3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Alternative Than A Macro Lens, June 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fotodiox Canon EOS Macro Extension Tube Set for Extreme Close-Ups (Camera)
This extension tube works great if you don't wanna spend a ton of money on a macro lens. However, there are no electronic contacts so you're camera can't communicate with the lens; therefore, you lose auto focusing and aperture control. I don't use auto focus much so that wasn't a big deal, but the loss of aperture control is kind of a bummer. Reason being, since you can't control the aperture, if you are shooting in the middle of the day more times than not you're picture is going to be get blown out by sunlight. Although, I have had avoided this by using faster shutter speeds and eventually buying a neutral density filter. So keep in mind, you get what you pay for.

I reccomend using this little trick: put the lens on the camera, set the aperature and then hold the DOF preview button as you remove the lens. The lens will remain at the aperature the camera set. I currently use the "reverse the lens" method for macro and this is how I set aperature.
