Vello Auto Extension Tube Set for Nikon F

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.

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.

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].

If 36mm extension tube is used with Nikon AF-S DX ...

If 36mm extension tube is used with Nikon AF-S DX 17-55mm f/2.8G ED lens at 55mm what is image size and min. focus distance?
Asked by: Steven
Using an extension tube calculator I found on line, it will be approximately 220 mm assuming a maximum magnification of 0.20X for your lens. The new magnification would be 0.85X.
