The Auto Extension Tube Set for Canon EOS from Vello allows your lens to focus closer than its normal minimum focus distance. By placing distance between your camera body and lens, focusing distance is shortened and the effect of magnifying your subject is created. Extension tubes enable macro performance for lenses not otherwise able to focus that close, and are also suited for close-up portraiture. The Auto Extension Tube Set for Canon EOS contains three extension tubes of 13mm, 21mm and 31mm lengths. They can be used individually or together in seven distinct combinations to create the desired magnification effect. For closer focusing use the larger extension tube or stack the tubes together. Extension tubes have no optical elements so do not degrade the quality of your lenses.

These tubes are fully automatic tubes in that they are able to communicate all electronic functions from lens to camera including autofocus and auto exposure.  They are built with metal lens mounts for durability and longevity and enable you to convert almost any lens into a macro lens at a fraction of the cost while maintaining the lens' original optical quality.

    I believe this is a great add-on if you want to do close-shot photography. The alternative would be dedicated macro lenses which come in a mind headache array of IS vs. non-IS, USM/STM vs. noisy AF, and L vs. non-L glass... and they aren't cheap. The product works as described. I unlocked the 31mm piece from the lot and fitted it to my camera. I like to be gentle when handling stuff but this tube required a bit more force than usual. I can't say if this is normal or room-for-improvement. Also the metal rim on each tube had smudges on them (as if someone had used them before me). I was able to wipe them clean but those aren't great first impressions at all. After switching on my camera, I set my 18-55 lens to 55, switched from AF to manual focus and wow! You can get really up close and personal.

    Right in the middle (price and quality)

    I bought this set of extension tubes to get closer results with my EF-S 60mm Macro.

    It does work, but you can see the quality is not what was expected. Unfortunately, there's a little play in between each of them, so they don't offer a snug fit with the lens and it's even worse when stacking them. Is this quality control and I got a bad set?

    All in all, it does the job of greater magnification, but you get what you pay for (the wobbling isn't great for the feel you get when holding the camera and lens in your hands and I can also imagine the dust that will make its way into the chamber through the cracks).

    Combined with the EF-S 60mm Macro, it gives the opportunity to go from 1x to about 3x by just rotating the focus ring and moving the camera back and forth. I don't see why you would use them separately as it's more versatile when stacked.

    If it was not for the lack of quality control, I would definitely recommend this to those who want to get into closer macro photography.

        Comments about Vello Auto Extension Tube Set for Canon EOS:

        Within an hour after receiving the extension tubes I captured several photographs of a bee on wild flowers. I look forward to entering some of them in competitions. Macro purists may take exception but these photos but I think some are spectacular. Maybe a macro lens is superior but the cost of these rings bring macro photography in reach of a lot of people who would otherwise not be able to enjoy that hobby.

        The Vello Auto Extension Tube Set for EOS, functions as stated and can save you money when considering buying a macro lens. The components are light weight and easy to use. The build quality is good. They may not last forever but they make a great addition to any film kit.

These are pretty affordable and work good. I find that they are great for playing around with and just trying to unleash some creativity!

              • Plants And Insects

              Comments about Vello Auto Extension Tube Set for Canon EOS:

              I have used this product as it is intended, for macro photography. While I do have a dedicated macro lense (canon 100mm macro lens (non L series)), I have used the extension tubes with that and other lenses to get closer to my subjects.. plants and insects. I have been pleased with the results with and without a tripod, though more so with the tripod and remote release.

              I am still playing with the extension tubes and learning different combinations, so I can not give the best review.

              The con is sometimes it is hard to get tack sharp focus and at times I have to move in or pull back with manual focus, but I think that is more of a lens issue.

              I would recommend it. And the 3 tubes are less expensive than 1 canon tube

                Comments about Vello Auto Extension Tube Set for Canon EOS:

                A good way to add capability to your existing photo kit. I have teamed the extenders with a Canon 7D and a 24-105 L lens for some really nice macro shots of various bugs. This is an inexpensive way to add macro capability to your bag. The tubes weigh virtually nothing, are tough enough for general use (you won't be doing anything strenuous when shooting macro...)

                A better set of instructions, perhaps a short guide to shooting macro, in the packet would be a nice addition.

                    They work well, AF jumps around with some lenses but manual is always an option, really left off 1 star because of the release clip is sometimes difficult and honestly I should've kept my macro, if something flys by your not getting a shot unless it's right on top of you

                            Great way to reduce MFD of my telephoto lens. I have used it for close-ups of birds that come to our feeder. I like the feather detail I get when I can get closer to the bird and don't have to crop the image as much.

                              I paid a bit extra to get the extension tubes that had the pins for autofocusing. The tubes go on and come off as easily as any lens or extender I've used, and they work pretty much as advertised.

                              However the tubes don't really 'feel' like they're worth the extra premium over the cheaper versions. There's just a little bit of wiggle between the lens and the body when they're on, and I've found that the battery on my 70D drains overnight if I leave the tubes on the camera, even when I switch the camera off. It took me a few days to pin it down, but it was definitely the tubes that was causing it.

                              All in all, I can deal with the foibles, but I wouldn't have any buyers remorse if the set was about 50%-75% of what I paid for them.

                                  I am using the extension tubes for close up Macro photography. I had an older manual type which worked well but this set with the electronic connection makes macro shooting so much easier. I found that the tubes connect easily to both my camera body and lens. Overall I good product.
