Technical Details


Product Description

The Kenko Auto Extension Tube Set DG contains three tubes of different length - 12mm, 20mm, and 36mm - which can be used individually or in any combination to obtain the desired magnification. Actual magnification effect changes with each specific lens. This DG Extension tube set has upgraded "Gate-Array IC" circuitry to work better with digital SLR's and some of the digital SLR lenses, like the Nikon DX (e.g. 17-55mm, 10.5mm) digital-only lenses. Extension tubes are designed to enable a lens to focus closer than its normal set minimum focusing distance. Getting closer has the effect of magnifying your subject (making it appear larger in the viewfinder and in your pictures). They are exceptionally useful for macro photography, enabling you to convert almost any lens into a macro lens at a fraction of the cost while maintaining its original optical quality. The extension tubes have no optics. They are mounted in between the camera body and lens to create more distance between the lens and film plane. By moving the lens farther away from the film or CCD sensor in the camera, the lens is forced to focus much closer than normal. The greater the length of the extension tube, the closer the lens can focus. When using the camera's TTL metering system, no exposure compensation will be required (exposure compensation is required for handheld meters). The Kenko Auto Extension Tube Set DG is compatible with Nikon DSLR cameras and F mount lenses and is optimized to work with Autofocus lenses. Kenko's Auto Focus extension tubes are designed with all the circuitry and mechanical coupling to maintain auto focus and TTL auto exposure with most Nikon lenses given there is enough light (at f/5.6 or brighter) to activate the cameras AF system properly.

They have decent build quality. My Nikon lens was able to communicate with my D750 through one, two or all three of these extension tubes. Attached is a photo taken with the 36mm tube and a Nikon 70-200mm f/4G.

I have a Nikon D3200 and just could not get the close up shots I wanted with the kit lens. I could not afford a macro lens and the extension tubes, specifically the Kenko auto set, had been an option mentioned to me by several people. I am new at photography so this review is coming from a novice. Got the tubes and I started to play. My goodness do you get up close. I got some amazing shots at a local garden, I will post a link to my blog where the photos are on display, to give you an idea of how close you can get with these tubes. Being the novice I am I used auto focus, if you are advanced I am sure manual will work better. I will let the photos speak for themselves. All in all I feel this was a good investment.

Extension tubes will auto-focus on my Nikon body, as stated, and they have given me an inexpensive way to emulate macro photography. I had not previously enjoyed this area of photographic art. It brings a much more shallow depth of field that was surprising, but still enjoyable. You must push the image 3-5 f-stops (dependent on what lens and tube you are using) for similar depth of field as obtained without them. I purchased the set in order to obtain closer focus range when shooting butterflies and other small insects.

This worked well with my D90 but lack all the connectors for me to use with my D5100. The connector pins are tree less than the ones on the camera and lenses of the 5100 so you need to operate focus manually. I was hoping to use it with the D5100 but ave to default to the D90.

Unfortunately, I purchased my THIRD set of Kenko extension tubes because my current set work PERFECTLY on my Nikon D300 but will NOT autofocus on either my Nikon D810 or my Nikon D7200... Which have the SAME autofocus system as the Nikon D4, so I suspect they won't autofocus on those bodies either...

After talking to Kenko USA, I was told the firmware/microcode had been updated and the tubes would now WORK PERFECTLY with all the nikon bodies......... NOT SO...
Same problem as with my current set of tubes.

Cheaply made and could not hold up my Zeiss 100mm on my D810. Also, with all 3 tubes in, the mirror was hitting so I took one out. After I heard the noise, I have not put them back on.

Very good, auto-focus works as long as there is enough light.

I prefer to use it with a zoom lens since with a prime the distance object - lens is too critical.
