a camera lens designed to focus at short distances so as to achieve photographic magnifications of objects larger than with standard lenses.
A lens that provides continuous focusing from infinity to extreme close-ups, often to a reproduction ratio of 1:2 (half life-size) or 1:1 (life-size). Nikon's version for their "macro" is "micro", eg. 105mm F2.8 Micro-Nikkor.
A lens designed to produce very high sharpness when focused up-close; a lens that produces a ratio of 1:1 when used up close.
A lens designed for close-up photography. Sometimes known as a micro lens.
Is a lens specially designed to give accurate resolution of a very near subject without the need for supplementary attachments. Sometimes, incorrectly, referred to as a micro lens.
A lens specially designed macrophotography, enabling extremely sharp focusing at short distances
A lens that provides continuous focusing from infinity to extreme life-size 1:1 close-ups. Also used as a copy lens because of its highly corrected design and close-focusing. Macro lenses can also be used at ordinary subject distances (see: Copy, Close-up lens& Extension tubes)
A digital camera lens mode that allows one to get very close to objects so that they appear greatly enlarged in the picture.
a closeup lens that does not distort the image
an important feature for shooting products and small items, as it allows you to focus very closely
a single lens that can move the rear lens node farther forward from the film plane than a normal lens can, and nearly all still focus at infinity
Macro Lenses allow you take an overall view of a scene and then zoom in close to isolate details.
Allows the user to focus on objects/images from infinity to extreme close-ups often with a reproduction ratio of 1:2 (half life-size) or 1:1 (life-size)
Lens used for extreme close-ups. Used widely in nature photography where the subject (for example) might be a flower or insect.
A primary lens that can be focused from a very short distance out to infinity. May be a fixed focal length lens or a zoom. However most high magnification Macro lenses (lifesize or higher) are fixed.
A lens that allows users to take close-up photographs.
A lens specifically designed for close-up photography and capable of good optical performance when used very close to a subject.
lens with the ability to focus from infinity to extremely closely, allowing it to capture images of tiny objects in frame-filling, larger-than-life sizes. Sometimes called a "Close-up lens," although a close-up lens is usually a lens attachment for close-ups and does not generally have the ability to focus on infinity.
A lens that is made for extreme close-up photography to capture small subjects big on the image.
A lens that provides acurate resolution of extreme close-ups.
A lens designed for close-up photography, i.e. within about 20cm. Macro lenses are the preferred choice for photos of flowers and insects. Popular focal lengths are 50-60mm, while 90-100mm macro lenses are useful when you need slightly more distance to your subject.
A lens especially made for extreme close-up photography; lets you focus on a subject a few inches or less from the lens surface.
