Extension tubes

Aug 19, 2013
Did a quick test of one of the extension tubes this afternoon. Late in the day, hand held on the 18-70mm Nikkor. Not the sharpest since it was hand held, there was an occasional breeze and the light was failing, but I am encouraged by the result. I think under the right conditions I can get some decent images.

Keep 2 things in mind when using them - 1) they eat up a lot of light and 2) the MFD gets a lot closer, but at the same time the DOF gets razor thin. Couple those with any movement - yours or the targets - and they take some time to get used to, but once you do they open up a whole new world.
