Canon Macro Lens Hack (using 35-80mm EF Lens)

I read on this photography forum how to create a simple and cheap macro lens using an old Canon EF lens. So I went looking for one on eBay and luckily I found a suitable lens for sale that was faulty. So I bought it for the amazingly cheap price of £8 (+£4 P&P) and waited for the postman to arrive. I was very pleased to discover that the lens was in fact in perfectly good working order and it was also an older style lens which meant I could simply unscrew it apart to get the desired effect and then put it all back together when I was finished.

So In this video I show how you can turn a Canon EF 35-80mm lens into a macro lens. This is the older style lens and the process is really easy and completely reversible. On the Mark II & Mark III lenses, the outer element is secured by screws and it is a bit more complicated to remove.

All macro pictures featured in this video were taken on a Canon EOS 600D with the adapted 35-80mm macro lens with no post processing. They are the native shots straight from the camera.
