Hello,

My name is Alfonso and today I want to show you how to make a DIY macro lens from a normal Canon Lens.

Here I use a 28-80mm EF-S lens but all lenses should work.

IN THIS INSTRUCTABLE YOU NEED TO BE VERY CAREFULL WITH THE LENS AND THE RETIRED SCREWS. YOU CAN MAKE THE LENS NORMAL IF YOU WANT TO AGAIN. IT ISN'T A PERMANENT WORK.

Step 1: What You Need?

Its simple:

You need only a screwdriver and a Canon Lens.

Step 2: Unscrew the Screws From the Lens

First you will need to unscrew the screws from the left and right side from the front side of your lens.

YOU NEED TO BE REALLY CAREFUL BECAUSE THESE SCREWS ARE REALLY LITTLE.

Step 3: Retire the Front Lens

When you end with the screws you will put the front of the lens upside down and the front lens will came to your hands. Then the only thing you need to do is to put the lens in the camera and voila! You made your super macro DIY LENSES!!!

Step 4: Example Photos

This photos of one IC and the screw we unscrew were taken with DIY super macro lens.

Step 5: THANKS!

Thanks for reading my first Instructable. I hope you made it well and enjoy it! Be very carefull.

<p>Interesting idea! I assume that you can re-screw the front lens back in when you want to use it as a normal lens again, right? </p>
<p>Of course you can!</p><p>Blessings!</p>
Thanks for getting back to me!
<p>I don't quite get it could you explain a little more?</p>
Hello,<br>Thanks for reading my instructable. <br>You need to look for screws in the front part of your CANON lens.<br>When you found they simply unscrew and retire the front lens of your lens. Voila!<br>Blessings,<br>Alfonso I.
