Extension tubes for use with Canon EOS digital SLR cameras for the price of £22.49! Jessops branded, rrp of £74.99, more expensive if you buy the Canon or Kenko versions. There no optics involved in extension tubes so no great disadvantage of buying non Canon ones, except for build quality.

Can anyone confirm if these work on the EOS 400D ?

I phoned my local Jessops and they were not sure :roll:

Thanks

picked mine up today, using them now with my 400D. Build quality can't complain for the price but it does the job. Well worth the £22.49. Be quick as these are being discontinued.

Well i just picked mine up but i dontk now how to work it properly!??!

Is there supposed to be any glass in the middle!? I dont know too much about these extension tubes but when i fit my nifty fifty or even my sigma 50-150mm lens i hear the lens trying to focus but its all soo blurry. This happens with all 3 different exentsion tubes. When even put one in with the 50mm it still doesn't focuses....

help!

Macro is generally better with manual focus. If shooting handheld, set focus to somewhere near & then move the camera back & forth to achieve accurate focus.

Depth of field with macro is VERY limited.

Extension tubes shouldn't have glass in the middle, their purpose is simply to move the lens away from the body which allows it to focus closer. Teleconverters on the other hand do contain glass and increase the focal length but they reduce the light (one stop for a 1.4x teleconverter).

AF isn't really going to work, you're best switching to manual focus - even if AF does work, the depth of field is so shallow it's probably not going to focus as you want. My using manual focus you can get focus where you want with the limited depth of field. Your focus is going to be limited as well, you need to have items very close to the front element of the lens.

They've gone from the website; looks like I've missed out on these, shame, I could really do with a set!

I'm borrowing a 100mm Macro lens at the moment and I'm quite reluctant to spent £60+ on a set of extension tubes for a lens I don't own, but really want more than 1:1 magnification!
