Kenko Auto Extension Tube Overview

The Kenko Auto Extension Tube Set DG contains three tubes of different length - 12mm, 20mm, and 36mm - which can be used individually or in any combination to obtain the desired magnification. Actual magnification effect changes with each specific lens.

This DG Extension tube set has upgraded "Gate-Array IC" circuitry to work better with digital SLR's and some of the digital SLR lenses, like the Nikon DX (e.g. 17-55mm, 10.5mm) digital-only lenses.

Extension tubes are designed to enable a lens to focus closer than its normal set minimum focusing distance. Getting closer has the effect of magnifying your subject (making it appear larger in the viewfinder and in your pictures). They are exceptionally useful for macro photography, enabling you to convert almost any lens into a macro lens at a fraction of the cost while maintaining its original optical quality.

The extension tubes have no optics. They are mounted in between the camera body and lens to create more distance between the lens and film plane. By moving the lens farther away from the film or CCD sensor in the camera, the lens is forced to focus much closer than normal. The greater the length of the extension tube, the closer the lens can focus.

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

The Kenko Auto Extension Tube Set DG is compatible with Nikon DSLR cameras and F-mount lenses and is optimized to work with Autofocus lenses.
Kenko's Auto Focus extension tubes are designed with all the circuitry and mechanical coupling to maintain auto focus and TTL auto exposure with most Nikon lenses given there is enough light (at f/5.6 or brighter) to activate the cameras AF system properly.

Kenko tube set is a great way to turn one of your telephoto lenses into a macro lens, allowing you to focus closer to the object. They are good quality and come in handy for macro photography if you don't have a macro lens.

Worth The Extra Money

These extension tubes are a little bit more expensive than others but they are made out of metal and very durable. Based on reviews on this site and others, people seemed to be happier with these extension tubes and reported fewer problems. I could have gotten extension tubes for as little as $30 but these are worth the extra money in my opinion. You get what you pay for!

Great product; great price

This is my second set, the first was superb for YEARS of fairly heavy use, then one of the tubes stopped connecting. Solid, effective, worth the price!

question

I returned one set of Vello tubes and am having pretty much the same problems with the 2nd set. With all 3 on a 200mm macro Nikon lens, I get FE for aperture. And there is vignetting with the tubes. Put on a 300mm 2.8 lens, it tries to focus but never locks. Does the Kenko set have the same reduced inner diameter that causes vignetting and are they likely to have the same problems?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Kenko Auto Extension Tubes have a reduced inner diameter, however they will not cause vignette when being used.

With these tubes you will be able to control the aperture of the lenses on the control dials of your camera the way you normally do.
