Vello Auto Extension Tube Set for Canon EF/EF-S Mounts and Lenses
Key Features
  • Shortens Minimum Focus Distance of Lens
  • Provides Macro Capability
  • Full Autofocus Compatibility
  • 13, 21, and 31mm Tubes
The Auto Extension Tube Set for Canon EF/EF-S Mounts and Lenses 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 EF/EF-S Mounts and Lenses contains three extension tubes of 13, 21, 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.

Vello EXT-CD 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.

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.

question

If I added all three to my 24-70mm, what would the focal length become?
Asked by: Geoffrey
it doesn't change the focal length of a lens, it changes the ability for you to focus closer to items you normally couldn't with that lens. 1.4x or 2.0x tele extenders extend the focal length of a lens.

Why does my 18-135mm Canon EFS lens not autofocus with these extension tubes?
Asked by: Marita
The Vello Auto Extension Tube Set for Canon EF/EF-S Mounts and Lenses will have an extremely narrow area that can be focused--you might be slightly too close or slightly too far away; even a few millimeters difference can cause the focus to be lost. Always try to use a tripod for macro photography.

question

Will this work with a flash?
Asked by: Anonymous
A standard hot shoe flash will be somewhat ineffective when using extension tubes. I advise you to use a ring light instead, which are designed for use with macro photography, such as the Stellar Lighting Systems STL-80R: http://bhpho.to/1jMiGMe
