    Sweet effect

    posted by OlemVolle on 02/03/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    A cheap way to achieve great looking macro images without the need of an expensive macro lens. Solid build and convenient with the option to screw off the rings and adjust it's length. (tried out with 50mm f1.2, very narrow depth of field, but it looks great.
    Cons:
    As of now I don't have any. Further testing and usage will reveal if there are any downsides with this technique.

    For closer-up shots

    posted by Zsolt82 on 12/21/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The tubes are made of metal, so you don't have to worry about breaking them. Fitting the tubes is easy enough, so it can be done quite quickly.
    Cons:
    The packaging could have been better to be honest; the box is just big enough and it looked quite used and abused when I got it...
