CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - This new category of digital Compact System Cameras with interchangeable lenses was mislabeled for a time as "Mirrorless Cameras" by those forgetting about "Mirrorless" Rangefinder cameras.  Such confusion is easily understandable, since interchangeable rangefinder cameras were only recently introduced in 1932.  hmm.    CSC or Compact System Camera is probably the best category description to date, although I am fond of the old RFF desigation of  CEVIL  indicating Compact Electronic Viewfidner Interchangeable Lens.   This forum is here at RFF because via adapters these cameras offer an inexpensive way to use rangefinder lenses on digital cameras -- in addition of just about every 35mm SLR lens you can think of.  All  offer the photo enthusiast an incredible array of adopted lenses which was not possible before these new digital formats.   This group continues to grow in popularity and new camera models!

Focus Closer with any CEVIL camera - adapted lenses or not

Folks,

this is old news to many,
but will be news to newbies,

With ANY CEVIL camera that has live view (are there any which don't have it?) including but not limited to M43 and NEX cameras, and all of their competitors ...

Using ANY lens, native lens mount or adapted lens via adapters...


To FOCUS CLOSER, MUCH CLOSER

Just add CLOSE UP LENSES to your lens and then focus by live view!

Close up lenses look like regular screw in filters and are usually sold in an inexpensive set of 3 by the filter size.

see info on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Close-up_filter

easily found on ebay http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=clo....c0.m270.l1313

Do you mean so you can focus closer like a macro or do you mean you can focus better?

One more tip: if you want the best image quality, stick to using achromat close-up lenses.
