Hasselblad has announced a new macro converter for its cameras.

The macro converter is designed to be used with wide angle lenses to give a better close up range. It attaches between lens and camera, and the function is similar to a 6.5mm extension tube, but the optical system of the converter provides much better performance.

Barry Makariou is a still life photographer who has used the macro converter. “I've had my H4D-40 now for nearly 2 years and specialise in product photography. Ever since I've had the camera, I've craved for a wider macro lens so I can create a more dramatic effect with some of the smaller items I shoot and utilise the whole frame better. The 120mm macro is great but with something like a phone at an acute angle it can shorten it too much and can't be used with the HTS. It's great that the Hasselblad Macro Converter can be used with not only the wider lenses but also with the HTS adapter, which is vital for great depth of field. This now gives me ultimate control that I was after." he said.

The macro converter is priced at £1,195 excluding VAT. For more information, visit the Hasselblad website.
