Macro Shooting
The EXT-ND2 Auto Focus Extension Tube Set shortens the minimum focusing distance of your lens, so you can capture the minute details of flaky pastries or shoot the internal mechanics of a watch. With these easy-to-use extension tubes, you can shoot your subjects up close and in detail, without an expensive macro lens.
Single or Combined Power
The 12, 20, and 36mm tubes can be used individually or stacked together. If you need to get just a little closer, use one of the tubes. For greater magnification, use all three.
Autoexposure and Autofocus
Made with electronic contacts, the tubes let you enjoy the convenience of full autofocus and autoexposure compatibility. This makes it easy to capture an image in the moment, without fiddling with your settings.
Lightweight and Durable
These extension tubes offer lightweight durability and won't weigh down your camera setup. Metal mounts provide additional robustness and stand up to switching between lenses for long-lasting use.

Vello EXT-ND Reviews

Excellent low cost tubes

By Jerry
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-30

I wanted to try macro shots without buying a macro lens. I'll likely make that step soon, but these gave me a chance to experiment. I used a Canon prime 50mm f/1.2 lens with them. I had to use the shorter two, the longer one would not work with the 50mm lens as it focused too close - my lens had to touch the subject. Photos look crisp and clear.

Well made

Only used it once so far but it was VERY easy to use. Still trying to figure out how to get what I want from it but I like how much closer I can get with this extension tube set.

Sturdy Construction.

Tight fit, almost to tight. Mounts could be polished more. Otherwise they work great.

Rings jammed and won't separate

Haven't used them much, but they do the job. I have a nice macro lens, but these can be useful.

Cheap way to start macro

Always wanted to add macro photography to my adventures and this is a great way to try it out without spending the bucks for a dedicated macro lens. If I end up wanting to do it often then then maybe but for now these are working fine and take great photos while keeping auto focus if you choose to use it. Mainly use manual focus but find the auto focus to work well for quick takes.

Does autofocus work for pre-AFS lenses, the AF and AF-D lenses that don't have focus motors in the lens but use the AF motor in the camera?
Asked by: Larry
Yes. The tubes have an extension mechanism for the AF "screwdriver" linkage that lets the motor in the camera body drive the mechanism in the lens. It works well as long as your extension is less than your focal length, i.e. using 12mm tube with a 20mm lens or a 36mm tube with a 50mm lens, If you do something like putting a 20mm lens on the 36mm tube or a 50mm lens on a 68mm stack of 12+20+36 tubes you'll probably have AF fail to lock.

I have a Nikon D5600 with an AF-P 18-55mm and an AF-P 70-300mm lens. Is this product comparable with my equipment? Thanks.
Asked by: Audrey
It certainly should be. Nikon DSLR lenses are all interchangeable and the extension tubes simply lack any lens ( they are just hollow tube with the two nikon mounts. You should be good to go.

Yes. You will need an EF-to-RF adapter in order to mount the Vello Auto Extension Tube set for EF/EF-S mount lenses (V2) but it will function well within this combination.
