Listing Detail Tabs

Set of 3 macro tubes for Canon SLRs and DSLRs, compatible with EF-S lenses. Complete with drawstring pouch and caps for both ends, plus comprehensive instructions. These are the same item that others on TradeMe are selling for around $80 to $100 a set. These are not drop shipped from China - they are in stock in NZ, and we ship daily.

Unlike some very cheap manual macro tubes, these include electrical contacts allowing your camera body to maintain full control of your lens so that autofocus, and aperture adjustment can still be used. This is very important, particularly if your lens is one of the many nowadays that does not have a manual aperture ring. Macro tubes without electrical contact give you no control at all over aperture with such lenses, which means you have zero control of depth of field.

These tubes fit between camera body and lens. They can be used individually or stacked, giving you a total of 7 configurations. They provide magnification by allowing your camera to focus on subjects much closer to the lens than usual - exact distance range and magnification depends on your lens and the combination of tubes you use, but the instructions include a handy chart to guide you. To get an idea of what's possible, look at the bottom of the listing photo. It shows some quick example shots of a paper clip taken with and without macro tubes. These shots were taken handheld with a Canon 600D with standard 18-55 kit lens set at 55mm. Automatic program ("P") mode and autofocus were used. The shots are all uncropped full images and are taken from the closest point that autofocus would work. From left to right the shots are:
1. Standard lens, no macro tube used
2. Smallest macro tube
3. Medium macro tube
4. Large macro tube
5. All 3 tubes stacked.
