  • Macro photography on the cheap

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - cheap
    - works as advertised
    - metal

    Cons:

    - need to learn how to mount it properly
    - sharp edges
    - paint peels off

    OtherThoughts:

    Make sure you mount it properly and the lock is engaging. If it is mounted properly, both the tube and the lens will NOT rotate. You will be able to take it off only if you disengage the lock.
    Aperture setting has to be done manually, so works well with lenses having an aperture ring, like the 50mm 1.8

    Bottomline:

    Unbeatable fun for the price. Extremely handy for clicking macros without spending too much.
