Very close focusing – Macro Extension Tube/Ring for Canon SLR/DSLR Cameras Reviews

posted by AXLMAN on 05/26/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
I was waiting for this item long time ago, with the hope that DX has it avaliable!!!
The build quality is good enough to an amateur photographer, remember that this is not a professional tool, it is just a set of tubes that helps you to make good maro-photography.
Using the top distance, the focus distance is very very close, and if you are using a good lense, and good lighting, the pictures are good.
Cons:
The EOS mounts in to the lens side has no blocking, so you have to grap the tubes when you want to change the lens, if not, instead of taking out the lens you will take out the tube thread.
Other:
Is not Autofocus, but none (excepting the very expensive ones, that has some electronic) has it, and remember, macro-photograpy does not require a fast focusing...
Bottomline:
Good buy in DX
