Macro lenses get you up close and personal with the subjects of your photos, magnifying them to create sharp images packed with detail. Commonly used to capture minute details, macro lenses are perfect for photographs of flowers, insects and other animals, jewelry, food, and even portraiture -- the possibilities are endless. You can also use a macro lens to capture small details on larger subjects to highlight artistic elements or create abstract images. A macro lens takes the headache out of trying to capture a close-up image when your camera struggles to autofocus.

Macro camera lenses have a magnification ratio of at least 1:1, and can focus on subjects at least 30 cm away or closer. You can, however, also use your macro lens like a regular camera lens to take photos of subjects farther away, though you will likely sacrifice a little image sharpness on more distant shots. That's because the macro lens is optimized with a flatter focusing plane that allows sharp image quality edge-to-edge close-up, but can slightly narrow the depth of field and depth of focus farther away. Shop Samy's Camera for a wide selection of Sony, Nikon, and Canon macro lenses, as well as third-party lenses from Sigma, Tamron and more.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


Do You Need a Lot of Light with a Macro Lens?

Lighting is important to the composition of any photo, but even more so with macro photography. If you?re not gifted with good natural light when you need to take a shot, make sure you have a flash for your camera or another source of lighting.

What Type of Focus Field Does a Macro Camera Lens Have?

A macro camera lens has a flat focus field, unlike a typical camera lens with a curved field. The curved focus field is clearer in the center than at the edge of the frame, but a macro lens' flat field focus allows for a clear, sharp image from edge to edge.

What Is the Magnification Ratio in Macro Lenses?

Macro lenses have a minimum magnification ratio of 1:1, meaning the size of the image on the camera sensor is the same as the actual size of the subject. This is what allows for the detailed, life-sized images that macro lenses are known for.

Is Depth of Field Narrower in Macro Photography?

Yes, the depth of field is generally narrower in macro photography due to the close distance between the lens and the subject. This makes it critical to manage focus carefully to ensure the desired parts of the subject are in sharp focus.

Can You Use a Macro Lens for Normal Photography?

Yes, you can use a macro lens for general photography, although there are some caveats to consider. Macro lenses are optimized for close focusing distances and often have excellent optical quality, so they can be very effective for capturing detail-rich images. Whether or not it is the best tool for the job will depend on your specific needs and the subjects you typically photograph.

Can I Use Macro Lenses for Portrait Photography?

While primarily designed for close-up photography, macro lenses can be used for portraiture. The lens will capture fine details and textures, but keep in mind that the depth of field will be narrower than typical portrait lenses.

How Important is Stabilization in Macro Photography?

Stabilization is highly important in macro photography due to the close distances and high magnification. Even minor movements can cause blur, so using a tripod or in-camera stabilization features can be highly beneficial.
