You bought a new camera and an underwater camera housing to go with it. You couldn't wait to go diving and start photographing the exotic marine life, but now you are back above the surface the results aren't quite what you were expecting. If so, you are not alone.
Some of the most magnificent photographs taken underwater are close-up images of small fish, nudibranchs, corals, flatworms, eyes of larger fish and more. Considering the fact that macro photography is relatively easy to compose with respect to exposure, lighting and focus settings, it is often the most popular type of photography among beginner photographers.
Most compact digital cameras feature a minimum focus distance that enables sharp images only to a certain extent and within a certain distance from the subject. For this reason, many of your close-up images might turn out to be blurred, and zooming in usually only makes the problem worse.
The SharpEye Lens M46 is an accessory macro lens which fits over the housing's port and can be installed and removed during the course of the dive. Image quality increases greatly when you move in close and eliminate as much water as possible between you and your subject. This macro lens allows you to get really close to very small marine creatures.
It is perfect for shooting close-up images of fish, corals, textures and more. The macro lens magnifies the subject and enables the camera to focus on short distances for creating super sharp images. It can be mounted on 55/46mm threaded lens ports or any other lens port by using a compatible adaptor.
Lens is a hard coated single Aspherical element which will work only underwater.The underwater focal length is 333 mm. Lens Barrel is a lightweight .9 oz (26g) corrosion resistant black anodized aluminum design with a 55mm threaded mount, and Includes M46 to M55 Step-up Ring.

Comments about Fantasea 5127 SharpEye Lens M46:
This is advertised as a 46mm threaded lens with a 55mm step up adapter. It's actually a 55mm threaded lens with a 46mm step down adapter. I was hoping to not need any adapter for my camera and lenses. This is mainly a critique for the manufacturer, after all, they did name the product for the 46mm threads. No other Fantasea Line "46 series" filter or lens requires an adapter.
