Expanding on Michael's answer ...

Thanks very much, Michael, for the explanation, coz I always wondered what those numbers meant exactly :-))

For d2mini, here are 2 links that show you, with sample images, how closeup filters work.

Hope this helps.

Like your grandfather's glasses. This is the most inexpensive and
cost effective way to get macro photography without buying a new
lens. +1 diopter means that you cut 1/2 the distance between your
minimum focal distance of your lens to the subject and +2 means you
cut it by 3/4. +4 means you cut it by 7/8.

Hope that make sense.
