros:

  • Best image quality since there is no additional glass
  • Customizable strengths be adding/removing middle treaded sections.

Cons:

  • Bulky
  • Time consuming setup

This crazy vlogging mic setup gives you front and back audio that you can control in your edit! Watch the video to see how it works and checkout the gear used below. All parts can be found on my Kit profile here.

Best Vlogging Microphone? My Overkill Dual Mic Setup - YouTube

GEAR USED

You will need two microphones for this setup. I’d recommend a pair of the following options:

  • Rode VideoMicro
  • Movo VXR10 Mic
    • For Canon DSLRs, I’d recommend this “louder” option.
    • Amazon
  • Cold Shoe Extender
  • Special Splitter Cable
    • Amazon
    • You can watch my full review of this cable here
    • Remember, this isn’t your standard splitter, but rather a L and R channel splitter which is what we want!
  • Angled 3.5mm Adapter
    • Amazon
    • This thing rocks for keeping that mic cable from blocking your screen!
  • Finally, a little velcro strap can be used to tie down all the cables and you’re done!
