  • Perfect

    posted by nornator

    Great stuff, light weight, good looking. There is no wobbling, all is firmly tightened
    Extension tube are just empty tube, so why buy a 200$ dollars set when a 35$ one is as effective ?It is all in plastic, for me it is a pro because it give the set very light weight, and this is very important for taking macros pictures. Maybe for some people is a con...
    don't even think about buying a more expensive set, this one is perfect
  • works fine, but not 100%

    posted by Bgenevcius

    The product is very cheap and it does what it is supposed to do.The product came to me in about 20 day, which I consider fair enough.
    I didn't realize that I would lose control over the aperture of the lens. Therefore it will work perfectly only in a lens with manual control of aperture.
    The product is good, but you shouldn't buy it if you don't have a lens with manual control of aperture.The price is fair.
  • very usefull if you want to take macro pictures

    - very light. made of plastic and aluminium make it prety resistant and light.- the contacts work well so you can manipulate the aperture and the focus. even that the focus is not going to work when you use to much extensions, because in general the image is goin to be blur. that is what happen when taking macro pictures.- the magnification is very impresive
    the tubes are very good and cheap, so they are perfect to start making macro photography.
    I recomend it if you want to explore the macro photography without expending too much
  • Great value, basic functionality

    Amazing value for money
    Nicely finished
    Include five individually machined pieces
    Mounts to camera and lens OK
    Because of the way the lens mount is designed, your lens will be permanently stopped down about half-way when it is connected to this (aperture half closed). This isn't too bad for actually taking photos, but the view through the viewfinder is quite dark and hard to focus, and often in macro work you'd want a smaller aperture to increase depth of field.
    You also need to make sure your camera body will allow you to take a photo with no lens fitted (some won't), as the camera can no longer detect the lens.
    I had an old Minolta manual focus lens (with a ring to set aperture), so bought a second set of tubes (Minolta MD type), hoping I could just screw the lens mount to this set. The diameter turned out to be slightly smaller, so they can't be directly mated, but I found I could press-fit the the MD lens mount into the smallest ring from this set. Now I get full control over aperture!
    If you want full functionality with a Sony lens, there is a much more expensive extension tube set that provides this. But for occasional use, this set will do the job OK (especially if you adapt it to accept an older lens with manual aperture control).
