Extension Tubes or filters?
I just purchased a set of extension tubes and macro filters so that I could get better macro shots. The extension tubes ran about $70 and the set of filters (7) was about $25. Cost wise, as most of you know, it is better than getting a true macro lens (for now anyway).
The extension tubes are a bit tricky to use. I did not do enough research prior to purchase to know that there was a difference in the types of tubes that you can get. You have manual and autofocus luckily I go the set that can do autofocus.
It has only been a few hours of playing and so far I am happy with them. It will take me a minute to figure out the right combination to get the image that I am looking for.
What are your thoughts on using filters or extension tubes?
Here are a few examples SOOC (straight out of camera).
