The Kenko tubes are solidly built and fit together tightly with the Canon 400D body and EF lenses I've used them with. In fact the body fit is *very* tight, almost too much so, though in practice I've not seen any damage or marks on the Canon body mount.
All the usual lens auto-focus and auto exposure stuff continues to work, though as you'd expect with macro photography it's better to rely on manual focus and use a tripod.
The three tubes can be combined, and with a 50mm lens can give a magnification factor of up to 1.47 which is more than adequate for most circumstances. Combined with the cheap but effective 50mm F1.8 lens it makes a pretty good setup. Of course you can use other lenses, the limiting factor will be how close you have to get to the subject, and the available light. Of course this is where a specialised macro lens comes in...
There's an instruction leaflet which, while it's only a single sheet of paper, does manage to convey all the information you'll need to be able to make effective use of the tube set.
Right, on with my review.
In my quest to improve my photomicrography skills using a Canon 1100D and Meiji EMZ 13TR microscope I decided to learn more basic techniques, in particular macro photography to more familiarise myself with the camera and its various functions. My first purchase was a set of four dioptre filters (also known as close up lenses) of the type that simply screw onto the end of a lens as per a normal filter. These were great fun and a great way to play around with macro in its most basic form. It was during this time that I started to be bitten by the macro bug and wanted more!
I had read about reverse lens macro where one attaches (via a ring adapter specific to one's camera and lens chosen) a lens, any lens, backwards to the camera. I have a set of old Practika Pentacon lenses that were waiting to be dropped off to Oxfam as I had no use for them....or so I thought.
Once I had acquired a reverse lens adapter (£2:99 via Ebay) I gave it a go.....WOW! I found the 28mm wide angle lens gave the best results and was extremely pleased with my pictures. It was at this Point I wanted yet more so started looking into extension tubes.
Having trawled the offerings on Amazon and read many horror stories regards the cheapo sets of tubes I thought I really didn't need the hassle of having tubes that worked when they pleased due to poor workmanship/quality control (read made in China). Enter the Kenko set of tubes.
Not a great deal to say other than repeat what others on here have said. That is they fit very snugly to the camera/lens and are very stable indeed even when all three tubes are stacked together.
By using these tubes in various combinations and the reversed lenses that I have I have taken some really great shots. I have no idea what magnification I am getting but I can say that with all three tubes together and the right lens some amazingly detailed shots are possible.
Due to the (expected) lack of depth of field I generally like to take images for stacking using both Helicon Focus and Zerene Stacker. I have posted a few pictures on here so please do take a look.
My next purchase (not for quite a while) will be a dedicated Canon macro lens but for anyone wishing to get some very reasonable macro shots then you could do a lot worse than get a set of Kenko tubes....you won't be disappointed.
These tubes carry electronics and focus drive through. With closeup I tend to use manual focus as depth of field is so small.
I like the latches for the locking of lens and tube. The button is large and robust without getting in the way. The tubes are of a good wall thickness and have metal locking rings. These seem to be quality units.
