There’s a Nikon version.

Pipin Te Boekhorst says:

Hallo Phil … Is this extention tube suitable for canon 600D? Thanks

vevolander says:

Great!

balancinggargoyle says:

if you press and hold the aperture preview button while removing the lens the aperture blades will remain in position. I do it for time lapse.

Dasun Madusanka says:

thank you very much !

You can get very cheap Automatic Extension tubes now, the cheapest I found are as little as $62, I’m not sure of the conversion rate but go to your eBay and just type in “auto extension tubes ” and the camera brand you use after that.

NiveusLuxLucis says:

There is a way to set the aperture and not having to shoot open. Have the lens on the camera and set the aperture, then press preview DOF button and whilst holding, remove the lens. The aperture is now fixed to the aperture set 🙂

Excellent video. In working with the Nikon D3000 when in manual mode I have put on several extension tubes 4 in all totaling 111mm. Now when in manual mode and manual focus mode with the Nikkor lens, 18-55, it will automatically stop down the lens to its maximum depth of field at f36..! Quite a bugger for quality control, have to have the window open and a number of flood lamps. But I have had great success in macro photography with extension tubes. viewbug.com/photo/2121520 Thanks

You mean a macro filter? I’ve heard they distort too much the corners, and I had a cheap one that made the corners look like some blur vignetting lol… I’m getting some extension tubes to see how they work on a quite nice lense, the ef-s 15-85mm

Sebastian Vergara says:

Just an advice from myself to everyone, you can make a greater depth of field by first closing the aperture of the lense without the tubes, then just take off the lense without turning off the camera, (the camera will automatically close the mirror so dust shouln’t be a problem) and the lense will keep that closed aperture, of course you will get much less light, but that’s why you’d use a tripod 😉

So beware!!! HAHAHHAHAMA UHAHHAHMHAHAH MUAHAHAH

Phillip McCordall says:

Ahh. the nifty fifty !!This lens is incredibly sharp and incredibly cheap, every Canon man should have one, although it feels like a cheap lens, the results are as good as many at 5 times the price, it would be great with the 60D

Andrew Boyle says:

Hi Phil, I’ve been a huge fan of your’s from the start and just need a bit of advice from you. I currently own a Tamron 18-270mm telephoto lens, but the Canon 50mm 1.8 prime lens really intrigues me for many reasons. My original proposal was to get the 50mm, but reconsiderations have been getting in the way. For example, I love the wide open aperture, but my crop censored camera (60d) would increase the lens to somewhere around 80mm. Do you think my lens combination would be reasonable? Thanks!

DCUPtoejuice says:

I like the other way, flip your wide angle around

LiloVLOG says:

I see… some people use 4 filters on the front… I was thinking about only one filter, 10x… because I know with the extension tubes you have to be REALLY close to the subject. Well, I already purchase one filter 10x and the extension tube… I will test when arrive and I will make a video about it! Thanks for the answer!

Phillip McCordall says:

I’m sorry,I’ve no experience of that but I’m pretty sure the distance between the subject and lens wouldn’t be sufficient.

LiloVLOG says:

Hi! Nice video! I have a question… you already tested the extension tube with a 18-55mm standard lens with a Close Up Filter x10? The macro with only the extension is AMAZING… I wanna know if I put two Macro gadgets, the extension tube and close up filter, if it will maximize the potential of the macro. Thanks for the vid!

amazinggadgets says:

they do make ones with the electrical contacts now…

Thnxx

Phillip McCordall says:

24-85mm 70-200mm

gary ong says:

your lens is 18-135?


Phillip McCordall says:

I would guess the tubes ,but it will all depend on lenses etc.
Sorry but i’ve never used a reversing ring.haven’t used a reversing ring for a while.

bronkaHD says:

thanks! but i have a question, i tested the reversed lenses in videomode (because its the only way to test without the reversed ring) and i use the 1.4 50mm and the 18-55 efs in the 18mm, 1.4 has a great magnification, sharpen great quality, and the 18mm has an magnification amazing, its like 10 times more than the 50mm but which has the larger magnification, the reversed ring or the extension tube? i cant figure out how to know this without buying the extension tube :/ thanks

Phillip McCordall says:

I prefer the extension rings, the non electronic ones don’t allow aperture control, but do allow focus although not auto focus of course.
There is a way of stopping down with the non auto rings, you press the preview aperture button then with it pressed remove the lens the put it back on and it will stay at the aperture you have chosen.
Polariod make some good electronic extension tubes that cost around 60€ available on Amazon I use those.

bronkaHD says:

nice video! i have and standard efs 18-55 and an 50mm 1.5 usm,and i dont know which technique i should use,the inversed ring or the 10€ extension tube. some people say that with the reversed ring,the front part of the lenses can be damage because was not made to support the weight of the lenses, and the 1.4 50mm its a little bit heavy. so im interested more on extension tube, but some people say that with an non-electronic extension tube i cant use the ring of my lenses to focus. its that true?

Wow! Easy peasy:)
Thanks:)

Mihai Albu says:

The aperture of the lense can be “controled” in this way: set your desired F number, push and keep pressed the DOF preview button, near the lense, while removing the lense from te body. So the Aperture will remain locked.I’m sorry if this topic was also discussed.

Phillip McCordall says:

There”s another video on automatic extension tubes that show them used with different lenses ,this may help, I think it was a 24-85 in the film but any lens will work.
