A macro extension tube is a wonderful substitution to expensive macro lenses. It maintains the original optical quality while transforming the lens into a macro lens. It is far more desired then the add-on close-up lenses, which will alter the optical quality. The extension tube will work with all Canon EOS cameras, digital or film.
The camera mount coupling adapter and lens mount coupling adapter can be used independently of the extension tubes or you can add in the tubes for extreme Macro photography. Because no other optical components are added with this kit, the image preserves the original optical properties of the lens. This is an affordable and simple way to turn your existing lens into a MACRO LENS. This tube set includes a lens-coupling ring and a body-coupling ring; three extension tubes of various sizes are also included to build up to the desired magnification. Life size image can be achieved with this set up. See details specification at the table below. Specs are based on a 50mm f1.4 lens.
(including, but not limited to)
Canon 1d/1ds, Mark II, III, IV, X, C, 5D, 5D Mark II/III, 7D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 60Da

The extension ring set has no electrical contact, so you will have to set your camera in manual focusing and manual exposure, or aperture priority mode for metering.

As far as the product itself, it's pretty nice for the price. Doesn't have the finely machined feel of an expensive lens or filter, but it's not cheap junk either. The threads all turn smoothly with no resistance, and the lens and camera mounts fit tightly.
And as a final note, don't even think about trying to use this without off camera lighting. Even in daylight, the pics will likely turn out underexposed when focused in this closely unless you have some extra lighting to hold up to the subject. The on camera flash is useless when you're focused on something half an inch away from your lens as well.
I use a Canon 70D Ethan had an EF mount. The lens mount piece locks into place and the camera fram mount also locks into place. I achieved the below results with a 50mm lens and all extensions attached. The liquid in the cup is carbonated water.
Since these extension tubes do not have the electrical connections, you will need to mount your lens to your camera and set the apature to the largest setting. Then, turn off your camera, mount the extension tubes to your lens and then to your camera. Now you are ready! Get as close as you can to your subject then back away slowly and manually focus the lens. A tripod is recommended to reduce camera shake for obvious reasons.
The quality of the extension tubes are great! No flaws in the metal.
Don't miss this opportunity for macro photography without having to invest in an expensive lens!
One comment to everyone that has said that they've had trouble getting them off of their camera once snapped in -
If you look at the set you will see the end that attaches to your camera has that small bolt sticking out. You have to push that forward (away from the camera in line with your lens) to get the ring to release from your camera. It is designed to work like it does.
If I had a suggestion for the manufacturer it would be that the little bolt thing-a-ma-doo-dad works ok (once you realize how to get it to release) - using a lever style or something that is angled so that it is easier to get too - and / or - simply putting an arrow with the words push -> to release . . . . would both make it more noticeable aiding the people who buy the product . . . and aiding you by not having them return something as defective after having tried to not destroy their camera getting it off - because you didn't give the most simple description of how to get it to release.)
They do work and work pretty smoothly once you realize what you have to do to get it to release but the other issue with how you have this built is there's not a lot of space between the camera body and your little bolt head.
Anyone considering buying these - no worries they seem to work just fine but it's pretty important to know how to get the thing to release - and that little gizmo is really the only thing about these that isn't what I'd call pretty decent manufacturing. It works it's just kind of crude compared to the rest of the product.
