Hoya close-up filter for Fuji HS20 + Raynox DCR-250

Hey people,

I have a Fujifilm Finepix HS20exr + Raynox DCR-250 macro lens. Someone told me that I shoul buy the Hoya Close-up filter set with +1, +2 and +4. This in combination with the Raynox DCR-250 to get even closer to the object.

Does someone have any experience with Hoya combined with Raynox 250? I would like to know if this combination is possible and if it gives good quality. I don't use a tripod by the way.

Thanks by forhand

The Raynox 250 gives a very shallow depth of field as it is and adding extra macro filters to the front will decrease this further .

You could try it but I wouldn't hold out much hope for  any usable images unless you are doing 2D objects .

 With that total combination added onto your lens, you had better make sure the front element is dust-free, because that is probably what will be in focus. Perhaps what your advisor meant you to try, was just one at a time , the use of the lesser - powered dioptre close-up lenses. Is the Raynox lens about 8 or 10 dioptre in power?

@ Watcher8: No she didn't mean to try one at a time. I am 200% sure she uses HS20 + Hoya+2 and Raynox DCR-250 together. I saw some of her pictures and they are very very awesome... but as Ray said.. the depth of field is very hard to work with. And when you have added hoya it will be even harder to handle with.

Raynox has 8 dipoter.
