    Macro Extension Tubes

    by magnum » Fri Jan 11, 2013 5:06 pm

    Just getting into doing a bit of macro photography. What do you recommend in the way of extension tubes for Canon 7D and 600D? Also what lenses do you recommend with these tubes?

    Any or all tubes do pretty much the same job they are just an extension

    A macro lens is the best option or just a 50mm or slight tele lens if you do not have a macro

    Any tube that has the electrical connections to maintain Auto-focus and apeture control will do what you need. Canon and Kenko spring to mind.

    Lens choice is a personal thing, and you will need to research that for yourself, weighing up what you need and which lens best suits.
