    Thank you so much for explaining how to get the extension tubes off. I was freaking out but due to your helps it was a short lived freak out….tks everybody.

    Now just have to learn how to use my extension tubes.

    Hey, guys. I have the Nikon d3000 and it does not come with a Dof prewiev button. How can I fix the aperture? If I have the camera on and remove the lens it just go down to zero. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    I have been considering trying macro extension tubes to further progress my photography.
    Your article seems to (very lucidly) explain the pros and cons and considering how inexpensive they are it seems folly not to experiment.
    Thanks for such a superb website.

    Hi Neil,

    I have a Nikon D 50 I have the same extension Tubes as yours. I just bought them. Do you have any book out on how to use them? What to use as setting? I have them on my camera now. I have tried to take a picture of a rose with water drops on it. I am not getting the whole rose, But I do want to get the water drops up close to.
    Can you help me?

      There’s a little silver screw that slides towards the camera body – doesn’t take much :)

    Hey guys! great website for discussions on the tubes. I have a Nikon d5000 and yesterday I bought on Trademe the Macro rings extention. It looks great in the viewfinder, just like a powerful microscope really, but my photos look really dark, when i change the ISO to high, it gets too grainy (of course..daaa) but has anyone there any suggestion on how to bypass this problem? I use a 18-55mm and 70-200mm lens by the way. all in manual as the seller suggests. f stop dead, everything dead, except ISO. use flash at all times? Great post about tubes by the way! and the shots are awesome!

    I very much appreciated the aperature control tip – easy to find my depth of field button on my Canon by checking my manual. Thanks so much!
