The 35mm MicroExplorer system allows you to simply snap the 6x or 12x lens onto your zoom lens and immediately discover the intricate detail present, but often overlooked, in everyday objects. You will expand your photographic horizons in ways you may never have imagined, and your photograph will come alive with a wealth of undiscovered beauty.

Imagine being able to view and capture the microscopic world that exists, unseen, all around you. No expensive microscope or complicated camera adapters are necessary, just the 35mm MicroExplorer and your telephoto zoom lens. You will be thrilled to discover the majestic microstructures present in all sorts of materials found in your home and nature. And the educational and scientific applications are endless. A blade of grass, a drop of water, even a sprinkle of salt all becomes fascinating new territories to explore and photograph with the RAYNOX 35mm MicroExplorer system.

Exposing the conversion lens to a warm atmosphere in an instant way from the cold area may create some dew on and inside the lens. When it happened inside the lens, keep the lens in a dry area till the dew disappear before using. Repeating such may leave dirt spot - (mildew) and affect the image.
All of Raynox conversion lenses are proudly made in Japan. At our owned manufacturing subsidiary, every stage of production is rigorously checked and tested so that the lens elements compensate effectively for astigmatism, distortion and spherical aberration.... for an excellent image quality.
The lens is neither made for dust-free nor moisture/water-proof.
