Vello Auto Extension Tube Set for Nikon F
Key Features
  • Shortens Minimum Focus Distance of Lens
  • Provides Macro Capability
  • Full Autofocus Compatibility
  • 12, 20, and 36mm Tubes
The Auto Extension Tube Set for Nikon F 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 Nikon F contains three extension tubes of 12, 20, and 36mm 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 compatible with all AF and AF-S lenses. Electronic aperture control is not possible with Nikon AI lenses. 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.

These extension tubes retain full automation with Nikon Z

I'm using these Vello extension tubes on a Nikon Z6 with the 24-200 Z lens. The electrical contacts retain full auto-exposure and auto-focus. They are well-built and attach securely. As of the time of my purchase, Nikon is not selling Z-compatible extension tubes. I saw cheaper tubes on the B&H web site, but I bought these because of good experiences with other Vello products.

Flex alarmingly with longer lenses

These plastic extension tubes probably work just fine with shorter lenses, however, using them on a RF 100-500 + 1.4x TC, these tubes flexed so much, that consistant focussing was a challenge.

You can't use all 3 at once without applying torque

By Bruce

Regardless of order, 3 extensions cause at least one contact to be weak. The order doesn't seem to matter and two tubes always work, so I can't figure out where the weak contact is.

Totally useless with canon R5

By Mark

Both the 12 and the 20 lock up the camera almost immediately. This is with 2 different canon RF lenses. Seems pretty strange considering they should contain only connector wires to go between the body and the lens - no fancy electronics. Guess I'll have to buy the canon set. Thought I could save some money. I've bought extension tubes from 3rd party companies for previous camera systems and never had a problem.

A great intro to macro photography

By Jacob
Rated 5 out of 5

These are an inexpensive way to get into macro photography. Autofocus works great on my Z5, and overall that's going to depend more on the performance on your particular camera as light is lessened, as these do reduce the amount of light hitting the sensor. My only complaint is that they don't come with a bag or something for storage, as they do tend to get a bit dusty inside, and with the mirrorless sensors so exposed you can end up with dust on the ends, so get yourself a bag and keep a blower handy when using them.

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.

question

I just received the Vello Auto Extension Tube Set for Nikon. I have a D90 camera, and I'm using a Nikon DX AF-S Nikkor 35 mm 1:1.8k G lens. I tried using the 12mm extension tube and see nothing through the view finder. I tried it outside with plenty of sunshine, and yes, the lens cap was off, but I still didn't see anything. Also, I know you can't set the aperture with the tubes, so can I still shoot in manual or do I need AUTO?
Asked by: Jane
Everything should work fine with what you have. Since this is a Auto version and not the Manual version, you can control the aperture of the lens with the tubes in place. Be sure that that on the camera, the aperture is open all the way. While the image will be dimmer than without the tubes, you should see clearly enough.If you still have an issue, please email us with your experience. [email protected]
