Are those filters just for SLR cameras or can they be used for 
digital cameras?
I have found that I am not completely satisfied with most closeups I 
take with my Kodak DC4800. Seems sometimes I just cannot get close 
enough. If you get too close, the picture is blurry. You have to keep 
a few feet distance.
I have experimented with the camera, and find that if I put the 'F 
number' whatever that is, on F8 I get the best up close shots. I'm

getting too technical, let me say that most cameras are not equipped 
with lenses for taking close-ups, but it's simple to remedy. I bought 
an inexpensive set of "filters" that screw on the front of my camera 
lens. They look like a lens, but you need to ask for magnifying 
filters. It's been a while since I've used a regular camera but I 
think I liked the +2 filter for closeups. Mine came in a set of three 
and the cost was about $22. I got some really great pictures. I use a 
digital camera now, but I still liked the pictures I got from the old 
totally manual SLR camera. Pearl
