Canon 9199A001 Overview

  • 1Description

The result of using extension tubes is that the distance from the back of the lens to the film surface is longer, which means you can take photographs at shorter distances to the subject. Extension tubes are thus commonly used for macro photography and sometimes for closeup portraits.

When using the camera's TTL metering system, no exposure compensation will be required (exposure compensation is required for handheld meters).

This updated version II is now also fully compatible with Canon Digital EF-S lenses, as well as standard photo EF and TS-E lenses.

Extension Tube EF 25 II is recommended for lenses with a focal length of 50mm and up (EF-S 18-55mm can be used at middle and tele zoom settings).

    Canon 9199A001 Reviews

    Extension Tube EF 25 II is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 239.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than a Hollow Tube The body of this extension tube is made of plastic, not metal. I have a set of Kenko extension tubes. Major differences between this OEM Canon tube and the Kenko version: (1) Bayonet that attaches to the camera is thicker on the Canon (2) Noticeably less slop from the Canon tube when affixed to the camera (3) The interior of the Canon tube is virtually non-reflective. This is the biggest and probably most important difference between this Canon 25mm tube and either the Kenko 20mm or 36mm tubes. It would be nice if Canon made a set of 3 similar to the Kenko version and provided a little more value for the money spent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon vs Kenko Normally I'm looking for the best deal for the best product when it comes to purchasing equipment for my bird photography. I don't blindly by one brand only. So when it came time to add extension tubes to my gear, I seriously looked at the Kenko tubes. Although Kenko's tubes are a great value, these tubes are made more for the lighter lenses, which in my case, wasn't going to work. My primary use for these tubes would be with my heavy 600. I needed a strong, well made tube that could handle that weight, which Canon can do. Now I have no worries if my lens mount will become misaligned, break, etc. because I have the strength of Canon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition This extension tube is a must if you want to take close up pictures without the extra expense of having to buy a macro lens. It is so good that you have to use a focal length of 24mm or greater if you don't want to remove your lens filters. As long and you can get light on the subject, at 24mm, you can have your subject virtually touching the lens and get a sharp picture. Even if you have a macro lens in your collection, buy the extender and you will open new avenues to be creative with your photography. It is best to use manual focusing with this extension tube.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The path to ultra high quality macros. I'm using this extension tube primarily with my Canon EF 70-200 f4L IS lens. The images are stunning and the extension tube/lens combination is easy to use. If you've already got some excellent lenses and don't need magnification beyond 1-to-1, then this is an inexpensive solution to seriously consider, particularly as compared to buying a dedicated macro lens. With my 70-200 I get the advantage of exceptional optics combined with power of image stabilization for incredible shooting easy. Used in my system (Canon 5D MkII with L lenses) I see no downside to this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Macro It does not get me to a true 1:1 with the lenses I have. That said, it does give me good macro, perfectly clear images and great versatility. It is light, saves me space in my bag and is many times cheaper than a real Canon macro. It gives me a fast macro or an IS macro depending on which lens I use it with. It gets 4 stars due to the price which I feel is a bit steep for something that has no optics. Auto focus works, but I recommend manual focus due to the razor thin depth of field (esp with a fast lens). If you need true 1:1 macro, it may not meet your needs. -ESM-

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets You a Bit Closer I have a 1:1 100mm macro lens but still can't get as close as I wanted to. Read about the extension tube and thought it might work. While you can get 3 tubes from another brand for just a little more money, I wanted to get one from Canon. The tube is high quality as expected from Canon. The tube works flawlessly. With the 100mm, this gives me a 1.25: 1 ratio. For closeup, the autofocus actually improves over the 100mm without the tube. I tried this with my 400mm lens and it was interesting...the immediate benefit was the improved minimum focusing distance...it goes from 8+ feet to something like 5-6 ft which was what I needed for taking hummingbird pictures. In short, love the extension tube. I may get a couple more in the near future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An all-time great accessory This finally just became available again, and it was worth the wait. I use it with my Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, and took the best butterfly pictures I have ever taken, all handheld. All the lens's automatic features are preserved. It allows me to do macro photography 5-8 feet from my subject, a great advantage with skittish butterflies and the like. The extension tube is small and light and very portable, so I take it with me just in case an unexpected macro opportunity arises. It is very well built, fits perfectly, and I expect to use it for many years to come.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent build quality, does what it's supposed to do. The best thing about this extension tube is the fact that you still get full control over your lens through the camera controls, unlike the cheaper tubes. Why would I get this over a dedicated Macro Lens? It's cheap and it doesn't take up much room in your camera bag. Why would I get a Macro lens instead? With a 100mm f/28 Macro for example you can still use it as a portrait lens. This tube, however, renders any lens to a macro lens ONLY. Of course, you could just take the tube off and now your lens is a normal lens again.

    question

    What kind of results can one expect using Canon's 70-300L? How much closer is focusing improved?
    Asked by: Daniel D.
    Basically you will use this so your Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens will be able to focus closer than the lens's native close focusing distance of 3.94' / 1.2 m. We were not able to find information as to how much closer but we would guess that bout 2' would not be unreasonable. People with telephoto lenses by this to do exactly this, get a closer focusing distance. This can be an excellent too.

    question

    I use Canon16-35mm f 2.8l II USM Canon 70D SLR to shoot video (ice hockey) and would like to have a little more zoom.. Would this extension help to achieve.. I do have 35-105 3.5-5.6 lens but due to low lighting and the super wide angle needed the Canon16-35mm f 2.8l II USM is the best thing for me at this time and the extra zoom would help.. So would it or it would not , if it would how much?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    An extension tube will not really be the most practical way to get more zoom, as these products are primarily used for close-ups and macro photography. I would advise you to go instead with a different lens that will still give you wide angle and a fast aperture, but also be able to extend to a standard focal length. For example, you could use the Canon 17-55mm f/2.8, and still retain the super wide angle, but achieve a closer zoom than 35mm: http://bhpho.to/1jlOUiD

    question

    is canon 70 - 200 ok ?
    Asked by: Howard A.
    I wouldn't recommend a 70-200mm with an extension tube, really. The longer the focal length of the lens, the less effective the magnification. For something like a prime 35mm or a 50mm lens, they can be fun to experiment with. You will be losing light and infinity focus with an extension tube, and AF doesn't work well if at all. (usually I just focus manually then rock back and forth slightly to get the focal point right where I want it). Honestly, if you're looking to get into macro photography then you're probably better off with a macro lens... they can be much more versatile and give you better freedom to compose without being limited to a very shallow distance from your subject at all times like an extension tube demands. Canon makes an EF 100mm f/2.8 USM lens which isn't crazy expensive, and is a ton of fun to use. I got my extension tubes just as a way to have some quick fun with a couple of my primes, on days I didn't feel like lugging around a dedicated macro lens.
