Get Closer to What You Love


When you are falling in love with someone, you want to get closer to them. You want to share things together. The same is true when taking a picture. Sometimes you want to take a closer look, maybe catch a glimpse of something that you’d never seen before. For this, you need the macro mode.

When you first started taking pictures with a compact digital camera, you probably noticed that object sometimes blur close up. In fact, when they switch from a compact camera to a mirrorless or DSLR camera, that’s why people often purchase a macro lens. They want to capture a more detailed and lively look at the objects they love.

In the NX lens lineup, the 60mm F2.8 macro lens satisfies just such a need. Many NX users are fascinated with this lens thanks to its surprisingly clear and sharp pictures. Let’s discover what’s so magical and attractive about the macro lens.

The same objects look totally different from close up
How do you describe the image of flowers? Is it a series of petals attached to a stem? Or is it lone figure trembling in the wind? If you zoom in on a flower with a macro lens, you will see their distinctiveness, the aspects that have made them a symbol of beauty.
