Canon 500D Close-up Lens

 

Looking for Macro photography capabilities without spending a large sum of money?There are several ways to accomplish this, but Extensions tubes are one of the least expensive methods.The Canon 500D Close-up Lens is another.

If you only want to shoot at macro distances infrequently, the Canon 500D Close-up Lens might be what you want.

Canon - IXUS 500

 

There is little doubt that Canon is a market leader when it comes to digital cameras, and the IXUS range is right at the top of company's popularity tables. Digital cameras get 'refreshed' at regular periods, ...

The canon 500mm II is a masterpiece. Version I was as well, but somehow, some way canon managed to shave 1.5 lbs off of this lens. For travel and hiking this lens cannot be beat. The lens seems to AF slower with the series III tele converters vs the...

I had always dreamed of owning a big white one day, well that day came and what a lens it turned out to be. Fantastic image quality, even with the 1.4 converter it produces stunning images.

Canon EF 500mm f4 IS USM Lens

 

What a great lens, I used a friends and that had me hooked. There is nothing like a prime lens. I considered the 600mm, but 4lbs extra weight kills hand holding for birds in flight. So far I have some great keepers which are much improved over my...
