  • Macro Extension Tubes

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    I was really impressed with these. Solid and well made they screw together to allow you to vary focal length. If you're looking for a way to start experimenting with Macro Photography, these are the best place to start, excellent value for money. Used them with the 650d and Kit 18-55mm lens, and was happy with the results.

    Cons:

    The tubes can unscrew them selves during handling, this will allow you to drop your camera lens to the floor, but as long as you watch out for it, and look after your gear it shouldn't happen. As you would expect you loose all automatic focusing, the tubes are tubes only, not wired for full integration with the Camera.

    OtherThoughts:

    Id take these over the lens reversing style fittings.

    Bottomline:

    If you want to get into Macro, I'd start here before forking out the $800-$1500 for a spec lens, and then finding out that it's not your thing.
