5.0 out of 5 stars It's cheap and it works!, 11 May 2009
This review is from: MACRO EXTENSION Full Set TUBES Fits CANON EOS SLR & DSLR,1D 1Ds 7D 6D 5D 10D 20D 30D 40D,50D,60D,70D,100D,500D,550D,600D,650D,700D,1000D,1100D 1200D Camera DSLR. (Electronics)
Great product - allows you to shoot much much closer! Of course you lose autofocus, IS and aperture control (although depth of field button trick fixes this last problem - see other reviews), but for a tenner (and that's with delivery) it does a great job.
If you want a serious tool for macro photography, then this is probably not a product for you - using it all the time could get a little tedious, but for an occasional shoot it works just fine. To get a decent DOF you'd have to stop the lens A LOT, so the exposure time goes up hence a tripod /some sort of stabilising device eg. desk, floor ;)/ is pretty much a necessity. Also if you don't use one, focusing will get tricky/impossible.
If you're not sure macro photography is for you, but want to try without spending a lot on a macro lense - buy this! You won't regret it!
