Macro Lenses 101

On this basic video tutorial by Canon, photographer Matt Kloskowski takes a look at macro lenses.

What are macro lenses and what are they good for? if you are just getting into photography and want to learn a bit about macro lenses this short clip by Canon is a good starting place (of course it is meant to promote Canon’s own products but keep in mind that other manufacturers have Macro lenses as well – although the Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 super macro lens mentioned in the video is actually pretty uniqe).

If you want to learn some more advanced macro shooting techniques head out to our macro video section here on Lensvid.

These videos are part of Canon’s EOS 101 basic tutorial series which you can view as it is updated here on LensVid.
