Frugal because its way less costly than a proper MACRO lens and You need patience because due to narrow DOF (at higher zoom) and moving subject, you have to take multiple shots to get satisfactory Image. Offcourse you will need a Tripod and an ample light source (in order to widen the DOF, we need to shorten the aperture size thus we need pretty good amount of light, but that holds true for a macro lens too)
My Observation :
I used this snap on Lens on my 50mm prime and 18-135mm all in one lens.
With 50mm it worked well but didn't get much magnification so I used extension tubes.
7mm extension tube + 50mm + Tripod + Good Light + static object = nice results
With 18-135 mm, @135 I observed some vignetting as the lens thread is 67mm (wider than 50mm lens), I think It should work well with any P&S ultra zoom camera and any DSLR lens having 150+ focal length.
1. Easy to use
2. Nice optical quality
1. Vignetting at small focal length. Ideal for 150+ zoom lenses
Vignetting will almost always happen so just focus on good flash system for photography.
I use DCR 250 with 100mm Macro, and results were very good after few experiments

I was torn between getting the 150 and the 250, but in the end opted for the 250 as I wanted to try larger magnification ratios.
I have to say that I was nervous as many were saying that it takes time to get used to, however what I found was that putting it onto a zoom (14-140) gave you a huge range of options from a little enlarged, to gosh!
The adaptor just clips onto the front of your existing camera lens.
At minimum zoom there seems to be sever vignetting, however with only a little zooming this disappears.
You vary the amount of magnification by zooming your lens in and out, and I found it best to switch to manual focus and move the camera in and out, which was not too difficult.
Attached is a photo of a flower about 2mm in size, I am really pleased with this shot as it was hand held with little composition.
In summary, I am very pleased and would recommend it for anyone who wants to have a go at Macro.
The Raynox DCR-250 Macro Attachment gives +8 dioptres of magnification. This corresponded to about 1.5 x life size on my Sony RX10 III at full zoom. I was pleased with this as previously the camera could only do 0.2 x life size.
Using the attachment takes some practice and so don’t expect amazing results straight away. Autofocus didn’t work for me and I resorted to manual focus on a tripod. The depth of focus is extremely shallow and so some rocking backwards and forwards is needed to get your shot. I used a tripod and focus rail to get good results. I wouldn’t like to use this for field work as it is difficult to obtain focus. The depth of focus is so shallow that it is possible to miss the focal plane and then you have to try and find focus about 15-20cm from the subject (where focus can be achieved). It seems like hard work and it does take some time to get used to it, but I was pleased with the results I achieved. If you want to increase your chances of ‘getting the shot’ you can use burst mode whilst gently rocking focus in and out.
In general image quality was okay and perfectly acceptable. It’s not as good as a genuine macro lens, but it costs a fraction of the price. I did find some purple fringing in my images that I removed in post.
The Raynox DCR-250 Macro Attachment comes with lens caps and with its own lens attachment. It is packaged in a small box to keep everything together.
I recommend this item, but can’t stress enough that practice and a tripod/focus rail are a must for good results.
Simple to attach and the adapter seems rhobust. It arrives in a large plastic box jewel case with sponge seperating it from the base.
It is everything I have expected from looking at the Raynox 250 image pool on Flickr.
Be aware also a lot of these great macro shots with the Raynox 250 in this Flickr pool is not just using the lens, it is certinally an enabler to great shots, but, a lot of learning and skill is used to achieve these kind of results.
This coupled with extension tubes will increase magnification signifigantly (I use Polariod's electrical contact extension tubes, awesome value for money)..
I strongly recommend you use this dioptre lens with a prime lens for optimal sharpness.
Be aware, with all macro photography, the Depth of Field is shallow, approaching razor thin, this is not a fault of any of the lenses or attachments, this is a byproduct of the mechanics of Macro photography and exists on all types of lenses. So I recommend a small tripod such as the Slik mini tripods for getting low, also a cable release will be handy to prevent shake and perhaps a light source if there is not enough light or you run a small focal length lens and have to get very close, this is why it is recommend you use approximately a 100-200mm prime lens for macro shots (Canon 200mm L lens is a real gem of a bargin here).
I firmly believe this Raynox 250 is worth it's weight in gold (39.00 GBP).
