Please share your amazing Sigma DP1, DP2 and DP3 macro shots!

Group Description

Discover the amazing power of the DSLR size Foveon Sensor which is fitted into the portable Sigma DP Series of compact cameras.
In this group you can find pictures taken Sigma AML-1 lens as well as other close up filters.

If you don't have a close-up lens yet, here are some ideas on how to get started:

(1) First of all, you will need the Sigma lens hood adapater, which will allow you to use standard 46mm filters. Often, 46mm filters are not that easy to get or you might have some filters already in, let's say, 52mm. In this case, you can buy a step-up ring and use your 52mm filters (there are many more variations of step-up rings out there, so have a look around).

(2) Next, you need a special filter called "magnifying lens". You have several choises:
- Sigma AML-1: A close-up lens specially designed for your Sigma DP1 or DP2, which allows focusing distance from 20 to 33cm.
- Hoya, Kenko or other manufacturers offer close-up lenses in various magnifications. Some users i.e. stack together 2+ and 4+ lenses to achieve higher magnigication. Common close-up lenses are +2,+4,+6 and +10.
