Contains three plastic tubes of different length (31mm,21mm & 13mm) which can be combined in seven ways to obtain various magnification. Perfect coupling with TTL metering and AE mechanisms. Full auto focusing with Canon EOS Cameras.

1. When using extension tubes the lens will not focus to infinity. The focus range will be greatly limited to a very close focusing distance. 2. There is light fall off when using any extension tube, sometimes the equivalent of 3 f-stops of light is lost when using multiple extension tubes together. This light lost can affect the camera's ability to auto focus. Manual focusing is recommended should the lens begin to "hunt" (not lock onto the subject). 3. Auto Extension Tubes are not auto focus compatible with Canon EF-S lenses

Inexpensive extension tubes, work great!

I've used these tubes with a variety of lenses to shoot very close macro shots of bugs and spiders. These extension tubes will reduce the focal range of your lens, in most cases you will not be able to focus on any object more than a foot away. They allow auto focus with every AF lens I've tested, but at that close it's usually easier to manual focus anyway. Check out my samples, these tubes get you close!

Poor Functionality

My 5D Mark II had communication problems with the tubes connected. The f-stop would not engage properly and data screen eventually registered ERR while locking up the camera. I had to remove batteries to bring back functionality. Not happy.

Good Starter set

By

from Rural Missouri  -  Semi-pro Photographer

These are a low cost way to try macro photography. I purchased them to combine with a 50 mm 1.8 lens and try macro photography. I'm having a little trouble getting used to the metal tab system used to remove them, but I sure I'll get used to them.

Macro on a budget

By

from Olean, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

New to photography, I was introduced to a Macro lens. After review of my pics I wanted a macro lens. At $900 around Christmas, wife said NO. A friend recommended these extension tubes for my Canon T2i. I purchased these and gave it a whirl. FANTASTIC RESULTS. I had no other special equipment. Put my Camera in full auto and took pics... Can't wait for warmer temps to take it outside.

Economical but excellent results

By

from Pleasanton, CA  -  Pro Photographer

Attached to a macro or wide angle lens produces extreme, sharp and sometimes abstract close images. Good - inexpensive, light weight. Bad - docking mechanism sticks a bit.

You get what you pay for

By

from Chicago, IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

After just a few months of light use, area that connects to the camera/lens/other tubes started to chip on all three of the tubes. For now, they still mount and work as expected, but I fear that sometime soon, they won't mount, a part will break off into my camera, or both. I'd suggest skipping this "budget" item choice and spending the extra money for tubes with a metal mount.

Quality Product for Great Price

By

from Homer, La  -  Photo Enthusiast

Very well constructed and creates the effect that I want. No light leaks that I can tell. The mount is very firm. It is a little difficult to thread, but that's a very minor issue. Overall, great product for someone wanting to get into macro photography without spending hundreds upon hundreds.

Cheap and it works

By

from Midwest U.S.A.  -  Photo Enthusiast

They are cheaper than a dedicated macro lense and they work.

Questions about this item:

Margaret T  Will this work with my Canon EOS Rebel?
THOMAS T  the extension tube for the canon eos will work on the canon eos
Menlyn N  Are these compitable with Canon 60D. I have a 60D with with 18-135 kit lense.. Will these tubes help get proper Macro Shots?
WAYNE L  As far as Im aware the mounting should be compatible. Though it will give you an incredibly small depth of field so a tripod is pretty much a necessity for a clear shot
Shopper  will these lenses work on the canon 2ti with AF lenses?
CARY S  Yes I'm sure they will. I have the T1i and I'm very happy. They are very easy to use, and have taken some great shots. Can't beat the price!
