  • Decent for experimentation

    Pros:

    It'll serve for some experimentation, but don't expect to produce professional results. It did fit on my Nikon D60 just fine, but of course it's not "smooth," it's a rough fit if you follow. rough metal to metal, I was slightly worried I'd get metal bits in my camera. Hasn't happened though.

    Cons:

    Although this may be true for all extension tubes in this category, (I haven't used others), these seemed to produce poor results. But for the price.. it's worth a little fun. Watch for screws on the product, you don't want to get it stuck on your camera. Hasn't happened with me but it might jam or something.

    OtherThoughts:

    I had a lot of fun taking SUPER close up shots of stamps and money and coins and such - but it's extremely hard to use.

    Bottomline:

    Fun to play with for the price, but I'm buying macro filters for my lenses now - I think they'll provide MUCH better results for only slightly more cost, and won't require me taking 50+ photos to get one in focus since I can still autofocus, unlike with these.
