Extension Tubes vs Teleconverters ...

Postby kctsang » Fri Nov 20, 2009 11:13 pm


I have been using both items before, however I find that teleconverters gives me greater flexibility in terms of focusing range, while X-tubes seems to give sharper pictures at the expense of focusing range. So wondering about your experiences with these items and which item you would be using most often for macro work. At the moment I am using a TC14 with my MN 105mm most often...


:D :D :D

So stacking techniques sounds to me like using the bellows, however with bellows one has to
go manual for aperture and exposure... Also with bellows one can reverse the lens for even greater
magnification, and DOF almost next to nothing. Have you tried this Richard ??

However this is no good for butterflies .... I think ..

:D :D :D
