It's cheap and works great – Macro Extension Tube/Ring for Nikon SLR/DSLR Cameras Reviews

posted by elezeta on 09/18/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
1) 3 different segments to fit your needs.
2) Fits great in my Nikon D90 (previously removing the little screw. See purkinje17 post: http://www.dealextreme.com/forums/Forums.dx/Page.2~Forum.12458~threadid.632628
3) It's cheap
4) Built in metal
5) Take a look at the photos I've taken with the tubes and published in DX
Cons:
1) Take off the tiny little screw in the camera mounting segment because you'll probably have troubles then to demount it.
2) Sharped edges.
3) Doesn't have instructions but it's easy to figure out how it works.
Other:
It's safe to mount it in your camera but only after taking the screw off from the mounting segment.
Works great with the cheap Nikkor 50mm 1.8F D lens. You've to use it analogically, I mean even the aperture have to be set from the lens with the aperture ring.
In order to set a decent deep of field, you've to close aperture at least up to 8F meaning you need more light to get to the subject.
See the photos I took and I posted here of the pictures I took using the three segments.
Bottomline:
Great deal if you want to take macro photos and you don't want to buy expensive gears.
It's not easy but it's challenging.
