Coupling rings

The Perfect Addition for Photographers

In photography, you can use a coupling ring to connect two lenses together and achieve comparable magnification ratios. This allows you to capture impressive shots with remarkable sharpness and detail - all without expensive equipment.

If you want to expand your photographic gear with macro lenses, you don't necessarily have to dig deep into your pockets. With a coupling ring and two existing lenses, you can create impressive macro shots - even with older or non-compatible third-party lenses. The lens on the object side acts as a close-up lens and often delivers better optical performance. All settings are made on the rear lens, while the front lens only affects the maximum aperture. This method allows you to create impressive macro shots with minimal effort.

A coupling ring differs from a reverse ring (retro adapter) by having two external threads, which are intended for the filter threads of the lenses. In contrast, the reverse ring has only one external thread for the filter and a connection to the camera mount.

To achieve impressive macro photos using coupling rings, it is recommended to use prime lenses and avoid zoom lenses. Ensure that the aperture of the lens on the camera side is not smaller than that on the lens side to avoid vignetting. Set the aperture of the front lens to its maximum. The magnification ratio M is determined by the ratio of the focal length of the lens on the camera side to the focal length of the lens on the lens side (for example: camera side f=105mm, lens side f=35mm, M=3:1). To ensure that the front lens is securely attached, it should not be too large or heavy, as it is held only by the filter threads.

So, what are you waiting for? Explore the versatile possibilities that our coupling rings offer.

Simply use the "Filter" function to quickly find the appropriate coupling ring: just select the desired diameter and display the suitable coupling ring.
