Hi there! I have been filming cymatics with a water droplet over a loud speaker with different frequencies being projected through it. The footage I have is stunning, but the (+20) macro close-up lens I have been using can only get so close with my T2i and kit lens.
I've seen you recommend the Raynox DCR-250. Is this more powerful than the (+20) macro close-up lens? I am on a very limited budget so before I spend $80 I really need to be certain this is the best lens to buy.
As things stand the (+20) was able to magnify to a great degree, but when I stretch the footage out to fill my screen in Final Cut it looses definition and for me the whole point is to film the sacred geometry that is appearing in the water droplet.
Is it possible to attach the (+20) I have to the front of the Raynox DCR-250 for greater magnification? I'm guessing that I'll be able to attach the Raynox DCR-250 to the front of my current macro lens because of the clip mechanism.
Also, is there a macro button on the kit lens? Thank you so much for answering this. I do appreciate it!
