You can use the camera mount coupling adapter and lens mount coupling adapter alone or with combination of any or all three extension tubes for extreme Macro photography. Since there is no other optical components been added, the image preserve the original optical property of the lens. This is a much desired way to turn your existing lens into a MACRO LENS.

    Not a premium product certainly, but well worth what the manufacturer is currently charging. The anodized aluminum tube is solid and well-threaded, and the interfaces with camera body and lens, though a little loose, are serviceable. I spent the afternoon yesterday doing macro shooting with the largest extender in place on my camera, and I was not disappointed. I would recommend this product to amateurs who want to experiment with macro shooting without paying for a macro lens.

    Just remember that you will not be able to focus on infinity, and the lens will not communicate with the camera when these extension tubes are in place. Therefore, focusing should be set to manual, the subject should be close (a few inches at most), and the camera should be set to Aperture Priority or Manual. The aperture on most automatic lenses will be at whatever the maximum is for the lens (f/1.4, f/2.8, f/4 or whatever). This means depth of field will be very, very shallow – unless, of course, you want to remove the little tab on the lens interface that holds the lens aperture open. It appears this can be done by removing two tiny screws. Doing so, I expect, would allow the lens aperture to snap shut, thus increasing depth of field but also greatly increasing exposure time. Lenses with manual aperture control are, of course, another story and can be controlled independently. In any case, a tripod and cable release are usually a good idea no matter what.

    Note: I had better luck with my zoom lenses than with my 28mm or 50mm primes. The primes were extremely limited in their focal range, whereas the zooms allowed me to move the camera in or away from the subject within a range of several inches. This makes a big difference when you are photographing subjects of various sizes.

    This review is from: Fotodiox Macro Extension Tube Set Kit for Sony A-Series Alpha Digital SLRs DSLR-A350, A300, A200, A700, A900, A100, A380, A500, A550, A850, A450,A290, A390, A580, SLT-A33, A55, Minolta Maxxum 5D, 7D, 7, 9xi, 7xi, 5xi (Camera)

    This is a great little product for the price. Because it does not have any electronic connectors, I had to enter the menu to change the “release shutter without lens” to Enabled. This is a “feature” of the Sony camera and not a flaw in the extension tubes (all other non-wired extensions tubes will be the same). Since alpha-wired extension tubes cost significantly more, I was more than happy to find the one setting I needed to change.

    I did notice a few owners of older Sony Alpha models are saying this set is not compatible with their camera models. It appears that Sony removed the “release shutter without lens” menu option in a200 and returned in sometime before the a55. A quick search online states that the menu option was removed (and thus there is no way to use a non-alpha wired lens in P, A, S, or any other mode other than M). According to Sony, full manual mode should permit the release of the shutter, even if the camera base cannot communicate with the lens. However, from other reviewers, it appears this may not be the case with the a200 or a350 models.

    For those who are concerned about macro depth-of-field, you can remove the metal piece that opens the aperture when you attach the lens. Because the screws holding the metal piece in place are small (and the price of the tubes is easy on the wallet), I purchased a second set so I can have one adapter that opens the aperture and one without the metal piece so the aperture stays at its maximum F-Stop. With both tube sets attached, I was able to take macro images with the longest side of the image spanning just under 3/8 of an inch.

    I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to take macro shots using any of the newer Sony Alpha models.

    Although it does not list it , this extension kit works with the A-330.
    The kit is made of quality materials, cannot see paying any more than this kit. It’s a quite simple design
    This worked good with my 18-200 lens & my 50 mm prime lens.
    (FYI, camera must be on manual mode for it to work)
    Very happy with this kit , I would recommend it if you cannot afford a macro lens.
